jorgebrito: I wish for friends, good alcohol (no drunkenness), a comfy couch, a mellow playlist and some stimulating discourse on life, love and growth. Which one of my homies can make this happen tomorrow? Wish I was close to you sun. This is my wish on the daily- just add some good food and an occasional (throwback) hip-hop track that makes me stop the conversation/throw my hands up/and say...
What I Learned While Playing Daddy in Chess
I learned to play chess while overseas. I’m not good at by any means, but I did get a firm grasp of each pieces abilities and purpose on the board. (I think) Either way, buying my dad a chess board was a big deal- because I know how much he loves the game. Learning to play was a bigger deal (and part of the gift), because now I would also be able to play him in it… not just sit around...

My 6yr. Old Sister: They didn't make fun of him?

Freewrite from the month before last
Title’s are tempting I can’t always map out wrong or right But calling you mine just seemed fitting Felt a lot like certainty Not so much like possession Just potential A sure thing in a bucket of blind folds Something to sleep to And a face worth waking up for As for you Titles must’ve sounded like land mines going off Secret agendas, unknown expectations Friendly fire’s in pure form Like tight...

I thought that if I sat still You’d eventually find me Deserving So I learned to float in attempts at complimenting the ocean that you are But floating feels a lot like drowning when the tide comes rushing in And this friendship Is more dead man than doggy paddle What seems like little action As it becomes gradually harder to breathe I can’t hold this position and keep my head above water What...

This is Faith
alysiasache: Where you experience pain, I too experience pain. But I also experience growth. Where you find disappointment, I too find disappointment. But I also find patience. Where you recognize coincidence, I too recognize coincidence. But I also recognize miracles. Where you see reality, I too see reality. But I also see possibility. This is Faith.

I’ve been cheating lately. Looking at older post… if only from a week ago (while I was traveling), I was actually writing. I’ve been re-posting like crazy, and acting like it still makes my blog my own… with no contributions from me. Shameful. My head has just been all over the place. I can’t commit to any thing life changing in this moment (while typing, not in...
