gray kissed tears fill my eyes and the memories of you flood me all at once I can still hear the gentle sound of your voice as the silence echos in the night and I miss you but now the only way to see you is when I close my eyes and let the rain fall down
Piles of Syllables leave this doubtful mouth Some rhymes are just better left unsaid When it battles the test of my contested mind Please let this go Let me go unheard Let These delicate words go smooth as liquid down the drain Like gasoline to the fire filling up my lungs that burns inside my flesh Until there is no more abstraction of thought left for meeting in the public conscious

This one is for those who feel trapped. For those who feel like they don’t have a voice. For those who build and strengthen the walls around their hearts even further due to the betrayal and mistrust they have suffered. But I’m here to tell you personally that although those walls around our hearts are necessary and protective, I’ve also learned that it is certainly possible to let yourself open up those walls in the right context. The person that I have done this collaboration with, was that one person that I found that I can trust. I hid myself for such a long time. I’ve been through the struggle. I know how it feels to feel so alone. But you don’t have to be alone anymore. You can overcome this. You can be heard. You can have a voice. As long as you’re careful, and have the proper awareness and vigilance of knowing who best to let in and trust. While also being wise about who has your best interests at heart from those who do not. It’s dangerous to be vulnerable. That’s why I say to be wise about who to trust, so you don’t put yourself in danger. But I also want you to know that it is possible. There is still goodness left to find in this world. Although it’s not in quantitative abundance, there is still a minority group of us out here in the world that still have love, empathy, and compassion left to give. So if you happen to find that type of person or even a good group of people, then nothing can stop you and them from tearing down those walls and opening yourself up. You don’t have to suffer in the darkness and silence alone anymore. If nobody else cares, then at least WE do.
So I thank you with my whole heart bestie! The lovely and beautiful, thecreativechic. You were the one who finally tore my walls down. ❤️
For all my ladies, all my warriors, and all my queens – this is an ode to you. Yes, YOU!
be confident be strong never bow down don’t be defined by anyone don’t allow your past to determine your path
and when someone tells you all the things “they think” you cannot be, you keep pushing forward and make it known that you cannot be stopped, you WILL NOT be stopped
let others see the fire in your skin and the crown’s power upon your head. You are bathed in sunlight for a reason. You are right here and right now for a reason. We need to be building each other up and seeing the true beauty in ourselves and others
never seek the approval of others, for it’s not needed as you already know your worth
so, all my beautiful ladies, this is for you. I believe in you, I stand with you, and I am part of you
