With every word,
I try to capture
The essence of you.
But in the act of description,
I lose something
Of your substance,
As if trying to hold the wind
In the palm
Of my outstretched hand.

You are a mystery
With depths...

To Whoever Reads These Words

To whoever reads these words,
I want you to know this truth.
No matter where you are,
Or what challenges you face,
You are enough.

It's easy to lose sight of this fact,
To feel like you're always falling short.
But I am here to tell you,

Eleven Dollars

She approached the red light
Thoughts swirling in her mind
She had made it a good day for them
She felt happy
And as she slowly rolled forward
A dirty man momentarily caught her eye
Standing on a shady median
He was holding a sign

The Wind It Carries

The wind carries a smile,
A whisper from a distant friend,
A gentle touch that erases the gloom
And fills me with a sense of belonging.

The sun's warm embrace,
A kiss on my cheek,
Dispels the memories of past pain
Leaving only hope and...

My Heart's pain


I missed those times when you’re with me,
My tears that you alone can see,
I want to feel your touch of love,
Showing the faith that I must have.

Sharing is one of your habit,
You’re generous, so be with it.

And left mentally limited.
Behind fast advancing,
Forward moving times.

No longer is it sad to see,
A decadent society...
By fiction.
And pretense,
Of wholesome purity.

No longer is it sad to see

In life's vast journey, hardships reside,
A path strewn with challenges, by our side.
Through trials and tribulations, we must tread,
For it's in those struggles, strength is bred.

Like a tempest's rage, they descend,
Testing our spirits,...

You all make a practice of sin,
For sin is transgression from Law;
Transgressions will corrupt within,
That will cause a cancerous flaw.

You know Christ was manifested,
In order to take away sin;
That the Father had invested,

Loud Heard Are The Voices

Loud maybe the voices.
Heard collectively in crowds to protest.
Of the many who stay proud of their heritage,
Sexuality and ancestry,
To protect kept pretensions...
Of their heterosexual wholesomeness.
Gone to no longer value,
As an...

The Only Show in Town

It’s been a tumultuous year
of blood sweat and tears
But don’t you have no fear
because grannies hand is near

She’ll pick you up when your
She’ll turn your life around
She’ll put your feet back on the ground
She’s the only show in...
