Tapestry
by Oakley Weber

May stick and stones break my bones
but words will always pick me apart

I was told, I'll grow to finery
becoming a grown tapestry
Yet, all I have to show are frayed edges
I've become fraught
no longer taunt
My will sags like the loose threads
I see no value in reweaving

Close
by Cash Olds

You are within arms reach,
Close enough to share the luring smell of your perfume,
close enough always, to bathe in your presence.
No more farther than a drunkard to his drink, you are never farther than a glance away.

Ruin.
desolate ruin is my nature
pain is it's very essence.
I've ripped apart yours,
as well as my very own heart.

connect
by Joe Curry

and i told myself to breathe
because you told me to breathe
and i said to myself i am worth it
because you taught me so
i looked at your beautiful boy in the mirror
and my love for me grew nearer

The Struggle
by Samson Oloto

They told us to grow
Told us to be men
Responsibilities abound
All you have to meet
We wake up at dawn
Eyes heavy from a lack of sleep
We enter the streets
With millions of people like us
All in a race, and a constant struggle
To meet up with expectations

Give Chance To Grow
by Rafiq Pasha

Let there be no restrictions
let there be no limitations
for the poor and needy.

For skint if any opportunity arise
let them reap the surprise
just support the weak and weedy.

Under the shadow of poverty
these beings exhibit honesty

625 days and counting
by Grace Frost

365 days we are celebrating you,
Life redefined in 2 pink lines,
625 days this love is brand new.

January to October time to grow,
Impatience is a family trait, 12/09/21,
365 days we are celebrating you.

10pm, 1am and 3am feeds,
Fatigued but morning comes again,

The Ville
by Corey Alpough

The Ville, established in 1948.
Despite the violence it was a place that made me great.

Killers, robbers, crackheads too.
Wasn’t really scared cause that’s all we knew.
Mother, Father, Auntie’s and Uncles,
They was raised in the Ville like a lion in the jungle.
Big family so they came with a rumble,
bad influences that can make you stumble,
maybe even crumble.

Rebirth
by baby panda

i guess you think you know pain
until it shows you a different face
a broken bone, a haggard face in the mirror you cant bear to look at

a heartbreak you barely survive
(i swear i thought i was dying)

i guess you think you know love
until the day you realise you dont
and you have to learn it

On Being Reinvented
by baby panda

it's been a long time coming
i finally found myself and
i think thats worth rejoicing

i may have a hard life ahead of me
i may not know how my story will end
but right now i have the cool morning mist
right now i have the warm sun on my skin
right now i have hot meals and hot showers
right now i have everything i need
