Watch Your Step!

Watch Your Step!

                Have you ever felt stuck? It feels like the more effort you exert, the harder things become. It’s almost as if all your grit is creating this unintentional tension in your muscles that seemingly makes you incapable of moving forward.                 Tonight, I was sitting

La Paz: The Drive

La Paz: The Drive

                I got the incredible opportunity to go to a beautiful beach in La Paz called Balandra. The water was crystal clear and the surroundings were simply unbelievable! That being said, I truly believe I saw more on the drive.                 As we drove three hours

The Faceless Harasser

                For those who know me well, you may know I have a slight obsession with the card game hearts. Yet, there is one little problem with this game – you have to have three people to play. That being said, sometimes it can be hard to get three ready players together at

Disneyland

                And with a gently yet ever so powerful gust, the solution morphed itself into a convex form. It quickly melded its nonexistent edges into a spherical figure. Then subscribing to gravity and the soft, warm breeze, the sphere floated amidst the amalgam of like silhouettes. Each of the shapes were bound in

Choose You

Choose You

Though content and loved, straight to my core, I cannot help but to want more. I can’t sit in this place, where everyone’s just okay, because I know that we, can be better than today. But society is married, to the detrimental notion, that self-love is indeed selfish potion. Though if you aren’t okay, within your own skin, you can’t

Trouble, Turmoil, Triumph

  It’s in my eyes. It’s in me. I am hurt beyond, what you can see. Shouting out. But I’m silenced. Your actions were, so unlicensed. All but broken. Shattered pieces. Look upon, my many creases. I’m alright. I’m still breathing. Afflictions can, be so deceiving. Cry the tears. Feel the pain. Don’t submit, to disdain. Ego bruised. Anxieties waken. But I’m

Carlos: Puerto Vallarta

                While vacationing in Puerto Vallarta, one thing that had me baffled was the amount of gratitude people embodied. I believe our Americanized definition of appreciation and gratitude is mildly tainted and derived from a tunneled sense of vision. There, people stop and smell the roses (yes, I know that’s cheesy), but we

Make Me Move

               The heat envelops my body. It entraps every facet of my being. It slivers through my lips and seeps into every tissue in my body, charring me from the inside out. It makes me act amuck. Hell is seeping through my pores and forcibly directing these limbs to twist and turn in ways

Alone

Erect I was yet straight I wasn’t, Confident I seemed yet that I did not feel, Different I was yet me they failed to see. Side by side yet together they weren’t, United by hate yet otherwise broken, Aggressive were they yet through cowards play. To the sky I reached yet blind by clouds, It answered back yet I swayed
