About Me

 

My name is Mecca-Amirah, a college grad who dreams of being an author. 
22. Always smiling–

I use this blog as an outlet; to allow my thoughts, the most pure and the most wicked, to be told.  I use flowers to tell my story. With most of my poetry, I use images of flowers to accompany the writing. The reasoning behind this? I have always thought of myself as a flower and thus depict myself one in my writing. Flowers are so beautiful yet so delicately strong that it constantly fascinates me. I am still growing; my petals are plumper and my stem is strong and hopefully, that will stay. I do not use a specific style or stick to one idea–I am all over the place. There are times where I will sit down and write out what I will say–agonize over the grammar, the syntax, the rhyme scheme, and everything in between but there also times where I will be struck with inspiration and what comes out–I post it without second guessing it. A Gut-reaction, a strike of inspiration, most of my poetry is like that. I have seen a lot of modern, spoken-word poets sometimes not captioning their words and that has been an method I have taken to. I am free when I write and I hope to inspire others to learn to love themselves. 

night_blooming_cereus_by_noctella.jpgI am a blooming flower,
a night bloomer who fears the shadows
awaiting the right time to spread her petals and fly away.
But when will I find the time to grow
when I am swamped by strict rules and malicious, poisonous words?
But I will learn to juggle it all
because there are young night bloomers like me,
who need guidance and gentle hand handling their thorns and vines.

Learning to accept yourself is a challenge but aspects like: self-love, self-confidence, self-awareness, self-efficiency, will come, I promise you.
