who i am is not in the definition of ur beliefs
i have every right to keep my head held high and regonize
my beauty both mentally and physically..
you dont define me
you've never been webster and you will never be god.
i am a complex being and
my true beauty lies in my state of mind.
physically, i can be all that
but i want ur eyes to see my mind,
your ears to hear my thoughts
and regonize my knowledge
i am poetry...
feel the words that slips off my lips
the emotion that drips off my ink
embrace the aura in every syllable that is written.
Now watch me bring my emotions into your imagination.
it is who i am, i am poetry.


Still, we wait

muting our movements





stalling our existence



installing rules of safety
tickling our muscles
implicating boldness, we stay,


Still.



Waiting for our signal




Red light




green light





yellow light





neon lights



We inch our existence





forward.

Shifting our movements




red light




yellow light




green light




traffic lights

it controls us,

like remote
we are the robots

red light stop.

yellow light slow…..
green light go!
traffic light is in control.
