What’s This Life About?

You were once swimming in murky waters,

Evil lurking with you overlooking the light behind you,

Attempting to signal you back home,

But we’ve turned our backs from it momentarily,

Feeding our naive curiosity, fueled by our animosity, that was embedded in our psyche,

The world has programmed us to self-destruct,

Some people call it just “being human,” but we cannot normalize embracing the darkness, not trying to open our eyes, we would be glorifying our own demise,

We are human, but we are also spiritual beings, capable of overcoming vices from harmful devices that our traumas forced us to need to cope with,

The attacks are relentless, daily we deal with this,

At least don’t go without a fight. That fight in you shows your intent to be righteous,

your effort will not be in vain, when you seek to confront pain, practice healthy self-restraint, discipline to be vigilant,

instead of indulging in meaningless hedonism that’ll hypnotize you into oblivion, and learn nothing from this Earthly experience.

The riches we must multiply is in wisdom, a valid currency for the afterlife.

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.
