Mixed with chocolate; food and I are friends...Read More

Raising Cain
Mother tried to raise Cain,
To carry a righteous name,
But in that he could not abide,
For he lost his soul to homicide.

Abel’s blood was obliviously found,
Staining, calling from God’s Holy ground,
On the beaten path,
Demanding God’s almighty wrath.

God’s mark on Cain’s forehead,
Was...Read More

Change Directions
By Curtis Johnson

We think that it’s a weeping pity and a crying shame for things to be this or that way.

We claim we knew it could happen, but...Read More

Non-Sense
I'm so smart I can fool myself
but I'm too stupid to figure me out
pull back the curtain remove the doubt

Before the Rain is Gone
She kept it all inside her
and never spoke a word,
though her thoughts flew and darted
like a trapped and frantic bird.

Inside her was a garden
that was hung with Spanish moss,
like the massive oaks were weeping
to remind her of her loss..
