End of Year Reflection


I can’t help but appreciate changes to the seasons and their inevitable reminder to reflect. Years end invokes the beauty of the trials, tribulations, and conquests the year has brought on.

Cheers to reflecting!



Late Night Thought X17

You have to learn to appreciate the long nights. Especially the ones followed by an early morning. The walks alone in a city that’s still foreign. The reality of being alone, figuring it out. Don’t lose sight of the moments. They are just that, moments. Brief elements of what makes up who we are, who we are becoming. 

Oh, I love the moments. I love this eye opening experience for everything it’s worth and the woman it’s making me become. 
I almost lost sight…

The Reset – Reality 

Reflective Saturday 

Reality, I’m here to stay 

Strolls through the city

Over which I’ve been so giddy 

This dream come true

So long overdue

Overwhelming sadness

Ideological madness

Verity in this decision

Pause in revision

The fast track

To all the boxes unpacked

Arrived at a standstill

Forced to absorb my fill

This decision I’ve shaped

My old life I’ve escaped

It’s authentic

Most moments virtually hallucinagenic

An elaborate cocktail

Of adventurous, anxious, brave, and frail 

No constant one second to the next

My introspection indefinitely complex

I cant disengage

This mental cage

This roller coaster of emotion

From what I’ve chosen

I wouldn’t change the circumstance

Accompanying this urban romance

Harnessing these feelings

Appreciating these dealings

For the day I reflect

And think, now what’s next?

Expansion Insight X2

Life’s about to become really uncomfortable. 

I secretly love discomfort. 

Cheers to the next chapter. 


Gloomy Morning, Bright Heart


Gloomy mornings can’t cease a blissful heart.

The day is surreal
In touch with the feel
Releasing into the universe
Thoughts rehearsed
In my mind
Starving to find
Resolution to an emptiness
Internal heaviness
Needing to belong
Felt for so long
Finding understanding
Of internal demanding
Sitting stagnant
Due to missing fragments
They were even there
Without unearthing
Behavior Ive been conserving
Needing something more
Stronger than ever before
I think I found the resolution
Or at least a potential solution
A niche that feels favorable
An area so flavorful
Adheres to my senses
A place to let down defenses
A sensation of home
Desire to roam
Expanding field of vision
Continue this life revision
Start fresh in this place anew
Where Inspiration accrues
I need to make the leap
Pick up my feet
Moves to be shaped
Depletedness escaped
