  • Autumn's Sky

    Posted 11-18-2017 by Rodney Warndahl

    Autumn’s sky spans as a hazy grey ocean, Forewarning bold metamorphosis in motion.   On season cessation, resplendence has palled; Somber pallets supplanted lost colors of fall.   Bare boughs sprawl upwards with skeletal fingers; Sun imparts warmth although must struggle to linger.   Leaves, long spiritless, are wither...

  • Time Out

    Posted 11-17-2017 by Jamie Diaz

    Time is a continuous series of irreversible events: Past, Present, and Future.   I can track its history, see it’s movement, predict its path and certainly feel its pressure.   Time exists everywhere yet it only matters to the human species to the natural world time – just is.   Stars are born, live and die with the...

  • Still Resisting (A True Experience) by Lesley Knight

    Posted 10-12-2017 by Lesley Knight

    Racked in this solitary cell. I’ve been pacing alone silent for a very long time, Wanting to express what’s really been on my mind. You’ve counted me out without even looking back, Do you even know that I still got your back? I know I was blind due to my rage for liberation, Struggling and striving and caught up in tribulati...

  • The Deal

    Posted 10-02-2017 by Daryl Keener

    This morning I watched my last sunrise as a free man Though it was beautiful, my soul was stricken I did not want to commit to these chains The chains that had cost me my freedom But when one makes a deal with the Devil He must also pay the piper There is nothing left but hollowness, an empty shell A vessel that once filled with life Now ho...

    Posted 09-22-2017 by Levon Lord

    “MARKINGS”   I have markings on my body to remember all I’ve done, I’ve lived a life full of sin and hate what I’ve become. I’ve tried to hard to be the man my family truely miss, But it seems as me doing so relies on more that wish. I pray to God and ask for help to keep me within reach, Maybe I can ...

    Posted 09-20-2017 by Jermaine Robinson

      Hopeless days with dream filled nights Hoping that someday I'll finally get to see the light My sunshine is no more One can only hope the sounds of happiness come through my door. Life as I know it no longer exist Just a memory of my past that leaves my eyes in mist As I close my eyes and remember your scent Just the thought of you i...

  • “LOVE ME”

    Posted 09-17-2017 by Donald Haywood

    Love me because I try to touch life within the framework of uncertainty! Love me in the shadows of my indecisions as I strive to gain knowledge! Love me in silence of my hurts and the noise of my confusions! Love me for the feelings of my heart, not the fears of my mind! Love me in my search for truth, though I may stumble upon fallacy! L...
