Have faith, whether it be a higher power or another person, for it brings a foundation of confidence you can share with the world.
Morning Warning has been a great short story, complete with strong characters, smooth storytelling, and a twist you won’t see coming. The one thing that has hurt it was the cover art, from a marketing stand point. I wanted it to reflect the main character, which is an 11 year old boy, but it just didn’t sell it. Now, that’s about to change. Here it is, the new cover for Morning Warning!
Dry your tears little one,
for it’s a brand new day.
You may have never before had fun,
We will teach you how to play.
rest your heart little soul,
we will protect you starting today.
Life before has taken a terrible tole,
but never again will we let it stray.
Calm your fears my dear child,
for there is no reason to dismay.
Taken from the darkness and defiled,
taken from those of abusive display.
Feel the love in your brave little heart,
hear these words I have to say.
Never again will the darkness start,
You’re with us now for each and every day.
God bless all those dear children stuck in horrible situations. May your Angels find you in the darkness and lead you to the light.
Today or tomorrow,
In joy or in sorrow,
To take or to borrow,
chaos or ducks in a row.
To drink or go thirsty,
To ignore or to see,
To be or not to be,
To capture or set free.
Feel joy or in pain,
To lose or to gain,
To be shy or vain,
Be dry or play in the rain.
These mean nothing to you,
Deciding what to do,
Yet they all hold a clue,
On how to make it through.
The choices you make,
Will give or will take,
fate is at stake,
So don’t make a mistake.
Be wise and take a beat,
Think about what’s at your feet,
Repel or to openly greet,
choices are a remarkable feat.
The squeaky wheel may get the grease, but too much noise and they replace it. Choose your battles wisely.
In June, I’ll be releasing my third official Poetry Collection. Following the tradition of “The Disaster that is Emotion” (2006) and “Shattered Reflections” (2012), this book will be titled “Shattered Reflections: Poetry in chaos”. As with the last book, there will be previously published works, but this time there will be far more new stuff in comparison. Stay tuned for more details, and keep reading as I post more stuff on here. Thanks for reading!
One more kick, rushing up the field.
One more push, I shall never yield.
Another yard, the goal is in sight.
Another angle, lining it up just right.
Keep moving forward, They’re coming for me.
Keep moving closer, the path is clear to see.
With a sharp kick, the ball bolts ahead.
With clear validation, for each bead of sweat I shed.
The sound of the net as it crashes to a stop.
The cheer of my teammates as they bounce and hop.
I scored my first soccer goal ever on this day.
I’m making sure this memory will never fade away.
For my son Liam, scoring his first ever soccer goal on Saturday 4/28/2018, and has never looked back.
To love all of life,
Is to never have a doubt,
Believe in yourself
Please take a moment and head over to Amazon. The link below will show you the list of work I have available to be purchased. There are Audio Books, eBooks, and even paperback. Coming soon, there will also be a new Poetry Book as well. More info as it happens on that project.
Also, in my personal life, a horrible situation has led me to request help. Three wonderful children with Autism, are on the verge of losing their first ever trip to meet Mickey Mouse. Thousands of dollars are already invested, and if this nightmare of a situation didn’t happen, we would be financially sound. Either purchasing a book at Amazon above, or donating to the GoFundMe below would help us. Thanks and many blessings to you all.
The darker the times,
The more tragic it feels,
Victims of such crimes,
As corruptions and misdeals.
Yet there is still joy,
in which to help cope,
for even such a ploy,
cannot shake such hope.
Through the madness,
and all of the pain,
tears of such sadness,
falling like the rain.
We will rise up once more,
and shine in such wonderful light,
We can open up new doors,
when we never give up the fight.
