Dear anxiety

FREE WRITING

Dear anxiety, 
    I hate you. I really do. You have filled my life with uncertainty and terror ever since I was four. I have a hard time even remembering a time without you. I wish you would go away, but is that to much to hope for? You have been my constant companion, my almost-friend when I self isolate so nobody sees inside my head. You comfort me and terrify me all at once and you come back for more...

"not all men" again

FREE WRITING

Today I was doing a project for my social studies class. This project was about the reliability of photos taken from the civil  war. Here is an excerpt from my conclusion: 
In coming across and studying this information, photos from the civil war can not be considered fully accurate or completely historically correct. Many photographers have used different methods to make their photographs more exiting, so we can’t trust all of the photos to be correct because it is to...

this land is your land (edit)

FREE WRITING

this land is your land
but is it my land
you fight for your rights
but i am stranded
you ignore my calls
my pleas for justice
and i wonder
was this land truly made for me
we march with our family
we wave our pride flags
but in twelve countries
we would be stoned to death
its not a choice
it never has been
this land is a sliver of what it's meant to be
i'd love to walk...

childhood

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

i. a musty, fading carpet becomes a vast ocean
in one moment it is calm and undisturbed
and the next it is rearing and bucking like a frightened horse
winds screeching your name as you are thrown into a briny tempest
so unforgiving that the bravest sailors tremble at its name
and a torn-up cardboard box
the sides a scribbled masterpiece
becomes your constant and only companion among the harsh waves
bottles float upon the waves of wool and dust balls

long enough

FREE WRITING

we have been called mentally ill for long enough
we have been kicked out of the house for long enough
we have been refused medical care for long enough
we have been told how far the world has come in accepting us,
when the world is nowhere near where it should be
we have been outlawed for long enough
our flags have been burned for long enough
we have been abused for long enough
we have been put behind bars...
