It was love
that erupted
from the mountain of life
and the ashes of me
fell into place
filling up an often
empty space.
Desire ran reluctant
from what I thought
was ever-so important.
The freedom of love
infused so far below
the foundation of my soul,
always digging deep
for some peace of mind
through the depths
of perception
with what was meant for me
and what I call mine.
Maybe with time
I shall learn
to be so kind
and no longer unwind
the truth from behind,
with what it is
that hides within
my mystery inside.
It’s this smile
I shall keep.
Pardon me
if I forgot to weep
all the while
taking that leap.

My roots are buried in the Dirty South. I grew up learning the importance of God and Southern Charm. I began writing in my late teens mostly through heartbreak and music. I moved out west 15 years ago and live right around the corner from the Fountain Of Youth. Most people refer to it as Lake Tahoe. I play Chef during the day and search for ways to save the world by night, through reading, writing, and believing. I enjoy the side of life that is less abrasive. I look forward to joining you on my quest through Spiritual Sobriety with the Promised Land as our ultimate destination.
