Anything But Normal (A piece on mental health)

FREE WRITING

No more than twelve, a girl with perfect grades
Popular, Pretty, Perfect, the three P’s
She sits with her friends smiling ear to ear
But everything they say is hard to hear
She’s worried, worried that they don’t like her
Her brain creates these thoughts that aren’t there
They ask are you okay? It’s fine, she responds
Her anxiety makes it hard to bond
She won’t say the truth, ya know? Because anxiety is not to be said

Our Mother, Our Earth

FREE WRITING

It is dying, that is our mum
There will be no sum
Her colors from dull to vibrant
As we act like a tyrant
Alone and fading she will die
We are doing this, we are the bad guy
She, the Earth, we use pollution
There is no solution
The future generations, children’s frustration
We are the adults in the situation
Leaders acting childish they do
There is nothing to cling to
You continue to ignore
Climate we are fighting...

Home Is Where She Is

FREE WRITING

Once together,
Now so far I can’t hear
Her voice echoes in the walls of my head
But I know it isn’t the same.

Deep conversations till one passes out
Laughing till three in the morning
The cries she gave sent a trickling tear
Her hair of honey
Her optimistic personality
Her brightening smile
Her everything.

When I drive to my house it feels wrong
This was no longer my home.
When she left, so did the feeling of homeliness ...
