For whom do we mourn when we weep to the witness of death? ’Tis the deathly departed… Our own death imparted… The desire wholehearted… . . . . to be born when we weep to the witness of sobbing breath. For whom do we plant our purpose beyond pure fated futility? ’Tis the beloved, ’tis … Continue reading Who’s Afraid to Bake A Cake
Am I Easy?
The rainbow of the internet has only two colors. And this is the way people like it to be. So abhorrently opposed to seeing the other colors. And this is the way people want it to be. If only one color ever existed in the world. They'd ironically persist on inventing more. Hidden behind words of virtuous … Continue reading Am I Easy?

He promptly arrives at work in his cheap pick-up truck; then devours a cheap breakfast … Continue reading Complacent & Christian
Hubris and Hedonism
I know another man. He awakes each morning to soft chimes from his iPhone; then scrolls facebook, tumblr, path and twitter as prone.

He climbs in the shower and washes his body face and … Continue reading Hubris and Hedonism
I want to tell you a story about a man, a man I know. He is not special or exceptional, by any stretch. He is adequate in looks and mental capacity. Perhaps, even below. He is a man of the lord and he wraps his existence around his proclivity of faith. He does not have … Continue reading Mobile Misogynist
