    Looking out the Window

    In the darkness of night
    I sit by the window
    And stare out at the stars
    Above my head flashes the light of a shooting star
    Here for a mere moment then gone
    I sit in the quiet of a mid summer night
    And feel at peace
    It seems that in this moment of peace
    The worries of this life fade
    I begin to drift off as I gaze upon the stars
    And begin to dream
    My dreams are filled with a man who lived his life but is coming near the end
    As he nears death
    I awaken and look around
    No longer am I in front of the window gazing up at the stars
    No, I am walking down a dark alleyway
    Like the man in my dream
    With death approaching me

    The Walk with Death

    Walking down a dark alley
    Death approached me
    He offered me eternal joy if I were to join him.
    I denied him his request and continued on my way.

    A second time Death approached me promising me great wealth and the desires of my heart if I were to join him, but I denied him a second time and continued on my way.

    A third time death approached me
    Promising me peace and happiness
    I thought about his request for a moment going over all the things I would be leaving behind to join him.
    All of my family, friends, and loved ones.

    I accepted deaths offer and joined him
    We walked side by side, Death telling me all the times he was so near to me.
    I looked at him and smiled
    Knowing that I wanted to wait to greet him till I was an old man, withered and worn out, telling death all the times I wanted to be near to him.

    Hand in hand we continued down the dark alley.
    Once we reached the end, I looked and Death was leading us to hills with green grass fading in the sunset.
    In that quiet moment we both sat down, I took a deep breath, and the sun faded and the darkness surrounded us.

    The Lion

    There I stood, a lion on the highest rock, looking across the expanse of my kingdom. Knowing that one day I shall pass it on to my children and then to their children after.

    I looked to the night sky and wondered what it was like to be free like the birds of the air. As I begin to look away a star soars across the sky and opens up a new realm of possibilities.

    As night turns to dawn, and dawn to day, I lie down and awaken at my desk. No one was around me and no one knows what had gone through my dreams. It was in that moment I chuckled and continued on at my typewriter,

    The Path

    Sometimes the path that we initially start on isn’t the one we stick with. We learn to change and with that change comes a fork in the road that leads us to make a decision. The decision is between our previous ways and habits or something entirely new. So I leave you with the question of, which fork in the road are you going to take?

    You are the moon. No matter what you do, you will always have a dark side.

    Another day has passed and I feel like I wasted it.

    When I walked into the darkness I didn't expect to see you there, but then again you're heart is blacker than the very darkness that surrounds us both. What was I expecting from the love who left me

    A cottage in the woods

    In a cottage in the woods lived a man
    He appeared normal, but was different
    He was his own clan
    He was not insignificant
    Not was he magnificent
    But to him his cottage was a kingdom
    No! His cottage was freedom
    Away from life's hunger for chaos.
