IS IT JUST LIKE AN ADOLESCENT PHASE?

She felt exhausted. Worthless. Ashamed. She kept thinking about death and taking her own life. The sadness she was feeling made it difficult for her to function.

ON ATTEMPTING TO WRITE POEMS AND SHARING ART

I did not grow up reading poems for fun and I was not really interested in poetry.

Natural Hair, Spoken Word Poetry

… MESSY HAIR

do not fret my child even when your hair shrinks. Under the blue sky on a distant beach, gracefully pull out the loose braid, as it can no longer make it out alone.

… THAT GIRL

I stared at the girl standing before me, dressed in black jeans and a brown vest top. Her oversized coat wrapped around her slim body her short hair stood unkempt She rolls her eyes trying to fluff it out, but failed miserably She looked nervous.

Hot cup of coffee to warm my hands as I watched him from my tiny bedroom window.
