Let Go, You Must.


Desire, you feel.

Losing what you want, you fear.

Love, you may.

Let go, you must.

Help me to find it


Help me to find it.

Maybe it is not out there.

Look inside of me.

Sadness Feels So Good


Sadness feels so good.
Like a drug, it makes me high.
Inject it with love.

Let them all go.


Events and people move in and out of our lives – just let them all go. Love the good ones, but don’t let your desires drag you down. Dislike the bad ones, but don’t let the pain drag you down. The only thing that remains consistent is you, unless you let them all drag you down.

Death Does Not Stop, So We Will Never Stop


Death does not stop.

So we will never stop.

Do, we win.

Fail, we win.

Learn, we win.

Win, we win.

(Besides practicing business law and entrepreneurship, I am working hard to expand myself and get out of my comfort zone by being vulnerable with my creative writing, fiction writing, nonfiction writing, poems, quotes, and photography, which has given me comfort and joy, and I hope it does for you too.)

I Like It When It Rains


I like it when it rains.

Tear drops form on the tips of my hair.

One by one they fall onto my cheeks,

so no one will know which ones are mine.

How Many Stars Will I Kill Tonight?


How many stars will I kill tonight?

Thousands if I let my dark voices in with no fight.

Quel my fears with a lasso I can hold.

Yank them to the side, and focus on the things I can control.

Cherish everything that brings me joy.

Sure tomorrow can be great,

but right now is what I must appreciate.
