Writing is a cathartic process in which I find my voice in different facets of each poem. Poetry, is a unique discourse of reflections


Life is a journey filled with

Long pauses

Quiet retrospection

Distant thoughts form and

Give birth to ideas

Infrequent in their completion

Yet never giving up hope

To see them accomplished

That beyond the horizon

Where dreams fertilize curiosity

Making this trek surreal

Real, certainty is

Life’s voyage my feet

Itch to keep moving

Standing still, stagnant

Bitter roots grow and embed

Themselves into your soul

Do you let the

Odyssey end inside of you

Excepting the pilgrimage

To be futile

Striving, to struggle

Is hard enough without

Negative vibes poisoning

Positive vibrations

To move forward

Journeying to next plateau

I motivate myself with love

I've won in this

Life’s odyssey
