This Is My Calling

Begging for a break

A place to get away from all this

But I’m going to show my face

I’m going to show my insides

The treasures inside aren’t worth hiding

The flesh outside isn’t worth flaunting

I’m going to wait on the heavens

I’m going to pursue my calling

With the fire in my soul that hasn’t been extinguished

My Values

I understand

And if I don’t because I’ve never been there I hear you

I hear your pain

And your reasons

I will take time to think what it must be like

I will because I have to

I have to because that feeling of not being understood

That feeling of being the one no one wants one your team

I know it

I lived it

And I hope to God that I never make someone feel like I felt when I was so alone

And if I have I’m so so sorry

Belief

From now on I will believe in my writing. I will be confident enough to be teachable while also being true to me. It took a lot of work to be able to write that and mean it at the same time. It’s not just an affirmation it’s a statement of who I’ve become. I will continue to reflect on this so I can maintain my belief. But I hope to stay here if not forever for as long as possible.

Please Exist

There is a reason why you’re here

It’s to read this poem and to realize this poem’s existence would cease without you

It would be silent

A dead silence with the night air stuck in a place that never really existed

It would lack the chaos of us

Trees would fall into oblivion

I would fall into oblivion.

Without you,

there’d be no us

there’d be no poetry

You are the poetry

Bare

Sky as bare as a new born

My rebirth causes an itch under my fingernails

If only I could reach it

I’m trying so hard to embrace this body

To push and mold it

But I get so tired

So hungry

And yet that doesn’t stop me

I lift my demons and sweat them outta me

Because there’s no other way

To get where I’m going without persistence
