Seeking Someone

A notice
On behalf of the world:
Seeking someone
Who listens.
Who does nothing but take in
Who does not have the capacity to judge, stereotype, or talk away
Seeking someone
Who hears.
Who not only listens to the words
But hears them.
Hears how the person says them
Hears the way they float into the space between them
Hears why they appear.

Je vais être là-bas - my french poem!

Quand tu as peut
Quand tu caches au dessous tes couvertures
Quand tu pleures y tu hurles
Je vais être là-bas.
Quand tu es content
Quand un sourire éclaire ton visage
Quand tu cours y tu ris y tu danses
Je vais être là-bas.
Quand ton monde a beaucoup d' obscurité
Je vais guider tu dans la lumière du soleil.
Quand tes yeux remplissent avec les larmes
Ils vont tomber sur mon épaule.
Quand tu penses que tu requiers une accolade
Mes bras vont être ouverts déjà
Et 
Je vais être là-bas.

Lost

I've somehow become prone to losing things
Over the past year, I can't even count how many
My cross, my ring, my bracelet, my planner, my notebook, and me
I'm digging deep, clawing really
Desperately trying to understand
Who I am 
Who I want to be.
Is there some force snatching my things, hoarding them somewhere
Leering as it dangles them tanatlizingly out of my reach?
When things (or people) dissapear, how long do you spend looking for them
Before searching for someone (or something) to fill the gaping hole?
Who decides
Who takes the innocent
Roughly by the hand, dragging them away
From the people who need them
What are they supposed to do?
The ones left confused
bemused
and melting
eyes never wavering
staying at the spot
long after the person has left.

And So I Shall

I am told
that youth have the power to change the world
That our voices must be heard
That we must be the difference
That I must be the change I wish to see in the world
And so I shall.
I am told
To be quiet
To not show people up, challenge them
To not embarass them with my opinions or corrections
That I'm younger, they've lived longer
They know more
And I should know that
And respect it.
And so I shall.
I am told
To follow my heart
To not let stress blind me
To the many wonders of this world
Darling, they say, take a breath
You don't have to be perfect
Close your eyes and open your hands
Let the simple joys fill them
Like pouring water. 
And so I shall.
I am told 
To follow my heart
But see, this school would really help your chances at college
And I think this activity is really you

Inferior

Do you ever feel inferior?
Like a man in a footrace, sprinting as fast as his legs can carry him
While others jog leisurely, meeting the finish line hours before him.
When you make mistakes
And mistakes
And mistakes
(sometimes the same ones again)
When the ocean pushes you down
And no matter how hard you swim
You're no match for the tide.
And you're just not enough
Nothing you do seems to be
You feel so very
Inferior
Left behind
Step back, eyes down
Inferior
Helplessly hoping
 that you can one day
be
enough.

For Saturdays

For Saturdays
When time moves slow and fast
When the sun smiles down 
When days are wasted and yet perfect
For Saturdays
In blankets and slippers and tea
In books and drawings and hugs
In sitting and thinking
For Saturdays
I write this.

The Rain Falls


Looking up at the sky.
down at the ground.
up at the sky
up and down, up and down, up and down again 
and the rain falls.
today I thought I knew what was good, what was real.
i was excited and positive 
until I was alone 
surrounded by people
shuffling feet and overthinking and not talking 
and the rain falls
imagine if it never stopped - 
the rain, I mean
drowning the earth, or giving it a bath
pelting the road, or softly brushing the pavement
juxtaposion and contrast
but that's life
good and bad, but some days all I can see is one
like when I feel like nobody likes me, and I just want to curl up and cry
and when I feel liked and fun and full of bubbles
and just want to dance and smile
either way, the rain falls
