Love Will Win The Day (Prayers for Orlando)

Love Will Win The Day* Hate wins another round 50 bodies shot dead on the ground A disgrace to the true believers of the Muslim religion a message from the devil delivered by a subhuman carrier pigeon Our hearts today in America are cloudy and gray but, GOD’s greatest gift-Love will eventually win the day …

Spider Web

I am complicated; I am made of a spider web. I am a riddle nothing more and nothing less. I am an untitled fiction inside of non-fictional universe. My head is a flesh of another head; It was shredded, Colored red in the color of blood. I have a chaotic mind. My flaws are not …

Untitled and Upset

We got vets begging Living in the streets Can’t get a job to Get them on their feet The economy is in a decline They say we need a little thought And profit to put the past behind But they underestimate The vast majority Of employable minorities Because they act like they can’t see When …

Intertwined – A Poem for C. Drake

Keep your mouth shut — because no one can know The secrets we keep and never really show If he finds out, I’m a dead woman for sure But I’m only doing me — to keep myself pure Your spirit like mist after a rain Refreshing to touch, driving me insane Seven years later and …

I Used to Feel Home

I look at her and she looks just like me. However, she is different from the “Self” I used to be. She has my eyes but the reflection is showing me a whole another world— her gaze is like an aftermath of a disaster. We share the same skin but with different shapes and spaces; hers …

Things That are True P5 – Sorrow

Sorrow is not meant to be wasted. During the last three years, every good thing that made up my life has slowly and mercilessly been stripped from me: my love and best friend, family, job, travel, money, independence, stability. Everything that makes one feel human- gone. It is so real my mom actually said to …
