A Pegasus perplexus 

A zebra, made to stand out, forever wild and free. It seeks to rid itself of those that would ride on its back. It strives to know it’s stripes, not to earn them… For with that wisdom comes a new genesis of elegance, the birth of the peagusus. Made to fly high above life’s perplexus…controllingContinue reading “A Pegasus perplexus “

whispers and screams

(Co-written by @fontsize4poetry) They tell me that I’m no good. Crawling up along my shoulder blades, they cling to my ear lobes and pull up. Whispering with conviction- Look at you. Ugh. Do better. They tell me it’s my fault, pushing back my shoulders, tugging aggressively on my ear lobes, screaming with assertion. Look atContinue reading “whispers and screams”

Beautiful Struggle

so much beauty…you would struggle to see, but be left in awe once you saw it… I watched myself profit from my plummet… Encouraged  by contagiously courageous condemnation,  inspired by painstakingly painful perspicacity… What gave me the audacity, to stay, to face it… I had to face it, I could never escape it, through empty glasses,Continue reading “Beautiful Struggle”

Militia 

Attention!  They spill blood to get your attention, They spread tension, They watch your entire nation, and way of life derail. as we, point fingers, bickering about irrelevant details… At ease!   They sit and They watch, They’re at ease, innocent blood spilt on the streets, genocide, hunger, famine, disease. They smile and look on,Continue reading “Militia “
