#Goals

Is there room for me at the table? I see them laugh and wonder if they know about my secret. Only I can hear the whispering. It tells me I should move on, Past the hidden conversations, manipulative snickering, and intolerable exclusion. The bell rings. I am meant for something more. Really though, aren’t we all?   That was then, This is now.   People ask… “What do you do?” My thought hidden deep behind hazel eyes… “Well… I eat chocolate every night, sing in the shower, and watch too much Netflix” Instead, it seems the expectation of an answer meets the qualification of knowing… I am meant to bring glowing life into the world, Or to find power in the jungles of concrete towers.   So I pick my poison with pride, With the knowledge we all have a choice, And  in this very moment I choose neither. I am content discovering who I am in the present. Love on my lips. Paint seeping on canvas. Words touching keys. Don’t you see? We are all meant to be …

Starlight in the New Year

“You can be clumsy yet clever. You can be classy yet poor. It’s not tearing a leaf off a calendar which will make you a better or a worse man but the attitude that you have from dusk till dawn every day.” – Indeewara Jayawardane Change: A prevalent instant that has created a different path consistently throughout my life. This change has not always been my will but often the will of faith’s hand. As I gaze back at the past years remembering the 9 schools I have attended and the 4 times I have moved, The New Year approaches like sunbeams tasting growing evergreens. As many believe, it is a time for new beginnings. How can we not have faith in this fresh start, but how can we not also view every day waking up as a beginning to seize? Just as an Evergreen, our leaves remain in place growing with the minutes, hours, and days. As long as our hearts are nourished, goals are set, and mind exercised in strength, new beams of light …

Fallen Twigs

On the floor, Palms facing up, Eyes open, About to soar, One leg moves. Arms rise, Feathers caress skin, And then God proves, There is more, Because she knows how to roar. With faith, Her wings flutter. Yet, she defied life. Left everything behind. Melting polaroids, Cannibalized in memory. They were together, Together in treachery. There was turmoil, In her saddened soul. Tears caught by his hand, Only to shatter into sand. Life caused destruction, Abduction. Quiet misery. Darts through the heart. Underneath fallen twigs, She searched uncontrollably, To find the girl they remembered, Before. Before the war. But in the quest, With each touch, More crumbling. She was shaken. Now though, it is time. Time to be taken, To be a warrior in the sky. Why? Sometimes we may not know how to help our closest friends or even the girl/boy next door but lets make sure every day to say hello, smile, and give those who need some loVe a hug. We never know what may be going on in the depths of another’s …

To Be Someone

Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it. ~ Julia Child I had little bambam feet, small hands, and a fragmented mind filled with creativity. In time, I knew I’d grow to be someone. Still I am discovering who this someone is… How do I see myself, How do people see me, and who do I really want to be? How can I be someone who makes an impact? Someone who travels by unicorn, fights next to dragons, and prays with an angel there to always listen? Really though, are you not swimming in curiosity? Are these not questions we ALL ask ourselves? (Okay, maybe not the dragon and unicorn part, but you have to admit it is the fiercest of dreams!)
