Her name is unknown but her story is better forgotten.
A life of untold tragedy.
Scars were mistaken as attention seeking.
The truth later is unfolded to reveal all she had cried out silently for.
The drunk father who frequently... (more »)
A glowing screen, a rotting mind
Leaving all signs of intelligence behind
More likes, more followers, that's all that matters
what would happen if that screen shattered?
If that's all in your brain, would it shatter too?

Choices are always so hard to make,
For no matter how small, you can't erase a mistake
You can walk miles forward, but not one step back

Sing me a song
About how you crossed the sea
Or how the trip was long
To reach the land of the free.

so that now,
I stand in the house of a person
who despite my age,... (more »)
Calmness is a white lily, in the middle of nowhere, letting its odor inside my nose,
Calmness is the sweetness of honey slowly spreading upon my tongue,
Calmness is resting my head upon the aging, winter sun,
Calmness is a sea, lost in the... (more »)
From Ghana to Shanghai
We watch you every hour.
Sentry’s atop buildings,
Watchers in the trees.
We know more about you,
Then you do about yourself.
We watch every pixel intently,
Studying how you take a breath.
We count... (more »)
Bam! Was all I heard when the bus stopped at the traffic light. I thought it was the other bus behind us that had possibly hit us. But my thoughts were proven wrong as the children on the bus jumped up in joy, Forcefully opening the... (more »)
A white lily, full of comfort and innocence,
In the middle of nowhere, in the middle of rain,
Carefully lets its odor inside my nose,
As its enchanting smell fills my lungs,
Other white lilies slowly arose,
Arisen are they, who rise... (more »)
Full of tranquility,
Full of peace,
Yet all that passion,
Started to decrease,

Took this beauty,
Away from my hands,
Fire, fire, everywhere,
I can only see the dark, human plans... (more »)
