The Jamrock Cotton Tree.

Grandma used to warn me about the cotton tree. It’s where spirits go when they don’t want to sleep. They linger for years waiting for the next, hoping it’s a family member that won’t get them upset. Night time I would be afraid because there is a cotton tree in our backyard with the roots…

Poetry: Numb 😶

No emotions. No pain. No feeling of loss. No feeling of gain. It’s like I’m just here living, without no aim. No love for you, Don’t worry about me. You said I act like I don’t care, and I do agree. “What’s on your mind?” Truly, I don’t know. “How are you feeling?” My feelings…

Poetry: “Selfish”

She had a broken mind and a broken soul, She wanted to heal but didn’t know how. She needed to breathe and innovate her soul, but her selfish demon wouldn’t allow. Jumping from relationship to relationship was all she knows. She saw him and wanted him, although she had so much baggage, She didn’t care…

Dear Mommy. Happy Mother’s Day.

Poem: “What was the reason?”

I saw that man last night, He kissed his little girl while saying goodbye. Was it goodbye forever? No. But he didn’t know that, He only wanted to go to the store and buy food for his baby girl and wife, who were at home. He felt chilly, although the time was hot. He felt…

I still have hope.

It felt like a dark cloud was over my head for a few days. I wasn’t doing my normal routine. I stopped engaging with my blogging community. I was hardly eating and I was constantly feeling fatigue. My thoughts were all over the place, I was slowly losing myself. I would sit in the corner…

Poem: “I spoke with a woman Lastnight”

I was at the bus stop last night, I turned around and saw an elderly lady sitting, smiling, She said, “Come here young one.” I could see the pain in her eyes, With regret filling them as she continues with her life. She started to speak without hesitation, She said, “I regret it, I regret…
