Humanity Pleads Perfection

If while our lives compete

silence stands beyond our wares.


Pre-disposed to finding value

in a fragile state of mind.


We dig humanity, its pitfalls

suggested to be given advocacy.


Wanting to forge forward in valor

a calculated appraisal of possibility.


When suggestion speaks necessarily

give allowance no matter scrutiny.


Find your peace in the beauty of time,

for this or ever complication subside.


We are resilient in a time driven desire

to find peace among masses the same.

Monster, Depart

Cherice Moralez

Cherice Moralez













I am judging you

trust me, I hate you right now.

Can you imagine the wrath,

the thousands whose lives you have


In my eyes,

you are a monster,

your look, your glance, your eyes,

all remind me of evil.

I would open the door to watch you go away,

forever, I don’t really care.


I do weep for her,

for all of her friends,

for so many of her peers,

for everyone you have taken for granted,

with an arrogant desire to defile

that truly innocent,

that only delightful,

her ever so vulnerable life.


to Cherice Moralez

I bid you adieu with no fanfare for your monster.


You, monster, are an unnamed evil reality
