Dream with care

Sings all day, ne'er cries Knows no pain, joys or sorrows She is a mermaid I had a dream To break boundaries To be a star My hopes started with a flicker now they are large, larger than life A raging fire Threatening to engulf from within They must breath, else I can't be On … Continue reading Dream with care

May light be yours

O'er you may be gloom Tears may drip, but 'twill be fine Like stars in the night Daintly hanging up above Let hope shine through the dark ❤Aweni It's international widow's day. Give yourself the chance to find the light again. It may be hard, but please hang in there. ❤Aweni

Watermelon girl

Enid tricked this girl Golliwogs were just her dolls Come alive in books The world woke her up 'Watermelon lips' she's called Glass ceilings in place Her heart's untarnished Though obvious ills unspoken Assail her daily Her lips and skin speak "Watermelon girl, you're 'spesh'!"

Rainbow

May rains bow to you Eyes to sun, feet steady, walk To end of rainbows Cares to the wind, hopes in heart Therein is your pot of gold ❤Aweni Image and poetry ©Aweni Adams 2019

Unique style in spades Cold shoulder to naysayers Dreams in abundance Attitude oozing from pores His Oomph will light the darkness ❤Aweni Image and poetry ©Aweni Adams 2019

Miss Dainty

One hop, two hops, twirl A dainty form on life's stage. Cheers, boos, laughs or cries, Dainty moves with no remorse. Will she spend time on time past? Most certainly not! ❤Aweni Adams Image and poetry ©Aweni Adams 2019

So many Qs

  I ponder where do their hopes differ  She drinks of crimson red drops And bites of his flesh They wash the darkness away to reveal a heart white as snow and filled with gold   The sun and moon sing Leave them be, let them believe Without hope man dies.   I ponder yet again … Continue reading So many Qs

Never give up!

    "Giving up is not an option!" Mother's words echoed as I reached my breaking point. Her words from many years ago became a lifeline that pulled me back to reality. Her darks eyes had held mine unwaveringly as she said them, urging me to never forget. Now, I must muster the strength to survive … Continue reading Never give up!

Up in the air

  Do you remember? Mama told you and I That our wings would take us places never before seen To the fifth and sixth seasons that humans know not of As the winds ruffle my feathers I chuckle as I recall my doubt when mama spoke Twirling and sailing in the air I speed up then … Continue reading Up in the air
