Calling out the rebel in me.

As you can tell I’m trying to implement more fashion posts on to my blog because dressing up is also one of my big loves in life next to poetry of course. So a little bit about my outfit. The shirt is just a plain shirt with a Jameson logo. I actually got it from a Jameson party in my city and also I love me some Jameson every now and then. The shorts are as old as the day is long. They actually belonged to my mom, she used to wear them when she was young and then she gave them to me and I made shorts from them. The brand is Levi’s. The jacket is from Zara. I actually thrift shopped this jacket, as well as the shoes, and I love it because can go with a lot of my outfits. It’s really my style. The bandana was purchased off of Ebay because… it was cheap and I am broke and stylish on a budget hahaha

You know you can check out my daily outfits and typewriter poetry on my Instagram @luna.theblog

Also, you guys I got my first paycheck today and I couldn’t be happier. I worked before and got paychecks before but this one is so special to me because it’s the first time I am doing a job I actually really like and where I can use my knowledge of languages. It just makes me happy.

I don’t want to like be annoying but my Poetry Bar inbox is as empty as my bank account was yesterday so guys you know the drill. The e-mail is poetrybar1@gmail.com

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

Poem #224

You sit in silence on the terrace sipping your coffee.
You try to convince yourself that fresh air will
stop this feeling of suffocation.
Haven’t you realized by now it’s all in your head?

Positivity Press #38 – Soul Positivity

“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress,
simultaneously.” – Sophia Bush

I don’t know how many times I’ve read about how you should feel
comfortable in your own body, how you should appreciate your flaws and
embrace them, how we’re all not perfect and we don’t need to be.
Everyday I see more and more people being real and true to themselves
and they are fierce and wild and free and I want to be like them.
For a long time I didn’t realise that being like them ultimately meant
being me.
That is the magic about them: there is none, except for the magic of
being themselves. Which is pretty damn powerful if you ask me.
I also acknowledged how afraid I can be to try something new and it
got pretty clear to me that I didn’t even know who I was without that
fear.
Because I was so swayed by people’s judgements and how they would
react to what I was doing. I wasn’t only afraid, I just didn’t know
what I wanted because there was no room for me to try and figure it out.
Ultimately it wasn’t about the people surrounding me but how I let
them affect me and I really had to learn how to be on my own for a
while.
I realised 3 things.
The real people will stay in your life and support you on your way.
Not everyone will accept or like everything you do. And thats SO fine.
Because we are all different and as long as you love what you do and
who you are you have everything you need.
We are all our own person and we are not depending on anyone but it’s
nice to surround yoursel with good people.
It is so important to be with people who accept you for who you are,
who are kind and loving and supporting.
People you can exchange good energy and motivation with. Who make you
feel more powerful after you spent time with them.
But let’s get back to the topic of this.
Body positivity is already a huge thing in our society nowadays. I
love how the trend is going towards being more real. I think we should
all be more pure and true to ourselves and also accept that life isn’t
perfect.
No one is always happy and that is fine because we need changes in our
lives, we need sadness to feel happy again.
It’s like a sunny day after a long period of rain. Or even the other
way around, the big storm after a heatwave (love and hate that at the
same time though because it scares me a little bit).
Let’s embrace the storms in our lives. Let’s talk about how afraid we
were about the lightnings and the thunder that shook us.
Let’s speak about the calm before the storm, being in denial of
something, the state of depression we  were in before we got where we
wanted to be. Let’s embrace our weaknesses.
Let’s be soul positive. We need to accept our souls, not only our bodies.
I think it all starts within us. Our bodies are the mirror of how we
feel inside. So we should worry less about how we look and more about
how we feel.
I want depths and real conversations. I’m not interested in people who
have ‘it all figured out’.
I want to see insecurities, flaws and realness.
The world is ready to be happy and kind and weak.
Let that storm wash away your barriers.
Have a lovely day.

Xx

An active sex life

My friend has a very active sex life.
He says he is practicing for his wife,
When i beseech him about his sex life.

My friend has a very active sex life.
He is a male that likes to mate for fun
Early in the morning before the sun.

He says, at this point in time he wants a son.
When he loves the daughters of other sons
To practice to make perfect for his wife.

When i beseech him about his sex life
My friend says he has an active sex life.
He says his penis was like a dull knife-

He has sharpened over the years
In the vaginas of ladies in tears
Because they want to be his wife.

My friend has a very active sex life.
He says he is practicing for his wife.

When he beseeches after my sex life,
I say I’m saving myself for my wife!

When he isn’t busy gathering dust in the library, then he is most likely writing some poetry(some of which may or may not be fictional)

The Burning Song

Read it as if you rap


It’s all getting pretty crazy
It started making me dizzy
I keep hearing every then & now
I did something bad & very wrong
Even though we agreed upon
That I’ll be cool & calm
But I failed to follow
I was supposed to swallow
Irritation & frustration
Dissertation on relation
Confrontation & aggression
Patterns taking over
I’m losing the ground

OMG
Seems I’ve gone crazy
So now here I’m again
To take the blame
And a pinchful of shame
Facing the consequences
Of the sequences of mishaps
Perhaps I am the only one
Who’s all over the place
But I simply can’t stand
In one by one space
It seems I’m that crowd
Suffocated & passing out

I hear you loud & clear
You tell me I’m getting there
Where I don’t really care
Don’t even give a damn
But you don’t understand
I can’t always be tamed
Look first in the mirror
Before you even quiver

Now it’s burning high
There’s hue & cry
Emotions of rage & fear
You’re getting ready to disappear
You see me now so tall
It seems I’m changing my form
I’m this scary dragon size
Spitting fire & murder eyes
Just want you to hear me out
So I scream at you pretty loud
But the shield you’ve put on
No, you can’t hear me at all
In your eyes I’m this bloody form
But in reality I’m simply torn

You’ve been trying to tell me
I am the only one freezing
I need desperate upgrading
Coz I’m that psychopath
Losing the only true path
The person you want me to be
The new version of me
My new design won’t be mean
I might come out pretty clean
Would take the toughest hit
And some other sorts of shit
But it can’t be just me
It is the way you see
Feel the things going with me
Don’t shut the doors so rapidly

Now try to hear me out
Gonna speak a bit loud
Enough of dissing
Saying dis-dat & hissing
I might be completely wrong
But who’s always spot on
So let’s start this all over
Let’s not use no cover
You & I are this loving pair
Sometimes covered in many layers
Perhaps marinated in deep pain
But it’s just a superficial coat
We aren’t no shadow ghosts

There’s always the darker side
But look at the beautiful sight
The intense radiant light
The blue & clear sky
If I’m the one with fire
Be the water on me
If you’re that very storm
I’ll come to you with peace
Let’s be naked & true
Remove the layers & the glue
But one thing is crystal clear
If I’m this heart
Then you’ll always be the beat
So let’s start all over my dear
Coz I’m you
And you’re me

Find your indicators

We hear from life coaches and Instagram quotes that we need to identify our triggers to avoid negative and harmful behavior and situations. I do believe that’s true but there’s also something else we need to identify. Our indicators.

We live in a world where pain and struggle are being praised for no apparent reason. If you have eye bags, finish your 5th cup of coffee by 10 in the morning, always have troubled relationships you somehow feel validated in this world and I can say that I am also one to blame for this type of behavior because I do have eye bags, drink a gallon of coffee in the morning and go into one shipwreck of a relationship to the next.

Also, we became very detached from our emotional state and feelings. We just deal with negative feelings by ignoring them. We all live using the famous line “That’s just how it is”, “It’s no big deal” etc.

It’s not how it is and it is a big fucking deal.

We often ignore the notion of being in a negative, unhealthy situation just because we got used to it. We got used to feeling crappy, tired, exhausted, unmotivated… We became very mechanical in day to day life and forgot how to live and that’s why we need to find the indicators and patterns that help us realized that we are in a bad situation.

My personal indicators are smoking and writing. People who are close to me know that I have the tendency to obsessively smoke when something bad is happening to me. I tried breaking this awful habit several times but after two, three weeks, maybe even two months of not smoking something stressful happens and I just find myself buying cigarettes and looking like a chimney. As for my writing, when I put down something on paper I always read the whole thing in the end and I can sense the tone in which I wrote it and that is a strong indicator of the way I’m feeling.

Indicators are something like behavior patterns and you need to find them. When you catch yourself doing those things, repeating those patterns find the reason why and try to problem solve with logic the situation in which you are in. Indicators are mostly bad habits like smoking, drinking, binge eating etc.

I know it’s sometimes painful and hard to just get in touch with your emotions, with yourself and admitting that you are in a bad state but it’s necessary in order for you to pull yourself up and get stronger.

I hope this all made sense because I struggled with describing all of this and just find the words. Let me know in the comments what do you think and what are your indicators.
