Uniquely Rebel Flower

She is colourful, this lady, from her photos to her words to the imagery she paints in her lyricism. She’s one to blow up our village blog feed with her wild and prolific postings, but spend some time in her poetry and you’ll discover a woman who is overcoming loss and tragedy through the flow of her pen…one who is escaping sorrow with a lust for drama and life. May I present the intoxicating scribblings of a Rebel Flower:

1. State your name and location for the record:

-REBEL FLOWER
HERE IN HAWAII
From: -CALI BORN N RAISED.
VILLAGES ARE SI’UMU AND SAPALI’I
Relationship Status: -I’M SEPARATED

2. How did you find One Samoana?

-I WAS SEARCHING FOR SOME SAMOANS WHO WRITE POETRY AND ARE INTO ARTISTIC EXPRESSIONS. SO IT TOOK ME HERE. AND I LOVED IT EVER SINCE.

3. What do you love about Samoan culture?

-FAAALOALO IS THE FAOUDATION OF OUR CULTURE. WITHOUT IT, WE’D NEVER BE GROUNDED WITH THE SENCE OF RESPECT AND LOVE THAT EXISTSED WITH US FOR AGES.
Favourite Samoan Song: -SAMOA MATALSI BY: THE FIVE STARS

4. Describe your perfect, indulge-yourself meal

-MMM COOL WHIP TOPPED ON VANILLA AND STRAWBERRY SHERBERT ICE CREAM. CHERRY TO TOP IT OFF WITH A BIT OF STRABERRY FUDGE.
What you had for breakfast this morning: -CHIMICHUNGA!! YAHAAAHOOO!!
Favourite beverage: -PEPSI… AAAAAAAAND NUVO.. HEHH EHH.. *blushing*

5. You have one day to use $1,000,000 or you lose it. How do you spend it?

-I’D ADOPT 8 LIL SOLE’S, ONE PRINCESS AND AN ORCA WITH A HOUSE THAT CAN HOLD A ZOO TO SAVE SOME ANIMALS FROM SUFFERING ☺

6. You’re shipwrecked on a deserted island. What survivor skills could you provide for your crew?

-A. Do not eat jellyfish. Or fish that have spikes. Or fish that have parrot like beaks. Or that puff up like balloons.
`EHH WOOW~
B. Beware of far-off clouds that look like mountains. Look for green. Ultimately, a foot is the only good judge of land. ☺

7. 3 things you’re most proud of in your life right now

-1. ACHIEVING MY DIPLOMA
2. ENROLLING INTO COLLAGE
3. MAINTAING ANOTHER JOB
(all in one month)

8. Final thoughts and shout outs

-FIGHT A GOOD FIGHT WITH YOUR HEART BECAUSE TRUTH IS THE ENEMY TO ONES WHO DON’T KNOW YOU. NO MATTER WHAT.
Favourite inspirational quote: – “Don’t run with scissors, don’t leave the iron on, don’t cross against the light, and don’t be afraid of a broken heart.” —Lise Funderburg, writer

  3. I don’t think you will
    Ever fully understand
    How you’ve touched my life and made me who I am
    I don’t think you could ever know
    Just how truly special you are
    That even on the darkest nights
    You are my brightest star
    You’ve allowed me to experience something very hard to find
    Unconditional love that exists
    In my body soul and mind
    I don’t think you could ever feel
    All the love I have to give
    And I’m sure you’ll never realize
    You’ve been my will to live and to write
    You are an amazing person
    And without you I don’t know where I’d be
    Having you in my life
    Completes and fulfills every part of me.

  4. weo weo weoz CUZZY THIS IS REALLY KOO WHAT THEY DID FOR YOU ON THIS NOTEBOOK THING. YOU KNOW YOU GOT MY SUPPORT CUZZ AN DI LOVE YOU AND THE WORDS THAT SOMEHOW HAD SHAPED SOME OF MY TROUBLES. YOU KNOW THE MOMENTS I SHARED WITH YOU AND AL I HAD TO DO WAS READ A PIECE OF YOU AND I DRIFT INTO SLEEP, WAKE UP, READ ANOTHER PIECE, AND START MY DAY. YOU ARE MY MORNING NEWA PAPER AND COFFEE, AND MY MIDNIGHT SNACK. READING YOU INSPIRES ME TO WRITE SOMETHING, I GET JEALOUS SOMETIMES TOO, I DON’T HAVE THAT TALENT. SO DANG, POETRY HUHH??? I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHERE YOU ARE GONNA TAKE THIS WRITING, I KNOW YOU’R ALREADY HELPING THE SAMOAN YOUTH, BUT FOR SOME ODD REASON I FEEL THAT THERE WILL BE MORE.

    I LOVE YOU SO MUCH CUZZ. ALWAYS HAPPY TO SEE YOU SPREADING YOUR WORDS, KEEP ON INSPIRING 😀

  5. DIS GURR.. I LOVE THIS GURR. I DON’T KNOW ANY OTHER WORD TO DESCRIBE THE LIFE TAUGHT TO ME THROUGH HER POETRY. NOT JUST THROUGH HER POETRY, BUT HER. IF IT WEREN’T FOR WHAT SHE PAYED TO LIVE THROUGH, THERE WOULD BE NO POETRY EXISTING THROUGH HER. I BELIEVE BECAUSE OF THE PASSION, AND THE LOVE, AND DETERMINATION THAT MY PELE, THAT IS PARISH, THRIVE TO SPEAK OUT LOUD AS SHE POPULARLY SAYS, IS THE REASON WHY SHE STILL ALIVE TODAY. WITHOUT IT, I BELIEVE PARISH WOULD BE NO MORE. SHE KNOWS THE WORLD ELSE WHERE HAVE SUFFERED MORE, IT HELPED HER APPRECIATE, RE-SHAPE, AND OVERCOME ANYTHING THAT WAS THROWN AT HER IN HER WAY. I LOVE THIS GREAT PERSON, THIS GREAT WANNA-BE-LIKE HER MOTHER WOMAN, THIS HERO OF WORDS, THIS TEACHER-LIKE WITHOUT INTENTIONS, MORE OF LIKE TRYING TO SHOW TRUTH, LADY THAT PARISH IS. I AM GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR KNOWING THIS WOMAN.

  6. I HAVE TO THANK YOU HGG FOR THIS AWSOME PERSONA THANK YOU POSTED UP ON HERE OF ME ALONG WITH THE OTHER MEMBERS OF 1SAMOANA. I AM PRIVILEGED. LOL.. I HAVE TO SAY, I AM VER Y HAPPY TO BE ME IN MANY MORE WAYS THAN ONE BUT IT’S ME.

    @ WRYDAH, YOU ARE ONE I AM TOO, A FAN OF AS WELL IN YOUR WORDS WRITTEN. I’VE GROWN WITH THE PEN SINCE I WAS 9YRS OLD, I’VE TAGGED, I’VE COLLIGRAFIED THE PUBLIC WITH ALL MY DISTURBING CRIES. BUT I LEARNED APPRECIATION DURING HIGH SCHOOL, AND HAD LOVED WRITERS AND ARTISTS OF ALL KINDS WHO WRITE WITH PRECISION AND A VISION AND WHO ARE DELICATE BECAUSE OF OBSTACLES THAT DROVE THEM OR EVEN JUST THE SIMPLICITY OF THE BEAUTY OF GOD’S WORLD SINCE THAN. I AM A VERSATILE WRITER. MY STYLES COME IN WAYS MY PEN WOULD LEAD ME. ALL THAT MATTERS, IS MY TRUTH BE VOICED WHEN NECESSARY. EVEN WHEN IF I HAVE TO SCREAM ABOUT IT. I DO IT, ON PAGES, IT’S JUST ME, PEN, AND PAPER. THE REST IS IT’S OWN WORKS FROM WITHIN MY HEART AND MY SOUL STILL PUSHING ON, TO SURVIVE A WORLD WHERE LOVE IS NOW A BARELY REACHED FORM OF SPIRIT DYING IN OTHERS. IT’S STILL THERE. AND SO ARE THE WORDS THAT CRY IT, OR EVEN REJOICE IT.

    THANK YOU GUYS.. YOU SO LOVELY 🙂
