Not a Secret

Not a Secret ~~~~~ I accept my death, though I am not ready to go. That will not matter, if my time ceases to flow. We are all seeking balance, day and the night; End the beginning, despite how we may fight. We shouldn’t act foolishly, courting the reaper. No matter your plans, you may […]

Lies and Truth

Lies and Truth ~~~~~ What ways We wander, Wonder why, Search, seek Twisted trails, Tall tales, Following fools, Meaning morsels, Broken breadcrumbs, Mired meanders, Wide walkways, Paved pathways, Rural roads, Long lanes, Dusty drives, Graveled grades Sleek superhighways, Cacophonous cities, Electronic expressways, Digital dead-ends.
