    Writing Isn't Easy...

    A Child's Prayer

    Now I lay me down to die Bombs are falling from the sky Planes are flying overhead Paints my playground all in red Mommy now for weeks has slept and by her body I have wept Now I lay me down to die And wonder if Americans cry

    What Lurkes In The Shadow Before Me?

    An impossible question to answer in truth..My shadow precedes me as to lead me in the wrong direction. When I close my eyes it steps inside of me to ensure that I am there and kept. And so I remain the only light that emits a faint glow that is of me thus creating the shadow...

    Without You

    My heart aches as I awaken to find that you are not there beside me as you have always been. Where are you my dear beloved friend? Silver streams spring from my eyes as the shards of my broken heart cling to the strings of my soul, Bleeding...drip, by drip, by drip. Not...

    An Image Of Me

    No Beginning nor end, in the image of my Father from whence I came. The immeasurable vastness of my souls abyss you could not begin to fathom. So far past the depths of sorrow even the Angels weep for hope. The light at the other end is an illusion behind me. This is my Despair.
