how i learned to dance

PROMPT: Micro Memoir

    i don’t know how to dance,
is what i tell everyone who asks.
    i don’t feel the need to know,
is what i say.

but when the music moves through us,
and we’re all happy and in love,
not with oblivion but
with life and what is in front of us––
when foot-tapping turns into
head swaying, and then 
hand-holding to
hip shaking,

we all throw fear out the window
along with the sounds of our laughter
spilling into the...

break away

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

VERSE 1
you speak with so much conviction,
self destruction’s my addiction,
and i let my head
overrule my heart.

here i am, floating about,
letting little victories bring me to
keep on walking,
keep pressing restart.

CHORUS
i can only hope that i
am not wasting life
on edges that will only fray.

and i’ll just entertain the thought
that we are in the midst 
of trying to be something we’re not.

i tend to wait for a new...

women and children first

PROMPT: On Courage

when i was small, 
i was taught to stay small,
but i'm bigger now.
i take up space, and
i can no longer apologize for it.

the men stand, 
solemnly filling their plates
with gratification,
while the women and children
pretend they aren't hungry,

because that's what you do when you are small. 
you pretend that your appetite is as
small and insignificant
as you are.
the children can wait,
and you can too.
because you're
equally small,
and taking...

to no avail;

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

that was me trying,
couldn’t you see?

    that was me making my peace signs
        and grinning, because
            that’s what i have told myself to do,
but that was me trying.

i want to be proud of myself,
    but it’s so much easier to be mad at myself
        for either not being sad enough
            or for being too sad,
                not being strong enough
                    or driving myself mad
because i don’t know when to stop.

this is me trying.
    i’m writing emails...

smooth and polished, blemish-free;

PROMPT: The Unknown

i don't know much about perfection,
and as a perfectionist, i must admit,
i found that difficult to say.

because all my life
i have fought for it,
battled my own self
and given myself scars
in ignorance.

in all honesty,

i don't know if i,
or my circle of love,
or my world of humanity
will ever be enough.

    i don't know if enough
    is synonymous
    with perfection.

i don't know where perfection came from,
or how it reared...

Do Something: Gun Violence in America

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2018

The factors that come into play when discussing gun violence are endless; the Pulse Nightclub shooting was caused by a lack of tolerance towards the LGBTQ+ community, and the root of Sandy Hook was deemed to be mental illness. The reasons proposed for these violent actions fall almost always under the category of a lack of communication, understanding, and/or tolerance. If people were able to communicate their struggles with others, understand the damage some of their actions may create, and...

Fragile Heart

PROMPT: Songwriting Competition 2017

Verse 1:
Can I tell you my story?
Can I tell you everything that I am?
Or is that too much for your fragile heart.

Can I get a little too close?
Maybe I can get away with something;
But then again, might be too much for your fragile heart.

Chorus:
I can see the truth in your eyes, even though you're
Known for tearing peace with your lies.
But baby, at the end of the day, it’s best to...
