Atoms 4.5/5 (2)

We are made of atoms.
Atoms, dancing delicately together to compose flesh and blood and feelings and us.
There was a time when we didn’t exist, when we were nothing but a daydream created by the universe.
And then our parents met and their atoms came together and created us, creatures who’s existence seems far too complex to be possible.
But we’re here.
Billions and billions and billions of atoms perfectly working together, composing the music of life better than any symphony.
If we’re all made of the same atoms brought together in different ways, why are our lives built on bringing down others who aren’t the same as us?
Gender, skin color, sexual orientation,
Being different doesn’t mean we are broken,
Because in the end, we are all the same, fighting our way through existence on a planet working to bring us down.
Our atoms bring us together, so why do we act so apart?

Why? 4.63/5 (8)

Why ?
They feel like they have a penis, they’re above the opposite sex, but that’s not the case
They say boys will be boys, but when will boys be men?
When we were little girls,they said
“If he’s mean to you, it’s because he likes you”,
but we grew up to find out , they didn’t like us, they abused us.
When we got to middle school, we filled out our curves, but boys only saw a piece of ass.
They played with our hearts, and we soon realized our happily ever after doesn’t exist.
High school came around and we noticed boys weren’t young men,
they were dogs drooling with their tongues hanging out.
Women are taking the world, by the storm.
All you can hear is crickets chirping.
Eve wasn’t happy with adam, so eve found herself a mary.

Trees 5/5 (1)

Will you spare my life
And appreciate my beauty?
Some love me for the way I look
Others don’t even know i’m there.

They love to hang around me during the holidays,
And parties are always my time to shine
But only during the pinata.

They use me like i’m paper
when I could give so much life
If only they could see what I do for them.

They flatten my heart after I give them all my oxygen
I guess I’m not as beautiful as I thought I was,
If only I could speak.

Appreciate me before i’m all gone
You’ll die without me
If only I could warn them
If only I could speak.

If I told you,
would you listen?
If my roots didn’t hold me back
Would you see me?

Stop my death
In return I’ll give you life
I may be a tree
But I still have a heart.

I Believe

I believe..
I believe in freedom. The moment you have peace and love.
I believe you are the strongest person alive if you didn’t discriminate yourself.
I believe family is before and above anything.
I believe no one can tell you , you can’t or can achieve what you want.
I believe you can be what you believe to in.
I believe love is a neccesity not a want a must than a stupidity.
I believe in one self.
I believe in everyone.
I believe..

An ode to mutual feelings

This is an ode to the people who share the same feelings i do. And i don’t mean the romantic ones. I mean the excitement i share with my childhood best friend when we see each other after years without contact when his face lights up with joy i can’t help but feel we belong to the same power plant. This is an ode to the people who think like i do, to my sister who can figure out the ending to an episode of Supernatural within the first 10 minutes of watching it, because i figured it out too. This is an ode to the friends who appreciate you as much as you appreciate them, or when someone new extends themselves into your life to create that platonic tectonic relationship we are one moving in the same direction. Mutual feelings are more than love and lust. They are understanding. Knowing that I’m not alone in the way i think or feel. It’s how we connect to each other to create this ever expanding community. We feel it together. And i think, that’s the best feeling of all.

Expect The Unexpected

If we are expected to be perfect.
We wont be ready.
To fail.
To cry.
To say not now, this is too much.
Give us time.
Give us that single moment.
That serene moment of being safe in our own minds and bodies.
Now, our futures aren’t foretold.
Expect the unexpected they say.
But they never say what could happen.
How could one possibly know?.
How could you expect when you’re suddenly sitting in a room, looking at those distant memories and reminiscing in the glow of your life.
Thinking about a life that was long ago.
Smiling faces that are forever captured, the laughs that you can still hear.
It’s hard to say what we all won’t be able to see till it finally comes.
So how does one know when to expect the unexpected?.
For once we all look in fear but we do not tremble or cower.
But brace for the unknown.

Battle of the Sexes

See I don’t need feminism because I enjoy walking down the street thinking about who’s trying to sweep me up
I don’t need feminism because holding my keys between my fingers in the parking garage like a prison shank is just for the fun of it
I don’t need feminism because “no” really means keep trying and it might sound like a “drunk yes”
See I don’t need feminism because something as surface as the fabric on my body deciphers my quality of character, right?
Yeah, I don’t need feminism

Do you see that?
It looks like hope
Passing through the sky
Going from one mind to another

But look!
Hope is flying by
Not passing through a single mind
Hope lost all hope
Hopelessness was hope’s weakness.

Do you see that??
It looks like pleasure
Whirling around every mind it has trapped
With its lusts
And its wants
Who could resist its evil desires
Luring you in is all it requires
To get stronger and stronger

Do you see that???
It looks like forgiveness
Flowing through the hearts of others
Foretelling of those who seek forgiveness

But look!!
Forgiveness stopped following
Stopped flowing because it has broken too many hearts
Forgiveness only wants to be forgiven
If only forgiveness
Could foretell of it’s own forgiveness
Then forgiveness wouldn’t need to be forgiven

Do you see that????
It looks like pain
Striking the body, mind, and soul
Strangling any sign of hope
And choking forgiveness
While pain strengthens with every tear
Grows from every cry for help
And feeds
