Her.

She thought heartbreak was the worst she’d face,

When depression came knocking.

Fingers crossed, hoping it was a phase,

Then the light disappeared, with anxiety blocking.
All seemed lost and time went too fast,

She just wanted to leave the city,

A while after, a weight lifted, past was past,

And she found serendipity.

Serendipity.

Caught in a lie,

Her first love struggled. 

Surprised by her own reflection,

She was finally awake.

She could now begin,

Put aside her stigma.

Sunshine indeed came after darkness,

Listening to his mixtape.

Back Then and Now.

​Back when the days were long and the trees were young,

A woman with dreams was repressed and sold in the name of marriage.

And millenniums since the same occurs, while all state humans to be free.

With Time.

​Shamed because of her opinions, her race , her size, her face.

Shamed by strangers, by apparent friends, by other and by family.

She who once saw her obstacles as a phase.

Was now hiding in plain sight aimlessly.

With time, all the unusual stereotypes grew on her.

Not long enough.

​The sun had just started to rise,

He’d been up a while, looking at his child’s mother,

thinking how his decision was indeed wise.

It had always been her and no other.
They’d been luckier than most he knew,

but he was still sad, it all happened so fast.

Memories without her in his mind were few,

But he craved for more, as the pain in his chest told him this would be his last.

Behind The Shadows.

We have equal rights says the world, 

so proud, so blind to reality.

First its women who were mistreated, 

nowadays equality is a scarcity. 

 

We’re cast aside for our color, gender, sexuality etc,

we are discriminated based on technicalities and genetics.

Even in a modern era, some minds are unfathomable, 

the free world is a cage held together by parlour tricks.

 

Those of us, rejected by society, 

we are but greatness withheld from within. 

But I still believe one day the world will see,

the way we’ve been treated is a sin.

Sit Tight.

Everyday is brand new,

filled with adventure and fun.

I spend this time with my few,

taking all life has to offer under the sun.

My life is like a roller coaster ride,

which way it’ll turn I’m unaware.

And I stay still without taking a side,

letting all the haters bitch and stare.

You & I

Tears. Laughter. Anger. Happiness.

You made me feel it all.

In the end we were washed away by sadness, 

But our time together I won’t forget at all.

If I saw you years from today,

I know my heart will smile.

You were my first, I’ll never regret your stay,

You my love, were my secret mile.

Never Alone.

He awoke to the sound of her crying,

sleep deprived he took her in his arms.

He whispered rhymes and promised he was trying,

but it was all in fain, a baby needed a mother.

 

He was exhausted and close to tears,

this is not how he’d expected his days to be.

Losing his little girl was the biggest of his fears,

and he didn’t know what to do.

 

And as she finally settled down and looked him in the eye,

he saw that he wasn’t alone.

Though he was a single father, his wife’s memory will never die,

all he’d have to do was look for her in his babies smile.
