Reflection

I’ve been reflecting a lot this week. I’ve been looking back on all the mistakes I’ve made and people I’ve met. It’s left me in a confused state of mind. Not many people know that that’s how I’ve been feeling. I’ve been feeling sad and empty. It’s quite complicated to describe really. It’s been thisContinue reading “Reflection”

To The Workaholics

There are few moments in my days where I feel at total peace. And as of late I’ve been needing them more and more. It’s hard to describe what I’m feeling. Life is roller coaster and while the high’s are great it’s the lows that I can get trapped in. I think we all asContinue reading “To The Workaholics”

Pisces

I don’t know how to express it The attraction I feel from the moon The pull she has over me The way her light washes over me Calming me I feel at peace in her presence   I don’t know how to express it The attraction I feel from water The pull she has overContinue reading “Pisces”

Fear & Courage

She stops me in my tracks. My blood freezes and my heart stops. I lose control over my body and fear takes over my nervous system. My bones are paralyzed, my dreams stay locked in my head and opportunities fade away. Her name is fear and she is my ying. She whispers in my earContinue reading “Fear & Courage”

Period.

So whose idea was it to give females periods? Because let me take a second to complain about Eve. SO you’re gonna tell me that because Eve ate a dam apple the WHOLE ENTIRE female gender has to be punished?! YOU’RE telling me GOD decided to punish us ALL because of HER mistake?! I’m sorryContinue reading “Period.”

Limbo

I have seen to find myself in limbo…again I always seem to trail back to this corner of my mind. A small cave where I’m lost. Stuck. Confused. I sit here and ponder. Who am I? What do I do next? Should I? Should I not? The walls are filled with questions and visions. SoContinue reading “Limbo”

Creative Writing vs Journalism

Over a year ago I had to write a short paper on Journalism v. Creative Writing. I just about died at the thought of writing it. Here we have a paper where I have to write about my two worlds colliding. I loved creative writing ever since elementary school. But the amount of narrative essaysContinue reading “Creative Writing vs Journalism”

The Rise of Youth

When my mother was 12 years old she had to stop going to school. She had learned the basics of reading, writing and math more or less. But she had to stop her education because she had to help her family work on the farm. You heard me, a farm. She grew up in aContinue reading “The Rise of Youth”

Two Sides

I am 2 out of 1. I have two sides. One always hides.   1 ethnicity. 2 nationalities. Separated by a giant sea.   A foreigner in one. A misfit in the other. Where are my sisters and brothers?   My tongue is tied in confusion. Afraid to speak and make a mistake. I stayContinue reading “Two Sides”

Work to Live

My whole life I’ve been taught to get an education. That what matters is that I finish with my diploma and luckily in the area of what makes me happy. And while others for the most part are taught something similar it’s not easy. College is expensive. Books cost and arm and leg each semester.Continue reading “Work to Live”
