All that you know,
All that you are.
Heal my scars."
"Frantic hairs sprout up in places hair-seeds never belonged—
Lines are carved like wagon trails—
Pioneering through the fragile membranes of
a flesh that should have, somehow, stayed
"I see you now, and I cannot turn back
The music of your voice leading me home
Your safety holds against any attack"
"Daytona you are pink and orange skies at early sunrise
You are beaches covered in white-cap waves
You are a sunburnt tourist who now craves home
You are a spring break party destination
To some, a dream vacation."
"I fell in love with a ghost,
And soon would I discover
That not a single spirit
Could be this kind of lover."
"My first in class speech is about the 2019 coronavirus,
which broke out in Wuhan.
11 million people locked down and
The death toll climbs,
like vines in the jungle. "
"I'm strong because I've once been weak
I'm fearless because I won't accept defeat
The heat scorched me; the pain forged me
Now I've got the heart of a warrior, I'm free."
"For three years and more, I did not blink.
But now I'm awake; was this all just a dream?
And now, I don't know how to feel."
"Honesty is trust. I don’t see it as a flaw
A temper so fierce, I’m kind and then cruel
But this is my shield, my weapon, and my tool."
"It's all about unnecessary fame
Yet people don't feel ashamed
People are doing drugs
When it could damage their lungs
Teenagers listening to wrong advice
And they don't even think twice."
"Did you know that each of our lungs are like a tree?
The only difference is that we roam free
Both trees and lungs exchange air
That is why we must protect them with care."
"Your mind is a maze; I am always left wondering;
But I have heard bad of you through a grape vine."
"She’s pieced together by lies and broken promises,
Hoping one day she will find her true happiness."
"It’s a song you hum when you are mending
needle, string, bloody fingers
try to put your heart together."
