On October 12 2020 I had cardiac arrest and a traumatic brain injury I died twice, I saw things inside of those vivid moments that I can not explain without coming across as one who runs with the mentally insane. you are not suppose to remember your death, a last breath ,my dear people there is nothing to fear for both life and death are beautiful inside of themselves, hang those worries on top of your pantry shelf.

When you have more then a second chance believe your sweet ass you let stupid shit go and teach others once again how to smile and just shut up and do a jig

My life as become poetry in motion before I found myself a new state of peace. it was a rollercoaster ride ,nowhere safe to be ,no place to hide always causing some sort of commotion

I sit back look in the rearview mirror ask myself how the hell did I get this far? I was my own damn worse enemy never listening to the real story now I sit inside of this house that is full of love . understanding and glory

A man that has 9 lives and many more recycled parts that you can not find in your local five and dime store, the shell cracked yet the inside remained untouched. if you believe outside of this realm you might just comprehend

I battled the darkness of my life with an open heart and an honest soul, I have been telling my story every time that I was reborn, I dance underneath the star covered skies,I have been speaking of truths while I spun their twisted lies

I am a lone wolf yet there are times that I will find myself taking a step a back to lead and protect my pack sinner and even their own created version of the devil himself to others who know my checkered past an angel and legend standing in the shadows always doesn't seem to last .when there is a fight to fight for the scared and voiceless to be fought

I am a warrior,I am me a seeker of truth, a teacher of the Gods and other worlds for I have seen and shook the hands of all.no it is not inside of the walls of my mind I have been one of the chosen few since the dawn of time so please remember this death is neither a question nor a answer life is a beautiful dance if you decide to give living it a chance

    Let us who at times endure strife,
    Rejoice how divine is each life.
    Each breath that we take;
    All for His sake.
    This day and forever,
    For His endeavor.
    Through sweet and sour;
    Today and tomorrow.
    With thankfulness in our heart,
    May our gratitude never part.
