Something Real and Raw.

Loneliness is real and I’ve been struggling with it a lot in the past year. The sensation has increased in the past three months because all of a sudden a lot seemed to have changed. I don’t know if I’ll be able to explain it but I’ll try my best. It’s when life hits you…

Control

Just like you couldn’t control when your sun went down,You’ll never be able to control when your path shines bright.Just like you can’t control the waves,You can always choose which ones to surf.You can’t control the words people say,But you’ll always be able to control how you search for peace and silence.

Warrior

There’s a little girl sulking in the corner wondering why everything is her fault. She’s sitting in the dark wondering why she keeps getting pressured into growing up so fast. She’s wondering about all the fairytales and the stories she’d been told whether they exist. She’s wondering why the world is on her shoulders. This…

Things that lurk beneath the surface.

I find it quite fascinating what hides between our words, our concerns…What lurks beneath the surface of that mask we wear everyday…Is it fear, kindness, hatred, a certain grudge, grief or despair?
