I've been lost. I've been found.
I've been up, down, and around.
I've been here. I've been there.
It feels like I've been everywhere
Without going barely anywhere at all.
I've been accepted. Rejected.
Made fun of by my peers.
But i'm here to tell you if I've made it through,
There's hope for you too.
Just breathe,
and don't be embarrassed
If you shed a few tears
An external stimulus
Triggered WAVES in my mind
Intricacies of WAVES
I was in search to find
I was on internet to know
What what WAVES in science meant
I found material beyond science
It wasn't at all my intent
What what WAVES meant
I inadvertently learnt
WAVES meant
Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service
In US NAVY in world war II
Women Accepted for Volunteer Entertainment Service
Women Available for Volunteer Entertainment Service
There are theories of WAVES in stock market
There are WAVES in hair style
Women making WAVES all around
In Education, Entrepreneurship, Entertainment
I couldn't remain without smile
I forgot WAVES in science
Went to sleep in my bed
Good things of WAVES were said
I dreamt of WOMAN and WAVES whole night
More women in my life than men
My mother
My daughter
At the top
I saw life WAVES of my wife
On the monitor stop
A prayer is granted

Someone's prayer is accepted

Accumulation of actions
In violation
Brings pain and suffering
For their correction
The Limitless limits
Their strength and power
There are moments of tower
Pain and misery are showered
Often for past life actions
In violation
They declare they are innocent
Finding helpless
They turn beggars
Their response to a scare
It is a prayer
Burning candles
To throw light on their plight
A prayer is granted
A prayer is denied
Someone's prayer is accepted
Someone's prayer is rejected
Discrimination apparent
Discrimination He denies
Their Karma already decide
Scientific research has revealed
Whether you pray or not
Outcome isn't changed
It is just
Sometimes outcomes
With your will and prayers coincide
A prayer is granted!
Someone's prayer is accepted!
I give here a link to find out what scientific research has to say about prayers -------

THERE IS NO HARM IN PRAYING. IT GIVES YOU STRENGTH AND PURIFICATION.

Already buckled in the backseat
I’d want to come to the grocery
And while you’d push the basket
I followed after so closely

We dug up weeds and planted poppies
Gold and vermillion
And I remember I felt my heart drop
When you said you can’t be friends with your children

I remember thinking
If you can’t accept me then how will I accept myself
you taught me everything
If you can’t accept me how will I accept myself?

And I’m not gonna get my confirmation
But I really want to make you proud
I know it’s not what you expected
It’s harder to say some things out loud

I didn’t get the chance to tell you
She told you before I could say a word
And then I didn’t want to talk about it
I ran away, I lost my nerve

You gave me all the space I wanted
That was four years ago
until it seemed like you’d forgotten
Until I moved to Chicago

And I was thinking
If you can’t accept me then how will I accept myself
You taught me everything  
If you can’t accept me how will I accept myself?

And I just want to feel accepted
But I really want to make you proud
I know I’m not what you expected
It’s harder to say some things out loud
she was afraid
when they looked
at her
what did they see
always wondering
what they were thinking
how do they feel
analyzing every
little thing she said
overthinking
she just cared
so much
she just wanted to be
accepted

The absolutely radical,
Mind boggling idea of being accepted.
-A fantasy served with insecurity
On the side, stained
With the lipstick you only wear
On third dates, the idea of
what love "should feel like"
Bubbling below the skin
Until you get blisters and boils,
sick and heady but starry eyed.
Ignoring the naysayers,
Oh so what if sleeping beauty
Gets roofied here.
The potential to get shattered,
Identity mutilated beyond recognition
Is, after all, a small price to pay
If you finally get to.. Belong.

lavender has always been just that - lavender.

until

I met her.

lavender is stealing is kisses in the kitchen,
nosey neighbours peering over,
two souls, simply smitten.
lavender is sneaking glances across the crowd,
spotting her smile - seventh heaven, standing on a cloud.
lavender is nerves getting the best of you,
but feelings you’re willing to push through.
lavender is being shy,
‘stay a while longer, don’t say bye’.
lavender is laughing out of your stomach,
wanting to show her off in public.
lavender is melting with each message,
slipping away from the world for just a few seconds.
lavender is a racing heartbeat when she lays on your chest,
then contentment, as your jumping heart takes a rest.
lavender is forever looking at her lips,
mind filled with thoughts about dancing with her, hands around her hips.

I met her.

until

lavender is accepted in every garden,
I will keep my lavender hidden.

lavender will always be just that - lavender.

I recently came out. I met an amazing girl. My life will be forever changed.
Rejected
By the
People
Who were
Supposedly
Going to help
Me become corrected
I feel neglected,
Dejected
I get it. No, I really do. But seriously?!!!!

Pressured at the age of eleven to allow unwanted hands crawl up my body,
Pressured at the age of fifteen to give up my virginity,
Pressured at the age of sixteen to give into my addiction of feeling accepted -
Not accepted by others, but by boys who only love you if you give them handjobs.
