Reflections

What comes out of me is poetry thoughts have not been formed Sadness, pain, hurt Face in the dirt. Brutality, destruction, devastation Deeply cut Powerless Rights are stripped away Today.

My First Blog Post

Everybody is doing the best they can with the knowledge they have. I had an insight about this – a sight from within!  It struck me like a lightning bolt!  I saw something I hadn’t seen before.  I saw something that changed me!  It changed everything.  I’ve had several of these insights, but this is…
