To Be, or Not To Be?

looking up (1)


Be that to which others look up to attain,

Be something of value, of richness to gain;

Be someone who’s higher, above what’s below,

Be upright, authentic, and trump status quo.

Flames of Freedom



Pressure and heat and

the presence of flames

(that deadly hellish

Trinity) made her

kindling temperature

an inevitability. And oh!

the pain,

the raw ooze as fire

tattooed skin; but as she

surrendered, her fear

went up in smoke. Her

selfishness and pride

burned away, searing

suffering soul, until only

true silver remained. Now,

her light is a beacon –

infinity’s fire – a

path of illumination for

others to follow the

Flames of Freedom.


It’s pretty cool what you can do with a burning stick at a campfire…

Nip It In the Bud



Don’t give the wind

the satisfaction

of ruffling your

feathers or bending

you out of shape;

nip it in the bud,

and bloom.
