Monday’s Malcontent Musings III- A Path called Self-love(A Play on Poems)

  I’m held down by the pointless things Shallow people, their arrogance screams. We are surrounded by it, this image of perfect, a deceitful manufacture, it’s made with a purpose.

It’s based onContinue reading “Monday’s Malcontent Musings III- A Path called Self-love(A Play on Poems)”

Falling harmoniously inContinue reading “Frosty Forest Floors”

A sister thing.

Sisters..They’re a strange species aren’t they. They just vibe in this togetherness. A defender and a keeper. Old souls and kindred spirits. Maybe best friends, problem solvers, in another life. My big sister and I have leaned on each other through life ALWAYS. We have gotten in trouble together, we have laughed until we’ve criedContinue reading “A sister thing.”
