Pure victory
Is a clean win important? 
And does it matter if it doesn't? 
That's my problem: 
Are the damage my words? 

What difference does it make how you achieved it 
What do you have now? 
And you're no longer in debt,...Read More

I was born to be a survivor and a fighter.
That's why I became a writer.
As a child the physical abuse I endured.
Being a baby it was pretty absurd.

The child of recovering addicts.
Even one that still until recently would slip.

Leader of the home with virtuous height
Bracing up family with grand posture
Governing prudently by great faith’s might  
He’s our Daddy in his godly gesture.

Shantelle Alone
Let’s have a shandy,
With shantelle.
Because she is rock, our stone,
In the mist of adversity,
She stands strong,
On her own.
She stands for those who have NO backbone,
She is a rock,
She is a stone.
To Shantelle,
We know welly.
Alone, she stands!

Rough guy levitates towards me,

The Fact(s)

It started with a poem. 
Penned in by mistake. 
Then it ended up in a letter, 
that later turned into an email. 
That was forwarded, 
not once but a thousand, 
and then ten million times. 

Then someone was asked,...Read More

I see the blinders hiding me
Light finding gaps in reality
When it comes down to the end
I thought that I would find my friend

My mind comes back to what it knows
Hierchy insanity rings my ears
Strange how we...Read More

An unending war against an unbeatable enemy,
A fight for all that’s been lost, a chance at renewal.
Warriors that scream defiance at the clouds,
Their veins coursing with desperation like flame.

Shame, desperation alone is not strong enough a steel,
And the remaining begin...Read More

Heroes at the viral battlefront
In despair and on lockdown
A city is turned into a one horse town
Its people are on the frontline to save the Earth

The Telling Heart
The years have fallen, 
like trees in a forest,
and their quiet crashing.
The night rains darkness,
but then the dawn rescues,
from the nightmarish dreams.
The morning memories,
will be lived again,
and hearts broke once more.
For some are delicate,
they know not the game,
and their feelings...Read More
