bury me in flowers

FREE WRITING

bury me in flowers

lay a crown of crystal carnations atop my head
curl honey-colored flowers around my skin
braid delicate, purple buds into my hair
let fresh, green roots anchor me to the ground

make me into a bouquet
cover me in heather, adorn me with aster
wait for the butterflies and hummingbirds
to flock to my side and sip the sweet nectar
hidden in the budding blossoms

dusty, pink primrose sprouts from my skin
color my lips with...

Hey guys! So I am working on a series called Kingdom on a loud rn, and I was kind of wondering if some people would be willing to read the first 3 chapters and tell me what you think? My end goal is to publish it eventually, and I could use some feedback on the storyline and stuff. So, I'll link the chapters in the footnotes, and here is a bit of a summary of the story:

Us, Our World

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

Prompt: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

A billion people out there,
a single land to live.
A zillion different thoughts
and different voices we give.
But most of the time,
are they even heard?
They're just flicked away,
never considered.
Just stays grey.
Injustice and cruelty,
selfishness and greed
make agony and poverty,
no one's truly freed.
It's dismaying how humanity- what makes humans human, has almost left the chat.
But we can change that.
Because this world will...

“It is with deep remorse that I announce the death of Prince Telian,” the king declared somberly from the castle balcony, which overlooked the village. “Although he was only eleven years old, he was a promising lad and his presence will be greatly missed.”
The townspeople murmured among themselves, but the king wasn’t done speaking. “I can assure you that the death was accidental. The young prince was out on a hunting trip two days ago and had an unfortunate...

Diddly-squat,
I thought was not,
A word,
But Google proved,
Me wrong,
So now I write this poem,
Cause it's fun to say,
Diddly-squat.

And tell your sons

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

That it's okay to be a man and cry,
to free your lungs and scream.
It's okay to get scared and show it in your eyes.
It's okay to feel weak,
so sit back and release.

It's okay to be tired,
so make room and rest, 
and take down the weight of the world
and carry YOUR own instead.
It's okay to remove the mask and be freed from its lies;
that a real man NEVER cries.
Dear boy free...

Kingdom on a Cloud Chapter One (Edited) (Looking For Peer Reviews)

It’s not that bad, Brylee told herself. Perhaps if she thought it enough it would come true. She leaned closer to the mirror. No, it was that bad.
    A large purple bruise spread under her chin. It looked as if she had dipped it in paint. 
    Brylee’s mom walked in then. “Are you okay, honey? That fall looked painful.” Her eyes widened when she saw the bruise. “Oh, Brylee. Let me go get something for that.” Her...

For God so loved the World
by Olwakhe-uThando Danxa


To love is to send your son to die for a people whose “thank you” will be a nail in your hands and spit in your face.
You are your son so you feel his pain.

As you proclaim your love to them,
you will feel the weight of the wood they will hang you on thrown over your shoulders because even as they take you to kill you-
love will...
