Poem: True Colors

You push people away Then wonder why they did not stay Even in the mirror you aren't face to face With yourself because you live in space Where everything is and nothing isn't Locked inside a self inflicted prison There are many layers to everything Even when you think you see all that can be...

Poem: Break The Cycle

You were dealt a bad hand Want someone to understand It was not fair, that is so true Still, it's up to you How you play those cards Pick at the wound or heal the scars The actions that follow are yours Open the windows break the hinges off the doors To your soul Would... Continue Reading →

Poem: Passing These Things On To You

Poetry Prompt: Outcast

The invite to the table isn't all its cracked up to be Everytime I spoke they would silence me Speaking over my words As if they were allergic to nouns and verbs I had something to say Their envy got in the way So out of place Tolerance running out of space Laughing hoping the...

Poetry Prompt: Olive Branch

She lost the key the day that she gave up her voice Not surrendered by choice Taken without consent Trust fractured and spent Wasn't afforded the space for her identity to grow Forced to go with the flow Carrying unworthiness upon her back Catching flack and taking smacks Walking on eggshells A challenge with no...
