A Start

The first thing I wrote and shared that wasn't a college paper or a work report. Shared on Facebook in 2015... "People hold a monumental amount of power. If we allow ourselves to recognize that when we interact with others, no matter the circumstance, we have the choice to either be nice or to be … Continue reading A Start

Every day offers a chance To step away from the past Embrace a new self There is a warrior waiting To reveal the path Soldier of fortune Did I shine my light on your fear? I was trying to show you the way Confusing knowledge with madness Compassionate care Drag it into the woods and … Continue reading Suffocating
