Captivity

Captivity

My voice feels caged.

My thoughts are not my own.

Withdrawn from the world I knew.

Enslaved in a body that is not of me…

says my SOUL

words

words

this time they stayed.

this time they did not fade away as I dried my face

this time I can not forget.

the words you used to strangle me,

are now a part of me

the pained body

the pained body

Every pain I’ve had I’m still holding onto, as if the pain were pleasure.

The familiarity of it must be what feels so good… the one thing that remains constant.

Just as a flower’s life…

       there are relationships that will bloom and there are others that will wither.

Just as the gardener tends her garden…

       there is a time to tend, a time to salvage, and a time to let go.

When you’re struggling within yourself…background blur bottle bright

It’s like being trapped in a tall glass.

You scream, hoping you’ll be heard .

You stand there with your arms up… waiting for someone to pull you out

……but no one comes, you are trapped.

 

Stuck standing there; mouth wide open, arms up, screaming at the top of your lungs “HELP!!!

Just you and yourself.

Now, you’re tired and your energy is gone. You slowly rot.

……because no one came???

But all the while… you, you were there.

5.25#lost&found

When you lose yourself…
When you become unsure of yourself… When you become unsure of the company you keep…

It’s time… it’s time for solitude. Recapture yourself. You have to disconnect from the external noises… and PLUG YOURSELF INTO YOURSELF!!

That means it’s time to step away from the drugs, it’s time to step away from social media… and sometimes that includes family… sometimes that includes friends.

We have to nourish our mind, body, and soul… mind you the saying isn’t just “body”… it’s “MIND, BODY, AND SOUL”…

no one says it’ll be easy because it’s not… especially in our black community. We need better, we deserve better, the change starts from within yourself…

I am tired of seeing us run this cycle where we exclude our mental/emotional well being…
