These blind eyesI'll never hold anything against you...
you can only be the person that you are.
And so damn me for the ignorance-
of seeing a different person back when.
These blind eyes have led me wrong,
and that's no fault of yours.
Center stage.It's like the center of the world,
with all eyes upon you,
It's like an open book,
exposing yourself in it's entirety.
It's where you live, and you learn...
it's where you step outside yourself & become another,
Some see it as their escape hatch,
some feel it is their foundation...
It's the stage,
it's being that character,
it's taking a hard look at yourself,
...you never really were who you thought.
You are who you want to be.
And no matter what,
you are beautiful up there.
my best friendFor my best friend:
When I look at you I see beauty,
I see pain,
I see somebody destined for greatness,
somebody who could change the world.
I see somebody who has changed me,
and shown me that it's okay to rely on someone.
I see somebody that knows what he wants,
and will fight until he receives it.
I see somebody who doesn't always have to make a commitment,
who sometimes just wants to have fun.
I look at you and regain hope,
hope in myself, & hope in the world.
Continue to give hope, and heart,
continue to be yourself and you could be the greatness that I see in you now.
City LightsCity lights brightly shining
through my bedroom window...
I fall asleep to the sound of
horns in the night...the city
that never sleeps.
It's what I've always dreamed of,
Living life in the center of the world...
I can do anything, I can be anybody,
I am me...I am accepted,
I am who I am,
I wake to the sunrise through buildings,
the city embracing me...
It's a new day and I know that
freedom is just beyond my door step,
It is a dream dreamt by many,
but lived by me.
Today I will set out for a new adventure,
build my life, and knowing
that it won't be my last adventure,
there are so many more to come
in this city alone.
I can do anything, be anybody
and I wouldn't give this up for the world.
Teenage TaoismGiving birth is the closest I’d ever felt to dying.
Before that, my near death experiences had consisted only of my silent announcement of pregnancy—silent, being that my social media accounts were all deleted almost simultaneously and I never returned to school in the fall, saying without really saying that I had caught the malicious disease of “teenage pregnancy”. I’m sure the whisper spread in the hallways like the Bubonic Plague. That September, sitting at home on what would have been the first day of my senior year, I imagined friends I’d never talk to again saying “she was only seventeen, and so full of life!” at my absence in the cafeteria tables, as if they were attending my funeral instead of talking about me behind my back.
"Full of life," I had snorted then, folding a never ending stream of what had once been my own baby clothes. "Literally."
I walked around like a zombie for the months of my pregnancy, deciding t
