Poem & Illustration by Pea Medina
Acrylic Paint on 12"x 24" Canvas

Sometimes (awake) I face the pane
and spy the calming rain. 
I'd wonder if this sudden reign 
has only come in vain. 
I'd strain; I'd refrain 
from fear of falling weak.
Then butterflies 
from eyes so bright
defeat my sleep. 

With no clue whatsoever 
who could ever explain these how's,
I luckily sat there, patiently
beneath this midnight power. 
It wasn't very dark, although 
it was the mid-night hour 
when our minds are out there 
wandering leaving wandering souls devoured
and I said: 
"stare at your reflection 
like you're staring into brightness."
Faced a dimly-lit mirror, 
"greatness (patient) waits to bite this..."
Now, my fears allowed me to write this 
so my voice can try and recite this, 
so that wonderful dreams and what lovers won't see
make an impact enough to ignite this.
If you like this, then heaven excites this;
If awakened, you'd never despise this.
Our thrones and agility naturally grows
when our mental ability rises, 
but the sky is where her high is. 
Anyone's in the being that mine's in? 
Are you blind? Is... lack of kindness
raising numbers in crisis like time is? 
Is this temporary, is it timeless?
The pollution will alter our mindset. 
Could we ever abuse, or get used to these blues 
if some mindlessness leads to deny this? 

So, I close my eyes
and I find this...
alarm, only goes off when the time is...
to give care to my own with such wonderful words
and just pray that ONE SOUL could enlighten.

To Dream... The Impossible Dream?

"It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve and all bad things are easy to get"  - Confucius 
          It was always this kind of rhetoric that I ignored as it was repeatedly recited to me in attempts to engrave wisdom into a child who had yet to experience life. I was more so trying to figure out the mysterious things. The human-like features of "Papa Dios" (God) and what those powers the elders spoke of entailed drove my curiosity through the roof. While growing up into the woman I am today, I often wondered why I'd spend countless nights wondering about something that was promised to never physically be seen until death came and we had to follow that light, not realizing that faith is something that must grow from within and we must possess inside of us without the need to constantly verify its existence. I then learned to channel and apply that energy towards my des…


In my mind i have a Visual
Of all of my residuals The mess that i have made Love CAN be individual!
I never try to escape it I try to cast no fears And every time I fall again
My soul just drowns in tears.

I wear my claws out on my sleeves So you could See it coming And don't you hide Behind those eyes Or think that you'll be running. I don't relate to evil But the world is far from safe, And til I head back home I need a love I could embrace
One with good intention, One with no expectation. One that results happiness And much consideration. A love so strong it's concrete An abstract work of art, An accident engraved itself Directly in my heart.
My heavy thoughts - apocalyptic They hide inside These thoughts so cryptic It's far from normal, Destiny brought this It's project lovebot, MY synopsis

With Love,


#WhinByAnyMeans #Artsy Event Performing "My Dear" (Mind Over Matter) at Mimosa Lounge

First off, I'd love to thank the ENTIRE 
Whin Committee
For introducing me to a new world of performing arts. I have NEVER in my life touched  a stage before, but I feel like after last thursday, it may have been the start to something amazing.  As long as I can openly share my thoughts, strengths, and weaknesses through spoken word with the world, the feeling is prodigious. I'm not going to lie, I was the most nervous I had been since I was in labor almost three years ago. Something interesting happened though. The butterflies suddenly turned into wings that lifted me up into the clouds, into a much higher place. 
I did mess up, a couple of times (oh well.) But overall I think it was a pretty good turn out. 
But this video is dedicated mostly to all my
the ones who leave me comments, read my poems from DAY 1, and  continue to be the reason why I share my passion for writing which has flourished into a dream to recite 
Spoken Word Poetry. 
I love you all, and her…

Song of The Week - "Number Two" By Chadd Downing

I've been listening closely to this amazing artist from Trenton, NJ, Chadd Downing. I'm in love with several tracks on his mixtape "PMFL" but this "Number Two" track produced by Hannibal King is just what the doctor ordered. For a hip hop/rap loving poetry enthusiast like myself, it captivates the essence. Take a quick listen and tell me what you think. Then, feast your ears to the rest of his dopeness on
