Imperfect circumstances we are wont to blame
You must login to vote
for every instance we are set up to fall.
The cemetery earth is turned,
yet we deny that we dug our graves.
Fear is the ultimate temptation,
the safe harbor that glues us in place.
Idle minds dry to dust
in agony of dreams deferred.
We dare not speak
lest we are deemed absurd.
Society fails the individual
due to ideas unheard.
Decry your name, underestimate yourself,
but donít declare thatís why you wonít risk the fall!
Eons ago, and to this day,
destiny still seeks its soul to claim.

The present and future are not about who you were in the past-rather, they are about who you are and who you will become.
"Writing is truly glorious in that an author can put on paper the words that fear denies the voice to speak."-from my short story, "Set Free"
"...What you feel is what you are;
What you are is beautiful..."

Life surprises you! And I'm talking about the good stuff, because a bad surprise is not a surprise at all, it is just shock and horror. All of these good surprises, they are rewards, and the things that happen to remind you that you matter and that you should make yourself faithful so that you can be deserving of all of life's good surprises. Every wonderful surprise in life is a chance to flourish, so grab life by the horns-but don't ride, steer instead: life's horns are life's joystick. You can handle it, because your life's horns are made especially for you. If you don't give up, all of this will hold true and life will continue to surprise you.
