Poetry Reading Ep 5: Spouse

Another video. Trying to get better at recording. It’s still a working progress. But this piece was my opinion on domestic violence. I often feel like we ignore the abuse that a woman portrays because of the simple narrative that men are stronger. I feel there’s a deeper feeling of being physically attacked no matter the genders. I’m rambling but that’s the opinion I tried to portray. Like, comment, and subscribe to my youtube channel. View some of my previous post.

Writing Prompt #23

Write a poem about your body

My body is a temple that I often don’t want to be in

The look and make of the model may be pleasant to some but not me

Reasons why I use to want to leave

But I rather do some repairs

And continue to climb the stairs

To Success

We are not all blessed

With a great body that cover our flesh

But it’s up to us

To change the image that we don’t like instead of putting up a fuss

That’s what I think of my body

Other Version:

My body is like a Chevy Tahoe

Big and wide

It still is a good ride

The inside is nice

Great leather seats inside

The engine is loud and impactful

Once you hear it you will be amazed

But why am I so fazed

I just never looked at the body as great

I guess because the dents

Always made me repent

Fixing it up would bring me joy that I always dreamt

But that thought is nothing but a dream that mechanics been told me would happen

But it just hasn’t happened

So I settle for this truck

Because for the time being I’m stuck

Reason why I barely take it out

Because this truck is something I’m not comfortable with

Disclaimer: I don’t hate myself by the way. I could see how you can get that vibe from this. But I wrote 2 versions just because I had two different comparisons for this prompt. Hope you enjoyed. By the way this prompt came from https://www.journalbuddies.com/journal_prompts__journal_topics/60-daily-creative-writing-prompts/

Window (Spoken Word)

The window stood open and all I had to do was jump

Jump and hopefully, all my problems will be over

As I flew to the ground, I can feel the burden being lifted off my shoulder 

My loss is going to hit my loved ones like a bolder

But I know when I was here they gave me the cold shoulder 

They only love you when it’s all over

When I was here they act like they didn’t know me

Now they love me more than ever

If only they showed it when I was here I wouldn’t be flying through the sky like a lost feather
