Fire the judge

haiku

the energy you use

to judge another

why bother, it gives you wrinkles

Elephant

poetry

I am

strong as I walk the plains

memory unmatched

i know all there is to gain

as a symbol, I give you luck

do with it what you will

as a totem I give you strength

fight another day I say

I make you stronger

than the average man

walk with head held high

be one with me

strong as

10,000 men , taking on the world

doesn’t matter if you’re boy or girl.

when you’re done

the world will know

I Me My fee fi foe!

emotional to the max

poetry

Quick! Tell yourself every bad thing.

Quick! Think of all the worse outcomes.

Quick! Now did it do any good?

Message to self, for our mental health.

The day was a bad day only cause i made it so.

I’ve yet to know how to let it flow.

Work in progress.

In 💔 with your fav rapper

poetry

I had to getaway

the road was my muse

I refused to settle

i then met him

he paid my bills for a year

said anything you want my dear

don’t tell

it never fails

to go this route…

No feelings involved

he was my ticket here

he told me don’t worry

nothing to fear

against my better judgment

thought of him as my husband

and then everything went to hell

it started with needing bail

for what you say

I was dumb okay…

I should’ve never went announced

to be unexpected and he was undetected

was a problem for him

There was a fight

I tried with all my might

to leave him/it alone but

I felt beholden to him

saving my life in so many ways

but life needs to be golden for me

without him.

Lesson Learned

you’re down? stay there bitch

poetry

work hard to keep it up the facade of being present

work to maintain, never show shame of all the things I’ve done in my past

I’ve asked forgiveness, hoping for a one way ticket out of this wilderness

July hasn’t been kind, messing with my mind. What If I wasn’t here?

Sorry Universe, this like gets/got me down, feeling like a clown

All the work I put into keeping the facade up, to see it come down

Cry myself to sleep, shout into a pillow, allowing myself to willow in the wind of disappointment

I’m not this, this is not me

You’re breaking me down, is it to build me up?

Please advise.
