Unapologetically Black

Hey, Hey, Hey Tomodachi’s!

It feels like it has almost been forever since the last time I wrote anything on my blog. I hope you can forgive me for pulling another one of my disappearing acts on you all. I have missed blogging after not blogging for the past three months.

If you follow my Instagram and other social media pages I recently posted on my Instagram page explaining the reasons for my disappear and how I would be back, out and about on my social media pages and blog. And here I am! With a new poem! Continue reading

My Frozen Heart

Hello Tomodachi’s,

Happy belated International Women’s Day! I hope that all you wonderful women of the world enjoyed your day yesterday. And on a second note, Happy Birthday to my dear older brother, Cornelius. I hope you are healthy and doing well.

Today I will be posting a poem I recently wrote called My Frozen Heart. I have not posted any poetry or any of my writing on my blog for several months because, honestly, I have been lacking in the creativity department for quite some time. Though it has been a while, I hope you enjoy this very simple poem about when a person’s heart turns cold for many reasons and circumstances they more than likely have no control over.

If you have any comments about it please feel free to write me because I would love to hear your commentaries and criticisms, if there is any. Enjoy and until next time! Take care and have a great day!

My Frozen Heart

My heart used to be so warm,

But now it has turned so cold.

It was frozen over by time,

Frozen by this unforgiving, cold world.

Do I regret it?

Maybe I do, Maybe I don’t,

But there is no longer any hurt

So in the end, I guess, maybe I won’t.

Will my heart ever beat again?

Maybe it won’t, maybe it might,

But after looking at my frozen but beautifully protected heart

I cannot help but think inspite of myself, ‘Oh what a beautiful sight…

A poetic kind of day

Konnichiwa Tomodahi’s,

How is everyone doing? I was just thinking about how it has been a while since I last posted anything poetic on my blog. Today feels like a poetic kind of day if you know what I mean. So, I decided to post another poem of mine since it has been quite a while since I last posted one of my own.

Though I have already posted this poem some time back, I made some changes to it and I was wondering if you could spot the difference, if you are even able to find the previous version of this poem, that is.

If you do not care much about spotting the difference between this poem and the previous version then I hope you just enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing and improving on it. I hope you take care and have a great day.

Here is another poem of mine called ‘Try’.

Hello There Folks,

Today I wanted to share another poem I wrote called Try. I can imagine most of you have already experienced hardship and failure but yet you still try, try and try again until you have succeeded.

Experiencing failure or having things go wrong despite how hard you try is a horrible feeling. However, what is most important is continuing to try your hardest even despite all those failures.

Try

No matter how many times life tries to knock me down

I shall stand up and try

No Matter what trials I must face in the future

I shall continue to try

Even if I were to face adversity for things I believe in

I will still TRY

If my hopes and dreams were so easily attainable

Anyone would be able to achieve them

So yes, I shall continue to try

Because life is too short and dreams are too meaningful to just give up  on them half way.

Although it has been quite a while, here is another poem.

Konnichiwa Tomodachi’s,

How are you all? are you melting as much as I am in this heat?! Today is ridiculously HOT!!! I AM PRACTICALLY DYING! I do appreciate the warmer weather and do not want to seem ungrateful especially considering how cold it was in the winter… but DAMN! This sweltering heat is seriously drying me out!

A year older and hopefully a year wiser…

Hello, hello, hello Tomodachi’s!

I know it has been quite a while since I last posted anything on my blog and I am sorry for that, but I just needed some time to myself. A couple of stressful things had been going on in my life that I kind of needed to sort out and come to terms with but life goes on nonetheless.

On this blessed Friday evening, I make 27 years old and as I get older I do hope I also get wiser because no one wants to be around and an old fool… That was a joke… You can laugh now. Lol

Anyway, on this day after not blogging for quite some time, I leave you all with a poem called ‘No Money’ because one way or another we have all been through this (situation). Enjoy!

No money

God only knows

How many times I’ve uttered those words:

“Sorry, I’ve got no money

Sorry, I’ve got no money

Sorry I’ve got no MONEY.”

 

With hands buried deep in my pockets

Forming into fists

I utter these disgraceful words

That chain me down like a prisoner.

Before, I used to fight against these chains

Like a stubborn mule fighting against the pull of its owner

But now I just give in

Because at this moment, there is just no helping it.

 

As someone gleeful comes and asks me

To ‘join them’ in eating, playing or traveling

Before their long winding requests and desires can leave their lips

I can already hear myself uttering those disgraceful words

“Sorry I’ve got no money.”

 

I utter these words not only in shame

But also in pity because of my helplessness:

Sorry I’ve got no money

Sorry I’ve got no money

Sorry I’ve got no money…

 

However, though for now all I can say is: “Sorry I’ve got no money”

I am building myself and working towards that day

Where I can confidently say: “Yes, let’s go. I’ve got money.”
