Poem: Let It All Go

Each day greets you with a wake-up call. Your eyes open and you go through the¬†normal tasks of the day. As you proceed through the normal, the past lurks. It catches you in a second and freezes you in the past. You sat frozen while the memories take over. You’re held, hostage in the past. […]

They come and they go. The memories of yesterday. They sometimes fill your mind with joy and happiness and other times with sorrow and regret.

Poem: To Love With No Love in Return

To love someone who does not love you is a painful and life-changing experience. You gave your all to a person who took you for granted and brushed you away.

Poem: The Scar

Life presents up with choices. Choices of love. Choices of friends. Choices of living. I made a choice to love a man, who did not love me. Instead, he hurt me. The pain in my mind will forever be. He left my with a scar, which is visible physically and mentally. Every time I am […]

Poem: It Hurts

Sometimes the pain never goes away. It creeps up on you like you are its prey. It brings you down when you are all alone. It tries its best to make you its home. It makes you cry deep inside. It exposes feelings so deep you tried to hide. Memories of hurt still felt and […]

Poem: I Feel You

When there is a crack in your voice, a look of distress on your face, abruptness in your talk, slowness in your walk, I feel you. I feel things are not going right in your life. I feel the pain. I feel the sadness. I feel the hesitation to respond. I feel the desire to […]

Poem: With This Breath I Do Take

With this breath, I do take full control of my life. I must not let the pain of the past overshadow my future. I promise to forgive my enemies and forgive myself for my transgressions. For every day I wake, I promise the Lord I will make it great. I will no longer allow myself […]
