An Ocean Unchained (Expectations)

A promise is a promise, the notion’s unchanged The motive of motion is an ocean unchained Expectations of life is a supposition I’ve blamed For fate is a design that is forever unexplained Is my potential the key or is life as random as chance? Does hope keep me moving or is it an illusionContinue reading “An Ocean Unchained (Expectations)”

Slow Down.

She told me to slow down. The best advice I may never take. My life is a race with no debate of who’s in place. I stare my future in the face as I’m running from my disgrace. But my heart is beating hard and I’m struggling to keep the pace. Too many plates inContinue reading “Slow Down.”

Who’s my hero?

I sit my apartment on Halloween night; actively ignoring my school work and have “My Hero Academia” on pause. I’m looking at the ceiling, thinking about my life, my recent therapy session, and my current situations. I’m just thinking, ” I aim to be so many peoples’ hero. But who is my hero?” Is itContinue reading “Who’s my hero?”

The Heart

Staring through the views of green, I’m seeing nothing but blurry scenes of trees and I’m thinking like what you mean? Losing your mind over this stuff you cant control, Draining you of your soul, keep your eyes on the road. Don’t look at what they’re doing, they ain’t you, You know what can do.Continue reading “The Heart”

What is my place of peace?

For so long, I’ve tried to find my comfort place in this world.

All of these places are still near andContinue reading “What is my place of peace?”

No Lights

Sun dimming down, it’s my only source of light. Only the flame of the candle can reach my sight. No sleeping tonight, because stress has taken a toll. No air, no heat, and no energy in my home. Sixteen, in my room, listening to my mother cry, And I have no control, because I’m tooContinue reading “No Lights”

Long Way From Home

I’m working on my future, because I’m tired of eating noodles. I could have been a shooter, but my mother kept me neutral. I could have dealt with dope, but the struggle gave me hope. Music let me cope with the troubles of being broke. Sitting in the dark praying to God for just aContinue reading “Long Way From Home”

If the Mountains Weren’t Too High

If the mountains weren’t too high, would I climb for you? If the valleys weren’t too low, would I slide for you? If the rivers weren’t too wide, would I swim for you? A wealth of knowledge within your mind, a wealth of ambition and strength in your soul, and wealth of beauty in myContinue reading “If the Mountains Weren’t Too High”

Diagnosis

Diagnosis…they’re handing it out to me like bills. Major Depression. Social Anxiety. Obesity. Diabetes. Sleep Apnea. Insomnia. Carpal Tunnel. Bell’s Palsy as a teen. How am I even alive? How am I still striving? This isn’t even mentioning past poverty, discrimination, loneliness, self-confidence, and other things that effect the diagnosis’s above, but are separate issuesContinue reading “Diagnosis”
