Hello's are really just a beautiful blend of doubtful and joyful anticipation. They can be the start of something so new, and so exciting. But they can also be the beginning of something that's going to cause a lot of heart ache in the future. Since I've moved to university, I've experienced both these hello's.
Goodbyes are strange things, bittersweet, if you will. They’re filled with the remnants of laughter and sweet memories made, but also the heartache of the distance to come. Sometimes when you say goodbye, you simply don’t know when you’re going to say hello again. So, to my loving Jelly Fam, until we meet again, here's goodbye.
While I’ve been gone for a few months, I really dealt with writers block, insecurities and a lot of misplaced emotions.

Disclaimer: This poem is specifically regarding catcalling and is in no means about anyone but those who cat call and make women - or any one - feel uncomfortable and worthless. It is however, from a woman's point of view as that is what I can truly attest to best.
Morality. Justice. Wrong or right. We often question these things and argue about the one right answer, but maybe it’s time we realize that there isn’t just one right answer.
In all of our lives, at some point, some one, has made us feel like our words and our opinions don’t matter. It’s a universal feeling of feeling unappreciated, unwanted and insignificant, so we apologize for caring and quickly catch ourselves before our opinions blurt them selves out! That needs to stop! My words matter and so do yours, let them be heard!
It's really easy to judge people, or question their choices without knowing their problems and struggles. I recently found out about a struggle of a friend of mine, and it brought us closer together. That moment inspired me to write this poem.
