Poetry: Metaphorical Existence

Note that I wrote this poem to reflect on how my trauma manifested.  I am trying to heal from the conditioning of past trauma by recognizing the problem and how I am more then my trauma and PTSD. … The inception of the distorted, forgotten song — howls through my ear-drums, tears my synapses until… Continue reading Poetry: Metaphorical Existence

Important Truths We Must Face

I am a pacifist at heart. However, not all ideologies and opinions are equal and okay to freely express, and sometimes one must take a stand even if it means risking it all to fight against hateful ideologies such as neo-Nazism and white supremacy.

National Poetry Month: A Ghazal: Pain

National Poetry Month: A Return to the Ghazal I originally wrote this poem on April 11, 2017 but debated posting it on my blog. It chronicles a journey I took recently, where it felt like my internal self was being erased by others and my story disregarded or distorted by others. I am still recovering… Continue reading National Poetry Month: A Ghazal: Pain
