I Looked Inside

I looked inside,Into my depth, My night I thought will never end. I tumbled over the things I couldn’t see. I tried to focus into the darkness,And that was when the stars appeared. ©Zeina A.G

The Whisper

The outside voices mock you for being different,And for expressing yourself. Outside voices try to bring you down,To drown you with their negativity,Until you start doubting yourself. They can drive you insane,And make you question your worth,Until you’ve had enough. Just when you’re about to scream,A whisper from within nudges you gently,And lovingly to remind…

A Little Throwback

So this showed up in my facebook memories today. Last year like today I sent “I’m Still Here” to it’s first contest. As soon as I got the news that it lost, another contest opened with a theme “Things will never be the same” So grateful it made it to the top 11 there.đŸ€žTiny steps🙌

If you want to…

You.

Maybe you were that warm gust of wind,That embraced me on a cold lonely night, Or maybe you were that stranger who smiled sympathetically,When I felt tears stinging my eyes. Maybe you sent me a sign,In a cloud or a sunset. Maybe you were that bird that perched near me,And then flew right after I…

Sometimes

Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth listening to you ,Because your words seem truthful,But your actions aren’t consistent. Sometimes I wonder why I ever trusted you,Because all you do is hide behind empty promises,And words that you don’t mean. Sometimes I wonder if it’s only my imagination ,Because you seem to be there,But only in…

Lessons Grief Has Taught Me.

Grief is never consistent, you could be fine for one minute and completely break down the next. For a moment, you could be the shoulder that everyone cries on . You could feel un-stoppable and courageous just for making it through a difficult situation. Then for the next few days you could break down from…
