My restlessness guided by my drive to change life in ways that may only exist as a dream. That’s usually how it starts right?…Anxious to create a future. Sixty seconds to me became as valuable as an hour. Echoing inside my head my grandfather “waste anything but time”. I caught myself thinking of the end…
I Bit The Apple Too…(Excerpt)
I bit the apple too Eve Though this time, The serpent, Sat in my palms, Follows me everywhere That is anywhere, On this green earth, Makes me forever take for granted, My gifts that was handed since birth, Now this plants roots tied, To a device, I like, I like to write, I like to…
Something You Forgot.
So is this us and who we are? Heard you lock the door, Turn on the car, Gone… The silence surround me, Trying to find answers to your actions, Not one thing in me, Couldn’t find a reason for you to leave, Without me… Our bond was everyday, Not a day went by without me,…
