My knees began to wobbleas I heard your final gobbleand the ax came down and severed off your head.I knew you had a brotherand a father and a motherbut I chose to see you just as food instead.It must be so unnervingknowing you will be a servingand that be...

To flourish in hillsGreen and sereneWhere flowers and trees are free to bloom,Grow, multiply and existWithout the fear of ever being harvestedWhere tears fall from a saddened skyAnd moisten the groundTo welcome a new addition to paradise We needn't mourn...

The Suicide

An ending for one and a new beginning for another?

Jack was completely calm. As the nose of his aircraft dipped for the final time, as he saw the ground approaching, as he anticipated the impending impact, he felt no fear. Instead there was a serenity that came not just from a belief in the afterlife, but...

For Andres

A Scream from within in memory of an Angel

Angel you flew away, to where there is no pain.Just short of two years life,Your mistreatment so profane.Your face was lovely, with precious tears.Hands small and soft, you erased my own fears.Your hair was ever so dark, your eyes quite so bright.Yet your...
