You're more beautiful
And more outstanding and bright
Than you'll ever know.

You're worth more than you'll know. Just a reminder.

I Came Out Today...
Mohannie Dec 2018
To my two close friends
Never thought I could do it
I feel amazing
Today is a very special day! I came out as bisexual to my two close friends! This is honestly a HUGE milestone for me and I'm so relieved that I finally let my truth out. This has been quite a long battle and now I feel like my journey has officially started!

Let. Me. Live.
Mohannie Jan 2019
I want to live in a life
Where grades don't cut like a knife.

I want to not live in a place
Where only the smartest win the race

I want to not have a number define who I am
And to be compared or cry over an exam.

I want to be equal, despite all my flaws
Than to feel ripped apart by your hurtful claws

I want you to listen, and your attention you will give.
I am not defined by my grades so please just

Let.

Me.

Live.

Black Sheep
Mohannie Dec 2018
I am quiet when everyone’s loud
all I want is to speak over the crowd

I am small in a world that’s incredibly tall
wanting to be something great and grand like all

I am weak while the world around me is strong
it’s hard to feel like I really do belong

I am different in ways I can’t yet describe
everyone’s the same as I live umong my own tribe

everyone can fly into the air with a leap
as I am stuck on the ground

I am the black sheep.

The Flower Analogy
Mohannie May 2019

Flowers start out as buds
Not knowing what they'll look like
But, when they bloom
They're magnificent
Each one alike in species
Yet, each one unique
Different
But still, as gorgeous as ever

Just like us.

Writer’s Block- A Poem
Mohannie Jan 2019
I’m blocked

Can’t think of anything to write
Searching for inspiration with a fight

I’m locked

Scanning my head for lines
Scouring my heart that confines

I’m shocked

Nothing to say
No words to pay

I’m clocked

Nothing on the sheet
The clock I can’t beat

I’m blocked?

Turns out I just wrote a poem
While suffering from writer’s block
Huh. I wanted to write something but I’m in writer’s block. Here’s the outcome!

*Miss Delilah*
Mohannie Jan 2019

She was a delilah
And sprouted from the ground
She came up to meet ya
And tell you you're found

She grew like a fire
Straight through the sky
And bloomed like a choir
As your tears begin to dry

She was a protector
And became your shield
As sweet as nectar
With her heart she has healed

Miss Delilah was strong
The day she broke through the earth
To sing you this song
And to show you your worth.

At This Time Of Night
Mohannie Dec 2018
at this time of night
when the moon is up high
the quiet's alive

but no one's awake

I'm the only one up
the lights are turned low
and I feel alive

but no one's awake

the silence is chilling
this blanket is warm
my body's alive

but no one's awake

my earbuds plugged in
I take a quick stroll
the music's alive

but no one's awake

at this time of night
when everything's sound
I feel alive

I am awake.
I really like this one! Hope you enjoy it! :)

You Are Okay
Mohannie Dec 2018
Listen to me now,
You are stronger than you know.
Just take a deep breath.
Sometimes, we all need to be reminded that we are okay and that we are worthy. Take a deep breath because you are going to get through this! It may seem tough now, but this will all be okay soon! I believe in you :)

Colorblind To Love
Mohannie Dec 2018
I remember what it was like to have a crush
It was a magical feeling, such a rush!

Having the thought that they might be the one
And when their eyes fall on me, it was I with the sudden feeling of stun.

But now as I grow older
My heart begins to feel colder

Why is this? I ask
My feelings are only a mask

Have I been hurt too much?
Maybe love and I are no longer in touch

I miss this feeling that we speak of
And perhaps, I will forever just be colorblind to love
This has kinda been bothering me for a while. I just feel like I haven’t had a crush or any motivation to have love in a long time. This is pretty stupid but eh.

Even if
Mohannie Nov 2020

Even if you're struggling now,
I'm still so proud of you.

Even if you can't get up,
I'm still so proud of you.

Even if you did some wrong,
I'm still so proud of you.

Because no matter what,
You're still so strong.

And I'm so so proud of you.

The fact that you're reading this right now proves how strong you are.

My Eyelids Still Fall
Mohannie Jan 2019
My eyelids are heavy
I close them once
They continue to fall
A struggle to lift

I stare into space
To keep them ajar
But they still continue
To fall like bricks

Or a feather to the ground
Soft and hard
Heavy or light
But continue to drop

My head is in buzz
I fight to wake
My eyelids still fall
But I stay awake

Because I cannot sleep
Must stay awake
Too much to do
And still too much weight

My eyelids will fall
Which I can't allow
Them to fully close
So I carry the weight
I deleted this one from a bit ago then decided to post it again. Hope you enjoy!

Photography
Mohannie Mar 2019

I aim the old camera
And focus for the subject
As my fingers dance to adjust its settings
For the perfect shot
With my eye in the viewfinder
I angle myself
While feeling for the shutter button
...
It's picture perfect

You Are Loved
Mohannie Apr 2019
If ever you're down
In a dark, dark place
And ready to drown
To leave the Earth's face

Just, please, always remember
Somebody loves you
They'll spark your damp ember
Because they'll always love you

You are alive
You'll breakthrough
And you can thrive
Because
They love you.

Even when you think it isn't possible, someone loves you. We'll all miss you if you go. So please, can you stay for us?

I Hope I'm Not Annoying You
Mohannie Mar 2019

I think of you a lot
And talk to you on the spot

I hope I'm not annoying you

I like you sweet
You've got me beat

I hope I'm not annoying you

I stare at you
My mind feels new

I hope I'm not annoying you

Butterflies in my gut
Their wings won't shut

I hope I'm not annoying you

As bold as thunder
But still I wonder

I hope I'm not annoying you...

Feeling Zero
Mohannie Feb 2019

Zero is weird
Zero is odd
Zero is nothing
Because Zero is flawed

Zero is tired
Zero is scared
Zero wants help
Yet Zero never dared

Zero is lonely
Zero is cold
Zero is young
But Zero feels old.

Future Lover
Mohannie Nov 2020
I can't wait to meet you
The one who'll make me whole

But I will sit patiently
And when I know I've found you

I will love you forever

So, to my one future lover
My hand will be waiting for yours.

Sunshine
Mohannie Apr 2019
Wipe away the dark on a cold cloudy day
Entering our souls with light, where it will lay

Make us feel warm through the coldest hours
And wrap us in safety with the smell of flowers

What we need is the shine from the sun's bright light
To keep us away from life's hurtful fight

So be the sun that will light up a life
Let out your warmth and chase off the strife.

Relief of the Brain
Mohannie Nov 2020

From buzzing bees
To a soft breeze

My mind is calming down

The bubbles rise
And vibration dies

Thoughts flow like a gown

I'm safe right here
My nerves disappear

I don't feel like I'll drown.
A poem about how I felt after listening to music therapy for my racing mind.

A Spring Morning
Mohannie Jan 2019

Like Fire
Mohannie Dec 2018
I can be fire
Let me ignite

But I can be cold
Blown out in an instant

But today I’ll stand strong
Fight through the wind

I will ignite again
My flame will burn bright

I will be fire
An unstoppable force
A new year equals a new me! Today will be the start of me becoming stronger and pushing past my problems. I will be fire and I will be new

The Good Kind of Rain
Mohannie Oct 2020

Oh, to be like the rain on a warm summer's day
To fall to the Earth and allow cool air to stay

The good kind of rain that refreshes the skin
And we dance in the fields as we lift up our chin

Oh, to be this fine rain will fill me with glee
I listen with a smile as the drops hit the tree

The good kind of rain is all that I need
As I wait and I wait for my love to be freed

I love rain :)

Please promise me
to never, ever forget
that you are worthy
just keep that mindset

I look over at you
and all I can see

let your smiles be free

Continue to grow
and you will be gifted
with peace that will flow
and hope that is lifted

Just stay positive, even when staying positive seems impossible.

Dear My Imperfect Body
Mohannie Dec 2018
People may see you as inadequate or flawed
To be imperfect; to be seen by all
Covering up is the only way to go
Dreading for summer and a wanting for snow
Hating to walk by any mirror in sight
Wanting to cry if clothes are at all tight
Needing a way to escape from my thoughts
Having the desire to drop the hate I have brought
I must break free from this seal
Open my eyes and heal

An imperfect body?
I must change for me not everybody
But the change I seek,
It’s not physical to speak
I must learn to love
My harmful thoughts must be undone
Who is perfect?
No one, last time I checked
What makes a flaw?
Take a breath…ahh…
Learn to love yourself
Please, put your pain back on the shelf
It’s time to dance
Break free and take a chance!

So, dear my imperfect body…
I learned to love you, along should everybody.
My first poem on this sight! I just wanted to tell you that there is no such thing as an ugly body. Everyone is beautiful!

Falling Together
Mohannie Feb 2019

I once was apart
And I still might be
Even so, I put the pieces back in the cart
Then stacked them back into me

With a bit of duck tape
And then some glitter glue
I fix them into my shape
Becoming as good as new

I will be better this time
I've learned from my mistake
Climb back to my prime
And this time, I will not break.


You can still mend yourself. You aren't broken.

Hear Me
Mohannie Dec 2018
I want to scream
Let my words burst through in a stream
It has been pushing at me
It wants to be free
It needs to be seen
I need to express where my thoughts have been
I fight to be out
And live my life as I shout
To live in my truth
While I still have my youth
I want you to know
And to let myself grow

I want to say every word
I want to be heard.

In The Mirror

Look into the mirror

Not about the bad

But about the good

How your imperfections make you unique
No one is like you
You are the perfect you
And that's enough

Low Battery
Mohannie Jun 2019

computer notification:

"Low power"
Anxiety rushing like a shower
It's dying

The yellow glow begins to sting
My body starts to feel a ring
It's dying

My mind in swirls and it feels tired
Blood is pumping and emotions wired
It's dying

Lower and lower the percentage goes down
My life is no longer in bound
It's dying

Closer and closer it drains so fast
Far too stressed I will not last

It's dying

It's dying

I'm dying

"Fitting In"
Mohannie Feb 2019

Fitting in has never been my strong suit

For years and years it's been a task
To find core friend and put on a mask

But I've noticed as time continues to sweep by
That maybe it just won't work, no matter how hard I try

This used to upset me, and yes, it still bites
Desperately, I ended up changing myself through fights

I changed and changed until I was no longer me
I locked myself away and would not let free

As time passed along
I kept singing this treacherous song

But soon, I felt tired of who I was
I saw my reflection, and didn't recognize myself. I paused.

A person who stared back at me was someone of lies
Someone who only held sadness in her eyes

This was not me and this was not right
It was time to end this weary fight

As the years go on
I learn to love someone who once was gone

I met new people who loved me as me
And they taught me that this is who I should always be

A person who once was lost and alone
Has learned that she never has to change her own.

A much longer poem than usual but this one is one of my favorites. Please read! I hope you enjoy.

The Day My Life Fell Apart

I remember the day when my life had fallen apart

June 2nd, 2016

But get up and try to live again?

I Feel Like Sleet
Mohannie Dec 2018
Rain can be as beautiful as it can be dangerous.
While sun is warm and bright on the surface.

Hail is loud and hectic and much
As wind can be fast and hurt from its touch

Fog is mysterious
A tornado is serious

Cyclones will swirl
Hurricanes will whirl

Snow is gorgeous in all different ways...

But sleet is heavy and melted; with a sadness that stays

Cats
Mohannie Nov 2020
The warmth of a cat is all that you need,
Your saddened heart will cure with their lead.

They'll keep you company on your loneliest days,
As they curl in a ball and soften their gaze.

Cats are superior to all of the rest,
They'll keep you grounded when you are stressed.

These animals care, though sometimes it seems like they don't,
But when you think everyone has abandoned you,

They won't.

I love my cats <3
