My Bittersweet Melody

The fear and shame to express one’s intimate emotions hinders one of the greatest and most honest quality of living. It divides an individual from their true self and separates them from the people they love and environment surrounding them. Life is beautiful, but there are segments that are almost impossible to accept or tolerate. God has helped me on this…

Just a Moment

This past year I’ve been learning more about the significance of self care. It doesn’t matter if one is an extrovert or an introvert, in my opinion they both have more in common than we would like to believe. Self care is something everyone needs, but not everyone does. Whenever I feel overwhelmed by tasks and emotions I stretch myself…

Hospital Parking Lot

Round and round Narrow spaces Sharp turns Low ceilings Too many cars   Too many visitors Too many people Full of exhaustion Sleepless nights Folded hands of prayer Anxiety sitting Making a home On every chest   Sympathy and love Sealed in a balloon A teddy bear Flowers feeding on tap water Leaning on cold…

Miles

They are blind They see no love No blood They cannot comprehend Unity The warmth of a hug The squeeze of your hand Rosy cheeks The heat of our laughs   Miles hold Only distance against us Time and a little money But it cannot separate Those who live within us   These treasured ones…

Sometimes emotions can only be described when they are being relatively felt. And even then, words fall short of the human experience. A short and sweet poem written a few months back. Still impressed by the spontaneous rhythm that came about during procrastination and stress. ———+———+———- Together Together With love In love Fellowship But the…

Sacrificial Expression

My heart has been significantly heavier especially these past couple of weeks due to all the great fights going on in this world. I wrote this poem a few days ago, and finally reading it over I became very…

Fourth of July – Visual Diary

Early beginnings allow room for great expectations. I rise wide awake, my body quickly filling with good health. The day cracks open and I am ready to set out. Legs swing out of bed, quickly get ready, and out the door with camera in hand before I could think twice. Finally, I get in my car…

Way Up There

Since being back home my mind has been burdened with worry, fear, and fading dreams. It’s unavoidable to notice the immense pain going around the world. Especially locally within my country, within my own town. I’ve been having trouble grasping peace that used to come so abundantly during difficult times. To see the light in a dark…

Blissful Beauty

Creating this blog was something I’ve desired to do for quite some time now. After much prayer and contemplation, I believe now is the time. The time to share the depths of who I am during these fleeting moments we call life. To start, I wanted to share an earlier poem I wrote in August 2011….
