they see the facade, the academic veneer,
but the truth lies hidden, only i hold it dear

the world believes success is all i chase
but i question if i’m running in the right race
i question what truly this journey is worth
am i just building castles on this shifting earth?

amidst textbooks and deadlines, i quietly yearn
for answers not found in a grade i might earn
will this path i’ve chosen be my true fate?
or will i wake up one day, realizing it’s too late?

so when they call me hardworking and bright,
i smile on the surface, hide my inner fight
for behind the facade, the mask i wear,
lies a soul pleading,
“Lord, hear my prayer.”

The life you see an Believe
Everything has meaning and purpose
Between Divine entity, Gods Grace, or heaven itself
Lies are spread to decieve you
To force a belief system
To blind you from fact and truth
The fact of a bigger reason
The fact of a higher being

I'm living my destiny
I'm here speaking a truth
I'm telling you
Wether skinny or fat
Wether cold or hot
Wether blind or having perfect vision

Fight for what you think is fair
Let these words guide you right from wrong
Them steps forward
Them clocks ticking
All come down to a yes or no

Did you make this or are you not real?

A little story

Trapped in a body trapped in a soul I'm a force field no escape looking out not in facing God Himself neverending visions life an death peering through the looking glass perception deception non stop people have failed I'm stuck in a womb with no voice suddenly a door opens lights creeps in my eyes opened staring at a man finally I'm free take me from this slumber wake me up show me what I've longed for begged to feel sun shining dawning on me here we are looking at God Himself oh Lord bless you everyday I'm thankful thankful to just breathe an touch the breeze I promise I'll make you proud...

I hope someday you see what I see

I pray you will believe what I believe

We're on this together

No matter how long we have

At least we have a chance

To face the hands of time

To turn back the tides

My love keep me close and held dear

So when I'm no longer here

Look west

Say we tried

We will always remember

The day we were all saved

Today we are standing in front of our success,
And continue to be independent and presevere to face the challenges,
Without any doubt,
We are confident that we're going to make our parents proud.

Believing in ourselves would make us do what we love to do,
Because there's always someone willing to support you,
Teachers were our second parents at school,
They always lend a hand for the times that we fall.

On our last day,
We must keep going on our different ways,
As wearing a pair of shoes,
That would bring us to the right path that we choose.

We can do our best
And we will together make a difference,
Now it's time to say goodbye,
Laughters and tears are seen in our eyes.

For every challenge that we face
There's always an opportunity for success,
For today's Graduation
Wishing all of you my heartiest Congratulations!

What if I don't want
to get better? This hunger is the only thing
I feel anymore. You abandoned me,
so I sit on the bathroom
floor. I drown out my tears
with lyrics to songs we used
to scream out the car
window. While others congratulate
the damage this hunger has caused,
I obsess over the numbers that
light up whenever I step on
the scale. This is the only thing
I can control anymore. Since
you left.

Shall this sample punctate the front
Again written in invisible ink
To those with no eyes always on the hunt
For a word, or phrase, that brings the link
Footlights the night, blooms the rose 🌹
Artistic communication inspires a try
Sprinkles petaled paths everywhere it goes
Floramour intoxication within tiny ****** of why.
I love words and wordplay. Congratulations to the diurnal quotidian. (*punctate was deliberate - I had much fun with it, I know I am weird) p.s. Monochrome Dreamer’s “dare I write “ came to my inbox but something different is on the front page. Color me totally confused.

congratulations. you made it through today.
that's something not everyone got a chance to say.
tomorrow, I hope you stop staying silent
just because the words keep getting lost along the way.
but for now, congratulations. you made it through another day.

I’m just trying to eat my french toast and drink my coffee but you keep cutting me off as I’m about to take a sip take a bite asking why I like it with sugar i add a spoonful of creamer and you’re laughing
but not in a loving way
talking about my schoolwork and my plans for the garden
and you skip over the congratulations and mention your ex girlfriend
going on about your ex girlfriend and my face has hardened
i drink my coffee and try not to listen
i eat my french toast and i don’t pay attention
i’m looking at the man with the book eating alone
i’m looking at the waitress wishing she were home
excuse me and i’m up
the bathroom is empty and nobody saw me
the mirror is clean and i am *****
the lights are brighter than i want them to be
and the soap dispenser is empty
