A Cover and It’s Pages

A Cover and It’s Pages

They say don’t judge a bookBy its cover. But without it,How do we know whose Story it is? Our cover is our shield,And without it.We are just pages,Delicate —and weak. Preserve your cover, One tear and you’re fragile.  An author gets to createWhat their cover looks like. Let those who are invested,Open your book.Don’t explain it,No one likes a spoiled [...]

Guilty

When you ask,I say I’m okay.If I show anything less, You cast your fears onto meYour worries about me.  A mirror will never trust me, Why? Because it sees me everyday. If it could speak, It would question why, Every time I go to it,I Fix my hairBrush my teeth,And smile. The night before,It heard me [...]

Sweet Like Candy

Sweet Like Candy

You came into my heart,Filled it with love,Joy and happiness.My heart became so full,Until there was no space Left for pain.That was until you ran awayWith it.Leaving me empty and starved.

New Year. New Me?

How many times have you said that?Each year you want to change.Look outside at the trees,You see their leaves?Gone.Now look at the grassDo you see flowers?Gone.

Worry met disappointment,And introduced me to patience.The wait was long butI checked my heart,It was still beating. I woke up,Looked outside,Everything looked the sameBut I can change that.

Expect the unexpected

Expect the unexpected

Hey Siri,What’s the weather forecast for today?—It’s currently cloudy with a chance of rain. Again?It’s been weeks! —Look at the squirrels and birds outside.If their tree was to be cut down,Their work, preparations,And home would be gone forever. They might cry.But do you think they sit aroundAnd do nothing?They move on,And find another tree,Knowing their [...]

Happily Ever After

In a world where there’s hate,Sadness, anger, jealousy and struggle.I wonder what the world would be like,If everyone got what they wanted.What would happen if every time we wished for something,It came true.  Would the things that helpedBuild our character still exist?It wouldn’t be peace.It would be a world filled with Concealed fears masked by Joy.
