In comparison to mind and thoughts within, Hearts are wild creatures Buried deep in cages of our ribs. The mess it creates is so familiar. * … Read more

A Seemingly Endless Wait

A Tear, The Turmoil and A Response

Trapped In A Filthy Cage

Cage

Smog filled air; choked lungs. Trash filled land. Dirty streets, And filthy garbage mounds. Burning leaves Choking the bees and the birds. Grey stripped puffy tailed squirrels searching for nuts.
