  • Live Your Lyrics

    Bop your head, Tap your feet, Follow along, Get up out of your seat. Life is a journey, Life is a song. Play the right music, Always strum along. Compose a symphony, Play it all solo. It’s your time to thrive, Not become a hobo. It’s all an...

  • Ashes

    I watch as the wind carries the ashes of what once was and can never be again. The terror, the cynicism, the pain have all burned away. In it’s place is a seed, small and scared, unsure of what it is to become, hoping the rain and sun can find it...

  • It Has To Stop

  • What I Know

    I KNOW that the sun shines every day, even if we can’t see it behind the clouds. I know that friends, true and good ones, are a treasure I deserve less than anyone, but one that I cling to like a beggar clinging to the world’s last crumb of...

  • Nuova Vita

    I rolled around in my imprisoned state. The dirty white cement walls and their markings told stories of the once was. The walls retained their dark memories of the cruel sights they had witnessed and seemed to replay them in my mind. The light trickled...

  • The Magic. (Part 1)

    People are always curious as to what keeps a person like me going. When you reject religion, spirituality, and belief in anything but the tangible, life must seem pretty bleak, right? You are left only with science, with the hard facts of war, disease,...

  • The Magic. (Part Deux)

    … Well I’ve thought about it. That’s a vast understatement, actually, I’ve practically obsessed over it. It’s like that question they always ask you at the doctors office- “Have you ever had thoughts of suicide?̶...

  • In the Spring

    Warm days gave slow way to the damp and chill of Fall. Soon snow and harsh winds swept from the North, and the state went white, full of peace and still. He took the time, kept up in the thick walls of his home in the woods, to mourn, grieve, and come ...

  • Rain, Rain. Go Away.

    Day 219 since nuclear fallout. Diary entry number 159. Time 6:42 AM. Temperature 32 degrees Fahrenheit. From the depths of hell, these rains pour. My makeshift shelter is the only thing between me, and drowning in my own self pity. There is a God, and ...

  • Draw, Ya Sidewinder!

    The man in black barely tilted his head up and said “I reckon I didn’t hear you correctly. What did you say?” The young man stood his ground and said, “I said draw your iron, you sidewinder! I’m here to put you in the grou...

  • Hope in Questions

    The question barely leaves my lips, and I’m regretting giving voice to infantile fantasy. The odds are against it. Life would conspire to halt the very possibility. Great mountains of fate could very well crash down upon such vain hope. “Ex...

  • Once, there were blue fairies.

    I used to watch them from my bedroom. Peering out of my window hoping they wouldn’t see me. Little sparks of blue that flickered and shot around the garden, cute little smiles on their faces as they put the flowers to sleep for the night and woke...

  • The Five Steps (Part II)

    In high school I was average. Average grades. Average hair. Average everything. I wasn’t popular, or the weirdo—and for the record—I wasn’t the slut either. My upbringing wasn’t one that would appear on Oprah. I came from ...
