Day 365: This is it. The end. 2015 was hard. Honestly, most days I didn't want to continue this project. There wasn't a lot of happy this year, but I pushed through and made myself focus on one thing that put a smile on my face each day. With the struggles my family and I have been through these last few years 2016 has got to bring something better. All i can do is continue to grow, learn, and love. Happy New Year, everyone! #HappyNewYear #2015 #2016 #365DaysOfHappy #HappyGoals #Fin IG-AsiaAneka

BLM

Bodies of the innocent lying in the streets.
Left for dead.
Another day. Another hashtag.
Cities left in ruins.
Kings and Queens stripped of their crowns.
Lives lost for nothing.
Innocence tarnished by false narratives.
Voices of the outraged go unheard.
Everyday battles of peoples black and brown.
Still we fight.
Marching for a true freedom.
A revolution begins.
Together we stand.
Today we want change.
Equality is due justice.
Restless although the fight.
Still, even still, we come together for what’s right.

Found an old journal that I got from an aunt on my 18th birthday. There’s a #poem I wrote along the outside of the moon design. “The many moons and stars of life make me a believer. A believer in destiny. A believer in triumph.” #amwriting #WritersOfInstagram #InstaWriters #instapoet #PoetsOfInstagram #writing IG: Asia_Aneka_Writes

What Kinda Love I Got?

Am I able to love?
Am I acceptable of love?
Loving myself proves difficult.
Loving others seems impossible.
Am I worthy of it?
Most would say “Yes, everyone is.”
That I am not so sure.
I’ve broken hearts as well as glue together the pieces of my own.
I leave unfazed.
Unaware of any destruction.
All emotions tucked away.
Actions that come from a place of hurt.
How can I love when I don’t know what it feels like?
Am I not capable?
I crave the very thing I do not know.
Not knowing if my heart is as cold as my touch.
I want to know love.
I want to know well enough to give it.
What kinda love I got?
I’ve got the want for passion.
I just may not have the heart.
Not yet.

Good Riddance, 2015

It’s already December. 2015 went by entirely too quick. This year I took on a project (sort of) by posting a picture a day of things that made me happy. I called it my “365 Days of Happy”. With the year coming to a close, although I started this project of happy, 2015 was a tough year for my family and I. Looking back, this year was probably harder on my family than for myself. My hardest year so far was 2013, but still 2015 for almost everyone I knew was difficult. The way that I am I know that I can see the hard times more than the good. It’s more obvious to see the bad when it outweighs the good. I started thinking to myself what my best years of the past decade were. Once I sat down to really think about it I’ve had equally bad and good years between 2005-2015.
        2005 for me was a pretty decent year. In the past decade I have some years that are neither good nor bad, but there are events that stick out for me. 2005 was definitely one of those years. That…

Day 337: This was so amazing. The cast was amazing. Don't even get me started on the singing. Damn near caught the holy ghost on a few songs. And for it to be her first acting gig, Shanice brought it. Uzo was a shining star as always. Oh and Elijah could get it, but that's whatever. #TheWiz #2015 #365DaysOfHappy #HappyGoals IG-AsiaAneka

Day 336: I've been telling myself that I need to let go of things out of my control. There's no point in it. No need ruining my health over dumb stuff that doesn't matter. It's a work in progress, as is everything. #2015 #365DaysOfHappy #HappyGoals IG-AsiaAneka

She Wore The Prettiest Blue

She wore the prettiest blue.
The prettiest blue seen behind clear eyes.
The kind of blue to rival the darkest skies.
This blue that creates a storm inside.
The kind of blue her smile can’t hide.
She wrapped herself in the prettiest blue.
Wrapped so tight that she could no longer feel.
Still underneath there are wounds that will never heal.
Wounds so deep that most would crumble.
Somehow they’ve made her seem humble.
She drowned in the prettiest blue.
Overcome by an emotional sea.
Hoping that with this she’d be free.
The type of free that would wash the pain away.
Instead everything inside of her started to decay.
While the turmoil was at at a constant rage.
Those feelings she always kept caged.
All you saw was a girl wearing the prettiest blue.
