C A Y E N N E (Poem)

My outlook is an introverted version,

Observing from afar,

Searching for the perfect movement,

Certain moments have converted my perception,

Intercepted by my adept way of accepting life for what it is,

Regardless of fleeting feelings which intermittently flee. . . . .

Logic dominates,

And I’ve accommodated to it,

Because logical reasoning is a Hot 🔥 Commodity,

Like a spicy seasoning, Cayenne.

Ay te cay con el Cayenne,

hace que te calles,

sazon de verdades pa’ los que aguanten.

It’s essential to adapt a bit but don’t forget your identity,

Nor where you’re bred,

But be free from prior deceptions,

Fallacious ideologies may have been laced in by your parents’ mistakes,

Who may be new souls,

so new they never even knew souls exist.

Old souls are bold like the dry peppers you unfold,

then crush into a powerful powder,

Cayenne couldn’t be any louder,

Than any fight instigating shouter,

Hotter than a steaming shower,

To those who mistake meekness for weakness,

Cayenne hace que se callen,

Can’t handle the heat of the truth.

There’s always a next lifetime to flavor up your spice nice.

Writer. Poet. Artist. Lyricist. Born in December 16, 1995. I'm Mexican-American of Native American and Spanish descent. Southwestern US born -> Grew up in the Chicagoland area including Northwest Indiana (mostly East Chicago) -> moved to a warmer place. I've been writing since like around the late 2000s. Depression and anxiety was swallowing me and I had difficulty trusting others, so I decided to confide in writing. It started off as Spanish songwriting, then it evolved into English poetry, prose, and short stories the more I improved my English grammar and vocabulary. I once had to take ESL classes, until it was determined that I didn't need to anymore around middle school. I became so dedicated to writing that I just did it everyday, and it served as my daily therapy as I was battling with negative thoughts. It put my mind in a state of meditation where it opened me up to many ideas and inspiration that I lived to create. I began to notice that I could write and speak things into existence with my words and actions. I had to find myself, and search for the power of the mind.
