✨✍🏾Kintsukuroi – By, Maxwanette A Poetess✍🏾✨


The journey of this life has left scars,

embedded deeply within my being.


Experienced moments,

become the spider-like web of construction.


Mirrored cracks & creases,

are the consistent reminders that I lived.


I wear my battle-wounds PROUDLY,

for they’re the trophies of life continuing &

lessons learned.


As I Am,

exhibiting the freckles of time,


Honored preservation,

a reminder of the existence I bare.



I breathe & live again.

✨✍🏾I Had Forgotten – By, Maxwanette A Poetess✍🏾✨

I Had Forgotten

Within the pain,

trying one’s best to live again.

The wanting, needing,

the constant feelings.

The past fears of rejection,

blinded loves interception.

As the cold harshness,

left a bitter taste on life’s palette.

Beautiful in one’s existence,

a reminder of the Universal Purpose.

Saturated with the essence of life’s joy.

Glowing with the magnificence of Self.

(Deeply Smiles)…Oh yes, I had forgotten.
