Quote of the day

“We are children. You guys are the adults. Work together, come over your politics, and get something done.” – Parkland survivor David Hogg



The kids who survived the Parkland shooting bring a firsthand authority to the gun debate that adults can’t match. They’ve kept the issue of gun control in the media a full week after the shootings. These teens are truly extraordinary and this movement will persevere. Nothing is too strong to overcome as long as you have solidarity with everybody around you.

Question of the day.

How does one resurrect their blog from the dead. I know how to bounce back, hell ive had the miss fortune in life of starting from scratch more then once in my 51 years. I’m a fighter and survivor.

Yet my blog remains flatlined…

My Disclosure Policy

My Disclosure Policy

​ Broken Dreams, Restless Heart

All I need is a sheet of paper
and something to write with,
and I can turn the world upside down…..

Don’t try to read into me too deeply
Everything as you know will eventually get
Turned upside down and into something else…

Missing the touch of you…
Thoughts of you never leave my head.
Baby together… just us two.

Something about you and
your comfortable soul,
made it easy to
call your embrace
My home.
I miss hearing you laugh
I’d then catch you
looking at me with a subtle smile
There is no greater
wilderness than a
body you wish
to ravenously
My biggest fear is not
the loneliness i live
with, but what happens
when it becomes too


I’m just a girl who penned a life of broken dreams, but remains a hopeful heart.
