Battling The World

When the world is against me, I battle alone. Standing my ground firm, head held high and looking at them in the eye. I may be alone, I may be singled out but I won’t give up. I’ll be bruised and I’ll be cut but I won’t bow down. It is for my respect and…

Woman Of My Dreams

I fight for myself and fight for others in need. I hold my ground when you are shaking the earth under me. My thoughts are my own and I speak what I think. I know what I deserve and won’t settle for less. I am the woman of my dreams.

In My Memories

A house full of memories I will leave behind to make memories in a new home. My giggles will echo long after I am gone. My scent will remain on the pillow and my voice in the twirl of the wind chime. I’ll remain in the photo frames of the wall. I’ll leave my touch…

My Tired Soul

I wake up tired after a good night’s sleep and feel exhausted all the time. Why? This question bugs me day and night but the answer was lost until today. It is not my body that is exhausted, it is my soul. I trust no one and loves me nobody. I escape my reality but…

Rinsing Off The Devil

A pure soul I was. Am I pure anymore? I was trampled by every passerby, laughed at and crushed like a piece of trash. They burned me with their false selves and abandoned me when I was no use. But I am still alive today. I am not pure anymore, my soul is dark. You…

I Am Alive

You have sucked life out of my eyes, my soul and my existence. Now I float above the ocean like world as a dead body would. My eyes are still open but they are frozen pearls with no tears in them. My heart is still beating but feels nothing. My brain is alive and well…

The Colored Canvas

Staring at the blank canvas, she stands with paints around her. It was a beautiful sunset right outside her window. But today nothing could inspire her to pick up the brushes. Lying on the table with the palette was a form that would admit her to medical school. But did she want that? Her father…

Pool Of Blues

A dip in the pool of blues gave me perspective. Is blue the color of sadness that I feel today? Then why is the sky so blue? It is free from all strings, has wind blown over it and smiles in the chirping of birds. Why is the water so blue? It is calm and…

In An Expanse Of Snow

It is a serene scene in front of me today. I stand on top of a snow covered mountain and look in the distance. I soak in the tranquility of the fluffy cottony dreamy landscape. This is the stuff of my winter dreams that I would weave with sweaty palms. I’d shudder in this cold…

Slipping Away…

I stare at the waves touching my feet. They wash away small shells from the blue depths. In a trance I take a handful of sand and watch it slip away. Grain by grain it leaves my hand as if it were never there. The tighter I hold on to it, the more it escapes….

With A Click

“A woman can’t do this job, it just isn’t a woman thing.” “Women look good on the other side.” “Do you even know how to handle that thing?” So many insults came her way. With each rejection her resolve got stronger. Her fight against the society got fierce. She wasn’t playing the “feminist” here but…

Dying Strong

What does death feel like? The moment you breathe your last, what is it like? Maybe I’ll be suffocated and strangled. Pushing to be saved! Gasping for every breath that might be my last! But what happens when I am way over that point? When life seems hazy and blurry, a distant memory I once…
