A Raised Voice

“Don’t

raise your voice little one.

People might think you’re angry

rather than passionate

and you must not be passionate

about anything

lest you upset sensibilities.”

Getting Over

There are some things you cannot just get over.

They take time

and patience.

They take you at some point

facing yourself in that mirror,

calling the past to the forefront

and being not afraid of what you see.

Some things follow.

Some things leave.

On the Menu

How about a taste of a different flavor?

Too much pain for one lifetime,

taste buds get used to the feeling of hurt

and you think it’s all you deserve,

not true.

On the menu is happiness,

love, good health and pleasure,

absolutely no substitutes.
