fear and rage as raw as pain

dwell  within the devil’s jungle

 I was born of wicked waters

quaking in her red lagoon

cast away from ivory towers

stained with pearls of misery

wild blood

burns in my hands

 unbound by heaven’s harmony


with fists that throb and howl

I will strike

for I am free.

One thought on “Alive

  1. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!
