A Kanye Kind of Monday (Poetry)

I’m starting this new thing: #MondayMusings. I’ll be sharing a poem every Monday about any and everything. It’ll help me stay consistent. Hope you enjoy!


A Kanye Kind of Monday

I approach the day the way Kanye smiles –

Like it hurts

Because it does

The haze of exhaustion sits at my eyes

And I wonder if it was worth it to marry this work, my own version of a Kardashian

I’m here now

In the sunken place

Looking at Friday on the calendar

Hoping it’ll shine its light in my eyes soon

Knowing all along

I create my best art here

So I stay a while

I'm Mariah. Jesus is my homie. I live in (and was raised in) the south. I am, as often as possible, actively grateful for my family because I understand their life giving power. Really dislike melodramatics. Really love reading and writing so much so that I aspire to be an author. What else?
