Blessings Of Pain

Prayers often commence when there seems to be no option left.When most want their dream car,That winning lotto ticket,Or,Their own dosage of attention to feel better about themselves.But,As our tears begin pouring oceans without shallow waters, many tend to drown inside their own resentment… I guess,At times,We forget how much of a blessing it is!To...

Faith

Shame,How faith isn’t talked about enough,Within a space meant to grow the mind of a child.Are they in a classroom,Or,A limbo with statistics painted on the walls about,How likely their failures are?Scarred,Is the heart of a young soul,More often than it is swayed to follow dreams foretold,By the Universe everywhere they go,Whether it’s a favorite...

Appreciation

Gratitude,For this second chance in life God allowed me to receive,Even if my wounds are still bleeding,Profusely.Why?Because,It is all in our minds,The Pain we cry!Over…I just couldn’t see that truth till I began to move forward,And,Love myself enough to,Get sober… Thank you,God!

Freewrite #35: Already Isolated (Pt. 1)

Being distant was already a quality in some of us way before any pandemic.Being home every day,From day to night,Whether dark or light,Is what broken hearts already do!And,They’re as common as,The next lie America knows!You will believe,While you label it “true”… With so many realities unable to be faced,I see why so many wear a...

Tundraz

Talking to other people is harder than it looks.Especially,When you’re devoured by a need to change whether it be,Your current scenery,That same t-shirt you’ve worn for the past 4,5 days,Or,Buying Sensodyne instead of Colgate after running out of toothpaste… “Hi!How are you?” “I’m doing good/great,I woke up today!” Really?Are you really doing good,Or,Just ignoring all...

What Is Home

Ain't it sad,When you can't remember the last hug you've had?I mean,Not really.I can sit here,Be mad,And keep reeling wretched memories over and over again.Or,Come up with another bar,Further entrapping emotions trying to keep me from being sober in this,Labyrinth with walls made of glass.See-through walls in the mind of my inner child,While I search...

Sick and Tired!

Not really angry,Honestly.Just,Ill and exhausted from,Trying to control what I can't control... Like,What Humans do to themselves!Only to point fingers and ignite their own hellish realities into existence while,Bystanders get burned.By each spark searing holes through the surface of their,Rotting hearts... Because,Isn't it so annoying?How we've lived for so long risking death with every step... Continue Reading →

Take This Dance With Me

Alluring are those eyes resting beneath each curl of hair.More like,Coils wrapping my mind around the thought of moving them aside to,Kiss those lips if you dare.Poetry,Is the way you flow with me inside of a world I conjure when I'm blowing trees,Convincing you to go with me,Into a world where I'm sewing these wounds... Continue Reading →

Hollow Knightz

Laying it all out on a page is rough when draft beers aren’t handy anymore.Trying to breathe and be a better person,But,There is barely any oxygen where I lay my head at night,While pondering my true feelings buried underneath the surface,Of my ailing heart.How,I’ve been crying while this world points and laughs at my pain... Continue Reading →

The Kinda Pain That Stickz

Biggest mistake you can ever make is keeping yourself shrouded by others who mar your existence with stigmas they internally placed on themselves.And,I’ve kept myself within that circle of misery for too long as a Bronx boy so used to poverty of all kinds.Whether it’s bucket-loads of mental trauma or an stomach empty of golden...
