We are taught that heaven can not exist without hell. That pleasure is paid trough pain Wealth is reaped from the famished. And our promised land was built on the genocide of the damned. Our forgiveness came through another’s false condemnation. Our mercy, we drink with blood. God’s power comes through his rejection of theContinue reading “The damned promise land”

Ocean are you sad when the fish and sailors leave? Do you miss the creatures that have left your soft embrace? Are there messengers you wish hadn’t come into your mist? How does it feel to fade away? Can you ever wash their memories away?
You did not change me
I will not change for you. No. I will wear my dress no longer. No. I will not love softer nor harsher. No I will live this live with joy and love. You can harm my body but God always heals my soul. You can steal my body for a night. You can steal myContinue reading “You did not change me”
If I am Honest with myself….
There are so many times in this life that we push away those thoughts that make us tremble…If I am being honest with myself, the loneliness I feel would be too much to bear. I fill myself with virtual distractions and media. But rather than me consuming media, it is the medium that consumes me.Continue reading “If I am Honest with myself….”
Now I lay me down to sleep
Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the lord my soul to keep. Now I lay me down to sleep. And if per chance I shan’t wake. To continue with my daily pace.

Psalm 42 Conversations
Why my soul are you downcast? Why so quiet in me? I’m tired of loving and losing. I feel God doesn’t listen to me. Why my soul are you silent? I’ve been shouting so long.

The Consumption of the Sea
Shivering, she’s shaking. Someone save her from the sea. Cast her out from fathoms deep. Draw her from the tide, the green. Draw her from the foaming rage that seems so sweet and so serene until the sailor is unseen. Shushing sounds and silencing. She is silent in the sea. She is silent. She isContinue reading “The Consumption of the Sea”
The Seduction of the Sea
The foam rises like knives clapping against the rocks.They never fail to slap the shore. The higher they rise, the harder they fall. The white waves consume the earth. Swallowing souls and songs in the sea. She spares no one. No one left to breathe. And the further you swim into her arms, the furtherContinue reading “The Seduction of the Sea”

The Futility of Words
Sometimes I wonder why I still speak when there’s so many reasons to not.I wonder if a vow of silence would do some good.Would it make a difference, when there’s so much pain?Speaking contributes to global cacophony.Why do we speak so much?So many judgments and transgressions occur from the flick of a flippant tongue.We’re constantlyContinue reading “The Futility of Words”
The Unattended Soda Can in the Back of a Chevrolet on a Warm Midsummers Day.
Soda Pop a soda can in the back of a Chevrolet That’s been rolled around too many times tossed and tumbled against the chipped white paint and rust That’s sat in the sun too long That’s seen too many humid nights And too many sticky days Careful, When you open it The sweetness has fadedContinue reading “The Unattended Soda Can in the Back of a Chevrolet on a Warm Midsummers Day.”
The Cry of A Crow
When the leaves began to change to autumnal colors of crimson, And in the spring when the flowers bloom’d and the grass grew lush and the junipers blue When the sun set on the pueblos And the haunt of the blushing mountain foretold not her passion The crow cried. In the brush of the windContinue reading “The Cry of A Crow”
How you see yourself determines how you interact with your world and the realities around you. When you are chronically self-critical, overly judgmental of your own body image, grades, work, relationships— you project this onto the people around you. If you hate yourself, you must learn to walk and talk with your shadows. Otherwise, you will project unkindness into the corner of the world that you reside in.
