throughout life you can never stick to just one.
theres pescetarian, vegetarian, people choose from a ton.
there are so many options but some never help,
so we go through our lives trying to squeeze one more hole through our belt.
we stash all the buttons
thats popped from our trousers,
and drive to the gym
where we’ll spend all our hours.
but if we don’t see a change
in the first two or three days,
we lose all our hope
and resort back to old ways.
it only lasts for so long
before we fall into depression,
because we want to find love
but our bodies leave the impression.
that we can’t take good care
of what we need to the most,
which creates insecurities
we later expose.
and who wants to take us on?
knowing how we’re troublesome.
if we can’t love ourselves,
how else will someone?
dont alter your eating,
just balance your motion.
eat as much as you’ll run,
it’ll cause less commotion.
in your head, in your mind
and what you see in the mirror
is nothing but beauty
you just need to see clearer
i was wrong when i said
to find love you have to look a certain way.
its just looks get them interested,
but your personality makes them stay.

As it says in my tagline: I'm just a writer writing about love because that's what all the cool kids are falling into these days. However, the type of love I write about is based more on the likeliness of modern day heartbreak. I originally started this blog as an outlet for therapy. I believe writing soothes the mind and allows us to express our feelings, which is exactly what I do here -- but in the form of poetry and spoken word pieces. I began writing in 2016 and I like to think the content I put out is relatable and hard-hitting since there's nothing new under the sun. You'll come to find I struggle a lot but without struggles, there is no growth, and believe me, I am growing.
Slowly, I am working towards publishing my own works. Gallimaufry (one of the categories here on my blog) is one of them. I'm also in the process of writing, "war & peace", "where two hearts unify as one", & "i sold my heart to buy yours".
Until then, feel free to linger around and read a few of my pieces; if you like what you see, be sure to hit the follow button at the bottom of my page to keep up with my posts and like & comment as you wish!
Other than that, thank you for reading my About Me page!
I'll be seeing you,
