I make poems. Read them if you'd like.
Lemons and Limes
I don't favour lemons over limesBoth give me a sour aftertasteEven if I'd rather drink lemonade Both taste similar either wayOne is green, one is yellowYet appear exactly the sameBut standing away from the crowdI find another, just preferring one over the other Miraculously, we agree that they're not exactly like eachotherWe're friends of different tasteLike lemons and limes©anngeli
"What 'Just is' isn't always Justice."-Amanda Gorman, January 20th, 2021
Brownies and Bacon
Bacon and BrowniesChocolate and greaseSavory and sweetFavory and-AfflictionThe way today the brownies were slicedThe way today the bacon was cookedI taste salty and bitter from the tips of fingersFor whoever created this tradegyHad drained a program of strict strategyAnd let their worries, concerns, malaciesTrickle into beloved sugar and spiceEnsuring the atmosphere has lost Anything nice ©anngeli
Stay, and sit
Someday our past will blend indistinguishablyWith the present months of 'quarantine'There'll be no way to leave this rough pathIn which a glacier has carved our futureWe can't stop growing and waitingfor normal to come backIt's gone, it's deadThe bus wont ever arrive to your benchIt's out of order, my friend...©anngeli
In this world, money bends rulesMoney makes people blindBut it does not change moralityThey know what shouldve been doneThey know that they did wrongWhich makes money finally mortalSitting below our greedIs a volcano waiting to erruptHumanity waiting to objectOur morality untouched by greenIt only works so long against The calus of a beating heart©anngeli
My art teacher told me this once, and I dont know where it came from.
"There are no mistakes in art.Just oppurtunities for creativity. There's more beauty in the improvised amd unexcpected."-Uknown
If a trees falls in a forest and nobody is around to hear, does it still make noise?
Strike of lightning In an abandoned fieldSetting it on fireOn paper, fate sealedBut running amongst it's flamesThe rain from this stormYour feet get muddyAnd you're suddenly warmWhere you even came fromWouldnt matter for all the starsJust water and fireStretching near and farConsuming the skyBreaking all liesA bundle of chaos Where no soul might spy©anngeli
I think I'll be alone forever, and no children can change my mind. Those are for stability, and happiness, but not to fill a hole where a heart should be. I am a fool to watch normal people and think and hope to be them. As pathetic as I am, my little opinions and masks dont remain in the dark. I cannot lie to myself. Someday I'll stand somewhere, look out to the sky, and realize how lonely I am. That won't change.If i got married or had children, I'm still alone with my heart. Alone no matter the place.Time, scenario. Point is, I will not lie. I wont try to fit a square into a circle, and be a picture that strangers admire to try amd make up for it.I'm smaller, not missing parts. Lopsided and strange. I'll find content in myself.©anngeli
I dont mind who you areI mind if you're kind©anngeli
The humans no greater than usOnly hold the power we give themUnless we can control that We fall under a false sense of securityJust enough space to move aroundAnd think we can choose, that we DOMeanwhile we had thought it ended But how can the biggest battleOf your existenceBe as simple as asking for it?When we are eating out of their handsYou'll know when the roof has fallenThat being, if the walls crumble with itReducing all to rumble and ashBack to dust to start again©anngeli

TEENAGE,A phase burstling with EMOTIONSWe never stop learning how to MANAGE RELATIONSAll physical changes, a MOOD SWING per second.Sleepless nights, Irritating society, LIFE gets THREATENED LIVE, LOVE,LAUGH is what world recommend A PAINFUL LOVELY SMILE, remains in trend...While learning and understanding right✔or wrong ❌We face traumas, making character strongThese years gradually pass,we remain unawarePeople around PRETEND or do they really CARE??...Doing work by ourselves,We are grown up But staying out at night, we are a childGoing out at our own, we are grown upBut watching late night movies, not so strong and wild...At times we remain careless, mature or sensibleEither child or an adult, we are ourselves responsibleNo matter what we BEAR,We must go through this phaseTo become an ADULT, these are challenges,we have to face..©dania_siddiqui_
I love this brown skinThat I exist inBut I love the soul moreWhich allows me to soar.I'm only passing by In this fleshly lifeFrom my home beyond the sky Where my treasures lie.Do you see who I truly am inside?In the place that I cannot hide?Through what may cloak my essence But not my pride.Past this skinWho I am within.Do you hate the colorOf any other?Detest their existence And seek to smother?Take their airAnd refuse to share,Hate in the placeWhere there should be care.Who is leftWhen you only care for self?For those that look like youWill you forsake all that is true?Turn your back on what is justAnd proclaim yourself to be righteous. Sad souls who can't see beyond the skinAllow themselves to be enveloped by sin,Don't remain weak-minded until your life is through There is still potential for all the good you can do.Through God we can wake a dreamMine for you is to be redeemed.
