An Open Letter to My Friends and Family

Dear Loved Ones,

When you wake up this morning, if you find yourself wondering why you even bothered or why you should continue your journey; when you lay your head to rest tonight, if you choke back the tears as your thoughts drown in the memories of living…

If your feet are exhausted from treading the water and your arms have grown weak from all of the swimming…

If you’re hopeless, hurting, bruised, broken and weary, and if your heart bleeds and it screams:

Enough is enough!

As you cover your frown with a smile…

If your load feels too heavy, the miles keep coming, and you’re tempted to quit and just sink to the bottom….

Please, hear me.

You matter. Your happiness matters. Your sadness matters. Your actions matter. Your inaction matters. Your hate matters. Your love matters. Your voice matters. Your silence matters. Your future matters.

Your life matters!

If ever, for one second, you forget that or you have trouble believing, you find me no matter the hour. I will remind you as many times as required until you believe it.

You matter to me. 


 Dedicated to every helping hand that’s held me up along the way. Because of you, my message grows even louder.

Reminiscing The Aftermath [Poem]

Dark clouds linger

Mounted in gray.

War is waged.

The sunlight settles

Into clouded blankets.

The black Knight

Fights the dawn.

At a distance,

The masses gather

Raising their voices.

One last song

Carried faithfully on

Across the miles,

By soft winds

That never forget.

The Clock [Poem]

The clock stopped

The hours

Like minutes

The minutes

Like seconds

Squandered

The clock stopped

The eyes fixed

Dreaming

The dreams give way to terror

Looming

The clock stopped

The pulse slowed down

The breath of life

Stolen

The hours

The dreams

The pulse

The living

The clock

Stopped
