Let it be enough. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve seen some posts about the algorithm changing again, so I guess that’s something to keep in mind if my posts don’t pop up on your feed. Anyway, I hope you’re all feeling good <3
If i had you close i would not let you go
if i could see you
i would not take my eyes off of you
if i could i would hold you tight
and i would not let go
because when i have you near
you make me happy
that i tear with joy
i would wisper in your ear
how i feel for you
and tell you i wont let go
i would hold you like
a little girl would hold her teddy at night
and i would not fear
for i have you here
its this simple
i would never, never let go.
Did you know? The word "sun" in the last two lines of my latest poem actually has triple meaning. 1) the literal sun 2) my parents' son, Brett 3) Jesus, the son of God
As a poet, I choose my words extremely intentionally and consider it part of the artistic process to create lines that are packed with layers of meaning. I LOVE WORDS.
If you ever have a question about a particular word or phrase, just ask!
I’ve always wanted to write and share my work but never had the courage to do so. I was always afraid of being judged and thought of as a crazy person for sharing my personal thoughts. But writing has helped me grow through so many obstacles and difficult times I’ve experienced over the years. It wasn’t until I started sharing my work with my close friends that I realized my words could help others grow as well. Talking about the hard times, and the emotions we harbor is an uncomfortable task. I started this page to break the stigma of talking about the shitty things, to embrace loving yourself and to be proud of your self growth. Follow my page. Let’s be gentle with each other, we all have room to grow. If my words speak to you, repost, like, comment, tag, share. #helpusgrow 🖤✨
Know your own strength
If you embrace faith strongly
next to the love of your heart,
there’s no bloody fear
or judicious mind
that could ever win
To the strength in your veins,
hold tightly onto your shoulders
harder than LOVE
With every inch of your body
more than just enough
Your unbeaten inner beauty
is a test of your established self-esteem
Embrace your charms and virtues
through every choice that matters.
Build bright walls of trust
with your head up high
Have an unconditional authentic self
In the bottom of your heart
of whom you’d endlessly be proud
- Irida @izusiwriter
Know your own strength
When you allow yourself to be forgiven,
to the lines in your time
Welcome new cells;
you were never a prisoner
You are the architect
not an archetypeo,
certainly not a mistake
From your pocked T-zone
down to your hammer toe
You aren’t a work in progress
You are progress
Moments motivate movements
Kinetic energy propulsion
This self esteem engine
can’t be derailed
You are untouchable
Spend more time naked
Enjoy your own company
You are your own heroin
- Archer @archer.poetry
WAH WAH ALERT-
Apologies for my recent absence. I have been writing here and there so hopefully will be updating yall soon enough, but for now I need a lil more "free-me time".
On top of being Bipolar I have been given an OCD & trauma related diagnosis. The first ten days of 2019 was spent receiving treatment for intrusive thoughts mostly concerning suicide.
Essentially it was not a great time to get too caught up in my own (somewhat vulgar) self expression, & learn to control what I was expressing.
Thankfully with some patient doctors and empathetic nurses I have earnestly began my path to peace. I met some of the sweetest people in my life who happen to be patients just as worthy as myself.
There are so many more steps to take.. though I finally feel rooted in my within my team and eager to bloom from this desolate desert that has dried out every positive quality I have acquired since my first memory.

Fun fact: I'm a fashion designer who probably would've studied creative writing if I hadn't fallen in love with the creativity behind clothes. This photo isn't the most recent lol, but it's one of my favorites. It always seems to remind me that I chose to do what I love when I need it most.✨

"I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things not meant for me."
Came across this quote on Pinterest and unfortunately there wasn't a name to credit it. I really love it though, so thought I'd share it here.🖤
