Second Thoughts

Poem By Lily Vasquez

I'm up
Seeing what I now see
It makes me wish I was fast asleep
I could close my eyes
But that doesn't make it go away
It makes me regret wanting to stay
But unfortunately, I did
Believing in the possibilities
Believing in you and me
And the things you said made mad from jump
You were stupid
I was stupider
And you know what?
I NEVER make the same mistake twice

Keep It Movin'

The hands on the clock
They never stop turning
And us, as people
We never stop learning

Jealousy

I'm up
Seeing what I now see
It makes me wish I was fast asleep
I could close my eyes

My Poisonous Teddy Bear

I find you
broken, beaten, defeated
Why?
I haven't the slightest idea

Queen

I am a queen
Sans the glitz
and the glam
Sans the subjects

Mother

A woman like you
People always ask for
A person who not only opens
But guides you through the door
