Premium Member Through reflection
Mirror's image portrays purity through reflection
yet it does not cast acerbity through reflection.

When looking into depths of self, what is it you see?
From my own eyes darkness hides beauty through reflection.

Near sunset the lake's surface almost appears glass-like
as sky's depths...Read More

Dad, Let Go
In all my life 
I’ve never spent a full day with you 
Dad, the man I know and love
Split in two

 Overflowing like the sparkling spring from acerbity,
 The emerald stones on the relieve peak
 Causing welling up like stormy waves,
 And breath taking halt, grunting
 Roar as the thundering drums reverberating;
 The window pout unfold a feature

A prayer to Jesus
Speak to me lord and direct me
Carry me to the mountain high
Far from the city of destruction
Where I can lay on my knees

Tighten my earthly shoulders Lord
Grease my joints, oh dear...Read More

Till everyone stepped aside for you
