NaPoWriMo Day 18: Let It Go

Another day is gone

The room is dark, and I’m alone with my thoughts

I dream of the future, of having control,

Of an alternate life

My mother is healthy and happy again,

No longer does she have stressed-induced health problems

Happiness lives here now

No longer do I have to hide in the shadows,

No longer will I hold onto anger and sadness

No more insecurities

No more second-guessing myself

No more people taking advantage of me,

Mocking me,

Causing the worst pain imaginable

I dream of a future where my family is happy,

We’ll be free to go anywhere, anytime

We won’t be sick, or tired, or sad anymore

I pray with all my heart that day will soon come.

NaPoWriMo Day 11: Sister, Sister

I wonder what goes on in that head of yours,

Your dreams, your hopes, your ambitions

You’re such a beautiful girl,

It’s a shame, the choices you’ve made

They will forever follow you, even after death

You’re a cunning thief,

And an even better liar

The things you’ve done are almost unforgivable

I love you, sister,

But I hate the things you’ve done,

This persona of stupidity, the acts of treason

How could you hurt me like this?

I could’ve avoided this frustrating deafness,

These annoyingly weak eyes,

Those painful braces,

Family is not worth anything, sometimes

All they want is to suck every bit of joy,

Create chaos and confusion

You could’ve changed your ways,

I guess you still can,

But How can anyone trust you?

I wish I had Mom’s and Auntie M’s relationship,

To have a sister who loves me for who I am,

And not simply because of our mother

What happened?

Who made you hurt so much,

To have no respect for yourself

Is the saddest thing on Earth

I truly, genuinely hope,

That you find inner peace one day.

NaPoWriMo Day 7: Thank You

To my teachers, peers, and friends, this is for you.


1 2 3,

Started with a tragedy

4 5 6,

Months of stress, finally, finally, soothed by an angel

7 8 9,

And just like that, our tiny shred of happiness is snatched away

10 11 12,

When will this circle of dread, depression, and anger lift?

13 14 15,

This test of faith I must pass,

Or I will surely go mad

this beaten woman I must stand by,

For we have no one else to trust

In this long hour of darkness,

I find comfort in the love and kindness of my teachers, my peers

Thank you for your unending support,

We really need it

If I could hug you all, I would

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

NaPoWriMo Day 2: Easter Sunday

He is risen.

Rejoice and celebrate His homecoming,

His love has triumphed, once again.

Cast out the Devil, at least a few hours,

Finally, finally, peace resides in this house.

Remember the fallen, the defeated, and the weary,

Honor their courage, their kindness, their truth,

As we feast in His name.

Discover my words, my joy, my sadness,

Remember that Love always wins in the end.

Thank you, for all that you’ve done,

Never will you be truly alone.

Birds of A Feather Flock Together

via Daily Prompt: Distant


 

“Donny…are you okay?” Anya’s concerned gaze burned through Donny’s back. He scoffs and turns to look at his older sister. “Of course, I’m okay, Anya. How can you even ask that? Our sister just left us, just like Dad!” His dark brown eyes glare harshly at Anya, who flinches, her bright, brown eyes moving to the floor.
