I Pray

I pray that one day you may look at me and see me, not the colour of my skin or my ancestors' sin... I pray to see the day when we finally realise that we are spirits with bodies and not bodies with spirits...I pray that people may come to see that not all Blacks… Continue reading I Pray

Humans with no humanity…

Smile...Tell that to the young Somalian with no food to eat, no water to drink , only bones left as the world looks at them as worthless toothpicks, to the soldier who risks his life for less than a penny, fights for peace, yes, that is ironic. Smile...Tell that to the hooker at your street… Continue reading Humans with no humanity…

Poetry

Wired Realization

Wired to act as if everything is okay in the midst of chaos, Wired to shy away from negativity, as if bad doesn't exist, Wired to display strength, breaking away from those deemed as weak Without realizing, we feed, condone and fuel triggers, Without realizing it, we tell the oppressed and troubled that they aren't… Continue reading Wired Realization

Are you okay?

Should I keep running this race called life? Contemplating my existence and purpose, I met an angel, an addition to my guardians...   You are rejected and despised, everyday you look at me...disguised. Disguised under that fake smile and those passionate eyes, but I see through all your lies. The slits on your wrists speak… Continue reading Are you okay?

What if…

Twenty five and confused about life, possibly my worst fear right now. Only a few months away and I can't help but wonder what will become of me. No dreams nor goals, nothing to ponder upon. I wish to be a caterpillar, guaranteed that one day I will become a butterfly. Mind so great and… Continue reading What if…

Prayer

My daily bread, My soothing bed All I ask is to be strong, A potion to change my song. Allow me to be at peace, yet trouble me enough to wake me from my slumber. I want to be happy, Influence the world to not be so crappy. I do not know how to put… Continue reading Prayer

Satisfied

We all have to believe in some form of higher power, the only remedy to soothe our open wounds. (Colossian 3:15) Today I woke up blue, wondering what bills will be on my balance sheet, queued. Today I woke up weary, wondering what my veins really looked like; green or clear exposed to air, just… Continue reading Satisfied

Diary of a hopeless romantic - short story

Her break: part 2

Puzzled by the world, a new door opens itself, allowing her to revive the words " I care". This boy so naive claiming that infatuation is not what drives, that they are the perfect pair. Only a few have crossed her path, less vocal than he, yet better at displaying their feelings. Display seems not… Continue reading Her break: part 2

Broken winged angel

Frightened to lose me he held me so tightly, unable to utter these words; stay, I need you...

Poetry

Indefinite

No one ever tells you that you might just fall out of love, That the butterflies you once felt will suddenly fade, leaving a blank space. No one ever tells you how hard it will be, To keep smiling when he upsets you and forgets about you. No one ever tells you that... Is it… Continue reading Indefinite
