A Poem: Gossip Is Poison

The continuous dragging of my name has reoccurred over the past few years and it’s rather exhausting. I can’t imagine speaking on someone without them being able to defend themselves. Imagine leading a life of liberating your fears only to be persecuted behind your back, and that’s why I live with caution. I’ve learned to … Continue reading A Poem: Gossip Is Poison

Reconciling My Old Church

I want to preface this by saying that if you're from my old church, please read the whole thing. Thank you. I've had quite the journey in my spiritual walk, and I know I'm not finished yet.

A Parable: As The Leaves Fall

There's something about the changing of seasons. The skin sheds from the serpent's back and the foxes change into their new coats. Some seasons feel cold and like the night lasts forever. The stars are covered by clouds and all we have is the pollution to breath in. Inhale. Exhale. The summers are hell and … Continue reading A Parable: As The Leaves Fall

A Poem: The Great Departure

At one time, I was full of what I thought was hope. I beat myself up with this hope as if I was going to change for anything better. I swallowed down the words of others to fuel my ego as I sought to be "humble", but my pride wouldn't die. There was a flame … Continue reading A Poem: The Great Departure
