Letter to my Aunt In Heaven

Dear Aunt aka Tia Toya

Today is your birthday just one day before mine. I wish I could call you on the landline. You departed this life to live up above. But a day doesn’t pass without me feeling your love.

You were my Tia and also my friend. You thought I was silly and sometimes a bit insane. But it didn’t matter cause you loved me just the same.

You were at times quiet but always thinking. You were selfless in loving despite the tears you were blinking.

You sometimes scolded others but for their own good. In certain aspects you were misunderstood.

You were my mother’s sister and confidant. At the parties you were the most radiant.

I really miss calling you today. But I heard your voice when I put my hands together to pray.

Happy birthday Tia. I Love you.

Your niece Guadalupe Macias

U

Words
My words your words
Just letters add punctuation

So many emails in my inbox
Yet you were rendered speechless
You had no words to say

The alphabet is not quite the same
You are the one to blame
So many words so much to say
Yet you said nothing and ran away!

Now letters remain but no u.
No exclamation
No declaration

Just lonely letters
And your hesitation

Sending hugs from Brooklyn to wherever you are. Remember there is no letter U in self love.

Pondering


I feel between us a great divide
It’s like you ran to hide

I just want to give you all my love
But it seems you think it’s stupid stuff

Is what I offer you not enough?
Do you prefer that diamond and her rough?

I chose you, yes you above all else
But I won’t live in shadows of her hells.

Are you caught under her spell?
Please shed some light if I’m not right
Cause to be honest I just can’t tell.

Love Guady G

Sending hugs from Brooklyn.

Why do you find it necessary to make fun of me? Why does it bring you joy to see me cry?

I’ve done nothing to you yet you loathe me. Stop telling me you want me to die!

This dark skin is a part of me! Pierce it! I’ll never bleed for you!. Go ahead and try!

I’m not going anywhere for I love me! I pity your ignorance and that makes me cry.

Stop hating my essence and just accept my presence!

Happy Sunday. I send you much love. Never forget you are beautiful just the way you are!

Hugs from Brooklyn

The Leaves Don’t Want To Leave!!

We change whether we like it or not.
We bloom so green but then fall approaches
We begin to lose life but no one takes notice!

We are vibrant in pretty colors.
Hiding our pain and fears so well this way!
In reality we forget ourselves.

Then we fall and the wind takes us away.
Winter comes and we are but a sweet memory!

Well I’m done having to leave like those that left before me!

I chose to stay for I want to be the tree.
It withstands all seasons.
Even when gone it’s roots will always remain.
I too want to let the world know…
I was here!!

Signed the Lone Leaf

Love you all
