๐Ÿ—ฃSOUND ON! 
SWIPE LEFT ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฟ
*We Wear the Mask*
BY: PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR ( Recitation: @peacemanifested )
We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,โ€”
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.
Why should the world be over-wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while  We wear the mask.
We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;But let the world dream otherwise,  We wear the mask!

Have you ever been around genuine love
Love that allows you to fully open up
Love that sees you in your rawest form
And still do not threaten to leave
Love that doesn't manipulate the
Goodness and softness of your heart
Love that sees flowers inside you
Yet, able to let them blossom
Love that holds space for you
Knowing you are still climbing ladders
Ladders that will help you resonate
To your higher self
.
.
.
Have you been around genuine love
Love that looks you in eyes
And tells every of your mood
Love that is genuine
Genuine enough to let you
Bloom.

Daily Haiku #5
Notes: This writing talks about unrequited love.  There are different reasons for love to not be returned.  Modern day love stories involve "main girls", "side girls", "ex's" and denial and lies.  We can thank our reliance on social media and our phones.  We advertise ourselves on Instagram with pictures of leisure, wealth, and success.  We then can fall in love with false representations of people. -
This writing depicts an old school lover who had eyes for one girl and cannot win her heart over.  Love can border obsession at times, whether that is healthy or unhealthy I'll let you decide that. -
Also, we put so much emphasis on the importance of our first loves.  The people who introduced you to something as complicated, both painful and pleasurable as love. They are also your first heartbreak and they break you down and leave you in pieces to figure out how to fix the spilled milk left behind.  Maybe there is power in the hopeless soul shattered by love loss with tear-filled eyes and a heart broken in a million pieces.  Not power in the current state but potential power to grow and learn and become better than they were before.  More wise and knowledgeable than they were before. Instead of focusing on the impact of the first lover I believe it should be a stronger focus on the impact of the second lover.  The light-hearted soul that made you laugh, cry, and believe in love again.  Made you believe at this thing called second chances.  Believe in the fact that they like all beings are deserving of love too.

Listen, baby Doreen and adult Doreen are equally obsessed with flowers ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ keep reading for a poem a wrote!
.
.
.

I come from skies so dark and stars so bright,
Nights so black and flies full of light,
From burning sun, to ground, to skin. .
.
.

I see brown boys and girls with smiles white as milk, 
love and joy oozing from skin smooth like silk,

Zest for life, the air so crisp, as it brush my lip, 
To stay forer a wish I keep and so I live,
.
.
.

A love letter to the place I left too soon and keep in my heart for days of gloom
.
.

Listen, baby Doreen and adult Doreen are equally obsessed with flowers ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ keep reading for a poem a wrote!
.
.
.

I come from skies so dark and stars so bright,
Nights so black and flies full of light,
From burning sun, to ground, to skin. .
.
.

I see brown boys and girls with smiles white as milk,
love and joy oozing from skin smooth like silk,

Zest for life, the air so crisp, as it brush my lip,
To stay forer a wish I keep and so I live,
.
.
.

A love letter to the place I left too soon and keep in my heart for days of gloom
.
