Hello again my friends

Life has changed a great deal for me, and I have been changed a great deal by life. I hope that you are all well, as there is much to be thankful for even on our darker days.

I am a work in progress. I am 25 years old. I am a poet, philosopher, and I am learning to love and appreciate myself as I encourage others to do so. I love deep conversations and learning about people. How they think, how they work, and what they do intrigues me. I am an intensely self-motivated learner and I want to make the world a better place. My family, my friends, and my loved ones are very dear to me. I embrace strangers often as they enter into my life, but keeping in touch has never been a strong suit of mine so feel free to message me at any time.

I am finding my way in this life. I have a deep and abiding faith in Christ, and I am growing to trust God more each day. I welcome any honest dialogue on any issue of importance. We must all learn to welcome struggles, pain, and difficulty as all of there trials contain invaluable opportunities for us to grow as human beings. It is when we feel most lost that we are the most free to shape ourselves and our future.

If you want to learn about where I've come from, read my work. If you want to know me, please feel free to e-mail or message me. I will do my best to respond as I am able.

Feel free to ask for reviews, specific or otherwise. I love trying to help other artists better themselves and reviewing poetry is a pleasure. I can also write poems by request. If you have a poem or an idea you would like written down I would very much like to help you however I am able. So feel free to e-mail or message me about it.

I hope that you enjoy your stay, and my work. God bless you and thank you for your time.

Listless are the Outcasts reviews
A very short poem I wrote 3 years ago. Huh... I was in middle school when I wrote this. Middle school... I shake my head at the notion of middle school. It's actually short.

Originally entitled "Bat" I did this piece 4 years ago for an english class. I think it holds up well for being done by a 13 year old me .

In Honorifice Monumentum reviews
I wrote the first part of this as I was walking through a concentration camp called Buchenwald in Germany. I edited it so that it would be slightly less tedious. Lots of metaphors in this one. Enjoy, I hope that it will let you see what I saw in my heart.

A Walk through Buchenwald reviews
Wrote this when I was typing up my other Holocaust poem. Kinda got teary while I was writing it. I hope it gets its message across. Went to a German concentration camp, this poem is based off of that experience.

Shallow people piss me off, they just do. You know who I'm talking about, those loud kids always laughing about foolish noises and pretending things to distract themselves from who knows what. I'm sorry, I just can't deal with them.

Really not 100% sure if this captures what it's like. Never been in a military man's shoes. My father and grandparents were in the military, so this is for them. Let me know how you think I did.

Wrote it, went back, realized that it had biblical connotations. Kinda nifty. It holds up, but it's some of my older work, so it's not quite supremo good.

What it's like to realize that your dreams are just dreams. The crushing grip of reality. Broken dreams... Not as long or as in depth as it could be given time, but it communicates its message effectively.

Wrote this the day my grandmother died. I didn't know her that well, I was just getting to know myself and to find myself when she passed away. She was a wonderful, intense, strong, willful, smart lady. I was pretty broken up when I wrote it.

One Starry Night reviews
Just a cool thought I had so I wrote it down in poetry. Not my best work, but what I would myself term a "cute" or "cutsy" poem. It's short and sweet, not normally my style but it fit the creative flow I had at the time. I REALLY like the idea though.

It sounds silly, but I scared myself back when I was writing this. I was a little more skittish back then, but then again I tried to make this poem as unnerving as possible. I think I got the job done, let me know what you think...

Just a very, very angry poem. Very angry. Bad times. One of my friends called it "passive aggressive," I suppose it could be called that. But above all, just angry. PS: I'm not normally this angry. -Check out "Hidden Chains" after you read this one!

My first attempt at a true novel, it's not very long right now. As it is, I think it's a fairly enjoyable read. Just revised the first chapter. Beginning the plot mapping now. It should take a while.
