I’m a silhouette seeking colors…

May 31, 2019

If you found yourself in my shoes, you would choose to walk barefootA lot on my plate isn’t actually nutritiousI’m not balanced ‘cos I ain’t die yetYou’d ask how I became this? I’ve learned from my indecision making decisions for me. I’m a cross between strong morals and I have to surviveThese soiled hands can […]

This is a true story, and it all began when the man fell. I was to blame for this, cos it was my deeds. My mistake brought sin, I was to be judged guilty. Death stood smiling, holding the keys. I lost the life in me, But then there was a switch… The son of […]

February 15, 2019

I’ll cry, not because it’s fun But because they need to confirm that I’m alive. I’ll walk, not because I feel crawling sucks But void of growth, who am I? I’ll be off to school Long before I understand what it is. I’ll fall in love against my preferences Just because Cupid is a bully. […]
