We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security, and women's empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all." - Ban Ki-moon If you haven't heard, Greta Thunberg … Continue reading Attention: Global Climate Strikes! Attend One, Save the Planet
When Heaven shines its light upon me, I'll not be weighed down by my fears, or the tears of my past fading behind me. Instead, I'll look forward towards a blinding light, knowing that this time was never taken from me, but granted freely, as this time was never truly mine, and only graciously extended … Continue reading His Once More
(The Wolf Boy's part) Took a boat into the Ocean, but ended swept up in a storm. The vessel tumbled while in motion, now I'm lost and all forlorn.

Sarika
A day like this will not be missed, until he lies next to his grave. Wishing for all the time that he'd tasted, yet in the midst of pain, laid waste to it. T'was a struggle like many others, under a blanket of self-doubt, he'd lay smothered. Second-guessing and re-contesting himself. Labeling himself as broken, … Continue reading -=He’s bro/ken=-

Lost again in the confines of the tall pines, The river rushing hurriedly shields me - from the murmurings of my own mind. The bounty of nature heals me, as I search for not, but what I might find. A cold wind brushes my back, and plays upon the straps - of my bright yellow … Continue reading Of Tree Tops and Flying Beasts
Squirrels and chipmunks pitter-patter and chatter, As Fall's warm breath turns to Winter's icy exhalation. The stars in the sky float at ease, before turning into frigid constellations. ~ Autumn being just a tease, of an unpleasant time to come. The smell of decay rides upon the breeze, As the Earth bids adieu to the … Continue reading Goodbye Dear Summer, Hello Newcomer

The darkness is thick except for these crimson rays. Lost, but I’m searching - from here, will I ever find my way? Cold … Continue reading The Crimson Window
A man walks into a police station and addresses one of the officers at the front desk, "Excuse me, sir. I'm Derek and I'd like to turn myself in". The officer looked dismayed, "Turn yourself in, you say? Like... For a crime?" "Yes sir, I'd like to clear my conscience in servitude to the lord." "Aren't … Continue reading How Do You Like Your Pork?

Kristian did an amazing job doing the other half to my story about the Rise and Fall of Marcus and Addison! Check it out!
Last week Mathew, author of Blog of The Wolf Boy posted this beautiful story about Marcus & Addison from Marcus’ point of view. He opened it up for anyone who wanted to tell Addison’s side of the story, so I thought I would give it a shot.
Here is the link to Mathew’s original post, where he tells Marcus’ side of things.
