One Day

Reluctance radiates from her

curved spine and trembling limbs.

They all can see her nerves

sitting comfortably

on her shoulders,

whispering sour melodies of inadequacy and failures she may never experience,

but already owns the scars from.

She’s quiet, they say

to each other, but

never ask her why.

If she could, she would

recite the constant aria

that she hears behind her ears.

But her anxiety pins

her mouth shut,

and expects her hold it all in.

She’s distant, they say

to each other, but

never come to her.

Her mind wanders and she wonders

how she can continue.

She cries alone, wishing

someone would somehow know.


One day,

she will be able

to steady herself,

she will roll her shoulders back,

and stand tall.

One day,

she will be able

to unfasten her lips,

and bandage her wounds.

One day,

she will.

Back to Business

August 2016… the last time I logged in on this blog and wow, so, so much has changed.

Over a year ago, I took a *much longer than intended* break from blogging, social media, and writing all together because I felt that because of all of the real world commitments I had made, I couldn’t commit to much in this virtual world. While life stressors seem to be building and life seems to be growing more and more hectic by the hour, I still feel empty. I feel like I’m missing something, that I’m not doing something that I’m supposed to be doing- which feels very similar to walking into a room and forgetting why. It’s aggravating, frustrating, and you feel taunted by your forgetfulness.

I recently downloaded Google Docs so that I could write something for grad-school (Social Work), and came across my rough, ROUGH draft of a poetry book I started about 2 years ago. I hadn’t looked at it since leaving this blog. It flooded my heart and filled that strange void I was feeling.

I plan get back into the rhythm of things and get my flow back… get it… rhythm and flow… like a poem..? Ah, forget it!

ANYWAY, without further ado, I just wanted to re-introduce myself to this wonderful community. I hope we will get to know one another soon!

2,000 Followers–THANK YOU


WHAT??? This is crazy! I feel like I just had 1,000–and THAT number was a shock!
I don’t know if I deserve it or not, haha, but I just have to say thank you all so so so much for reading my words, commenting your thoughts, and following my blog. You really don’t know how much it means to me.
Writing has helped me through some tough times and to know that I’m not alone, that I have people supporting me, and that I may have made a small impact on someone in the world is amazing.
So, again, THANK YOU ALL!! 🙂

To the Christians

I want to say a quick “Thank You!” to everyone who writes about God (in a positive way), who plays Christian music in their place of work, and who isn’t afraid to carry their bible or a piece of scripture with them wherever they go. I appreciate and respect all of you.
In a world where sin is worshipped, where God is a forgotten entity but a common curse word, and where believing in something -believing in anything- is becoming unfashionable, it’s a very commendable act to openly express your love for and the word of God to a society that greatly needs it.

*This post may be unpopular among some of you, and you’re free to disagree! I may not agree, but I respect all religions (or lack there of). It’s not my place to judge, but I felt the need to thank those who support my beliefs. To each their own. Thank you.

The Fortress

Pebble by pebble;
Stone by stone,
this fortress was built up
by the hands of our own.
Now destined to fall
from the distress of cracks,
yet despite its weakening,
we continue to wrack.

We destroyed this once sovereign being
and have transformed it into an idea
we will never be reaching.
Not with our minds
wrapped in the wicked ways of this world.
Not until we learn
what a life is actually for.

Shots are fired
like the beat of a drum
with each thump,
another one comes along.
Raiding and ravaging
each other for their worth
ends only when one
becomes part of the earth.

Corruption and lies
lie deep within our lives
seeping into the core
of our values and guidelines.
We are no longer ashamed
and willingly take the blame
as long as the world
will one day know our name.

The Society Journal – New Site


I have been thinking about what I want to do with writing, whether I ever get published or not. What I want to accomplish in my life, what I want to change in myself, and how I want to impact the world through words. Because that’s what I think it’s all about- my small stamp on society.
I’m still not completely sure what I’m doing, but I decided to take another step and create a new site,
With it, I would like to welcome writers of all genres and forms (essays, poetry, fiction, etc.) to raise awareness about the troubles and to celebrate the wonders of today’s society.

If you would like to be a part of this, you can contact me through email, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Tree of Knowledge

My good friend, Alice Reichert just started her blog, Wingsonravens. This is one of my favorite poems of hers that I have read so far. Check out her work and let her know what you think!

Wings on Ravens

A tree

Grown of bark, blacker than night,

Ruptured from the cool, green grass,

Sits, in waiting, in my back yard.

The black bark is twisted,

Mangled, frayed,

Like withered, arthritic hands.

The darkness compels, bewitches,

Pulls me in.

It’s magnetic.

The leaves are alive with color,

Am I Reading This Right??


1,000? What? This really is a huge, huge deal to me. I cannot believe that anyone would take time out of their day to read a word of mine, nonetheless, over 1,000 people reading my poetry. This is crazy. You all are crazy. I’m crazy.
Thank you so much for following, commenting, liking, and reading. Your encouragement and support means the world to me and I deeply appreciate each and every one of you! 🙂

Giveaway Contest!

To some, this may not be a huge deal, but to me- it’s massive.

I have reached over 1,000 email followers on WordPress and am nearing 1,000 WordPress account followers. I never expected 1 person to read my work, nonetheless, this many. I really appreciate everyone who reads/follows/comments on my posts, it really does mean the world to me.

With that said, I have decided to hold my first contest and giveaway!

The only guideline for the contest is to write a poem about my favorite poetic subject- society or humanity. It doesn’t matter what you have to say about them, just as long as it’s something.

I am planning on choosing 3 winners, maybe more, maybe less depending on how much I like the submissions and how many people participate.

The winner will receive:

-A post on my blog dedicated to their submission poem.

-A signed copy of his/her favorite poem of mine.

-A signed copy of my favorite poem of mine.

-A collection of new poems that haven’t been published.

-A sneak peek at my first chapbook.

I have only one rule: 

No profanity.
