Reblog – Awakening by Reena Saxena

Here’s to always taking our power back! RAWR

Reena Saxena

A fleeting moment
A glimpse of disapproval
veiled in silence
stayed with me
long after 
you’d forgotten all about it…


Today
I decide to move ahead
shaking you and your views
out of my system


you do not exist for me
as much as
I do not exist for you

Your Weekly Prompt – Identity – July 13, 2020

~*~

I

Am me

No one can be me

It is my unique identity

I was gifted with it when I was born

I will keep this identity till the day I die

In between this time, I can develop, hone and refine it

I can make it better or just exist in what I started with

It can be work in progress or it could be a finished product

It has to be my choice what I want my identity to be

You know me by my identity

I am the only one

That is me!

Reblog – The Girl with the Key by Dorinda Duclos

This piece can take you in many directions, but for me, it resonates that this is a story of a woman who is in control of her life. What does it say to you?

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos


Cloaked in red, she stands in prayer
What lurks behind, she is unaware

Within her hands she holds the key
To unlock this forest’s mystery

But she is the only one to know
Will never let these secrets go

Though another lies in wait
For that perfect moment, unlock the fate

Of all who dwell within these woods
To release the forest’s ghostly goods

At last she senses, this maiden fair
Of who he is, she best beware

As he creeps closer, where she stands
And reaches out his unearthly hands

In hopes he can retrieve this key
Believes it belongs to only he

One more step, he is oh so near
And just like that, she disappears

Never able to uncover the mystery
It is locked away, the key, with she.

Seeking Light

dysfunction, years in the making
substantive love denied
fuckery freely given
innocence betrayed

rough starts
and disastrous endings
inhaling the methane of my own shit
lungs never quite breathing freely

almost at the end
sinking the lowest
gave rise to aspiration
and just like that, there was hope

Summon Your Strength

Redux

I Write Her

Untitled

Mastery – it’s in you.

Don’t you know that? You mustn’t fear it.

Request the presence of greatness.

Open yourself to be filled with it.

Experience the fibers of your neural pathways strengthening, your veins expanding, and your muscles glowing powerfully.

Then,

Breathe in success and

Taste the accomplishment of your own doing.

A god can’t do that for you.

Never has, never will.

Unclasp and do.

Reblog – Fixture by Logan Gorg

Oh, this piece is filled with so much commitment, love, joy, and empowerment. I felt it all with every line. Enjoy!

Faith, Health, and Other Musings

You’ve taken up residence

in my heart

and grow

every day more immovable;

when I peer into the cabinets

and corners

I can’t help but to think

I love what you’ve done with it.

Inspired by Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Dance & Reena’s Exploration Challenge #182


life is a dance
of up and down
and side to side
with the flow or against

we move in varying degrees
executing a series of gradations
achieving defeats and successes
we become in the motion

it certainly isn’t boring
