  • I used to spend my days telling myself that everything good that you want, that you deserve takes a little while. I would tell myself the same each day not knowing how much do I believe in that statement myself. I would look at myself and try to smile, ignore the dark shades around my eyes to say that I am really alright. Was I? Or was I trying to be, I don't know. 
I used to live each day feeling as if kilograms of weight were set behind me, tied up to my body with chains and each time I tried to take a step forward, it stood its ground, making me stay on mine. I would pull with every ounce of energy and determination that my body could spare but it seemed to not help me take more than a step or two. 
And with that, I would look at others walking past me with such grace as if the weight tied to them was just a mere feather, as if nothing was able to going to stop them. 
But I kept telling my heart to not lose hope, my feet to keep trying, my body to fall forward just for another small but crucial step.
After a while, I looked down at my burning feet in the sun, drops of sweat trickling from my body and turning to steam as they touch the ground and an easier motion of careful, small but frequent steps. I saw a light, the one that was maybe a smile of someone I love, or maybe a light that was a mere quote stated by a speaker, maybe it was a scene of a movie or maybe it were the lyrics of a song. But the light kept me moving forward, made me ask, "Do you really believe that good things take time?" and made me answer it with a "Yes".

  • Oh so excited about this anniversary gift I poured so much love into. I can’t wait to hear what they think!!! I’m going to have a special order section in my shop soon. As of right now, I’m still exploring what that looks like! ——
I HAVE A PATREON! Get monthly poems, process videos and updates you won’t get on my feed. Every dollar goes to helping KPS become better than ever and something I truly dreamed it would be! Can’t commit monthly, that’s so okay. You can also buy me a coffee via link in my bio 💖

  • I was planning on releasing this poem Friday to give myself a day to make some adjustments if necessary, but apparently it's world poetry day so figured I'd post it and join in on the festivities. This one's called 'Adrift' and was inspired by the insomnia I've been working through for a couple of weeks now. Compared to prior, recent poems, this one's more abstract and meant to somewhat mimic the fragmented sleep I've been having, while still focusing around the central struggle that's at the root of my restlessness. Thanks for reading ✌🏼

  • Stab me a hundred times,
till the dagger is glistening in my blood.
Then, say the pathetic word, 'sorry',
and expect me to forgive you.
Break my trust, time after time,
till I lose the ability to trust anyone.
Then, say the pathetic word 'sorry',
and expect me to forgive you.
Hurt me on a daily basis, like it's a game,
till I can't take anymore and give up.
Then, say the pathetic word, 'sorry',
and expect me to behave the same way I used to before.

Say 'sorry' till the word means nothing to me,
like I mean nothing to you.
