When Life Is…

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill When funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you …

Run Inside My Mind

My mind has an entry door from the left side of my head. Your right. Climbing my ears filled with so many piercings was indeed uncomfortable, I understand. Turn the knob, go on. I promise only the absolute truth. The sky in my mind is bright. It even has a …
