PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

Dripping 
The tears steam down my face
Silently in pain
No one understands 
No one cares 
No one hears my voice
Even if it is the voice that knows best
That should be amplified the loudest 

Everyone believes the other ideas, 
The wrong ideas
No one hears the facts 
From those who know

Judgement rings in my ears
I can’t tell everyone 
Because no one will accept me
I’ve always been different 
I’ve always been judged by those looking at...

So close, yet so far
The whispering wind
Means nothing to the universe
The endless darkness
Lighten by stars

The Ties

FREE WRITING

The ties
That surround us
As a species 
In this tiny universe
Can only be broken 
By love

but

The ties 
That surround us
As a gender
As half the population
On this itty bitty earth
Can only be broken 
By strength

Your True Colors

FREE WRITING

It sweeps over us all


Your face is washed clean 
And pure 
Free of the mask that keeps it 
Hidden 

Your smile 
Is brighter 
When it is not
Red

Your eyes 
Shine more than when
They are caked 
With silver and gold

Stay this way for me 
Stay this way for all of us
And be the first 
To show us 
Your true colors.
