The Riwa Project

I spent hours in front of blank pages

Poems that remain nameless

I’m still very much war with myself

how the vices seem sweet from a distance

falling forward

Just to find myself hurting and missing

My mental health took a whipping

I've been at war with the system

Pointing fingers and Clenching fists

Middle fingers

Wanting the whole world to change around me when I wasn’t building

Jealousy is bitter taste

Little money and heart can change

Don’t know where I’d be if I never prayed

THANKS for reading! The name of this series is the "Riwa Project", My intention is post a poem a day, eventually releasing a book titled "Riwa" where some of these peoms will be published!
