A call to order
Arise O Compatriots
The time is near when we head for the ballots
The time when we decide for a new revolution
Or maybe another time to renew corruption

Many voices are silenced out of fear
And all day long,...Read More

Shake the core of your existence

The Monster Within
The chill of the morning air startles the soul. 
A disastrous night brought hot flashes and sweat.

A mind torn into two spirits, into two people.

Cut my wings or put me inside

Premium Member remberance of our veterans
Of all the best, there’s many at rest
What matters most, they stood their post
They are the brave, they did not waive
To those who serve, such honor they deserve

Charging from the front line, more troops followed behind
Never in the clear, did...Read More

My Depression
My Daily Depression
(3/20/2019)

I see shapes of gray
And black too
I wonder what it’s going to be like
For me and you
When we lose it all
Especially, our furr babies of love
What would we do?
Would we still believe in above?
What can we do, to...Read More

Real Me
All wrapped up in a body that’s perfectly flawed, 
grey hair showing up as the sunshine hits her head.
Imperfect skin, 
pores are prominent,
Wrinkles emerged.
Brown colored complexion, 
waved its glory to the sun.
Unafraid to be blushed,
a middle aged liege who’s been...Read More

You are a pillar,
Therefore you don’t need a healer
But an ordained preacher
Open your ears, your heart...

Storms do persist, be...Read More

For each breaking day draws 
A man closer to his end.'

And she is too quick sometimes 
Or she is too chaotic sometimes.

She is the one who stands against all odds
And proves herself unique and confident in every role.
