R I S I N G

We are rising,
Awakened by the Divine light,
With a message for us to fulfill our purpose,
“But I thought I was worthless?” ‘Guess not.
Surprised by the gifts we’ve got,
With a goal in mind, to go beyond gold mines.

While the world despises how high we choose to rise,
The true colors of mankind is tragic,
The unveiling of the mask reveals a face never seen,
Eyes onyx, a body overtaken by darkness,
There’s no reviving this, simply because of their decisions,
They choose this and relish in it, spreading the illness,
A covert menace is never your friend.

You create beauty through your gifts and they despise every time you get lifted,
Through your undying work ethic,
Despite being afflicted with bite mark scars to prove the tribulations,
You’ve been resuscitated as they continue to hate,
The same people who doubted you will hate you,
The lack of credit they give is not a currency to accept,
We need to be adept at not giving a damn,
It’s just another day for the outcast.

Wife. Writer. Poet. Artist. Lyricist. Born in December 16, 1995. Mexican-American. Southwestern US born -> Grew up in the Chicagoland area & Northwest Indiana (mostly East Chicago) -> moved to a warmer place living that Southern coastal life. 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.
