Sunflower Swings

I have greatness within me

Its an insane compulsive energy

A whole-body heat boils up inside

Shaking my right reason free

 

I see my veins, but I’m in the dark

So now I let my heart find the spark

My mind ignites with a beating thump

The big bang to my own spiritual start

 

 Compression brings me down to Earth

 I start to question the point of birth

Time and knowledge is defined by logic

As our universe expands far beyond the truth

 

My existence is rooted in seeds of love

 Always in admiration for the Sun above

My perspective streams worry free waves

On this manic swing, my soul lights up

Shrinking Women

 

A fantastic slam poetry performance recorded. It’s awe inspiring to see a young woman absorb the harshness of the world and creatively convey her struggle. I think every woman in the world should watch this video. We all know how it feels to shrink in the company of an ignorant man. No more growing in, it’s time that every woman gains the strength to grow out into the beautiful flower she is meant to become.

 

Keep Climbing.

Among the Stars

More often than not, I hear people belittle themselves. “I can’t”, “I’m so dumb”, “I’m an idiot”, “I could never”, are everyday phrases people throw around.

Sure, some may think the phrases harmless, but I beg to differ. As soon as thoughts become words a trigger in the brain connects to reality. You only live once- why sell yourself short?

Personally, I think everyone has the potential to shine beautifully in their own life. Love is a powerful word, but it has to resonate within before it fully radiates through you.  If you ever feel like you cannot accomplish a task, something inside you should switch on and say “well, that sounds like a challenge”. Avoid playing the safe card, value your gifts and never shut yourself down.

Whether you want to sing for someone other than your shower head, or you want to try eating a vegetarian diet, or you want to take up soccer, or apply to a university- it doesn’t matter. In the end, you can do anything you set your mind to. Sometimes the things that seem so hard to conquer are day-dreams that play out like re-runs in your thoughts. A reoccurring episode with the only conclusion you can be sure of- failure. It’s easy to decide the ending for yourself, it’s harder to live in fear of what could be.

Live every day like it’s your last and shoot for the moon. You’re bound to land among the stars.

Hello World Wide Web!!

This post is a shout-out to my generational peers who will guide our fragile earth into the destined future.

Now, if you have yet to encounter a conversation regarding climate change, ocean extinction, rainforest deforestation, food supply, population growth, etcetera, etcetera, then you, my dear friend, have got your head stuck in a hole.  So, it’s time we all, every single one of us ‘digital kids’, get our heads out of this digital hole and pay our attention to the most important thing in the world. Our one and only environment…

I realize this blog is, indeed, a digital hole, yet I also have come to realize digital endeavors are inevitable, thus imperative to be fully present in today’s world. Our generation, ‘digital kids’, have grown-up alongside the www. We will never know the lives our parents and their parents lived whose time was never defined by numbers on a screen.  With the screens came leisure and ease; from social media platforms to mind-numbing entertainment, our lives have really resulted in a mix of illusion and reality.  It’s not our fault, but it is our responsibility to separate the two. So the first step, be aware of the world around you and not just the things on the screens.

Take it upon yourself, every day, to make the world a better place:

Each individual is a peg in a timeless clock. Let us be the digitally aware generation to make the first universal leap toward a healthy planet.
