RAD poems by a RAD gal.

A Trip Of Poetry
Niesha Radovanic

will you wait?

i want to kiss you back

but i'm still trying

to kiss the roots of my own stem

watering this flower with tears

still waiting on her to bloom.

puff puff, no pass

living in the sea of trees

filling my lungs

with sativa

so i can feel at peace.

i'll make it home soon

a mapquest

of stretchmarks

across my belly

i am connecting the dots

until i learn to

love this destination,

all the way home.


in a day

you gave me

a story

by night

you gave me

my favorite book.

garden goodbyes

if you leave,

leave tenderly.

wiggle yourself

out of these roots.

don't say goodbye to

my flowers,

they have already

lost enough petals.

this is my home

when they say you feel like home,

smile, welcome them

into your garden of youth,

but if they start plucking

your petals off

tell them it is time

they plant their own garden

someplace else.


when you find someone,

who can love you

like you love you,

thank the universe,

for true love is



i wonder

how i can be

both happy and

absolutely petrified

to fall in love.

afternoon showers

i watched the rain.

admired how quickly

i saw the plants

smile with green.

i wondered what

i would look like

if i watered myself

in what i need

to grow.

compliment or insult?

i remember the boy

who told me

"wow, you look great,

you used to not have a neck"

his words sliced through my throat

like mirror glass

i could not let out a cry

but now i will

let out a roar

that will shake the cruelty

out of his bones.


the sun peeks through

my window blinds.

the birds hum

their offerings

the wind brushes

weight off my shoulders

in between puffs of tree.

Erykah Badu

vibrates my solar plexus,

mornings like this

remind me why

i am alive,

there is work to contrive.

there is only one you

you are universal stardust

the universe needed you on this planet

isn't that enough?

enough for you to keep spreading your light,

thru mother natures fortress.

9 Things Tall People Are Tired Of Hearing

Yep. The weather is fine up here... I've totally never heard that before.


Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
