Embrace Imperfections

for perfect they are.

Everyone searches for


But Why?


Perfection is boring.

Perfection is glossed over.

Perfection is subjective.


May not exist.


It’s the imperfections that

make it exciting.

Imperfections make it stand out.

Those imperfections are

what the world needs to see.

They shine and glow

with light.

A light, that only those

that make them have.


Some search for Perfection,

But, NOT I…

I open myself to


I show them to the world!


Embrace Imperfections

for perfect they are.



Share your Art

A person’s art is unique to them.

It changes with their life.

Each day it can look different than the next.


There is always a part of their soul

that shines through it.

Showing the world…

how they see it.

The more they share it

the truer to self they become.

Their Art lets a light,

only they have,

shine in this world.

With their Art,

their light,

they help others find theirs.

They help them find who they are.

By sharing their souls

with the world…

They help others to shine their light

and share their soul with the world.

What is your Art?

Are you sharing it?

If your not,

quit holding back in fear.

Let go!

Share your soul so that others may have the courage to do the same.

The Other Side

This poem just came out of me the other day… it is written for all, to hopefully give some hope in a time of heavy crazy energy!! I love you all and in the words of someone amazing… We Got This!!
The Other Side
The world is vibrating.
Well, I guess the world is always vibrating.
However, Today the Vibration is heavy,
Today feels like we are trying to swim to the other side,
The other side of this pandemic,
The other side of the unknown.
But the water is getting thicker;
We are starting to move slower;
Dodging this and that and that and this…
The fog is rolling in and the other side is disappearing.
It is hard to see the light, hard to keep going…
Heavy, Thick, Unknown, Vibrating, suffocating…. Energy…
I CAN’T give up; I need to trust.
I need to trust and KNOW that the other side is there.
The other side is always there!
I have seen it; I just need trust in it…
I will keep swimming, tread water and take a break if needed.
I will let go of the fear or the unknown…
I will trust in the light, at the other side of the tunnel.
It IS there, even if it is unseen at this time.
I am here, vibrating with the world… Breathing…
Wait… I can breathe, that is easy, I will just breathe.
Keeping breathing…In..Out…In..Out…
I am getting lighter.
The energy is getting lighter.
Keep breathing,
Keep trusting,
Keep moving through the water.
The other side is there
I AM moving across the water!
AND breathing
Each moment passes and a new moment is here!
I GET to be here,
Learning to trust in myself and the energy around me.
In this moment, I trust, I believe, I know that if I keep swimming, if I keep breathing…
I will make it.
The fog is lifting.
I can see it.
The Other Side.


Yesterday morning on the way to work,
the world looked as if it were weeping.
It is November and the sky is sobbing.
The world is grieving for what was,
for what is
for what isn’t.
People are suffering,
they are scared,
sad and angry.
People are struggling financially;
with physical and mental health.
This morning I am weeping
for the people who need to weep but can’t.
The thing about crying
is that it cleanses the soul.
Rain and water help to wash things away,
It helps them to feel new again.
The world needs to weep;
WE need to weep.
It is the first step to acceptance of the moment.
This moment is exactly what it is,
And the next exactly just that.
We can’t take away the suffering,
nor the sadness.
We CAN however,
show the world KINDNESS and LOVE.
We need to UNDERSTAND each other
more than ever.
Understanding heals.
Understanding shows,
you took the time to think and process.
You put yourself in their shoes.
You put love into your thoughts,
Even if you don’t agree with them.
Agreement does not equal understanding.
Today the sun is shining,
the world looks fresh and new.
It felt what was needed.
It moved on.
The world does not dwell in guilt.
It weeps and then shines.
We need to learn from this.
And take this sun shiny day
to start to heal.
We need to heal
from the grief
of what is,
what isn’t.
We need to let ourselves feel.
We can heal by showing others
love and
We can heal by showing OURSELVES
love and
Today the sun is shining
and the world looks fresh and new.
Today I show myself and those around me
Today I shine with light like the sun.
Today I start to heal.

Hello!! Whoever you are…

For most of my life, I have wanted to share my writing, art, and thoughts with the world. When I was a struggling 15-year-old, the first time I discovered my ability and love of writing was sitting on my bed after a night with friends. I was feeling lost as most fifteen-year-olds do, and I decided for some reason to pick up a pen and start writing poetry. I wrote two poems that night in red pen on lined paper. I wish I had these poems today, but sadly they are lost in the paper trail of my life. A few days later, i picked up these poems and looked at them for the first time. I was taken back by how real, raw, and good they were. They really spoke to me and described the feelings I was feeling on the inside. If I am to be honest, which is what this website is all about, I didn’t remember writing the words that were on those pages. They came from a place outside of myself. I have often and still often write things down and then wonder where those words come from… but… This is writing for another time.

I am excited to have a space to talk about all things life. It will be real and raw and sometimes spiritual, sometimes artistic, sometimes random but always honest and truthful. I often have these epiphanies and then forget them an hour later if I don’t write them down. Sometimes I write them down, but do nothing with them. Finally, at the age of 38, they are going to get written down. I have a space to share what I know, what I think, what I feel, and my general ramblings. You have a choice to read them.

My name is Monica. I have taught kids for many many years, and when I was teaching younger kids, they would often call me Momica. So years later Momicaintheraw was born. I thrive on honesty and rawness. I love to see people as their raw selves and try to bring more of my raw self forward. There is a beauty in the raw unpolishedness of things, people, places, thoughts, etc. And so finally was born. Enjoy!! Or don’t.  Just work towards being who you are meant to be and offering the gifts you are meant to offer to the world.
