Greatest Defeat

Your greatest defeat is your greatest opportunity to understand that defeat is powerful. - "Topher Pike" Defeat is a requirement for anyone who ever created something unbelievable.

Poem XII – Picture Frame

Resting in suspended stillness, I momentarily question my physical reality. Blocking out the constant noise with two pointed fingers, I voluntarily question my artistic sanity. The second-hand unwinds deep inside as the memory immediately triggers my expanding mind. Two corners show shadows from a light uncovered by an intermediate shade misunderstood by the disinclined. If I... Continue Reading →

Poem III – Motionless Rainfall

The trees they do not move, and the flowers stand still in amazement as the rainfall beats louder and louder. Do they know something I do not?

Poem II – Forever Young

As the cold summer rain flows uncontrollably underneath my feet, I stand in a moment of silent reflection. Reluctantly I resisted your arrival, but the representation in front of my eyes provides another moment of poetic contemplation. Your innocence gives a strength underneath a weakness in my own thinking. You may not stand tall today, but the spirit... Continue Reading →

My Future Self

I found this letter I wrote a few months ago and thought I would share. Shortly before I wrote this letter, I created a goals list of some big and small things I want to accomplish over the next 5 years. Writing a letter to myself from the future was on this list, and I... Continue Reading →
