C-Day

C-Day

12/25/2016 

It’s here. The day for which I thought I was prepared.

Now that I’m living in this moment, I’m kind of hoping the end is near.

Ok I bought some gifts and baked a cake; even wore my brand-new Santa hat.

I made up an e-card and sent out some texts, must I really give more effort than that?

Maybe if the weather was a little bit cooler, then I may get more into the spirit,

Look, I know I live on a tropical island but eighty degrees in December is a bit ridic.

Too much family time, too many hugs. I’ll suck it up, but this food better be worth it.

I long to be locked away in silence, with a bottle of Jack Honey. Now that, is my idea be perfect.

Maybe next year I’ll be able to hide my Grinch side a little bit better. Make a mental effort to get closer to the norm.

Who am I kidding? Next year I hope to be on a December vacay, where no one can judge my tequila breakfast on Christmas morn.

The purpose

July 4th 2016

 

To be seen and don’t heard, needlepoint and sewing, scarf knitting and other crap girls should do,

Bouncy hair with bows, a freshly powdered nose and the most adorable giggle on cue.

Cooking and cleaning are an absolute must! Don’t even bother to meet the parents if you can’t.

He says that you’re perfect, tells his mom you’re totally worth it, meanwhile this heifer doesn’t like you before you even shake hands.

Sex on demand! Don’t even bother to Netflix and chill. Don’t you know that pleasing man is one of your main purposes in life?

Equal rights? Lol, I don’t think so. To the maternity ward you will go. But on your way, make sure you become a wife.

Don’t bother striving for your dream career or waiting for Prince Charming, in the real world, this journey is hard and long.

The old timers want you to settle down, that’s the easy way out.

I’ll keep pushing until I prove them wrong.

No disrespect to young mothers and wives. If you like it, then I love it! Just saying, that it’s not for me.

Don’t try to dictate my purpose, I’ll figure it out! But what I’m not is who you want me to be.

Blogging 101 Assignment #3

As i previously mentioned, my blog is geared more towards the mature young adult crowd so that would be the main group of persons to whom I would like to exhibit my blog. However, I am certainly not prejudice towards any other age groups. Come one, come all 😊 lol.

To those of you who have already been exploring my posts, you will know that poetry is nothing new to my site. However, I’ve never added any visuals to my poems so i think i’ll nake that my ‘new’ element. Please see a VERY brief poem below.

Day Dreaming

I sleep with my eyes open, dreaming of what’s out there.

Hoping for a day I can do what I truly want without a care.

If it were up to me I’d quit my job and focus on being the female Hemmingway of modern times,

Though some of my peers can only commit to makeup tutorials and Instagram modelling online 😒.

I’ll admit that I have a lot of hobbies: cooking, writing, sketching, photography just to name a few.

In my head I’m a master of them all and I’ll keep doing what I love. Dream on, dream until your dreams come true.

(Btw, the pic is not edited, just my real life view 😁).

Glass Half Empty

Writing 101 – Assignment # 17

A glass half empty is all I see while you see yours as half full,

I’m drowning in despair while you’re on cloud nine so whatever you’re smoking please give me a pull.

A glass half empty is all you have left when you give more of yourself than you receive,

Too high expectations you had for these humans, leaving more disappointments than your mind could conceive.

In my glass half empty I’ll never get that promotion regardless if I have the work skills that my boss admires,

“She’s young, she can wait” is what I hear them say. It’ll be another 10 years before one of these old farts retire!

A glass that is half empty is what I sip on late at night when my perpetual single status has me feeling alone,

I swear I must be a magnet for losers, if Cupid’s out of arrows at least throw me a bone.

As I stare down into my glass half empty, I’m envious of the happiness I see,

Then realizing that the person with the glass half full is actually my reflection staring up at me.

It’s better to change one’s mindset than change one’s cirrcumstances

Writing 101 Assignment #16

Randomly going through my old high school files, I discovered a detailed report of my SAT scores. Not only was it my scores, but I discovered a copy of my original essay I wrote in the ‘Writing’ portion of the exam. It was scanned in my original handwriting and I was simply shocked that I never realized I had this. Of course being curious about the writing skills of my younger self, I decided to have a read. Almost ten years later, my mind set is almost exactly the same; of course I’m a bit more refined now lol. I’ve decided to use the topic from my SAT essay to write a quick poem.

It is better to change one’s attitude than change one’s circumstances:

You can’t determine the hand you will be dealt or see you future in a crystal ball,

Sometimes life comes at you so fast, there’s no time for preparation at all.

Certain people are born into crummy situations while other people encounter these challenges over time,

It doesn’t matter how these changes affect your social status or finances but more so mentally, how it affects your mind.

God helps those who helps themselves so it’s important to at least try to do your best and stay hyped,

But when your best doesn’t work, smile through the tears, your blessing is on its way down the pipe.
