    Future

    Apparently we are the future Because it was decided by mother nature It is a responsibility we did not ask for But that choice is far gone. We are supposed to develop and protect our nation For the many to come generations But did they prepare it for us? So that we have an example of such I think I’ve lamented enough But these are just but words So do your best And the rest will hopefully be done by fate Though we definitely are The change we so wish we had So do your part And I’ll do mine After all we can only do so much This post…

    Who are you?

    Who are you? Are you the body they so often desire? Or that beauty they admire? Are you the intellect they can’t measure up to? Or the witty mouth they try to? What truly describes you? What about you is pure and true? Is it who you say and think you are? Or who people see you as? I don’t think there is an exhaustive definition But definitely different versions Do we really need one though? If yes what for? If no why not? You are defined by what you were Barely what you are And implicitly by what you can be Do not seek definitions But aspire to be…

    Perfect Stranger

    When I started writing it was mostly poetry; the tragedy of love I dare say and the loneliness unrequited love brings. It was writing from a point of brokenness (aren’t we all) my, salvation for the girl behind the blinking cursor. Not for the audience. Maybe not for the 12 people who read my work, but for my freedom. For understanding of emotions in a teenagers brain. Later on I started getting an audience and I needed to not ‘seem hurt’ in all my posts. That’s what my readers said. It was bad for business or in this case for a start up blog. I needed to get more content.…

    Unlove

    It’s easy to fall in love, To let someone you’ve always wanted in, To be a part of something, It only takes a yes, A no if you don’t feel it right. But no one tells you how to unlove, How to debrief when it doesn’t work, Love is meant to be forever right? But we broke up, We parted ways. No one told us we’d have to forget, All the places we went out on dates, All the foods we tried out, All the dreams we built together, The passion, the hope, the dreams. We’ll go to friends maybe, Who would take us out to forget about each other,…

    Messes

    Nature and civilisation, never a match The earth cannot love another because the road broke him, But the road, She already loves another, the cars that come her way, she dies and lives for them, Now the sky is dying in hope of loving the trees of the earth, bursting with love in her clouds, But the trees of the earth cannot come to love again, not after what she did to him, not after the brokenness and heartache, But the sky offers him love, love that grows stronger by the day, Because she believes he loves her, With every word unsaid, with beauty and harmony such as this. 🐾glynismaina

    Words escape me as i try not to be cliche, A struggle I simple do not see how it can be fixed, Who am I kidding, I know how to fix it, maybe i’m just lazy, Lazy or scared? If I was born an eagle instead of a mortal man  I wouldn’t be surprised if I was the last to fly, Why, Fear,  to exit a cocoon that has sheltered me all my life, Someone once lied to me to use fear as a driving force, See where that got me? Nowhere, Stuck, And now my brain is bleeding for more than the basic I am giving, But how, How…

    I hate funerals, I didn’t know this until this year when there have been so many deaths, I fail to comprehend how there seem to be more funeral invites than weddings this year, I’ve lost track of how many people have lost someone this year, The mourning is to much and sometimes we wonder, where is our comforter? Why does He seem so close yet so far? I never did know what it felt like to lose someone, The fear of letting go, The torture from the endless videos and pictures on slideshow in your head, The feeling of  failure from not saving our loved ones from the jaws of…

    Desperation.

    Hi guys, sorry I have been slaking, compliancy is truly the enemy of consistency. But I have no right to give excuses….. I wrote on pain and feeling naked in the last two posts if you haven’t read them please check them out. I hope you love this piece, if you do hit like and comment down below. She thought of it every day, what if she jumped? She could end the misery that her heart clung onto, she could free her soul void of emotion, all the the conflicting emotions that made her head wooz. But she was never quite ready to forget, she wanted to hold on to…

    Naked

    How do you say this is me, This is my heart, My soul, I’d like to get naked, Not having to hide, Not having to pretend, No need to suck in the extra stomach, No need to hide emotion, But how do you get naked? The world is already too judgy, Society will tell you to be you, Then it will need you to do it it’s way, If I could pour out my soul, Without holding back, You would deny that you knew me, Because my soul is reigned by darkness, My bones are engulfed in pain, My skin is deficient of hope, I want to scream and let…

    Rain

    Dear mother, I want to be as mighty as the thunder, I want to be heard, to be feared, Just like the hurricanes, But in the world of whirlwinds, I am weak, deficient and needy. Why am I a weakling, Why am I sucked backed to the clouds before I reach the ground, Why can’t I be like my brother the El Nino, Why can’t I also be in the history books? Mother, I am not even seen as your son, Nor am I seen as your daughter, I have no identity, Neither a front nor a convection, Then who am I… what am I? Dear showers, You are my…
