Boundless

I don’t know how to say this, but I’m tired of the rain dance of heartache beating across my drum. Limitations and rules and timelines of what needs to be done in order to justify that Spring, has sprung. Tell me what the sun knows about limitations. What makes you believe there are barriers, time, walls and lines? You are a limitless. fucking. being. An infinite gust of wind. Why must we torture ourselves with the constructs of a society built on the damnation of the very beings that created it? The genocide of the flow. No more, open windows … Continue reading Boundless

Chapter of Esther from The God’s Graffiti Project

Esther: Maya In middle school I became best-friends with a girl named Maya, And I learned over time That she was just like Esther and Had a shaky start at life, But to the outside world She stayed positive, sweet, and hopeful.

Creating Dreamality

Personally, I’ve always tried to navigate through living in a dream world and actually facing the realities of life. For those who are like me, this struggle is consistent from day to day, through career building, romantic relationships, college classes, house hunting, and everything in between. It’s the balance between true “adulting” and the luxuries of seeing your vision board come to life and making dreams come true. Can it really be 50/50? Are there certain aspects of life that truly omit all elements of dreaming? To solve this would be pure genius, but I believe that people create their … Continue reading Creating Dreamality

Wandering toward destiny – Questions? – Ishmael If you asked me for a life’s synopsis It would begin with the lack of answers to questions Pivotal to forming my character as a man.   Why couldn’t my pops just pay child support?   I had a good grades, I played sports, What father wouldn’t want that?   As far as I am concerned it was just another missed opportunity, Remained in the shadows.   Watching my mom struggle was the worst thing, But it inspired me.
