Society Crumbling

Standard

I know I made plans to do a different post today, but in all honestly it isn’t ready at all. So instead I am going to post a new poem I wrote this morning. Hope ya’ll don’t mind.

Society Crumbling

Written by Megan Riot Matthews (c)

 

This body was never meant to be held down

Or pushed down the cattle rows with prods

This mind was never created to be controlled

Or cut to pieces by those filled with jealousy

This heart was meant to be broken

But not shattered and left to cut my insides

This soul was never made to be put in a box

Or stifled and muted turning it gray

This person stands before you with a bleeding heart

It still pumps while it sits in her hands

The shards of glass are slicing pieces away

As the blood drips from her finger tips

Her feet become covered and stained

By the pack of bull shit lies this world thrives on

Tears and blood, they mix together

As society watches, they cheer for more

This body was always meant to be more

More than an actress for your pleasure from my pain

So she stands in awe of the desires around her

To wait and watch as she breaks and falls

Wordy Saturday!

Standard

I have always loved words. Words seem to be more powerful than anything. A simple word could make someone smile, laugh, cry, mad, and even destroy someone’s mental state. My Aunt, also a lover of words, has always made it a point to give new words and definitions when she speaks. Something I have always admired. Like my Aunt, I love to find words in different languages and I also really enjoy finding funny words with amazing meanings. I also dive into names. I like learning the reason behind the name. So, today I have 6 words to share. Six words I find interesting, funny, or just plain awesome.

Fard: Verb; to apply cosmetics to your face. This is hilarious.

Redamancy: Noun; The act of loving the one who loves you; a love returned in full. This words just sounds romantic.

Morosis: Noun; The stupidest of stupidest. Perfection.

Whelve: Noun. To bury something deep; to hide. Love this word.

Sillage: French. Noun. The scent that lingers in the air, the trail left in the water, the impression made in space after something or someone has been and gone; the trace of someone’s perfume. So beautiful.

Gleed: Noun. A glowing coal. Just plain cool.

Are there any words you love or just can’t stop saying? Let me know!

Things are being loved. People are being used.

Standard

 I woke up and made some coffee and of course, my usual morning ritual, got on Pinterest for inspiration. I find so many cool things when I am looking for inspiration. And today, I woke up with this need of poetry to read and fall in to. So, there I lay in my bed curled up with my beautiful furbaby pit bull and look for the right emotions. I found quite a few for a project I am working on (to be announced at a later date) and then came across this one from John Green, Looking for Alaska. 

This hit home for me. I have been in multiple conversations about the society we live in with different generational people. 

When asked, ‘which one would bring love into your heart; things or people?’

To be honest, I wasn’t too surprised to hear both answers. I grew up in a home with a mother who was always more focused on money and getting the newest and best. As some might say, she is a spending whore . She would spend money on things she thought she needed, wanted, or had to have. And she never really spent money on the family unless it was Christmas or birthdays

I should mention that even if I don’t get along with my mother, I am grateful for how I was raised and all the things she did do for me.

Back to the original reason for this post. Ha.

I have also met both men and women who have chosen love for things over people. Money, cars, bling, clothes, huge house, and all the superficial things you can think of.

I am a firm believer of loving people over things. Now, when I refer to things; I mean items and objects not animals or nature. We were created to love others and take care of this earth that we are on and all that comes with it. We should be honorable over the things that were created to be used as well as using integrity with people.

Some where, we got lost and chose to love that big flat tv screen, that Lamborghini, the diamonds on celebrities, the clothes in the magizines instead of focusing on loving those around us. 

Let be real, when we leave this earth and become one with the dirt and worms; and our souls/spirits go to the other side (however you believe) … what are you taking with you? Nothing but your memories and heart. 

We should stop focusing on what we WANT over the NEED to connect. At some point, I hope more and more people will realize how amazing life is when you stop focusing on the things we were MEANT to use and the people who were MEANT to be loved.

I’m curious, how do you feel about this subject?

Poem # 1

Standard

It has been a while since I have been able to pen some poetry. Poetry has always been my favorite form of writing. Reading poetry has always been a way for me to let loose the feelings in my mind. So, be kind, this is my first poem that I am posting in quite a few years.

The light sky blue roof of our world

It slowly began to shade me in darkness

The clear day with a shinning sun

The gray black clouds slowly took over

The warm wind turned ice cold

My skin was covered in bumps

My hair was standing up

I could feel the sadness settle down

Over, around, and under me

The ground was no longer stable and hard

It was soft and sink able

The mud suctioned my bare feet

Pulling me deeper into the pit

The tears streamed down my face

As the last of the light faded away

I was stuck

Alone

Left to fend for myself

I burrowed deeper and laid defeated

Random Monday!

Standard

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a lovely Monday! I woke up feeling very proactive this morning and decided to get some SHIT done! After some coffee from my french press and a long hot shower, I made a to do list and then actually threw it away. Ha, this never happens!

FIRST THINGS FIRST

I got on pinterest for some essential oil roller ball recipes. I recently just got in some super cute ones from amazon, they are metallic and colorful. I’ve been itching to use them. I made only three, ones I felt were needed.

  1. Sleepy Blend 15 drops of both Lavender and Frankincense and rest Coconut oil
  2. Headache Helper 10 drops Peppermint, 6 drops Lavender, 5 drops Frankincense, and rest Coconut oil
  3. Opening emotions 4 drops Lavender,3 drops Orange, 3 Frankincense, 4 Etsher Annointing Oil, and rest Coconut oil

(These blends are made with Eden Garden’s oils and put in a .5 ml bottles)

         Got any blends you enjoy? Share them!

Second thing I did…

With all my depression and anxiety, plus living with someone else, I’ve been feeling kind of blah when I am home. I decided to cleanse my home of all negative energy with some sage. I love the smell of sage. I immediately feel better when I smell that scent. I also always feel more open to positive energy after I cleanse my home, pups, and self. And as I watch the smoke glide out the window, I feel more welcoming of positive energy.

Do you Sage or cleanse? Tell me your ritual!

After cleaning up the house and doing some laundry, I am now ready to relax and read Lolita. I even got some good writing in this morning! *Kudos to me* 

I love these day where I feel total motivation and no dark raining cloud is following me around.

Have a great rest of your Monday!

Updated Scary Movie List! (Seen this week)

Standard

I LOVE scary movies and even more so during October. I know I’ve already done a post about horror movies and listed a few I had seen. If you see a few repeats, my bad.


Would You Rather…. Although I enjoyed the intent of this movie, I didn’t find it that scary.


Carrie (Old and new school versions)… I have always loved the book and movie CARRIE by Stephen King. I did watch both. I watched the older version on my own and the newer version with my younger brother who has never heard of Carrie. He enjoyed the movie and we both agree, this is a great Halloween movie.


Hush… I choose this one because not only is it a horror movie, but it’s a horror movie about a writer. It was entertaining to watch because you get to see the attacker play with her once he finds out she deaf.


Have you watched any real good horror movies recently? Let me know and I’ll watch!

Writing Advice!

Standard

I have been seriously slumming on my writing. I am either incredibly blocked or empty. So….

Writers!

Can you give me some helpful tips, hacks, prompts, websites and anything that helps you get motivated, unblocked, or filling you with ideas.

There is never any bad advice!

Thanks!
