And for all the mountains
that have caught you by surprise
and for the desires of your heart
that have taken an unimaginable
length of time,
even there you are free,
to hold on to childlike faith,
you are being prepare for more,
as you wait.
Today I drank a deep yellow,
felt heat inside a golden glow,
arched my lips now kissed thankful,
smiling for the tension that I did pull.
I finally release the string from my bow,
arrows shooting straight through the water though.
It’s my own colored rainbow.
FOLLOW @the.scripturient : Be mindful to your surroundings, pay attention to nature like the way trees are lined up or the way the sky changes colour. Because when you pay attention to the little things around you, you become more aware of yourself. You become in the moment and that alone, should make you happy.
When your thoughts begin to close in and hold you frozen in darkness, I pray with everything in me you pray for light to protect and release you. I pray you pray for comfort to hold you. I pray you pray for yourself in every way until no trace of darkness keeps you in that sickening space. Understand, you don’t have to see light to be light. You don’t have to feel light to know light is here. You will never ever find light in the world. You must look inside your soul. Because the world is a dark place and it’s only because of souls like yours the sun shines and give us hope that we can find light within a dark world.
If there is one thing I could do for the rest of my life, it would be reading and writing. Writing is like breathing for me. It's a necessity. I've been writing since I was very young.
I actually still remember the first time I wrote my name on a chalkboard in my kindergarten. I was 5. I was so mesmerized by what my hand could do when I move it certain way, wrote it letter by letter, and finally saw my name materialized in front of my eyes.
Fast forward to present day, I am honored my poems are featured in @HerHeartPoetry latest anthology The Annual 2018. Borrowing the description from the book, The Annual 2018 represents the highly commended works of poetry submitted to the inaugural Her Heart Poetry international micropoetry competition. It is divided into five sections: Who I Am, The Love We Accept, The Significance of Significants, Writing to Heal, and Spreading Fire. Representing 38 voices from the global poetry community, these works represent a new age of emotion set in the digital era.
I am putting the link to purchase the copy in my bio. This book will be great as a stocking stuffer, a gift for yourself, or for the bookworms in your life. 😉
Her Heart Publishing is a not-for-profit publishing press that support and showcase the work of new and emerging poets. I love their core values: Share. Inspire. Provoke.
Again, I am thrilled to be included in this anthology. Thank you all for being part of my writing journey!

For as long I can remember, I've paid attention to how things are worded. Whether it be conversation, poetry, lyrics... I've just always had a love for being able to say something simple that still holds so much depth. One of my all time favorites by The Civil Wars.. "Your hands can heal, your hands can bruise. I don't have a choice, but I'd still choose you." After years of having this postless IG account I created a long time ago, something in me decided that this is the time in my life to run with it. Not gonna lie.. the vulnerability in sharing such personal work makes me anxious. Super anxious. And I think it's because sharing these parts of me go hand in hand with sharing pieces of my life too. "Dirty laundry" as some might call it. But that's ok. Because I'm incredibly proud of who I've become throughout the trials of different kinds of relationships I've experienced, the one with myself especially. And I'm proud of the way my love(literally & figuratively) and I have grown.
I hope you follow along.🙈 Some pieces are old, some are new.. some are the new me connecting with the old me. And even if just ONE thing I write connects with you.. or changes the way you look at something in a positive way.. I'd be over the moon. Enjoy.🖤
