Cycle to Mind

Indecisive Me

I am like the uncertainty between the Yin and the Yang,
The confusion amongst the Sun and the Moon.
My eyes get clouded around noon and soon I am full of blank.
"Hi, my name is Ma...Maria...Maya."
My identity is dependent on who and what I decide to be.
I snap like a threatned wolf in the middle of the woods but toss me a bone, and I transform into an abondoned cub. Confusion binds my cells together like magnets of individuality.
The waves around my island never travel the same direction.
Their varying moments make me stronger.
Bursting from experience I raise my rose buds from the broken concrete
so that they can breathe within the breeze.
As they grow, so do I.
With each breath I expand into a giant that cannot be stopped.
Stubborn looks stumble upon my broken promises and forgotten deals
until they can predict their presence.
 Decisions create me.
I have the right to change my mind.
Because if I don't, with time, my mind will change me.

Magic Carpet Ride

                                                                       Magic Carpet Ride 
                                                                               By: Maya

Who knew a light in the mist of night could illuminate the world?
You are my private Sun. 
The spaces between is you. 
I love you carry me like a magic carpet into our own "Whole New World".
Who knew connection could come as easily as our laughter. 
It has only been a moment of relief but you ease the grief with your long strides. 
The pattern of my heart wanders and hides within your presence. 
Where have you been?
In the years of life questioning and un-inspiration 
I find liberation between the freckles and your foreign words. 
Your honesty washes away the pain and torture within my heart lies. 
I memorize the crevices within your smile because I know 
the gravity of your beauty will someday fall. 
But until it does, I will wait awhile.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I had a blast spending the day surrounded with love from friends and family. 
To celebrate, my friends and I shared a coffee date. Love is oh so lovely.

A New Beginning

These last couple of days I have been in California visiting potential colleges. During my trip I was completely inspired. The aura in California is incredible! There are so many types of lifestyles and adventures available. I am so excited for the future, I feel like I can do anything!

Awake is the New Sleep

Sometimes during the night I have trouble sleeping. I move so much during the day, the opportunity to be still freaks me out sometimes...I feel like I am missing something. This is a video I made about what I do when I have trouble going to sleep. I try to calm myself with candles, tea, and maybe a good read. But still, my mind wonders. I find myself centered once again when the sunrises.
