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.


AN AIRPORT,
I HEAR EVERY SOUND
WAFTING SERIES OF SMELLS.
BODIES GREETING MY SHOULDERS WITH A BUMP
TIPPING TOES OVER MY SHOES
INHALING MY SCENT
VIEWING MY PRESENCE
ALL THIS WHILE I STAND STILL
I STAND ALONE.
I KNOW THEY ARE THERE
I HEAR CONVERSATIONS RISING AND FALLING
LUGGAGES DRAGGING THEIR FEET
AS IF PROTESTING FOR THEIR OWNERS TO LEAVE THEM BE
"LATE FLIGHT. DELAYED FLIGHT. THIS FLIGHT IS LEAVING NOW"
THE ANNOUNCER WOULD SAY
ALL THE WHILE I STAND STILL
I STAND ALONE
I HEAR MY HEART BEATING SILENTLY
THE SILENCE IN MY HEAD IS POUNDING
LONELY HAS TAKEN OVER MY BODY
LIKE A STATUE, I BECOME UNMOVEABLE
I AM NOT ME, I AM LONELY
MY BODY IS A SHELL
SHE BREATHES HER VENOM THROUGH ME
I HAVE NO CONTROL SO I STAND ALONE
MIND AS A VASLE
SHE BLOCKS ANY INTERACTION
THE SILENCE ROAM MY HEAD LIKE A BAD AURA
LIPS UNMOVEABLE
VOICE INAUDIBLE
I AM THE DAUGHTER OF ALONE
SHE RAISED ME WITH FEAR
DICTATING MY EVERY MOVEMENT
BANISHING ME WITH SILENCE
I STAND IN A CROWD I STAND STILL
ALLOWING LONELY TO HOLD MY HANDS
STAND ALONE.
