Morning Inspiration

Lessons we learn from painful pasts

Threaten to make us shatter like glass

And pierce holes in our souls

That if left to gape will tear us from the inside out.

Like crystals freshly cut

With points that draw outlines

On an earth where everyone is sharp

We are precious but unknown unless someone tells us so.

Water dripping clear through air

Sustaining life

Ending the bitterness by nourishing

The dry earth trampled by years of trying to live.



About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: My literature blog: NMx
