FAMILIA

All of my happiness lies within this realm
My family
My friends
Those I once loved
Under the shade I sit and reflect
Feeling this light breeze
I can feel so out of touch at times
As if nothing mattered
The darkness swallows me whole
But I reach out for the light
I see my mother’s smile
Hear my sister’s laugh
Feel my dad’s hug
I reach for my brother’s strong hands
Home isn’t a place
It is people
Whether chosen or given
You four complete me

FORGIVING THE PAST

I used to hate going back
To reminisce and live through moments
That I wanted to selectively incinerate
To make pretend and lock it away
Yet I have come to understand
That despite all of that I felt
All the pain
All the hurt
All the silence
All of it
It shaped me into who I am
But it won’t determine who I will be
So whatever you have in your past
Embrace and let go
To live and to soar

HE PAINTED ME AS HIS MUSE

You look like art, he said
Meant to be admired
Yet misunderstood
An enigma
Abstract and complex
But I can see you, he whispered
Beyond your walls
Thick layers of paint
I see your inner beauty
I see your dreams
Your frustrations
I will even dare to say I see things you don’t see in yourself
And that is why I’m here
