The Way I See It

Even though I don’t always speak
I write the words spoken from my heart
I follow my faintest dreams and always finish what I start
Procrastination is foreign to me it never held any weight
I’m the first to arrive to do my work and the one who’s still working after 8
I give my all those closest to me will tell
I walk my truth in a heavenly sense even though I’m walking in the mist of hell
To go back..never, to that I say never again
For I have seen my misfortunes and have become too determined
To settle for less or settle for the most great
That is a line I must define
So do not judge me based on my shell
My heart speaks a thousand words in a day sorry if you can’t tell
I may not speak but I do write words from my heart
I keep my word and always finish what I start
Blessed be my name even in my moments of shame
Nothing I have done I regret
I live my life for the better in me
I have not become perfect….yet!

The Human Response

Living a life in an environment that’s not safe
Feeling preyed upon and never safe
Eyes are watching and hands are touching
Feeling low to the ground and much of nothing
Stay away from windows and lock all the doors
Wanting to escape and not just for me anymore
When did this become standard if at all any sense
Will I live today or die tomorrow is always the suspense
The only courage is to be a coward
Scared to face the world in the name of sorrow
Those whom died, those who tried
To live and make it to another tomorrow
So you can stand there and say ” go face your fears and hold back your tears and look life straight in the eye”
I say to you with all sincerity that part of me has died
