Each of you blazes a path of resistance in your own way
And it is the sparkle in your eyes, seeking new adventure each day
The sweet tones of your voices
Your calming embraces
The holy sound of your names
It is you that keeps me breathing 
______________________________

This is an excerpt from a poem I wrote called 13. This is the first poem I wrote with the intention of sharing orally; through spoken word. I hope it will happen one day, but for now, here's a piece... of it, of me, of my life source: my sisters. Although they couldn't all be pictured here, they're all part of the poem and the energy that moves my pen.

i think maybe the closest thing to attraction that I've ever felt is curiosity
im just so curious about the way your voice awoke my soul and if you believe we are a possibility 
Does it cross your mind?
im just curious because my stream of conscious is like the wind and your name is written in leaves, fluttering about, resting until a gust lifts you back up and then
im curious again

its always about the people
a place could have nothing else for you, but if you find your people there
then you can survive
and sometimes you might even be able to forget where you are 
because it's always the people in the end

if you stopped counting the days but instead counted the breaths would you realize you're breathing...barely, breathing

her voice awoke me
filling my veins
rinsing the numbness
her voice
when it leaves her mouth the movement is holy
i dont think ive ever met her
but my heart, oh my heart
it could have fooled me
now this, this is the holy part 
her highness, a goddess
who else can touch your soul
but a holy being with a voice that is beyond gods, men, nations, words, 
and me

Sometimes people get you. They're the people that create space for you to be yourself, and that can be so refreshing.

My roommates. My family. My best friends. I will never forget the day we made your love official, and I'm not talking FBO. I got my shit ordained for this 😎

Somehow I have yet to post many pictures from this day. I had the honor of marrying my baby sister @chelle_beagley and her best friend @frooper12 
I'm so proud of the woman you are becoming. And so thankful I got to share this day with you. 💕

My favorite shots are the ones that I can't bring myself to edit, because they're perfect. And my favorite friends are the ones that let me be myself, that make me feel like I'm perfect the way that I am. These friends are hard to come by. I've somehow been blessed with this one. Thank you for being you and letting me be me, unfiltered.

You forced me to say the words 
But were surprised when you found out
That I didn't mean them

We are always told to avoid cracks in the sidewalks 
Maybe they remind us too much of our broken hearts
But I saw a crack in the sidewalk today
and there was a weed growing out of it
Not just any weed, but a beautiful weed
I guess what I'm trying to say is
Maybe we should pay attention to the cracks
If we fill their void with warm, spontaneous laughter
Maybe out of the damp darkness a weed will grow, and maybe it will turn into a Daisy 
And then maybe we will forget that there was a crack there to begin with

You tried to subdue my flame
And you succeeded
Your poisonous intentions crept into every inch of my stunned body 
You fed and you fed
My soul was corrupted; beaten down and molded to your liking
Then when neither of us could stand what was left
You closed your eyes
But mine were wide open
I saw a chance and I took it
to be free and to be better
To be me and to love me
Forever
______________________________

2017 is my year of self-love; the year that I take pride in the strength that I have, even after this world and many people in it have tried to break me down. I am an open book; my arms are always wide open and my heart is freely given. This is how it came to be that people found it within their ability to manipulate and use me. 
Many of you ask why most of the poetry that I write is dark, and I don't know if I have an answer. I do think that wading through the dark is necessary to reach the other side. Naming my struggle, exposing my thoughts and my feelings, it all helps me see clearer so that I may take the next step. I love and I breathe and I write because I know that I am the only one that can save myself. I love and love and love because that is the way that I am made, and it is the only thing that I know to be true in this world. No one can take that truth from me ever again.
