blooming onion

poetry

I’m over 40

don’t know where I’m going

don’t know when it will last

the agony of regrets in my past

each day I’m given

should be worth celebrating right?

adventure about to take flight

any day now

life is mine for the taking

I’m just making

excuses.

am i lazy or unmotivated

or both

gotta shake it off

more Mariah than Taylor

made for me

life, easy, breezy

by the horns

gonna make it

so it is and it is so.

here’s the show!

amerikkkanized chaos

poetry

It’s not my fault

I didn’t do it

I can’t take your pain away

my color of my skin

has nothing to do with the pain you’re in

dude

write it out, muck about

don’t take out my

brother

there’s another shooting

anger is brewing

when will it be enough?

we won’t lie down

no one gave us a crown

or a pedestal you put us on

you show your true colors but God sees above all others

justice will be swift

and you’ll deserve it

or haven’t you heard

it can be changed like this-

*snaps fingers*

freedom needed

poetry

you can put make-up on it

you can drink it away

you can be bi, straight or gay

the vessel is the same

learning to live in the now

not circle the drain

i want to forget my pain

drained

poetry

so close to my dreams

can’t get close enough it seems

circling the pipes

nights I stay up

lonely, but don’t give a fuck

please inspire me

don’t know who I’m talking to

just hoped the message come through

I’m drained

need some relief.

some holy night

poetry

this was the day

plans were made

you betrayed my heart

not okay

this was the day

we are to say our vows

how did I not see this before?

My life isn’t over

I wont shoulder this disaster

on my own

What does this mean?

I’m keen on letting you figure it out

quotes

“Maybe I was reaching for authenticity through a funhouse mirror. I didn’t know. I just didn’t want to be who I was. It turns out that’s not a specific enough request.”

— R. Eric Thomas, Here For It(AmazonBookshop)


meet the strong

poetry

everyday we get up

rise to the occasion

sometimes it’s amazing

until it’s not.

we try our best

put on our super-hero chest

fake it till you make it

the chain is stronger than you think

i realize everyday it’s how you think

thoughts become things

it’s time to think great thoughts

try it, it’s you.

quotes

Sometimes I sit and wish I could freeze time right where I am. That way I’ll never lose all of the lovely things that are around me. But time keeps going and things keep getting lost. But I’m still living because something new and beautiful is going to come around eventually and that right there is something to stick around for.

quotes

Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

-Ernest Hemingway
