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

Through The Darkness

Overjoyed one day, I can’t stop smiling – The next, I can barely stop myself from crying. What path can I take so it can be reconciling?

Aimless

It'll continue to haunt; Leaving  me… Continue reading Aimless
