THE ROARING TWENTIES

What has changed a hundred years from now? Are we not still blinded to the allure of wealth and the fast life? And the boundaries that were broken then, do they not mirror the many boundaries that have been shattered today? Everyone is still chasing to live on the streets paved of gold for to …

THE GREAT RHAPSODY

If it wasn’t for the trouble I keep getting in...I would never have to look back. I would never have understood that there is someone who holds my hand even when I feel the wind. But I do know now that I was meant to feel the air and the sea to know that I …

SWAN SONG

I keep seeing you amidst the faces of strangers,  I hope that this sign of my loneliness will end,  And that I won’t be searching for a pleasure I may never have, It always seems like it’s a roll of a dice,  But I am always the one to lose.  My stare may be hostile …

FALL & RISE

GOD is not chasing for perfection in us but for our imperfection. If that is the case why are we striving so hard for something already in GOD's hands? Weren't we made to all fall and rise with GOD's grace? Was I not meant to soar? I’m not the girl who accepts trauma, but it’s …

GREATEST CRIME

Her music isn’t a dance, it’s not just a song, it’s a feeling I never felt before.   There was only one time that I felt like I could climb without having to fall, But returning to the past is a dangerous venture, in which only my mind is at stake,  And the many blows …

FAMOUS AS THE MOON

FRACTURED

Sometimes it gets all too much, I wonder why GOD could love us, all so blinded to sin, wading in sin. Can someone go so far? Can someone be so depraved? Why is it that in my time of inadequacy I have to be plagued with an inescapable feeling of sadness? I know that this …

DREAM THE ESCAPE

How far we dream is how far we want to escape. The most dangerous game I’ve played is breaking free from the pattern. Because if I’m meant to be smiling now, if I really am following suit, then all this worry is meaningless. But if I’m straying from the finale and instead, building my own …

INFINITE PAIN

Life’s emotions are too great for me. I will never catch up to others, and life will never catch up to me. Two paths that cross yet never stop. My life, is a series of highs and lows, endlessly going so deep that the peak feels greater than it should. Everyone seems to be living …

JEWEL OF LIFE

What is it that delights a mother about the youth of a child? Is it the beauty, the freedom or something else? I don’t know what it is but it makes me happy to think that there is joy and hope when you see your mother smile. I witness her as she returns to her …
