Updated: 7 days ago

Below is a portrait silhouette/double exposure photo project that she recently completed in her Studio in Media Arts class to accompany her poem.


I am a writer and a daughter 

I wonder what my life has in store 

I hear the voices telling me I can’t 

I see the doubt in their eyes

I want my dreams and aspirations to be fulfilled 

 

I pretend that I’m okay when in reality 

I feel dark and confused 

I like to think I’m In touch with my feelings 

I worry that I won’t be enough 

I cry when I’m alone 

 

I understand that life is hard 

I say I’m calm but inside I’m outraged 

I feel like a fireball of burning flesh 

I dream of the perfect fantasy of a life were these feelings disappear 

I try my hardest to fight these emotions but can’t 

I hope one day these emotions can fade and I can live up to my name and legacy 

 

I am a writer and a daughter
