I'm sorry I gave you my DNA

I'm sorry if I gave you the genetic code that runs through my cells.  Though in the latter years it's served me well. I will admit in the beginning it was painful.
To be strange.
To be wired.
The ability to be unlike anyone.
Even if I suspected it all along.
It took me years to figure out that though, that I was not like them. That I had talents only the gifted possed.
They will call it a disability and label you “special” in a condescending manner and for that I'm sorry. It will be sad and at times you will cry as I did unable to comprehend why.
Why you,  why me you will ask.

It's in our genetic code that twin Helix. Hidden like a secret only we can hear. It's our talent our gift. We only have to learn how to use it. How to unlock this Pandora's box. Harness it's energy. To push it out unto the daylight so that it can shine. Like the jewel it truly is.
You will see, hear and feel things like no one else. But for now it will be difficult.
You will struggle you will be challenged and life will be hard.
And for this I am truly sorry.
Use this adversity to mold you, make you, shape you.
If the path you took was easy you would not arrive at the same destination.
So when I say I'm sorry I guess I only mean for now. Because in time you will learn to love this gift.
The gift of being one part per million.
Once you can unlock the true potential of your gift all will change before your very eyes.
You will build your heart up to be strong. Fill it full of love for yourself and others.
When you are ready you will share this with the world and it will be a better place because of you.
Stay unique,
Remain the original person you were destined to be, ordained by your genetic code.

What does your happiness wear? Sometimes it wears a loosely tied bathrobe and some old loafers but today it’s pretty solid. .

What is your go-to way of dealing with stress in a healthy way? Self-care is so important & everyone should make time for themselves. My remedy for a stressful day is a thourough skincare routine followed by a comfy evening in bed with a pen & my journal of the moment, writing of course #readbyrose ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #originalpoetry #poemofthenight #f4f #followforfollowback #mtlblog #mtlmoments #montreal #handwrittenquotes #quotestoliveby #canadianpoet #thegoodquote #madewords #mtlblogger #handwrittenpoetry #penguinpoetrynyc #thoughtfvl #globalagepoetry #worldofpoets #globalwordsmiths #avoicefromfaraway #cursivepoem #bookofpoets #omypoetry #writersnetwork #globalagetyro #canadianpoetry #poetryfollowers

A Letter To My Mental Illness. • Photo by @tonywegnerphotos || This piece is from my collection-in-progress called “An Anthology of The Human Condition” that’s been in the works for the last few months... #poemsaboutmentalhealth #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetryofinstagram #instapoetry #canadianpoetry #poemsofig #poemsaboutanxiety #anxietypoems

When darkness falls on the baracadess
And the hope you had has turned to blood.
Let out unto the ash and sand.
To stain the world for a moment
A moment in time,
A frozen second, on this earths turn.
We made this darkness
We are the architects of butchery.
Our false idol's just savage sickles cutting down the only true and pure thing that we forgot to love. It lies barren beneath us.
Used.
We have taken from this giving tree and offered nothing in return.
Oh garden, oh lush green an blue dot how we have forsaken you and all your gifts.

Oh mother,

Oh creator,

You are the embodiment of all things good and pure. We're are the devil's running wild burning your temples killing and pillaging.
We are the subtraction in this environmental equation.
How do we learn.
How do we learn to give back, to be the caretakers that were destined to be.
How can we fight the programing all around us.
Can we find a way to love.
To love you the way you have loved us for milena.
Every sapien has the capacity for love.
Our false gods have led us away from the garden. To view you as a thing, an object.
An object of desire.
Something we hold dominion over.
Not as our mother.
Whom holds dominion over us.
Mother I love you I have and always will.
To smell your moss on a rainy afternoon.
To forage amongst your bosom.
To swim naked in your lakes.
To walk barefoot on your beaches.
As we are all connected so shall we remain.
