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.🤞Tiny steps🙌

Some People

Sometimes unexpectedly some people walk into your life and make you forget why you’ve built those protective walls around yourself. Such people are hard to find, but they exist. They help you heal from all the hurt you’ve gone through. They guide your steps even if you feel they’re tiny and insignificant.They also remind you…

Confidence.

You want to express yourself,To save your sanity,But what if people knew what was exactly on your mind? You want that peace to return to your life,But what if they got angry,And stopped talking to you. You want to try something you’ve never tried before,But what if people saw you failing?

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…

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…

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…
