A Beautiful Kind of Mess

For years, I wore that mask, trying to feed the word the lies it taught me, yet over and over, I’d fail miserably, and the consequence of my failure was ridicule. It isn’t so hard now; these days, my smiles come with ease, and sadness is no longer a monster I grapple with every night,…

Life, In Colour – A Poem

Pain is not reserved for the outcasts We all have a story to tell Regardless of our names and pasts That ache, we know all too well Some pray to find peace Some drink to numb the pain Some kiss to find release Still, we all bleed the same

To Heal a Broken Heart

I thought I had changed. I thought I could take on a new world, and abide in the boundless love it has to offer, yet, instead, I only find that I sabotage myself. Anger stirs in my soul, and love becomes bittersweet. I should have known better than to give in to desire, for now,…

Writing Update: New Projects, Wattpad Books

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve spoken to you like this, but I have some important news for you. Lately, I’ve been making big plans, and simply cannot contain my excitement. New Projects I am currently working on two projects: a novel and a poetry book with a running theme. I hope to…

The Book Experiment

Lately, I’ve really been getting into reading books. It is long over due, I should think, as a writer must first become a reader in order to hone his or her craft. Truth be told, I’ve grown a little tired of romance and mystery novels these days, so I’ve decided to experiment a bit. For…

To My Faithful Followers

Sometime ago, I discovered WordPress, a place to share your thoughts and reflect on the thoughts of others. I am so grateful for this platform, and for the support of my faithful followers. Blogging, for me, is not only a way to express myself, but to inspire and encourage others. The beautiful thing about blogging…

Art: Escaping Superficiality

A book allows you to say everything, or almost everything you want to say. A poem allows you to say all you need to say in but a few words. Evidently, writing helps to get a message across, regardless of which method you choose to use. But what I love most about writing is the…

Spirituality: Finding Hope in the Unseen

Now that Easter has passed, I figure it would be the perfect time to talk about its origin, or how commercialized the religious holiday has become. However, not quite being in the mood to cause any controversy, today, I’ve decided to focus on something even better – spirituality. For the past three months or so,…

Fighting Our Obsessions

We all have a tendency to obsess over things. Whether it be celebrities, crushes, movies, or tv shows, there’s always that one thing that gets us fired up, even to the point where we lose sleep because it’s all we can think about. We like to think it’s a good thing, as for many of…

My mind is an ocean…

…of thoughts, and I its captive; waves of emotion pulling me down, eager to swallow me whole. But I, knowing just how to survive, just keep on swimming.  

To My Followers

Lately I’ve been a little disappointed with myself. These days it seem I can hardly find the time to write or blog. I keep telling myself that today is the day I’ll get something done, yet nothing ever comes out of it. Really, I long to get back to writing. There are times when I…

On A Rainy Day

  There’s something about a dark, cloudy sky that gets me in the mood for a good cry.  These moments I often find a little strange; even a little poetic. I only wish that I could find the words to capture all the wonderful things I’ve experienced exploring the world and all its mysteries in…
