An inch.

fading
fading

 

I can feel you fading,

leaving,

distancing,

further & further away.

 

So I hold you,

grab onto you,

reach out for you,

try to keep you near.

 

But the truth is,

you’re still here,

you’ve always been here,

you never even moved,

an inch.

The absurdity of racism

In 1619, when white people brought black people to America, in shackles and chains, against their will, we beat them, whipped them, put them through extreme working conditions, divided them from their families, sold them, treated them like animals.

After the American Civil War, in 1865, when slavery was abolished, we segregated them, marginalized them, kept them from voting, kept them from receiving proper education, kept them in different schools, kept them in the back of the bus.

After the civil rights movement, in 1968, we forced them to stay in ghettos, made them struggle for fair education, gave them less opportunities, discriminated against them, forced them to turn to criminal acts, drug-dealing, violence, because quite frankly, they had no other choice. Quite frankly, that was the only option they had.

And then, WE shoot then.

And then, WE’RE the racists.

Dreams…

 

dream

Dreams…

Are a risk.

You don’t know

if when they come true

they will be

what you imagined them to be

or not…

 

What really matters…

is now.

Now,

is what you’re experiencing now

making you happy?

 

Because maybe now

you’re living a dream

you may have dreamed before

and just don’t know it…

I’ve seen it.

I’m on the other side.

I’m with them,

the one’s who waited for me.

I’m doing

all the things

I was destined to do.

They aren’t far away anymore.

Now,

I don’t need a telescope.

i want to start my life already.

i want to start my life already.

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck?

Like you just want time to go by

get things over

so you can finally begin living

the life you’ve always dreamed of?

Distract myself.

4 (2)

I wake up in the morning

and I sit down to meditate.

 

The first thought that comes to mind is :

‘I can’t take this anymore.’

 

So I get up

do things

distract myself.

Am I worthy?

worthy1

Am I worthy?

Am I worth your time?

Am I interesting?

Am I worth the try?

 

Or am I just broken?

Am I just a mess?

Am I just a sad girl

that does nothing but obsess?

 

They obviously don’t know.

They obviously can’t see.

the mess I hide inside.

It ‘s too much to believe.

 

So I have to pretend.

I have to deceive.

Before the secret comes out.

And everyone decides to leave.

Time.

clock

Time.

 

I fear it.

I struggle with it.

I want to make it go away.

 

I fill it

like a drawer

with activities

to delay it’s coming.

 

But  it

crawls up on me.

It eats me alive.

It chews on my skin.

It devours my insides.

 

But now

I must face it

Face my biggest fear.

Tackle it, to realize

that it’s not a curse

 

but a gift.

House of glass.

wineglass2

My house

is made of glass.

 

With each vibration,

the entire foundation

is at risk

of falling down.
