Help Me Trust: A Poem

Help Me Trust: A Poem

I fall Lost and alone Searching for my home Drifting further away From the noise everyday I see Light shining down But blocked by the sound Hidden from the heart And present from the start I know Watching over me Still drifting at sea Unsure of what to do Unsure of how to move I cry Darkness closing in Wrapped up in the sin Treading to fall Too heavy to crawl I pray Please help me escape This prison when…

Bad Day

Bad Day

It’s been a long time my friend. I am completely disoriented by your presence. I have no idea how or why you showed up tonight but undesired memories of us continued to consume my brain. I didn’t ever wish to see you again. But you tend to show up uninvited at the most inconvenient times. Maybe it was the pills that lured you back; or maybe the foreign setting triggered your attention. Though besides the “why” you decided to come visit tonight; I…

As I rounded the last turn, I could see the people that I have lost cheering from the sidelines. My body was filled with…

I’ve noticed before that my philosophy teacher was incredibly passionate about the subject from the way his voice fluctuated with excitement and his face lit up when students showed interest and asked questions. So,…

Starlight Remixes by Jai Wolf

For some reason, I sometimes feel like it’s just me against the world. Like people don’t understand me or my thoughts or my ambitions or my dreams. And after a lot of reflection, I’ve realized that they don’t. I mean, in reality no one does. People can only understand you through their own perceptions and experiences in life. No one knows you better than yourself. No one can see into your mind. No one can truly understand your weaknesses, strengths,…

Are We All Being Misunderstood?

Are We All Being Misunderstood?

Misunderstand. How funny of a word. I think it’s ironic how misunderstood the word “misunderstand” is. The definition of misunderstand is to, “fail to interpret or understand (something) correctly.” So when we misunderstand something, we fail to grasp it completely. I like to think about the word “misunderstand” in the context of how people view one another. The truth is that we can’t understand someone’s inner self. There is a balance that can be reached, but all too often we like…
