Dear future daughter or son
I love you so with all my heart
That you'll know as soon as life's begun
I’ll never hurt you on purpose
Here I promise I’ll give you my all
Even after you stand confident and tall
I am someone you’ll be able to turn to when in need
If your heart is broken just come to me
Mommy will know best, and I’ll help you heal
Never will you be alone or forced to kneel
You’ll go somewhere in life, far to where your dreams call you
Like I followed mine to have you
I hope my suffering and pain has been plenty to rid you of yours
Take this and watch all the opportunities and doors
They will open wide with possibility and life
As my arms open wide with nurturing and love
Watch the sky, study the clouds
They move at their own pace and still get around
Listen to trees whisper among each other
They stay close but grow independently, as did mother
See the night sky bloom with stars
And the planets find their destiny from Pluto to Mars
See the waves kiss the sand
You can be whatever you want, whether woman or man
Disparity is a virtue even when you won’t find immediate clarity
It’ll bring hardships but prosperity
Where you won’t find solidarity you’ll eventually find popularity
From your attitude and mind’s wise unfollowing of the technicalities
Don’t be afraid my baby, when your thoughts run wild and free
Taming them isn’t always a necessity
Just learn who you are and hold it close at heart
Take all the colors of your personality- paint now with your art
You’re going to be unrelenting, brave and strong-willed
Do what you must, even when tough times call for the swallowing of a bitter pill
Keep going even when people cause you to fall ill
Run, my honey, run and run
Run, run, run to where you need to go
Run, my darling to where you know
Run and keep running to the lights beautiful flow
As it casts on about and lets out an astounding glow
It is where you’ll find your home, and let it be so
Let these words guide you through life
One day you’ll be born, and my letter you’ll set sight
I love you future daughter or son, you’ll know wrong from right
And I’ll love and love with all my might.
I will treat my future daughter or son much better than my mother treated me.

Look inside and you’ll find no depth
Only the same kind of repetitive
No originality or charm to admire
The monotony of human beings this poem’ll inspire
Leading no revolutionary life, going down not higher
It’s hard to connect in a world on fire
Burning and crumbling with no left desire
For change, only greed
The end becomes nigher

Grey pavement
watches me walk
The world
listens to me talk
The same old nothing
whose **** fault?
I wonder if I got myself here
giving up to sulk
Breathe in the dusted chalk
where white words leave stinging salt
In wounds that are normalized
A heart once together comes apart

The crowd rushes fast

Like a cold river stream

Watch it glisten and gleam

Or so that was a dream

The water's actually dull from what I’ve seen

And in view is slowly disappearing

I can’t keep up, I hear no cheering

Weight of words and isolation is instead what I’m hearing

Nobody no longer stands in the window peering

The last fades out of sight, which is what I was fearing

I’m all alone, burning eyes become searing.

Tell me again
Your words repeated
People are broken records
The promises are not needed
When you cannot keep them
In a dim light
Cast into a dark night
The truth of people just might
Find itself by this
People come and go
Leaving here and leaving so
Leaving broken hearts and broken bones
With somewhere to go and someone to see
They’ll replace you and leave you be
Find yourself walking those same halls
Walking that same walk
Alone one day, accompanied the next
Don't hold your breath
The cycle will always remain the same
But hold your strength and stay sane
Where did they go?
Where did they go?
A place I do not know
Leaving my feeling unknown
Where did they go?
Where did they go?
They come to feel the waters
Leaving ripples and the daughters
Where did they go is a question inferior
To the one asking about your own interior
Who am I?
Don’t lose yourself
Rolling off an unbalanced shelf
One must steady themself
In this sea of temporary visitors into your life
That leave no new lessons and hurt like a knife.

Adrenaline pumping into my heart
False hallucinations in the dark
Dread and haunt fills the air
What is that over there?
Half asleep, I can't stay awake
My eyes should've for my sake
My dreams take me by the hand
And throw me into a horrific land
The fear built on possibilities
And instilled in realities
Sleep paralysis joins in too
I'd rather be sleep deprived completely, wouldn't you?

There’s a woman in the streetlight surrounded by reddish dark
Her body feeling numb, her body feeling stark
As she waits for a man to come and leave his mark
No father or dreams nothing to believe
Sold into this life, her mom is the enemy
And her tears and body are its currency
No point to beg or plead
The lonely men are satisfied when she bleeds
She gives them all and everything
But they continue to feed
Some get careless and leave her to breed
A baby on the way but the world it’ll never see
As the red on her legs triggers tears to the sink
Again she starts the cycle
Smoking a cigarette, sitting under the light pole
Dreading the next man to take her to bed
Knowing sooner or later she’d be left for dead
But the feeling won’t register anymore
As mommy had done this to her
Mommy had made her a *****
And now she’s only wanted nothing more
Then to go to a home and open a door
Without fear of being pushed to the floor
While her body is seen as just another lure
She never asked for this or the ***** kiss
Never wanted to feel it forced in
As her body grows tired and gets fragile and thin
Wishing again and again for a better life as another tear rolls off her chin
And joins the others in the puddle of unwanted sin.
