People Be Like

 Men be like, “I don’t need a woman.” Women be like, “I don’t need a man.” At what point in life do we realize that we need each other? There exists a oneness that is inescapable. We all share this space on Mother Earth. We share similar structures and emotions. We have the same bodies: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. We are all expressions of one God.

Zera Continue reading The Epitome of Strength

Something about the devout repetition spoke more to him than knobby knees on old tiled floors and shaking fingertips. I remember fatigue creeping into my innocent eyes as the priest repeated the prayer of our father in languages that were lost to me. My mind would wander from past, to present, to future, with the distant echo of his voice reverberating off the hollows of my veins. Despite the shoving of religion into all of my orifices, and my purity … Continue reading Alyshia Gonzalez – Summer 16′ Poetry Contest
