    Circles Of Ash

    A ring of love
    Burned to circles of ash
    As if a dove could stand
    The cigarettes and all the
    Black

    A ring of love
    I no longer respond to
    A touch without thinking of abuse
    I try to interpret and it's been fused
    Black


    I try to undo what I can
    But, I can only carry myself
    If I can come to my feet and stand
    Without any help then I will be able
    I envy the constant state of stable that is,

    ""B L A C K"


    A sweeping band of rain
    Torrential as it's pouring in vain
    Clutch has shook me
    And rattled me
    An onyx seductive black

    Abandoned

    She's a beautiful,
    A strong standing structure.
    Magnificent, bold
    Attracting people of all races,
    A wonderful sight to behold.

    Then came the war, trouble, turbulence.
    They fled, leaving her behind
    Cannon balls, rifles and pistols drill holes in her.
    Cries of defeat and clouds of smoke fills the air.
    Parts of her crumbled, some stood proud to survive.

    Years passed, after she was abandoned,
    But still stood, though parts of her crumbled.
    People of all races still came for her, to study her history.
    To tell their children to come about the crumbled but Still tall and proud structure.

    I see how this world is a little unfair,
    dreams to cross the sky!
    She said, gulp a bit of this,
    it isn't the random red wine.
    Detailed intensity of a ever growing story,
    or a candle with no fury,
    She said, stop creating vaccum chambers,
    expect no one to hold you at overwhelming hangovers!
    It was a silent afternoon,
    & I couldn't get over the energy.
    She said, something about you is too fulfilling,
    & you shouldn't take yourself too seriously.
    I saw those boundaries, down there,
    they told me a few of this dreams, just kill them.
    She said, you are a survivor,
    how could you build a non rational therapy.
    I pre assumed my destiny & acted like any other layman!
    A gift of tranquility or a little piece of vulnerability!
    She said & people like you standup with their shoulder's high,
    They dont overwhelmingly pre assume & then start to sigh!
    I looked at the sky for a minute,
    breathing in a non existential reality, is just not my pursuit!

    Chains of fear

    Nothing was what it seemed
    I could not believe the hypocrisy
    The lies of twisted christianity
    The delusions stole my humanity
    Spellbound by a book of false information
    The lies they told of eternal damnation
    Scaremongering was always persistent
    Their version of life was inconsistent
    Took my chance to finally escape
    A change of direction decided my fate
    Guilty conscience has not disappeared
    But no longer bound by the chains of fear

    Take two steps forward,
    Makes 'em three steps back.
    Give it a break,oh honey!
    It's not a life-hack.
    Thugs in my mind,
    Wonderin', "act out".
    Oh no,too bad,
    It gives no clout.
    Agreed; tough life,
    Whose not though right?
    Alibis? Not working!
    Be a show as might!
    Plans up my sleeves,
    Gotta "B" for my "A".
    If that doesn't work,
    Here's a "C","D"..'kay?
    The myth, the legend,
    Baddest bitch of 'em all!
    You know who's me,
    It's only me standing tall!

    "Violence but a remembrance of a psychotic fear "

    Memories and nightmares are all that remains
    Time is slowly drifting away with little to no trace
    Your face and anger always I see
    Chasing to erase me from time and mind
    There was strength I once found
    It made me unbind chains wrapped so tight
    All we done was go thru the fight you tore my heart
    Ripped my soul and threw me down
    On this not so merry go round
    The sound of your voice haunts me day and night
    The evil of this sound often is a fright
    Blood stained nightmares is what you left behind
    Forever in my mind they will remain
    Scratches the surface for a short time that seemed forever
    On and on it went drowning my life never seemed to find
    Or how to unwind what turmoil you put me in
    Broken bones and broken bottles,and scratches and scars
    Bruised me as they crushed me as well suspended above my life wondering
    What was in my head ,why I was in this situation
    So severe I could end up dead your magnitude so intense
    Kept me caged and locked inside this world you controlled
    So long wishing for death to take me away
    Just a inch I crumbled each day with each tear
    Wounds cut so deep and bled so much
    I didn't think I could touch the reality of free from you
    So many years and time we're stolen from me
    My breath failed and escape seem not to prevail
    Chilling laughs and hateful eyes behind the deceiving mask
    Thought your were hiding , thought no one would ever find out
    Your hatred for me I never understood
    Wasn't a answer or explanation that described it anyways
    Just control and fear were your weapons
    Often I sit and think back why did this happen
    What was wrong with me to be stuck in hell
    Nothin was the answer , wasn't my fault I had no blame
    You gripped me with torture and agony
    Time and time again
    I don't think one could imagine the severity of this life
    Haven't experienced or been thru ,mine to me was aweful
    Others were way worse , some never made it out alive
    I'm thankful for the strength it took to climb outside
    The shell you had me under , the fear from your breath
    I'm free now living my life , happy and knowing that them boxes had doors
    I found one and escaped from within your hold you had so long
    I'm a woman , a warrior and such
    Strong with unbreakable ties to a strength that carried me
    When I thought I was by myself you was there to see me thru
    Angels among us and unanswered prayers are heard and fufilled
    Sometimes the patience isn't there or hard to find
    Look to the heavens ,sun is shining down
    Ride the rays from the rainbow that came from my tears
    And wiped away all them fears and stood a new heart beating with confidence and clarity like a phoenix from the ashes rose above strong and proud .......

    Miracle

    They say I'm strong.
    Infact the strongest person they have ever known to have been through all those things but still survive.
    But everyday it's a miracle to me that I haven't taken that permanent solution yet.

    Ex Adventures in Learning

    Fear is buried in the back of my mind
    Panic spewing words that are quite unkind
    In the past I cannot just leave behind
    Scars reminding me to forget your love

    My brazen voice I can no longer find
    My vocal cords you always seem to bind
    Deep down I fear you truly hate me so
    Ever since I went and bruised your ego
    Scars reminding me to forget your love

    Years ahead I hope I don't remind
    You of the pain and misery from long ago
    Our time together wasn't always sad
    But I'm on eggshells scared to make you mad
    Scars reminding me to forget your love

    "The Wall Of Fear"
    9-7-2020


    Sometimes the wall is my only friend
    It's there when no one else is
    It holds me and my tears
    It comforts me til the end of my sadness
    My tears are flowing more then anyone can help
    I need someone but no one is there
    But the wall it's reached for me
    Let me cry on it and holds my heart
    When it breaks so
    I don't know if I'm gonna make it thru the pain and sadness I'm in
    I pray all the time I never stop
    It's hard to hold on to a promise
    That sometimes takes awhile
    But I try to have faith and hold on
    I talk to god while the wall holds me
    So many tears have been shed
    Storm after storm I have barely
    Been afloat
    When someone gona be the wall
    Be the one who catches my tears
    Hold my heart, hold me ..

    Hoping For Disney

    Sweet, innocent, carefree

    The nature of a small child

    Warped by society

    Lured in when they smiled

    Promises always made to she

    A kiss in exchange to be defiled


    A kiss meant so much more to me


    Years pass and shame sets in

    Secrets heavy on a young heart

    Cycles and patterns begin

    I wasn't the one with which this starts

    But rather the next of kin

    Doesn't matter if you're smart

    Evil always claims it's next victim

    My wisdom in this I wish to impart


    A kiss meant so much more to me


    I'll do my best to stop the spinning

    Of the spiral leading down

    With trauma in my genes it seems there's no winning

    If that was true, my eyes would be brown

    I accept now I cannot change my beginning

    But I sure can try to turn the generational trauma around

    A kiss meant so much more to me

    "Survival "
    4-17-2021


    Waves in my head are starting to
    Play dead sensors malfunction
    I search for peace does it exist
    For me I don't understand life
    Why pain seems to always find
    I'm burning alive inside
    Struggling everyday to survive
    I don't want to be here anymore
    In my head feeling failure
    Nothing is left for me except
    A child's love and laughter
    Long ago I heard I broke that
    Piece by piece because of my stupidity and just simply an idiot
    Tales of my life aren't good
    There tarnished and broke
    Been cracking all along
    I hid the pain for years
    Forcing back my tears
    I can't anymore I'm drowning
    In the tears I cry often
    I don't know which way to turn
    To make better somthing that
    Has no solution no ending
    I cant be fixed or mended

    nothing

    Nothing stays forever..
    Not even these tears..
    These wounds..
    This endless road..
    And all those pain..
    Just try to hold on in this storm..
    Cause this too will pass..
    And will be replaced by the rainbow..

    You may cry and swear out..
    Just convince yourself
    That you're strong enough..
    Dust it off and strengthen up your crown..
    You'll come out not only as survivor..
    But also as a warrior❤️

    A TRIBUTE TO MEDICOS.

    They, being the biggest victim of sleep deprivation,
    put others to sleep so as to perform surgeries in the theatres of operation.

    They taste the sweetest of victories by saving lives in the life-death wars,
    they witness the ugliest of defeats while death takes over each of their endeavours.

    The tension, the fear, the chaos, the kind of mental pressure in the OT they face,
    needs to be saluted these souls umpteen times, stab all problems with calm, that surface.

    They play with blood and wounds, needles, scissors and knives,
    not to harm or hurt but to save the trudging lives.

    They are the one who struggle to spend quality time with their family which life never lends,
    whilst their precious time to cure someone's else beloved, they willingly expend.

    The humiliation from the family members of the deceased is way beyond tolerance
    and we, the normal people, only see their fat packages, overlook their patience and forbearance.

    They take pains to vanish the autumns of deadly pendamics & prolonged illness,
    risking rather many a times losing their lives to bring back the spring of health & happiness.

    They need to be saluted and thanked, the way we do for our soldiers,
    only their battlefields are different, they bear similar responsibilities on their shoulders.

    May they be blessed, may all their prayers be heard at once,
    Hail to all the medicos out there, who are living so that healthily live all the animals & humans.

    How i survive

    Get easily attached, get easily burned
    My feet been frozen dealing with this term
    Over and over again i never learned
    I'm screaming so loud but only me can heard.

    The trauma i have, lose opportunities
    All is black and white,
    never boosts my immunity.
    My ashes been blown, my development has grown.

    I script my past gracefully though its lack of pulley
    The ride go smoothly and my friends start comforts me.
    I run into flowers that shown me colors, shining with hope and cruller.

    Writing my soul, sharing my thoughts
    At first its good at last it wounds
    Breaking myself up then build with sadness
    I keep doing this till i survive the process.

    Enshrined in the purest love

    Held in divine hands

    "LISTEN"

    I understand you're not consciously a "bully" but if you cannot pick up on discomfort caused by your strong opinions, sense when you're cornering someone into submission due to your manipulative self righteousness - no matter how blindly you believe what you believe and no matter how many examples or ideals you can present to support your thought process - it doesn't prove why another person shouldn't be able to share an opposing dialogue.
    Your beliefs can always be a trigger point for someone and furthermore when you dismiss them it becomes yet another traumatic experience for them where they couldn't speak up for themselves. Some people are simply not as loud and opinionated as others and more often than not there is trauma involved when a person just shuts down and starts nodding along when you did not give them a chance to really share their feelings - this is unintentional bullying.
    I may be speaking only from the point of view of the 'oppressed' but that's the entire point. Do take a moment and "listen" when you feel that the other person doesn't truly agree with you. I'm not necessarily talking about debates or arguments about politics, sports, entertainment etc. But real conversation about real life experiences and feelings.
    Defensiveness can have you live in a box forever and not realise that there is more to learn. Let's not shut down people by assuming they're accusing or dismissing you by simply sharing their thoughts - many times we all need to be corrected and appropriated because we are NOT perfect. No matter which religious/spiritual leader you follow - they ARE NOT perfect too. People aren't perfect that's why we need to humble ourselves and be open to uncertainty. That one second of uncertainty when you hear - "I disagree" , "I don't believe in this" , "I have a different opinion" , etc. It's OKAY. Just listen or if you really cannot then make it clear - say that you are not open to discussing this matter or you don't wish to hear the other person - this may have it's own consequence but at least it won't be a useless interaction where you only listen to respond and remain closed off or at a constant battle with everyone who doesn't think like you.

    Darkness consumed her innocence,
    But it gave her wisdom!
    Never was a lady, she was a little fighter,
    She chose to leave her throne to be a traveller!
    Fighting her own battles, the lone wolf became stronger...
    Fighting death alone, she discovered the hidden answers!
    A stark, a warrior, the ultimate survivor ever born...
    She was Arya stark of winterfell, and she finally found her home.
