The Cabbie He hates the night shift, Black coffee and cigarettes. Call Uber instead.
We live in an angry world where it’s easy to be unkind, Where cursing is our status quo, and the children do not mind. We bully, persecute, and beat the weak into submission, Like domination […]

Sound invades my space, Noise does not respect my place, Silence gives a chase. Sleep chases silence, with heavy-footed stridence, showing its valiance.
Your Breath With your every breath, you keep me up and buoyed, from a drowning world.
Lonely in the Dark Sometimes in the dark, He shutters off loneliness By holding her hand.
