Journal / Journey

My Story

To understand me

Is to understand where

I came from

The experiences

That shaped me

The memories

That I cannot forget

The trauma

That I need to heal from

To be me

To realize my fullest potential

Not to compromise

Not to accommodate

To bring my full self

To the world

Ready or not

Let’s begin.

 

I prefer to write

In a short hand

Akin to music lyrics

To poetry

Enough for an idea

Without grammar

Without spelling

With emotion

To journal

About my feelings

My ideas

Thoughts

In response

To clear my

Mind

Heart

Soul

To connect

 

I am

I am an American with

Parents who came from

Somewhere else

 

To be an American

Means that someone

In your family history

Came from somewhere

Else

 

Why do I connect

With you

With strangers

To talk about your

Interests

To offer

Resources

Support

To offer Mentorship

Provide

Life changing

Conversation

To connect

You with others

With similar

Interests

So that you can

Pursue your interest

With like minded

Hearted

Souls

To be on your journey

With someone else

Who understands

You

Who feels

What you have

Felt

Is something

That does not

Need to be communicated

Through words

As you have both

Experienced pain

Suffering

Oppression

Depression

 

I want you

I want to

Feel love

Openness

Compassion

Trust

Respect

Healing

I want to

Nourish

My soul

By healing my

Inner child

To be their for children

As they

Experience

Our

Common

Experiences

 

It stems from parents

Who did not

Know how to

Parent

It is not about

Blame

It is about

Understanding

It is about

What we need to learn

To parent

Our children

In a way that

Does not traumatize

Them

 

To allow them to

Learn

From mistakes

From failure

Failing fast

Failing often

Learning fast

Learning

How to learn

To learn by doing

To take chances

To allow them

To get hurt

To feel pain

To get up

To be resilient

To have grit

Qualities that

One needs to

Recover

To
