I Need Representation Too

I had an epiphany last Sunday. If you hadn’t read the title I had a realization about how little of who I am is represented. Everyone talks about representation for Asians, Latinos and Blacks. I never really knew I needed it too. I didn’t think my culture mattered. That was until I watched a randomContinue reading “I Need Representation Too”

Influence

I’ve typed the same line five times unsure of how to begin. A few weeks ago I posted on Instagram asking what should I write about. A friend of mine had mentioned talking about culture and how it influences you. Now please don’t take any offense to anything that’s about to be said this isContinue reading “Influence”

You are Pretty

The craziest thing happen a few weeks ago. I was getting ready for my show, going full glam drama queen when I noticed one of my cast mates staring at me. I met her eyes and smiled. She immediately apologized and said, “you’re just so pretty and so amazing at makeup.” For a second IContinue reading “You are Pretty”

Happiness

Happiness comes in all shapes and forms It’s something we’re all tirelessly searching for. We search for it so much we blind ourselves to how it even looks. We think that to find happiness we need a special map to uncover its complexity when in fact it’s quite simple. Most people think you can onlyContinue reading “Happiness”

Breathe

Breathe. The smell of roasted beans consumes her sense of smell. Her body shivers slightly by the breeze of the A/C as she walks in. The door chimes and she is greeted by warm faces.

I’m Back and Better Than Ever

Well I got incredibly sick again and on top of that my rehearsal schedule was getting more intense. Over the past two weekends I’ve been performing in myContinue reading “I’m Back and Better Than Ever”

Tales of False Glory P.1

A tide is coming It calls to me Rushing waters I did not forsee   Voices chant an earthly call Winds are strong Ground is breaking I don’t belong   Fire below boils high The air is scorched Spilling to the sky I did not hide   Was not my choice But theirs alone TheContinue reading “Tales of False Glory P.1”

All That’s Left

Mother, mother Relinquish me From the fear I know to be His sin your savior Has set you free   The sun has set The moon draws close In my heart I’ve always known Be wary of those with eyes like snakes They prey on those who easily quake The moon falls and the sunContinue reading “All That’s Left”

We Are Artists.

We think differently. We feel differently. We act differently. We are artists. We strive for the unattainable. We take the road less traveled on. We challenge the impossible. We are artists. We fight harder. We dream harder. We love harder. We are artists. We break easily. We cry easily. We get angry easily. We areContinue reading “We Are Artists.”
