Can I Get A Connection?


Drafted laws. Too dry.

Can I get a connection?

Made them alive with fiction.

Did you cry when the boy died?

Now do we have a connection?

Keep Going


It was extremely dark when I left. I knew where I was heading, but I was afraid. Then the beautiful moon appeared behind me, lighting up the sky, as if it was telling me to keep going.

The Sun Will Return


Flip the switch for light.

Sometimes it doesn’t turn on.

The sun will return.

Stranger, I Want You.


Your smile, your look.

The way you dance to the beats.

Stranger, I want you.

It Will Protect You.


I must let you go.

I hope you still have the stone.

It will protect you.

Start-Ups


I have so much gratitude for my business partners, especially my FBO partners who have been working with me for almost three years, and all of us are pushing forward and taking on challenges without pay for all these years in addition to other projects we have for ourselves or with other groups. Trying to make personal ends meet while developing start-ups are tough and takes patience, but the process of learning, building new skills, and expanding relationships gives us a high. We’re seeing the destination of each goal getting closer and closer with our daily grind. My heart is with all of you as you strive for your goals. Fall down seven times and get back up eight (Japanese proverb). I’m cheering for you!!!

Trapped


Trapped.

Wanting everything, yet desiring simplicity.
The more you get, the more they want.
With nothing, there’s just authenticity.
But with nothing, you feel like nothing.

When you work hard you get known.
Attacks and Accolades.
Maybe do less and hide.
Lonely and peaceful days.

Wanting the new, yet missing the old.
Change is constant, an unbreakable code.

Love my love. Love.
Love the pain from love. Still love.

Between everything and nothing is something.
Maybe all we need is something.
