When I was young I prayed for wisdom. My prayers were answered with many lessons in life to learn Wisdom. Be careful and specific when praying. You will undoubtedly receive your request in form unanticipated.

I now pray for Blessings.  Blessings for me...Blessings for all. 

My writing can't seem to break too far from Rhyme. My first poem on this site, 'Frosted Flakes' is a good read to better understand my style.  I value Free Verse for its ability to transcend time and translation.  I started to explore a subtle urge to write more frequently in July 2017. 

I dread narcissism and I attempt to write for the good of all.  I apologize in advance if a lonely 'me' will sometimes sneak its way into 'all.' 

Please give me specific criticism over a general compliment (I am still learning to accept compliments). I am on Poetry Soup to improve my craft. I value integrity and personal responsibility in a world that at times seems to abandon such virtues.
