    Behold! A singing river, vast and deep, Littered with flecks of dazzling transience, Toward which man flocks in smothering heaps Where battered feet encroach the ambience. A towering mountain upon the plain That refracts the sun's gleaming golden rays, With majesty lost and enthrallment slain ...

Too young to sink my teeth into its flesh, my humanity, Too obtuse to encircle its girth, I gaze, enamored by the picture...

    The music on the radio played in a hushed melody, muffled by the cadence of frigid winter rain cascading onto the windshield. An obtuse numbness to the host of sounds overwhelming the atmosphere swelled inside as the brakes of my dad’s truck let out an earsplitting screech upon coming to an abrupt...

    Kick. You feel the pounding of tiny toes Hear a vivacious heart beating for the first time. But what if this kicking you feel Is really the hand of a higher power? Knitting me together In this bed of security A shelter from the unknown And this life inside of you Now known by so few Wil...

    The moment I set foot in the lush green grass I knew the place was alive. Maybe it was the way the rays of the July sun glistened through the creamy white clouds. It was like God’s fingers were reaching down to pick up shards of glass after a raging storm. Or maybe . . . it was the way the tranqu...

    They hurt me so bad I was unrecognizable. Like a rose withering in the rain. So I looked up to the clouds and asked for an answer. Why? I waited and yearned, sobbed and shook with misunderstanding. All I ever wanted was to understand and to be understood. Then I came face to face wit...

    You look outside and there is nothing but rain and thunder. The darkness is thick and impenetrable; you must face this storm alone. Every step you take scars you mentally, socially, physically, and emotionally. You are an adolescent living with a devastating condition called depression. Unfortun...

    ?Prologue It’s been five years now, but I haven’t fulfilled my promise to him. I can’t until I let go, but I’m not emotionally prepared to do so. I tread along a frosty path, finding alleviation in the fact that he is still lingering behind me. I gaze helplessly into the austere win...

    Have you ever wondered how lonely living in the harshness of discrimination would be? Many African people, many of which have traveled abroad, have found out far too quickly. They have marveled in sorrow at the discriminatory remarks made towards them and their people. They have bristled at how t...

    Maybe I should have held you a little closer that callous winter’s night. When sun poured in and out the window to my right. Earth was laden with whirls of placid snow. Luminescent stars poured through the infinite black sky. I breathed in that smell. But it wasn’t smokiness in the air. I...

    ? “No Name Face” October, 1795 To the No Name Face, You gaze into the barren battlefield; the frigid cold sends shudders through your spine. Breath comes in smoky puffs through your hard pressed lungs, and the skin covering your haggard bones is pa...
