Letter to BrooWaha hater

By taking off the mask, published on Sep 5, 2010

You think your smart huh?

You think your cleaver?

You think your strong?

Wise?

Mature?

Hate to break it to you

But your the reason I continue to write

If you have haters it means you have power

If you have haters it means you are one step ahead

I have you

And you're my hater

So I thank you for the power

And I apologize, but I wont stop

Because you just gave me a good reason to continue

And I'm sorry that you lack the knowledge in what talent really is

Because if you had a clue

You... (more)

The Dream Bill (Act)

By taking off the mask, published on Sep 3, 2010

Illegal immigrants walk our land; should we however support them? This is the question that one may come across when discussing the Dream Bill. The Dream Bill is a bill that will help illegal immigrant’s obtain the funds they need for community collage from the government. In cause of this bill, American tax money will be then shared with the illegal immigrants which therefore causes the American tax payers to take from what is there’s to help others. However; it really is in our best interest to help these illegal immigrants get into to collage (financially). The Dream... (more)

The Naked Lady

By taking off the mask, published on Sep 2, 2010

While taking a walk,

I saw a woman totally nude standing against a wall.

She had her designer purse covering her between her hips area

and one arm covering her breast.

She was beautiful no doubt.

She just stood there perfectly straight

as if she wanted people to take pictures.

Cars slowed down and peeked

Men especially looked at her body in a desirable way

women covered their children's eyes

or tried getting them to look else where.

Most of the guys tried hiding their stares

but I followed their eyes

caught... (more)

$$$ Money $$$

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 31, 2010

Money today

gone tomorrow

I spend it like water

use it before it comes

count it like sheep

and earn it like spankings

drown in it like quick sand

and eat it like supper

dream about it at night

and feel it at day

work for it like muscles

lose it like sweat

money today

gone tomorrow

Yes You Can

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 29, 2010

I grab my sneakers from my closet and tie them, excited to run. I used to go running with my friend Bri, all the time.

We'd wake up at 5:30 each morning and meet at the park. We'd stretch while exchanging a few words. I remember the first time we went running, I ran a block as fast as I could, to try and impress her, but ended up panting by time I hit the corner. I didn't realize, back then, that it wasn't all about the speed, distance and pace mattered too. Now I know better.

She would always yell at me to go a little further, call me names here and there and... (more)

The Zebra and The Lion - Embracing the capture

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 26, 2010

“You are mine! You belong to me” he said in a strong possessive voice, while shooting his finger and pointing at me and then to himself.

It was all a plan.

He had it figured out. Executed perfectly.

Well, I mean, it had to be perfect because it worked.

Was I the "zebra" and the man the "lion?"

Me, his captured prey?

Or, was I the kitten that's been touched by a human's hands only to be tossed away?

I sat there. Not sure whether to cry or accept finality.

“You will be my wife, if not now later. We are destined. Do you have any idea... (more)

P!nk therapy

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 26, 2010

Depressed? Maybe

Angry? Not sure

Confused? Absolutely

I listen to P!nk as I pace the rooms in this empty house

Nothing and no one around

No noise except the Lyrics of Sober blaring from the computer's speakers

Understanding and feeling every word

I gobble the pie of pizza I just ordered

Trying to clear my head

I eat all alone

I was hoping I'd finish every slice

But my small body can hardly finish two whole slices

I push in another slice

Feeling like I may puke I continue to chew nonetheless

I eat... (more)

Writers Block

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 24, 2010

How is it I have thoughts zooming by

(So much to write)

Like trains that never stop

(So much to say)

Yet I sit by the computer

(Yet my insecurities)

With nothing to type

(Keep me silent)

I seem to have writer's block

A Woman's Love: Boy v Man

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 23, 2010

"You're NOT in a relationship!" He said in a strong voice.

"YES I AM! you're just jealous" I tried

"HA! why would I be jealous? I haven't been jealous of a woman since my mother died in 1972"

I stayed silent. He had to be, had to be jealous. Why was he screaming at me? Why did he have to diss my relationship? And most of all why was he being so harsh with me?

I just sat in the passanger seat of his van feeling tense and angry. I wanted to spend time with him but every conversation we had seemed to dwell on my relationship.

I can understand though, I mean,... (more)

I SAID NO

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 22, 2010

I FEEL STRONG

BECAUSE HE PUT THE ALCOHOL IN MY HAND

AND I DIDN'T DRINK IT

DIDN'T THINK TWICE

JUST SAID NO

I STAYED SOBER

DIDN'T GET STONED

DIDN'T SMOKE

I WATCHED AS THE PEOPLE I CALL FRIENDS

ACTED STUPID

LOST THEIR BALANCE

AND LOOKED LIKE FOOLS

BUT FOR ONCE I WASN'T INVOLVED

DIDN'T GIVE IN

AND WHEN THE AMBULANCE CAME

I EXPLAINED WHAT HAPPENED

HOW HE HIT HIS HEAD

THANKFULLY HE'S ALIVE

AND NOT DEAD

ONE MISTAKE LEADS TO THE NEXT

THAT'S WHY LAST NIGHT I SAID... (more)
