I’ve always loved butterflies. Not as much as unicorns or dragons of course, but I’ve loved them all the same. They’re one of the few real things that appear magical to me. This morning I woke up with a thought. “Are we all potential butterflies?” The average persons doesn’t cares about butterfly eggs or larva,..

True Friends

What is a friend? According to Aristotle it is a single soul dwelling in two bodies. But what is it really. Someone you can count on, depend on. What is a friend? I guess a friend has a different definition depending on who you are talking to. To me, a friend is someone I can count on. And my best..

His Dream, My Reality

Fifty years ago today a great man stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and gave a speech that changed this nation. His words called upon the past belief that equality was indeed an inalienable right. He had a dream. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had dream that black people could one day be..

Evolution of Self

As I approach the lovely milestone of 25, I find myself reflecting.  Opening a mental time capsule and sitting down to remissness. Remembering a different time when I knew exactly what my life had in store for me. When up was up and right was indisputable. When I just had all the answers to life's questions. Remember a..

From Iago to Desdemona

I wrote this a few years ago about a lost love. At the time it felt like I had been hurt and betrayed in a way I couldn't possibly recover from. This is as true now as it was then. Shakespeare wrote many plays during his lifetime, but none speaks to me of deceit and..

Jonesin’ the Dream

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"  That quote is from the New Colossus by Emma Lazarus which is engraved on a plaque and stored in the..

Spin me the Facts

When I first created this blog I didn't want there to be any mention of politics. I wanted this blog to show case my talent as  writer. I want to write about love and give advice. I wanted to create poems that expressed my innermost feelings. Well I still want all of that, but I..
