happy birthday!

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

happy birthday to the 18 y/o who's just a little kid in this big world and who's growing into their person. happy birthday to the 17 y/o who fought against change. happy birthday to the 15 y/o who was busy filling shoes. happy birthday to the 14 y/o who clung on so tight to what she knew. happy birthday to the 13 y/o who felt like a grown lady. happy birthday to the 11 y/o who lived day by day....

from me to you

FREE WRITING

if it isn't selfish for me to say
please be okay
for me
because there are times when
i flounder in this sinking world
wracking my brain to come up
with ways to keep you afloat.

seeing you treat yourself like you're less
makes me wonder if it’s me who’s failed you.
because if there are sociologist out there
who say that it is the failure of society
for not giving someone enough hope
to carry on with their lives, ...

your own fairytale ending

FREE WRITING

spoiler alert: the princess saves herself in this one.

once upon a time, in a land (not so) far away, a little baby girl was born. a little baby princess to be more precise. 
in the days of her youth she roamed the streets at her whim and fancy, never scared to show the villagers that she was a princess that wasn’t afraid of getting a little dirty, being a little more rambunctious but this did not detract from the...

old friends

FREE WRITING

you just can’t make old friends.

the ones who you walk back
home with at the end of a
long day, whose house you
would walk to with your eyes
closed shut. the ones who
have had chats with your
parents, who know your siblings,
who your family asks about
as if they were just another
relative to check up on.
when your pets seemed to
belong to their childhood too
and their disappearance
would leave two holes
instead of...

PROMPT: Solidarity

you're scared. the uncertainty is overwhelming
and there is no clear end in sight.
there's no one pointing a gun to
your head, no swinging ax to your face
but you're scared.
and the news doesn't help -
when people are reduced to numbers,
when lives are written off...
our days end with local updates:
"40 new cases confirmed, 2 dead,
1 recovered" and they start with
global news: shutdown, lock down
and yet the numbers keep rising.

you don't...
