A Message to God.

Hi everyone, My 3rd uncle passed away yesterday and sadly I’m missing his funeral because I’m sick. My head is still in a fog from all this. It’s difficult walking through this path again but writing has been my best friend. đź’– A Message To God. Please be gentle or I’ll break. I’m not asking…

A Small Tribute.

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…

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…

Throwback ♥

I began writing this story in Sep. 2018. It was one of the toughest stories I’ve ever written because of the emotions. I thought of the ending before I wrote the whole story, it was so detailed in my mind that it scared me. I’m happy that I didn’t give up and deeply grateful for all…

Still Pushing Through..

September 17th marks two years since my Godfather/Uncle passed away. Everything has changed since then, we’ve been slowly morphing from helpless to hopeful. We’ve been slowly morphing all this anger to acceptance. Slowly and steadily morphing our pain into prayers for those who’ve left us. We’ve been slowly pushing through his absence. Reminiscing on all…

The Leather Jacket.

In 2003, shortly after my late aunt passed away my grandmother handed me a jacket and said, “It’s a gift.” Completely baffled I asked, “But how?” I immediately knew it was from my aunt because she had an identical jacket and always wanted us to match. Before she passed away sometimes we’d match without even…

The Room.

In a place that was truly hers, She knew nobody else belonged there. It was like an un-accessible room, A grim place where nobody could enter. A place where the memories floated,…

I Searched For You

I searched for you in total darkness but you were nowhere to be found. So I gave up and searched for you in other people…I still couldn’t find you. I searched for understanding and I couldn’t find it. I tried everything I could to search for a purpose. I tried everything in my power to…

The Veil

Stuck in a whirlwind of memories and nostalgia she noticed the world continued to move forward without her. Wherever she went, she wore her grief as a veil sometimes it was so thick that she couldn’t see past it. She knew her grief would come in waves and when the veil was transparent, she noticed…
