Afternoon Haikus: Aging Gracefully
Fail I surely will.My steppingstone to Success.Pain I bear with grace…
Shame,How faith isn’t talked about enough,Within a space meant to grow the mind of a child.Are they in a classroom,Or,A limbo with statistics painted on the walls about,How likely their failures are?Scarred,Is the heart of a young soul,More often than it is swayed to follow dreams foretold,By the Universe everywhere they go,Whether it’s a favorite...

Freewrite #24: Forsaken. So What?
Rising to higher states of mind,While walking all around a city making me lose mine. Poverty following me,Like a reaper admonishing me for demolishing each demon keeping the Former alive... Will the staircase to my ultimate success be built by bricks bulging out of my pocket?Or,The skeletons I leave behind when finally reaching the top... Continue Reading →
What do I do being overwhelmed by several emotions? Write it all away until I create an ocean of my own, And claim Trauma as the culprit... What do I listen to when beginning my day hearing echoes ensuing violence upon my soul!? As I seek peace amongst everyone who has ripped me into pieces... Continue Reading →
Shadowz Of Death
Lights dwindle as the Shadow enters my room while getting ready for bed, Quietly, Stoic in manner. Alerting me of Its arrival by darkening my atmosphere with all kinds of nightmares... "What does It want this time?" I ask myself... My recent success and riches? My iron will for Commitment? My eternal ambition to remain... Continue Reading →
Self Made? Never.
Being "self-made" is a dream in the eyes of an outcast. No support around, Just you, A vision and a pen along with a pad helping you endure life when it hits the fan, While conjuring the future you're so desperate to see. No friends. But, An Earth full of trees, Flowers and plants releasing... Continue Reading →
