Fortitude #Poetry

Winds whipping

Sending rain in every direction

The only light is from the bolt of lightning

This shocks my heart

Reminding it to keeping beating

In a sea of calm

This is my personal storm

The one I must face head on

I will not allow stress to suffocate my voice

My sadness will be used as a weapon

My pen will face off with its sword

My passion flows through the ink

Making my pen mightier than anything the darkness can throw at me

I will elevate my creativity

Providing me radiance as I trudge through the dark night

Malignancy #Poetry

This word is full of people

Who feel self-entitled

Who want to be dignified

They’re more important

They’re above you

Above us all

These ideals are what holds us back as human beings

Your job

Your economic status

Your religion

Your sexual orientation

Your gender

Nor your skin color

Makes you no better than anyone else

I wish people would see

It’s an imagined social status

That is segregating people

Causing more riffs

Turmoil

For what?

Stroking your own ego?

You are the fool

And those who embrace humanity

We are the many

Our words of love

Will not be hushed

By your spews of hatred

Abrasive #Poetry

She acted as if she had thick skin

Not allowing them to see how their words stuck to her

Even though they were stamped hard against her skin

Their ink slowly began to ooze

Filling her pores

Seeping into her skin

Lacing her blood cells

Sending the putrid thoughts to her mind

Snaking around her confidence and optimism

Lacing them with venomous words

Having them play over in her mind

As a song stuck on  repeat

Not be able to fend off the cold, painful embrace

Of the hate and lies

Her light dimmed

The darkness began its feast

Release #Poetry

Arm stretched

Tea sipped

Headphones on

Beats pumping in music

She set the tone for her trance

And she embraced it

Ideas musing

Words combining

Linking together to show her creativity

She never edited herself

Letting her truth

Her soul

Pour out onto the screen

Writing is her digital therapy

Nothing before has set her free

Divided #Poetry

Eyes closed

Taking a deep breathe

Holding it in

Looking for her courage deep inside

She stood up

Letting the air out slowly

She would not allow herself to be unheard

She was against the hate speech

The violence

The killing

She would recite her words

Yell them to the heavens if she has too

Hate will never beat love

Segregation will not destroy acceptance

We are human beings should be united
