Upon this page

four fingers hold true

ruled by a thumb

that allow these words

to pass on through

spawned with a sword

now knowing

what it aims to do.

 

For a verse is drawn

packed with repentance

chapters colored

in a poem redemptive.

From the layer of life

this ink shall portray

all that is poignant

replenished by the purpose

along this golden way.

 

I look to my left

But to the right I see

A canvas wiped clean

no longer spilled

in the void of suffering.

Instead was a picture revered

rambled with a bit of rhythm

through a conscious stream

no longer smeared.

 

As the sword it drew about

a certain decorated scene

where by the river of dreams

stood a glowing tree

growing wild

– its limbs breaking free.

 

For the circle had come complete

and from a seed

planted becoming

flourished a weed

whispering goodness

from the roots within

came a hope for humanity.

 

That day I sat

standing in the sun

steady held by a warming wind.

Then came the push

and from its force I fell

fallen in a spin

until all that I see

from this kneeling knee

became as one

for my mind

it was no longer spun.

 

It was time

that what was to be

had begun.

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.
