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.

-Jon Riki Karamatsu, 8/18/2017-

(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.

All I Need Is One Bright Star


Among billions,

all I need is one bright star

to join my starlight. – Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku #68, July 29, 2017 –

Quietness Melts Me


Quietness melts me.

Haunting thoughts heats up my chest.

Breathe life to my dreams.

Death Can Chase Us Down


Death can chase us down.

But we will get the medal.

We did everything.

Mindfulness


If gratitude is the most powerful practice, mindfulness is the second because it is the fuel that boosts gratitude.
