Notes to Myself Poem

Karina Ruvalcaba, Creative Arts Editor


By Branden Peralta

Dear soul,

Do not fear isolation

For being alone

Is the key

To being free


Dear Me,

Do not be afraid of the dark

The light shows you what’s there

But the dark shows you what could be


Dear self,

Do not love

Those who won’t

You bring on your own pain

Yourself, you cannot help
