Discovery

My dream of having
someone to love has

Finally come true,
a dream embodied

By warm hazel eyes
and a steadfast will,

Someone who cherishes
my soul with fervor,

One who would stop
at nothing to make me happy.

I always dreamed of
sharing a life with

Someone who cherishes
true love, and I finally

Discovered that in you.

Journal Entry: Unrest

So much unrest happening in our world today. Riots happening in the South and Mid-West due to racism and police brutality. It would be wonderful for people to look past racial differences, to respect one another, but unfortunately we are unable to do so.

I've always been able to look past color. My Puerto Rican family is of mixed race (my grandmother being a black Puerto Rican, my grandfather being of fair complexion). People would look at my family and stare in surprise when I would introduce my grandmother. I always found that very amusing.

Prejudice was introduced to me at a young age. I recall walking home with my mom, and we passed by two little girls. I smiled at them, since that's what six year olds do, but the girl just gave me a look and said to her friend, 'that white girl just smiled at me', and kept on walking. She never smiled back.

I felt confused, turned to my mom and asked why she called me that. My mom replied, 'people say that to each other sometimes, when they look different'. While I'm a Puerto Rican with light skin, I never thought of myself as 'White', since that what my family would say that about the famous people on television.

As I got older, I continued to witness people saying rude comments about one another. I would hear stories from my grandfather about how life was in Paterson long ago, how neighbors were friendly to each other, then just decided to leave when 'people like us' began moving in. I would take in all of these stories and be in disbelief. How could people hate each other because they looked different? My biracial family taught me that differences in skin color should be embraced!

All the shootings, the violence against each other because of race, must end now. The fact that we're still fighting about race and ethnicity in 2016 is still heartbreaking. We need to look past our differences and learn from one another.

Autumn

Autumn now arrives,
red and golden leaves drifting
onto cooling soil.

Other Way

We look the other way
when conflict arises,

Wave our hands in disgust,
say 'someone will handle it'

As we slip the blinders
over our eyes.

Even when the layers
are peeled back, and hurtful

Words are spoken, people
victimized and beaten

Due to ethnicity,
religion, and gender,

We hope that someone else
will deal with the chaos,

Even when a tyrant
threatens our freedom.

Journal Entry: Breaktime Musings

Afternoon during break, drinking coffee. Since I work with toddlers, this is the only time during my work day that I can truly relax. It helps that the staff lounge is next to a classroom playing naptime music, the calming aura helps. Perhaps it might make me sleep too, but that hasn't happened yet.

For now I'm just checking email and reading Facebook drama postings. How people are tired of reading about celebrity couples divorcing (I could care less about Brad and Angelina), and who's feuding in the goth/industrial music world (too many strong personalities clashing with each other). It's all entertainment to me.

During my breaks four years ago, I would Facebook group chat with 3 other people: two I reconnected with from college, and another whom I met at a birthday party. We kept in contact after the gathering, celebrating birthdays and holidays together. My hour would be filled with laughter and weird stories from these friends. This trio became a lifeline for me after a breakup and move to Manhattan. By reaching out to these friends during my breaks and other moments of free time, I learned to heal. I'm now deeply close with one of these friends, but I'll go into that later!

Break is almost done, now to quickly check email before I return to my little ones. Another lovely day, and taking them outside sounds so ideal.

Journal Entry: Relaxation and baseball

A moment to myself, unwinding after a long work day. I'm finally doing what I love, yet the work setting is not the most ideal. Despite the challenges, I'm glad it gave me the opportunity to move out of Northern NJ. I lived in a nice neighborhood, yet there was no growth for me there. My former living situation left me in an awkward position with family members. Lots of negative energies whenever I came home. I no longer deal with that, which is a relief.

Now it's the process of getting my creativity off the ground. Feel comfortable with what I can do, and florish while handling a full time work schedule.

Tonight, I'm watching the Mets game. They're turning out to have a good season, even with all the injuries they've endured. It's already been a dramatic week in baseball...there was a West coast game that had a good bench-clearing moment. Too bad that it was a West coast game...living in New Jersey, I was already fast asleep when it happened!

Whole

Growing up it was
the two of us,

Siblings not through blood
but devotion.

We shared and laughed
together through the pain.

Over time we went
our separate ways;

Our connections now
held together through

Limited calls and updates
through family, if that.

I moved away from our
home town, while you

Continue to make sense
of your life,

Now having another
to care for.

I reach out to lend
support, yet it's met

With silence on
the other end.

Years move on, pages
of time always turning;

Our journeys became split,
yet my bond with you

Remains the same in spirit,
and I strive to keep it whole.

09/20/2016

Splintered

Some deep
connections crack
over time, and we are

Unique

Even though time flips through
the pages of our lives,

I think of moments spent
with friends, loved ones,

People who stayed for
a certain amount of time

And exited, for one reason
or another.

Sometimes I am the one
who sticks around and leaves,

My duration in their story
coming to an end.

We all have journeys
that we travel on,

Each path unique,
significant.

Submerged

I stayed submerged

Friendships
are so precious,
so rare to find two souls
sharing entire lives in mere
moments.

Journal Entry: May 4 2016

Three good things about today:

1) I listened to Chevelle today to cheer myself up. Music brings peace to my soul.

2) I kept a nervous child company during After Care at work. We played a couple of card games.

3) One of my students shared with me a project she made last night. It contained the colors of spring.

Journal Entry: May 3rd, 2016

Three positive things that happened today:

1) I helped one of my students gather materials for an activity during recess. She also learned some facts about nature.

2) I continued my job search, even after receiving news that would have discouraged me in the past.

3) I spoke to a close friend this morning. It was brief, I'm grateful to have that time with her.

Proceeding

I spend the days
rebuilding my path,

So my purpose 
could regain

A sense of direction,
Proceeding with 

Renewed confidence.

Wishing

I look back at 
my journey thus far

With a tinge of regret,
wishing I fought to

Maintain the thread of
independence longer,

Instead of severing
the line out of fear.

Soft, plentiful.
Freezing, sticking, coating.
It covers the neighborhood.

Urgency

She calls with an
urgent message,

Making a decision
that would change her life;

She stands alone,
yet she proceeds to act,

Changing her path
for good.

Social Tapestry

Everyone has
a small community

To connect with,
a small circle

To cast out the lifeline
in dire moments;

When we reach out
to our neighbors,

Threads are woven
together, binding lives,

In order to enrich
the social tapestry.

September Evening

That night we walked
side by side,

Full moon shining
as the September breeze

Danced around us.
We weren't together then,

yet I always felt safe
when you were near.

I began to wonder
if it was a sign

For me to trust once more,
to let someone real

Finally enter my space
and complete me.

Dissipating

She reaches out to me,
breaking her solitude
after weeks of silence.

She throws the lifeline
once more, the desperation
pushing down isolation.

We talk for an hour
as she dissipates the
dark pangs of lonliness.

1/12/2016

Enlivening

You take me in your arms
when I need it the most,
your presence a warm glow
when I live in despair.
Your kisses enliven
a soul battered in doubt.

Counting

I count
the days, waiting
patiently for a shift
in luck so my next chapter can
be penned.

Watching

protecting her
from visible danger,
while others fail to see what stands
before them.

Last Day

Last day
of vacation
spent with him, and I wish
I had one more day to share these
moments.

Close

I wake,
startled from dreams
close to reality,
then I'm relieved that I can rest
some more.

Varied, unique.
Talking, sharing, bonding.
We catch up often.
Kindred.
