how? attitude

I wrestled with the decision to move ahead. There wasn't an easy way, really. I could stand back and stay where I was. To know what to expect and to have to live with it. Or I could take on a new adventure. To start on a whole new path right from the beginning. It's [...]



There is this sense of beauty when one can become exposed to themselves and others. It's baring one's identity, soul,..whatever it is and owning it to the greatest capacity. As tender and sweet and energizing our hearts can be, it can easily be disguised as something else. Our wounds grow deeper without the care and [...]

strength in me

There was only so much I could've taken, The tapestries of my heart strings untangled. My willful ignorance could not go on any longer. Spoken in dual messages inside and out, It took all the strength in me to divide the two. To keep both sides separated, gated and locked. One was poison, the other [...]

i am with you

For several days I've thought of how to express this sentiment to you. I could only come up with this... I am with you. I feel the same way sometimes. I am positive we all do. It's hard to truly feel secure with where we are in life. The world changes all the time; moment [...]

broken things

How quickly things seem to break down, Because we don't pay attention. Soon five years go by and nothing changes, The same tune chimes at the same time. And then the motor stops running smooth, The dishwasher door stops locking And the pristine white walls become off. Each has their own timings of things. Everything [...]

seasons renewal

spring is soon upon us. lingering sweeps of humidity. the rain has fallen everywhere. cursed are the confused birds. flying around, following the crumbs. winter's been long. sweetness awaits our arrival when the sun becomes regular. however, the darkness is near for now, keep your soul warm rays of light will soon rise again.

don’t go

There's this sense of protection we get when someone validates what we do and  how we act. It's this shield of armor from outsiders that make claims against our own values and existence. It's human desire to be accepted and wanted. We all make decisions on how we use our time and when others value [...]

change in perspective

I woke up early. Not by choice, but because my body's been conditioned to. It knows there's always a task waiting for me. Long before my eyes can close for rest, there are unfinished projects scattered over the floor. A depiction of my life. Like feng shui does for the mind. I drove over to [...]

i’m ready

my heart carved out a piece of itself. it disappeared into an abyss unseen, unheard until this very moment. it started to crack out of its own shell. a hard hat of protection from raining bullets and grenades ready to explode. the hollowness soul began to yearn the kind of light it had for so [...]

feeling home

Years ago, I visited this no-kill cat shelter and saw this beautiful cat. S/he looked so warm and happy; weren't scared of us or anything at all. I think they felt at home. Look at those cute paws! It's so automatic as a child to feel at home. Well, speaking from my perspective, it was. [...]
