You matter. Your actions affect, not only your life, but others, as well. We don't live in a world in which we live in our own bubbles and have our own reactions and results. There's always a domino effect. Know this. Embrace this. If you are an adult, you are a role model for those [...]

There is this sense of wanting to be needed. To be grounded by the attachments and achievement we make in our lives. To not wither away like a fallen leaf flying around in the wind as it lands on the ground only to be brushed up again to another place. There's comfort to feeling fulfilled. [...]

snapshot and story, 2/3/18

I remember the day I took this. Years ago, I decided to play around with my dad's "new" camera. He probably bought it a bit ago, but I didn't really care for it until then. Picked it up and decided to just shoot things. Adjusting the different settings not knowing really what it'll do. These [...]

Stability treads on thin lines of balanced equations. They don't align always and they are rarely ever perfect, but it is possible. There is stillness in the chaos of our paths. Even among the rush of the mornings and the late-night thoughts of future goals or fears we are given streams of minutes in which [...]

Reasons why things don't work out usually come from some kind of boundary; usually ones we can't control or ones we choose not to. A lot of things in our lives are out of our hands, but there are many that are. To understand our powers, our abilities and our hearts, there's so much more [...]

It isn't until we go through the process of complete openness, unveiled, uncensored, unfiltered life do we ever truly change for good. It is where we meet our insecurities and stop protecting our fears. Seeing our flaws and judgements and allowing them to live along with the glowing qualities we want to shine and admire. [...]

stream of consciousness or reality?

we surrendered our weapons, poured our hearts into rivers, sacrificed our words for visions. so it could flow forever across lands. unity was built by wooden pallets, left by the side of abandoned buildings. seen, but ignored, unwanted. no longer does this exist. with unity, we created bridges walked across them with our souls trust [...]

note: c (see) shadow puppetry

musical notes flutter across see-through paper. their movements offbeat like magic shadow puppetry dance in wonder about morning clouds. drift and sway, always. never knowing if they're heard. never knowing if they're seen.   ------- I found a video that conveys this sentiment in this poem. I wrote the poem first and then found the [...]

one-bedroom living

Feet upstairs running, Like a loud clap of thunder, Roaring messages downwards As I gather all my notes. Habitats caved inward, Cabin fever is alive. Stringing lights for comfort. Lemon bars for good times. Comfy leg stools, Entangled between space Reserved for sleeping cats Purring with their scratchy cheeks. what I imagine living in the [...]

ignite your bones

I'm not sure what compelled me to buy their CD. I liked their music, but wasn't a "fan" necessarily. When I got home, I placed the circular magic disc and let it play. And this was one of their songs that really caught me. I remember thinking that the lead singer's voice was really authentic. [...]

quiet snow days

Alone. Surrendering underneath the rising sun. Hot. The heat radiates onto the roofs of snowy abyss, melting down creating icicles on the edges of shingles. I stand before the open vast blanket of beautiful, untouched snow. After multiple repetitions of shoveling the millions of snowflakes from under, over and then walking piles across, I took [...]
