It is True

A bird sat by my window this morning,
Singing "It is true, It is true"

It is true.
We gather innocent grass and trees
And make a fire to warm our neighbors.
A fire to feed their hungry bellies.

The grass burns,
The trees die,
The earthen pot cracks,
The children's broth spills,

"It is true
It is true"
We do more harm than good
We kill the things we were trying to save in the first place

All i write these days is disjointed poetry! :)
This was inspired by Teju Cole's response to KONY 2012. While i do not agree with everything, I am in love with the man's mind!

One Ordinary Day

One ordinary day
Late for work again
Ran out with my shirt inside out
Stepped in puddles the rain had left behind
Made it to work ten minutes after the boss

One ordinary day
Forgot to put on makeup
Scared away the first ten customers
They must have alerted the others
For very few came my way again

One ordinary day
You walked into my life
Dripping heaven's tears
Shivering like warmth left you behind

One ordinary day
Dancing in the rain
Kissing back warmth into each other's cold lips
Giggling as we fall into puddles
My yellow rain-boots, your coffee colored umbrella

Just another ordinary day

We take too many things for granted...the rain, the cherry blossoms that herald spring, the fact that it is 75F in VA today (it is bloody March for pete's sake), the amazing people in our lives, ourselves, GOD...


Song of the day: Jason Mraz - I won't give up.

Moths and Flames

I wake to find a moth circling
It grazes my face and leaves behind  its dust
My mother used to say flames drew moths
Is that what i have become, Mama?
A fire without twigs
A fire unaided by lighter fluid
A fire fueled by tears

Sleep finds me a second time
The moth circles as my eyes close
I am all out of tears
And the fire is almost out

Pretty little moth 
Fly fly away
Before the tears return
And the flames burn anew
You might not survive the next inferno

Song of the day: Dido- Who makes you feel

Twins and other cravings

Spring Break is almost over. It swept by in such a  hurry; rather like life. 

Today i caught myself thinking about the past and reliving unhappy memories. I wish there was an eraser that was available to everyone; one that would wipe out those kind of memories. Alzheimer is to heavy duty. I want something that lets me chose what to remember.

I want to have twins. I do not even have a husband but every time i pray, i ask God for twins. I am definitely the definition of faith. There is a Marshall's 7 mins away from me. I go there to ogle designer baby wear. Sigh...soon,  Kiah, soon. All potential handsome baby daddies with twins in their family line, i am accepting applications! Lest i forget, please be smart too. I need them twins to have great genes.

School sucks and i am weary already. I can't wait to be done and have those babies and make money. The boyfriend says i need to find nicer vocabulary for 'making money'. He says i sound cold when i say i want to make money. I need to sound nice when it comes to making money??? God help me and this man!

The writer's competition is still on and i am even wearier of that. Please VOTE weekly for your darling Kiah so she can at least win $500 and go on a Soma shopping spree. 

May March bring you joy in triples... Be happy.
