The Duality of Beauty.

Beauty exists amongst the shadows, in places where darkness thrives and hiding the sun becomes a norm. Beauty exist behind streams of tears, when emotion becomes physical on melanated cheeks and drowned pores. Beauty exists in seasons of loneliness, in moments where our beating heart is the only sound echoed in our ears. Beauty exists…

Music | Spoken Word

She remembered the tubes.Each pierced into her skin, never had she seen such beautiful masterpieces. She visualized violins. She thought of how her neck would arch to fit into the bow of the violin, as if she and the violin could become one. And her heart beat so perfectly in rhythm you would think it’s…

Rush- a short story.

“Wynonna hurry up!” Mom hollers from the front corridor. Her feet stomp and a suitcase drags through the upstairs hallway, down the steps, and out the front door. I rummage through my bedroom closet and toss random clothes into the open suitcase behind me. “Okay, shirts, pants, sweaters, shoes… what am I missing?” I recite…

Worldly Temptations.

We are children of great light yet society has blinded our sight.   You called me when I was in sin and now I can live again.   I didn’t deserve your bountiful grace yet you opened me up and made a place—   your house exists within this body to live in bliss and…

I worship you daily as if my life is not my own– and it isn’t, it’s yours and through you I’ve grown   into a vessel to be used by you, to fulfill your purpose the way you see through.   Teach me to stay humble even in moments of victory for you give and…

Connections.

Isn’t it funny how fickle life is? One moment we are sailing on roaring waves and open seas. The next our ship rots in salt saturated waters, until it breaks apart.   Perhaps, it’s time to create a new life— filled with genuine interactions, not  one  exchanged  for goods or ‘connections’, but one that  resonates…

Rushed.

Be still  little one.   Know that age  comes with time– never to be rushed but to be taken in.   For a rushed life only leaves you empty, as experiences are forgotten quickly.   Stay young  as long as you can and learn to enjoy the things you have now.   For one moment…
