Handwritten

I used to love only handwriting stories in the hundred notebooks that used to take up all the space in my school bag. Now I find it very rare to find myself jotting down ideas with paper and pen. Its all digital now for the sake of convenience. Yet my hand will always crave the cramping of writing for hours on end, in a stream of quick and messy handwriting. Staring at the endless pages being filled to the brim with endless ideas that swarmed my head, wondering how they ever came to fruition. Yes, typing is faster but what’s more satisfying? A digital folder filled with documents being so easy to erase with a single click. Or a bunch of notebooks scrawled with messy yet endless thoughts that takes extra time to destroy. Permanently staining the inside of jumbled notebooks?

Mundane Tasks

I stare at the sink
filled with a dreadful task
I find myself having a hard time
ever completing.

I honestly don’t know
what scares me more at this point.
Damaging the dishes
or disappointing you
for not even being capable
of finishing this simple task
I offered to do in the first place.

Daydreams

This song
Made me believe
That selfless love existed
Between two people
Who are meant to be
Soulmates.
Two friends who
Keep the magic alive
By truly enjoying one anothers
Presence and company.
Fighting through the
Rain soaked days that feel
More like a hurricane
Until you realize how miniscule
The fight meant in the scheme of things
And snuggle up together tightly
To hear the thumping of the each other’s
Hearts to lower them into the comfort
That is our vulnerability towards
One another.

Growth

Mellow yellows
How dare you attempt
To bicker and fight
Over who has grown the tallest
When all that matters
Is the size of your heart
And how well it grabs onto
Hope and wonder of your
Everlasting and purposeful dreams.

The stars would fall to your feet
If you asked them in the right way.

But over time you we learn
And become wonderful at your craft.
Learn at your own pace,
Flourish in the passions you love,
And the rest will come easy
You just have to believe in yourself
And you’ll ride amongst the stars
With ease

Drowning

Everytime i feel
Like i am close to
Being free from
The grasp of financial
Distress i am quickly
Pulled back under
The waters just enough
To feel like im drowning
But free enough to
Occasionally swim up
To catch my breath
Before being forced back
Under the crippling
And overwhelming tides.

War

I bet you feel like you
Are superior to me.
You spread lies and
Cause harm to everyone
You come into contact with.
I may have refrained from our battle
But you are the one who truly lost.
