“My Beautiful Butterfly”

I found a caterpillar one day
It didn’t know its worth…
For it was meant to fly
But it only knew of being on the ground, of pain & of hurt

So I picked up that caterpillar
and I told it to be strong
I said “circumstances are only temporary but your victories will last long”

The caterpillar didn’t care
The condition it was in was all it knew

I begged the caterpillar, “just trust me”
A change will come, very soon

And the day the caterpillar trusted me

It turned into a butterfly

Before flying away, it looked at me & simply asked, “why?”
“Why did you waste your time on me?”

I quickly replied…
“I saw beauty and potential, whenever I looked into your eyes
and that’s all that mattered; at least to me.

You turning into what you were always supposed to become,
now that was all you.

All you needed was time.…

My beautiful butterfly.”

“Questions”

Sporadically I wonder…

What does a blind man dream?

His eyes have never encountered anything vividly,

So when he sleeps, what does he see?

Given the circumstances

It could be rude to ask.

But asking questions are healthy

So I might just take that chance.

In the night-time I ponder…

On the homeless and what they really fear.

Everything has been taken away from them

Except their knowledge and their tears.

When they sleep in dark alley ways and beg people for change,

I want to ask them, if they ever bumped into anyone they knew…

Would they feel ashamed?

Given the circumstances

I’d have to be bold to ask.

And since I’ve been bold before,

I might just take that chance.

It’s when I don’t ask questions that I truly become  afraid

There is something about knowledge

no matter what the subject

that simply allures

Me.

“My Possession…”

images-15

I have myself

And myself haveth I

If I should feel I have no one

I look for my shadow nearby

As I walk around

Plenty of people I see

But still I am confident

All I have is me

I am the one whose soul is alive

It is me who holds my secrets inside

I am the girl who puts herself to sleep

I alone wipe the tears when I weep

No one knows me better than me

I have myself

And myself haveth I

Should that be all I ever have

As I am

I will continue to be alright

I am my greatest possession.

“Healing Phase”

People say, “let go”

but it sounds to me like they’re asking

It’s more than a simple action

Should there be an attraction

What if you like all the things you were holding on to?images

And memories were the only thing

That helped you get through

The days & nights

They’re hard to fight

People say, “let go”

If only they knew

What if I’m not ready to let go…of what I’m holding on to?images

Everybody deals differently.

Healing Phase.

Now, as some of you may know and for those which don’t, I launched the OhemmaWrites website last year in 2012, on my birthday, August 21st!

It was my gift to myself. A project I started and loved. My vision, my work and my words came to life through OhemmaWrites.com and I am still extremely grateful.

Since the start of OhemmaWrites in 2012 up until today, many things haveUnknown-3 occurred in my life. All experiences were necessary to get me to where I am today, and as much as they moved me, they also grew me.

Officially being a year older and a bit wiser, I believe in the statement, “the more love and knowledge you share, the more that will come back to you .”

So as a 24th birthday gift to myself, today, I wanted to spread my wisdom and share my “OhemmaWrites list of the 24 things I know to be true” based on the years I’ve been alive.

Here it goes!

“OhemmaWrites List of the 24 things I know to be true”

1. Don’t confuse the ppl who are always around with the ones who are always there. There’s a difference.
2. You can be a good person and still make bad choices. It’s what makes us human.
3. Help can come from unexpected people, places and things. Always embrace it and be grateful.
4. Acceptance of the things you can’t control makes everything better.
5.Time makes everything better.
6. Be patient, be still. Things have a way of working themselves out.
7. It’s wonderful, fun and comforting to have an advocate at home, in the workplace and generally in life , but with or with out, your greatest ally must be you.
8. There’s no growth when you are comfortable. Be uncomfortable.
9. It’s okay to not know. (I.e. life, career, relationships…)
God guides best when YOU don’t know because HE does. Let go and let HIM use you.
10. Music can heal. Find that one song that always makes you feel better & don’t be afraid to play it, All the time!..
11. Trust your gut, even when things don’t make sense. The gut doesn’t lie.
12.A person who really loves you never gives up on you, no matter the time, problems or distance. If they do, they never really loved you. Love is patient.
13. Smile at strangers now and again, you never know what they’re going through. Smiling may even help YOU as you’re going through…& You WILL make it through!!!
14. It’s okay to change your mind.
15. Happiness is a choice.
16. Don’t wait for life to throw something big at you before you pause and pay attention. Appreciate and notice the little signs. The details.
17. “Find what you love & let it kill you”- Bukowski ..is the best quote for following your passion.
18. It’s okay to want company but always be content with just your own.
19. Books are beautiful,read some and tell people about it.
20. God doesn’t always give you what you ask for but he WILL always supply all your needs. Even if there is only 1% of faith left in you, don’t let go. Always believe things will turn around and one day they will.
21. “You don’t need a certain amount of friends, only a friend you can be certain of”… & that’s real.
22. Loving yourself is an everyday process, don’t get frustrated. Everybody’s going through the process.
23.At the end of the day, YOU have to live with YOU. Make sure YOU’RE someone YOU can be proud of.
24. Writing, singing, talking, any form of expression is the best feeling in the world. Try it. Often!

Iv’e learned, as I got older…
