C O M P A S S I O N

The intensity of energy sending tingling senses across the membrane,

Immense anxiety tension,

When I see their faces once again,

Nostalgic memories that left stains,

A menace to my brain,

Had to train my train of thoughts,

To stop bombarding me with negativity,

That causes my spirit to bleed,

My amygdala has no time to dial up and recall, the days when I was once falling,

Until a cloud caught me,

And I’ve been ascending ever since,

I bear witness to the Power higher than I,

An existence that is often denied,

Despite the many lives He spared.

I know what it’s like to be where you’ve been,

That’s why I’m compassionate,

To all those whom I once hated, but showed remorse, repentance recompense,

We all fall short, but some of us wouldn’t stoop so low,

As those reprobate minds who’ve crossed that line,

So wicked they get a kick outta destroying innocent lives,

That’s when compassion runs dry.

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.
