Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down


I had a thought while running today that really stuck with me. I think it stuck with me because it was the perfect example of why I try not to say things out loud until I've properly thought them through. When words leave our lips too soon, before they are ready, they tend to leave … Continue reading Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down

Chapter One: This is Your Home Now


Olivia sat hard on the box spring, the checkered comforter barely cushioned her landing as a pain shot up her spin through a loud creaking beneath her sore bum. "Ouch!" She frowned and rolled to the side leaving room to rub the sore spots. It was official, she was going to hate this place as … Continue reading Chapter One: This is Your Home Now

Half-lit Cigarettes


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SE1WaaNzW0 Bad for each other like half lit cigarettes, half way toxic but we teeter on the edge, not quite committed enough to death, just bad enough to weaken your will, I'll keep you asleep like a sleeping pill. Living life like a wedge, standing between each other and greatness, you are a genius and … Continue reading Half-lit Cigarettes

Day 2: Quiet


There is a verse that always took my breath, one I will carry close to my heart until we part by death. I put it to use for the joy that it brings, I keep it as a reminder, life is in the little things. A new venture and the courage to try it, a … Continue reading Day 2: Quiet

Caught in the Crossfire


  https://youtu.be/eH4F1Tdb040 I had a question that went unanswered for too many years to count. I hadn't paid it much mind and I think that's why it lashed out. I can only speak for myself so I take it to the water, and I toss it around with no real results, why bother, It's just … Continue reading Caught in the Crossfire

Exposition


https://youtu.be/O0YxeTjFn70 There's something in the water, but I like the way it tastes. It gets right down to business, we're falling race by race. Sweet dreams are made of this, and who am I to dismiss. They take our pent-up traumas, and paint ancient history into current dramas. Entertainment for the feasting, while taking away the … Continue reading Exposition

Day 1: “In the Woods”


https://youtu.be/zU7co2-yn_Q   From the Inside, Out... We can be free, we can be free, what does that sentiment say to me? I close my eyes and I'm surrounded in green, the leaves of trees whisper to me of the things they have seen, They don't bare the harsh assessment they never condemn, green to my namesake, They give … Continue reading Day 1: “In the Woods”

I See You


  Sometimes it begins with a picture, sometimes with a single sound, and then before you know it, you are out adventure bound, the structure of life was never meant to be rigid, buying into the cold cut American dream just seems frigid, peddling slices of humanity one piece at a time, selling the lot for … Continue reading I See You

Meet Your Trainer!


At close to 9 lbs I came kicking and screaming into the world with not one, but two sets of the chubbiest cheeks you've ever seen. One of them went away with time while the other plagued every family, school, or friend group picture I ever took. Up until a certain age that trait is … Continue reading Meet Your Trainer!
