It’s just not fair to hold others accountable for my bad choices.
It’s not fair to suppress those
who have much gentler voices.

Finally found someone

everyone has someone to be their life companion
And that's also what I experienced
when I have no choice in my life ... because of the situation at that time that demanded me to immediately end my loneliness ... I resignedly go through all the obstacles and choices that were in front of me at that time ...
years passed ... and I came back to find someone who is meaningful in my life ... someone who accepts me for who I am ... someone who can really "see me" as I am as a person ... without demanding me to change into someone else who is not me ...
And when I have it ... I won't let it go ... because I've found someone I love

The daily grind can take a toll on the soul.
That much heavy will eventually weigh you down.
Pause.
Breathe.
Focus.
The world can wait.
It is important that you don’t forget who is in control.

Albuquerque, United States

Your eyes only skim
The surface
Blissfully unaware of what
Simmers below.

Because I
Can smile
Because I
Can laugh
Because I
Make jokes
Because I
“Look like I’m
Doing better!”

Your eyes see
My show
Your eyes see
My false face
Your eyes see
What I want

I’m suppressing
The tears
I’m burying
The hurt
I’m hiding
My brokenness.

I’m afraid.  

What if you
Don’t stick around
Because
What if I
Am not okay
        ?

'I Love You So...' by Fọlábòmí Àmọ̀ó

The wind is blowing,
Gently, on this cool night.
As we overlook the city,
Shinning bright, with lights.

The roof is empty.
Silent.
Nothing but our silhouettes,
Moving, in the darkness.

You come close,
Standing on a tiptoe.
I look into your eyes.
And then I know,
Deep in my heart,
How much, I love you so.

                        WORRY 101

You see, that's the thing about Worry, my love,
It's addictive.
You find yourself tuning into it,
The moment you are alone.
Like an unending novel you can't wait to complete.

From one scenario to the other,
Your mind unwinds down the familiar spiral.
There's always another worry to worry about.
There's always more string than pearls.

You see, that's the thing about Worry, my love,
It's infinite.

It doesn't require a rooftop balcony,
Or a designated area.
Public Worrying isn't an offence, not yet.
There's nothing to purchase,
Nothing to deal.

You see, that's the thing about Worry, my love,
It's convenient.

So I could go on and on ...

Existing is intense,
An inevitable pressure,
That will either turn you into diamonds,
Or crush you into infinite pieces

I can also be a cold hearted bitch and pretend like if nothing you did hurt Me.
I can stand straight and let anyone tell me whatever they want about me and think about Me and walk out the door like the Queen I am!
I was raised by Kings and
Kings don't cry
Kings don't lose there cool,
Kings are fearless,
Kings are strong,
Kings talk smart,
Kings can fight,
Kings can defeat you with one look,
Kings don't lose!

I want to help but I have
nothing left to give.
How do you tell this to
one who needs you to live?

Like a swarm of piranhas
Meandering memories
Of mine viciously ripping
Apart this heart to shreds, bits
Leaving only enough for
The next beast to feed off of
But little does the beast know
It now craves the taste of a
Heartless soul, but this time my
Skin is impenetrable

Thousands arrows he carries,
beyond his back,
Yet, the world wonders-
how he smiles
For he carries those arrows
Like a crown
gifted to him
By the demon king
The hardships are his charioteers
And boy, then he flows
like a wind or
like a brook
For the melody of the brook
Can only be heard when it
Collides with the pebbles
And sometimes rock
But the music-
Soothing; To him
To the world; jaw dropped in awe.

There is a moment-
a glimmer of truth,
that finds each of us
in  the quietest  places.
There is also poignant
answer to all of our
own deep soul questions,
if we can be still long
enough to hear it.

**KEEP WISHING**

Midnight -
Alone on the roof,
Missing your warmth beside me .
A comet shoots across the empty sky;
My hand reaches out to grab it
So I can hold it and keep on wishing-
Wishing you were here
So I could wrap my arms around you,
Wishing you were here
To whisper in my ears,
Wishing you were here
So we could stare together
Beyond the dark horizon,
Wishing you were here
So we can gaze into each other's eyes
And say things a million words cannot.
But in a single moment
The comet is gone
Leaving the sky empty again, barren
Just like my heart.

Turning back to the dried leaves, she smiled,

The broken ones that pointed out her destiny,

Walking those miles, she finally got tired,

This time she knew she had to run away and she couldn't deny!

I sat alone in the dark room
It was quite small with dingy seats
Sticky hard floors clung to my feet
Almost felt ashamed of myself
I felt your presence behind me
I'd heard you quietly come inside
I had hoped you would sit nearby
I felt your warmth behind my neck
It trickled down between my legs
Mentally moisturized my mind
You seduced my secrets and sins
Flawlessly into your fiery flame

I am sitting on the terrace of that bar, hoping that something good is of my luck, without imagining that it was causing death, from the day I set foot on the ground ...

With a broken heart and many dreams that were shattered,
Leaving him emotionally, physically and mentally battered.
“The show must go on” he said, putting on a smile, while brushing aside a tear,
As the joker entered the stage, the crowd unknown of his situation, let out a cheer.

Purity

Finally I am free

At last I am to truly be

The one I know inside as me

And not be held by chains

To the world I now sing my part

My mind restored as is my heart

I look upon a brand new start

With very little pains

I do not care to look behind

There's nothing there that I will find

To educate or soothe my mind

Just memories and stains

So onward now, forward I go

Where I shall end, I do not know

Across many bridges high & low

Walking the earthly planes
