  • Comes to still; the end.

    November 4, 2020 by

    The end looks so different from the beginning, But so parallel. In the spring we welcomed green growth, plants, people, life. Summer housed what I would call blooming, the greenest of green hues and laughter. Fall is a transition, harder than we have time to notice In all the hustle and bustle of life. We… Read more

    Colonialism Runs through my veins Paints my skin White It makes me so angry That it took me So long to see I was blind. But I see it now, I’m a moth Drawn to Light. Tired Of the wrong I want to make it Right. My ancestors Didn’t know The difference Between Love And… Read more

    I am a bird Figuratively not Literally In the way that I Both Love and hate To be bound To be caged. I am a bird Figuratively not literally In the way that I I long to stretch my wings To fly but the moment The cage opens I clip my own wings To stay… Read more

  • God damn it is heavy.

    June 4, 2020 by

    I roll the joint between fingers with short, jagged nails. I’ve been biting them again Between Overeating And over thinking About the bottom of The bottle Sitting beside me. Is it survival still? Survival Or distraction? Or are they one in the same If we only focus On reality Do we lose our entire minds?… Read more

  • dreaming pt 1

    April 26, 2020 by

    I will still live.
    My light will carry me
    Through oceans i will swim.
    I’ll laugh in the valley of darkness
    And I’ll dance across the cliffs.

    I am made of skin and bones, Nails, sweat, tears, the ocean, hair, the words out of my mouth every day since I learn how to speak, every word said to me, every book I’ve ever read And the mistakes I could regret But choose to refer to in the future A list of do… Read more

    May 29, 2021 by

    Outside of a Target in Oregon a mother stood with a sign asking for help Her child sitting next to her maybe ten years old. I walked across the street with two crumpled fives in hand Some days I’m not sure how I’m going to make ends meet but I believe That what goes around… Read more
