Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I refuse to drown

I am mortal and my soul
Is so very damnable
Gravity pulls me down
And the waves cover me
Breathing is impossible
But I have no fear
I refuse to drown
I trust in the holy
Even if the past is impassible
And the walls are my tears
I can't forget the memories
I can't wash away the years
But I can do something better
By moving on
My soul is inexhaustable
Why go on?
Why not
There never were promises
About this life
I've had to take extreme measures
Refuse the simple answers
And the whispers
From the voices anonymous
Ghosts in the spirit world
That knows, curiosity burns
Like cancer
My heart knows nothing more
Than the questions are
Better than the replies
By those who call me
And say I am done
