It’s just a word, but we give it so much power. It isn’t thrown around lightly.

It is also a feeling. It can somehow tear us apart from the inside out, or it can put us back together.

We need it in our lives and in our hearts. It makes us human.

But lately, I haven’t seen much of it.

This world needs more love. Throw it around like your life depends on it.

In a way, it does.
Yes, I do converse with all the crawling wishes that keep slamming me for never letting them stand and chase the dreams.
Yes, I do converse with all the broken dreams that linger on their shape they thought my deeds would provide.
Yes, I do converse with all the uncovered routes my feet still long to kiss.
Yes, I do converse with all the tough decisions I escaped that considered me gritty enough to not give in.
Yes, I do converse with all the choices I avoided where my soul found solace in.
Yes, I do converse with all the smiles I faked that had the elements of happiness a morsel or two.
Yes, I do converse with all the let go's that I could have stopped, grabbed, hugged and preserved, but I did not.
Yes, I do converse, and it keeps me going and it keeps me growing.

You
touched her,
her dignity
laying lifeless on the ground
staring
at a monster
even the animals
wouldn't look at
now
My heart goes all out for the ones who've been treated with no humanity. You all deserve so much love life has to offer. Don't ever think your world is crushing, instead build your confidence up to face the day again! ;)

For many years I have refused to admit the truth,
Afraid of judgements, my mind constantly running loose.

But I am finally ready.
The truth should be spoken.

I like a girl.
And why was I scared all this time? I like boys and I like girls. Why should that be wrong? Why should I be ashamed? I like everyone and everything, Love should be spread. There isn't enough of it in the world.

He could only give her
       tears and aggression...
Still she couldn't stop loving him
     Because power of Love
           goes beyond our imagination.!

All I prayed to have someone like u
God will hear this I never knew

When I first met you
I felt like I had known you forever
Keeping you close to heart
And losing you never

You keep running from me
But deep inside you already know its true
That I'm crazy for loving you

I tried to tell you how I felt
But things went wrong always
So I had to quiet

I wanna cheer you up
When you will be down
I wanna get close to you
By always being around

I may not be the perfect
But I promise you will never regret
I will be there forever for you
Just wanna tell you that I LOVE YOU

when we tell them.
i will have to be the one to explain
a story so insane.
ill explain it wasn't love at first sight
my heart beating against  
all my might.
i have already known you.
you are a reflection of myself.
how could you know this,
when you've never known her?
you can always recognize your own energy.
you always know
the sound of your own drum.
i was drawn to an energy
the  same as mine.
but opposite all aligned.
an aura without a place in this time.
something about her reminded
me of mine.
something about her reminded
me of the me i left behind.
before life changed
the beat my drum made
at one time.

As a woman of color, I feel terrified for what the next four years will bring. I am still struggling to come to terms with what has occurred and I know that so many others across the world are, as well. If this many people are frightened for what will happen as a result of the election, we cannot possibly be on the right track to “make America great”. It is not right that a country with so many democratic ideals should elect such a xenophobic, racist, sexist, and homophobic president. I cannot express how much I despise him and his views on a multitude of subjects, but as deplorable as he is, this is the decision that our nation has reached. We need to come to terms with this fact, no matter how grim it is, and move on and make the best of our bleak situation. I think that America is still reeling form the shock of this election and we need sometime to heal, but hopefully everything will be okay. Just know that no matter what he says, no one will ever crush our voices, we will stand strong in the face of adversity. Please don’t further Trump’s hateful message, but spread love and kindness because that is what America needs right now. ♥️
I posted this on my Tumblr as well, but I think everyone needs to realize that hating on others is not going to solve our problem, we must all come together and spread love. If you know anyone who is struggling with the results of the election, please take the time out of your day to talk to them, we all could learn to support each other more. I will try to get a more cohesive poem up sometime in the future, but this is just my thoughts immediately following the election.
Not now, darling.
Don't judge me
When you haven't asked
Why I've done such.

Not now, honey.
When you haven't wondered
Why I said so.

I don't know how I messed up
So badly that it seems.
Logically not thinking,
Mind crashing in the darkness.

My mind is affected
By the hate that you propagate.
Yet I do nothing
To stop it.

I share it and say
That awareness is a need.
But in truth, it is my selfishness
That gets in the way.

Spread love. Spread it now.
Try to look at yourself
In a mirror that is no bias.
Ask yourself, "Where could that love be?"

We were all taught to love
When we were but little tots.
But how come now,
It seems as though we learn hate.

The world is dying.
And it is burning.
We are rotting
In the hatred we are spreading.

Help! Help!
Help me now! Help us now!
There is not much time
But idle ones for the ignorant.

Spread the good
Not the bad.
The world won't end
When you don't get upset at something.

Think first before you do it.
Does it make peace?
Does it destroy wars?
Keep in mind that this world is burning.

As we are extinguishing
The mistakes of man
With fellow fire
As we burn all in the pyre.
