A Day in Downtown, Kingston🌼

I didn’t want to be at home, I just wanted to leave. Told my mom I was going downtown and I asked her if she wanted anything to eat. Jumped on a bus with earphones in my ears, A man came on the bus preaching that judgment day was near. I finally reach, but I…

Clique.

Broken hearts, Broken circles, Once we were friends, now we don’t sit at the same table. Tension rise, Emotions are unstable, Broken trust, these relationships can’t be rekindled. Secretly missing, Publicly cursing, Generation to generation, a curse that can’t be broken. Whose fault is it? Surely not mines, Here we go again, another argument you…

My boyfriend Wray 💧

I promised my mother I would stay away from him, The withdrawal symptoms started, The sweating and the trembling. I needed him, he was my escape.

I hardly get any water,but people don’t see that.They judge me from my roots to head,speaking how I looked withered. When I asked them to passed me a cup water, they came up with excuses,I was dying, needed assistance,scarred with bruises. But I was determing,I needed to survive,I arched my head towards the sun,I needed…

Dysfunctional Family: “I want Mommy”.

Mommy, you remember when you used to love me? Cared for me? Prayed that I came home to safety, What happened? When I come home from school, you don’t even look at me…. You just drink from your bottle and start acting crazy. You make yourself feel better by disrespecting me.. Calling me names, saying…
