Hesitation

There are secrets you gotta keep, to prevent your world from turning upside down. You do that to keep on living, hoping for a better day after a guileless past. Nonetheless, there are secrets you’d like to share, so your world falls apart, so you can move on. That way, maybe, you’ll have hope in…

It’s not okay

How to do that, Lifting one’s mood, Getting hyped up, Believing in oneself, And, in our own skin, feeling just right? I lost it. I faked it. I sought it. But over and over again I keep returning to that same spot, In a whole of mistrust, uncertainty, and a disrupted heart. A breath in,…

Skeptical

Hanging on words, Over thinking the facts, Doubting the thoughts And blaming oneself Because being skeptical isn’t the norm. How maddening your days become, When you try to distinguish the truth from the lies, When you wonder what’s really wrong and what’s right, When you start questioning the whole world and your own life, When…

Misogyny

The sad part of the misogyny embedded in our culture isn’t the sexism of men, but the women who side with them, the women who pride themselves of upholding the old myths to the detriment of their own rights. “Boys will be boys”, but women should act like “good little girls”. Only when we notice […]

Split

I’ve taking pictures, Of the latest events that affected my future. What they display are inconsistent with what I remember. Well, I’ve always felt split. What I see, What I show, What I think, And how I look Are contradicted. Now even the memories want to rebel and show things different than how they existed….

It’s that time again

In dreams, I’ve never thought, To be realistic is how I was bread and formed. Now, I’m having more of those that I’m scared and lost. In the verge of breakdown sometimes, Then in a state of depression or void. Most of the times I’m fighting myself to do my best. Despite that, I’m not…

Women to Mothers

I’ve grown up with three sisters. We’ve grown to be smart and ambitious. My mother  made sure that we dream even bigger. We’ve grown older. We’ve become wiser and bolder. We’ve planned to become prouder. Then, they shared their lives with others, and they brought angels to our covert, although it’s debatable if they’re from…

Growing Thorns

A flower, that what it was. When I saw it I supposed, it was too pretty to hold. Mistaken I thought, it will always be sought, who would be willing to leave it alone? When I got close I was told, it was left to its own, fearing its thorns.

Thoughtless Words

On the news today, there was an article about our mules. It said by the neighbors they’re being used. Under the title, there was a picture of women surviving the system that has being abused. The thoughtless fool, whose job is to make out the right from the wrong, whose job is to side with…

Forged Sanctuary

I received a mail under the name of a dreadful box shaped. It said “Chances have being given. It’s time to make your decision. ” It sounded like a blessing, but that also was a bind. I hated the box and made it the foe of my lifetime. As it has taken my pen and…

Defect

Laying last night, I was wondering why about romance I can’t write. Although, I am in love, and that man is one of a kind. I was wondering if I should try. So I told my mom that I kind of write. She told me,it was my pastime as a child. She told me, I…

Snow White

They said he is sorry. What’s more, do you wish for him to be? They said he’s hurting as well. That he knows he’s done wrong and that’s enough of a torment to hold on. I wish I’d said, what if he’s sorry and in pain from his own wrongs? He’s the one who causes them. Why…
