Skills That I Learned From Grief

When you're a little kid, everything seems so simple and the only thing that you need to worry about is whether to watch this cartoon or that. Of course, I do come from the age of Nintendo and Saturday Morning Cartoons. Instead of playing with an iPhone, I was outside with my brother and playing … Continue reading Skills That I Learned From Grief

My Looking Glass

Though my eyes need glasses to help me see, To take in all of the beauty of the world - They also allow me to see the horrors and pain, The price of hate and violence unfurled.   We are so much better than agony and killing. We are human beings, our lives already fleeting … Continue reading My Looking Glass

Why We Fight

Fight, or fighting, can mean different things for different people. It does boil down to some sort of struggle. The question must be asked, "Why we fight?" For myself, I have been struggling with something for a very long time - almost as long as I've been alive. It's not been always that way because … Continue reading Why We Fight

Fox’s Hope

I Deep sapphire eyes - staring at the hunters. Ears perk, hearing words from monsters, "They're in Africa. Golden and new. The wolf was discovered today. A fresh animal to add to my wall. A quick shot and he'll be through." II Burrowing deep in the white snow, He'll never see me - lie low. … Continue reading Fox’s Hope

Death’s Knock

Death's Knock   Matter of my mortality raised, Understanding at a young age. Sightless stare leaves me dazed, Childish heart filled with rage.   Year after year has passed, As does those I adore. Life as well as pain won't last, Death's knock loud at the door.   For me, it will one day beckon, … Continue reading Death’s Knock

Dear Mom

  Dear Mama, It's been nearly 20 years since I've heard your voice or spoken to you. Yet, through a random prompt on the internet I stumbled upon today, I'm writing you a letter. There are a lot of "somethings" I wish I could tell you and questions to ask you. If you could see … Continue reading Dear Mom

Icy Touch

Icy Touch Broken heart and clenched fists Not a stranger to agony's stinging kiss. Somehow, still not prepared for this - Thirst for vengeance, so hard to dismiss.   Death's icy touch grazes yet again Never relenting… never showing mercy. Human flaws, consequences inhumane, The end came too quick for his journey.   Neither old age … Continue reading Icy Touch
