Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I am a poet. A social activist. A student. A friend.

Message from Writer

I hope to open eyes with each poem I write. I want to give a part of me through every sentence, word, and syllable.

The Tree.

FREE WRITING

 I'm laying in a bed full of lies.
Strangling me.
Putting me in this awkward position.
  It feels like being slapped in the face.
  Millions of times.
I want to shed a tear but feel too weak.
I am craving the thirst for my own tears.
  Deyhadrated from this depression.
I go underneath the tree by the house I used to grow up in.
  I am hungry for wisdom. 
I yearn for the memories.
The good...

FOREST.

FREE WRITING

Our encounters are not the same.
Spasmodic through the span of time. 
I ask myself if I still know you.
I feel betrayed having you near my proximity.
It feels like a burden has been placed on my back. 
So heavy, that I can't escape.
Feeling like being lost in a forest,
A forest that I can easily get tangled, and trapped by the many vines that are around me
Trying to escape, until I see you.
The elephant in...

PROMPT: [Insert Age]

The hourglass isn't even half empty. 
I feel time is not even important.
It being the sand that passes through the bottom of the glass.
Every grain representing every second of my life. 
Feeling like it is flashing by before my eyes could even comprehend that it is gone. 

Why do I look ahead to what is next?
Am I going crazy?
Maybe it's just apart of life.

Every year on June 24th. 
The very moment I see a sugary...

You look familar. 
You sound unfamilar. 
The way you talk isn't how it used to be.
Who are you?
I look back at our times together
Travling through in somewhat of an imaginary time capsel 
I travel to the time where we first met. 
Oh how innocent we were. 
The past seemed like we were on cloud 9
Our times together felt like a dream. 
Not just any dream, a realistic
 Simplistic 
Optimistic 
Dream.

​The Last Breath's

PROMPT: Collective Voice

"I can't breath"
You said as the men gathered like a pack of wolves
Ready to attack. 
Their arms and strength holding you down like pillars.
Making sure I won't make a move.
Or sound. 
"I can't breath" 
You said again. 
But they threw those three words, like it was something on a piece of paper that was unimportant. 
As they hold you down.
Choking not only your throat
But your last breath that you will make in reality.
