I am Silver

IMG_2991

I breathe in pollution,

Perhaps it is

The murk caused by

Judgement

.IMG_2993

I feel their scorching gazes

Upon me

And I feel my shield

Take over

IMG_2996

I want to breathe

But all I sense is disapproval

And the disappointment

Of yet another

IMG_2999

I wish I was like them

And even as I wish so

I know I’m too far

From the mundane –

IMG_3000

I am too close to

My soul,

One that believes in the

Unification of my senses

IMG_3004

I am too synchronised

With the tangled

Symphony of a cloudless

Sky, blowing a light breeze

IMG_3006

I cared and dared

To breathe in what they gave me

And I realised

I had to let go of toxic air

IMG_3007

I waited

And the judgment was back

But I felt slightly lighter

IMG_3008

I could see

I could hear

I could feel

I could smell

IMG_3010

And all I smelled was pungent

Hatred.

IMG_3011

And I hated back

IMG_3012

And I fought back

IMG_3013

And I tried

To win them back…

IMG_3014

And soon

I realised

That I am me

And I am silver, like steel.

IMG_3015

I am like them

And yet I am not.

I am like them

And yet I gleam like they do not.

IMG_3020

I realised

I do not blend in

For I will always stand out

IMG_3022

I do not appear in

Deceit

And in falsehood

IMG_3023

For I am above and beyond

IMG_3024

For I am blissful when

In synchronisation with

My soul

IMG_3025

For I am me

And

I-

IMG_3026

I do not blend

With

The

Mundane.

The Dreamcatcher Series

I visited a poor community of people close to where I live.

I asked them to hold up a dreamcatcher, so I could click a photo of them, after which I asked them what their ambitions were.

I received an interesting set of responses, from children and adults alike.

Most children wish to grow up to educate others. Most adults wish to lead a life where they are not required to work all day just to obtain the most basic form of comfortable living, such as, a safe home.

It was an incredibly touching experience, and I am now in the ideation and brainstorming stage of working towards a better future for this community and others around.
