Death’s Kiss

As I lay in bed I cannot ignore the weight of dread for the months ahead I practice being in the moment instead Yet… it will not get out of my head Spring is a time of life For me, it is strife I question if I’d be better off dead “Depression” The doctor has… Continue reading Death’s Kiss

Safe Space

She often contemplates Of a distant life One without strife Curious of where she hide When all is chaotic inside She fears her safe space mimicks pandora’s box It lies hidden beneath her surface Unlike a treasure chest Not meant to be discovered For this space holds secrets Most of which permeate And she, unaware… Continue reading Safe Space

Societal Genocide

A society screaming for acceptance Sits judging the alcoholic mom Religious people condemn others to hell As Priests rape innocent, God-fearing boys Promoting originality and authenticity Forgetting to disclose an addiction to prescription pain pills Chanting for equal rights Gripping your purse if a black man is in sight Turning your back And closing our… Continue reading Societal Genocide
