A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE

mommaA world without your love is the world I find myself dwelling in. The lights were turned off when you closed your eyes forever.  Alone here in the darkness I wait for you in my dreams. In anticipation seeing your beautiful face. Longing to hear your soft voice whisper those beautiful three words “I Love You”. I live in this world cold cruel and dead without your kind touch, without your encouragement. I don’t want to stay in this world without you anymore.  I want to be where you are, dancing in your light.  I want to stay in this light embraced in your loving arms within your unconditional love only a mother can give.

Wanting and getting are two different things in our household.  I always ended up getting corn beef, cabbage, cornbread and Carmel cake.  My mother knew I’m not a fan of corn beef and cabbage.  I use to get so angry with her but now I wish I could have that dinner one more time with her smile.  My mother who bravery is unmatched. Who had the courage to stand tall in a world that try to make her small. She’s one of a kind.

Be Kind!

PRETTY

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and yet as I stand here looking at the mess in the mirror I beg to differ.  I’m not a beauty nor do I feel pretty.  What I see is quite the opposite.  I see ugly, useless, dirty person with no future.  I wish I can be pretty, as pretty as the actress that grace the silver screen.  I wish I can be pretty, as pretty as those models who are splashed on the cover of sports magazines.  I wish I can be pretty, as pretty as the girl sitting across from me on the bus.  I wish I had better eyes to see what you see a beautiful girl.

GREEN

Green is the color of envy or so they say.  I wear green every day.  Ask me if I’m green with envy and I would say HELL YES.  I’m green with envy trying to pick the winning lotto numbers I can’t seem to buy.  I’m green with envy at a job that don’t I’m alive.  Sitting at a desk day in and day out mindless nothing not even messing about.  Working for a wage that barely covers the rent.  Living here in this expensive hell you’re better off spending you pennies on a tent.  It’s the uber driver who takes you on a ride to voodoo land.  Either stopping a few feet ahead taking the next fare behind you or driving the most indirect routes you sitting in the back watching the money run out.
