Perspective

For the longest time I thought I wasn’t worth a dime I thought of you as my greatest mistake Seldom realizing that it was pain blocking my vision for my own sake The harrowing trauma I have been left with adorn me like battle scars All I wanted was to escape the suffering so I…

Domestic Violence

It happened during our daily nightly conversations When my mom asked me about my views regarding a movie This movie being a case in point about domestic violence She brought up the topic with such practiced nonchalance to gauge my reaction, that it made me silently suspicious We exchanged our respective opinions which had such…
