Strength

092 (3)

We carry scars

Inside and out.

Burning like stars,

Stinging with doubt.

 

Some quickly fade,

Others never do;

A price paid

For being you.

 

Blood’s been spill

When right’s wrong.

What doesn’t kill

Makes you strong.

Honesty

april15brevity

Truth’s pieced

Like a

Quilt since

Everybody lies.

 

Random bits

Stitched together

That protect

And hide.

 

But maybe

That’s the

Only way

Anyone survives?

CAUSE AND EFFECT

 

You can’t feel love

Until your heart breaks,

You won’t soar above

When your soul aches.

 

You can’t stand

Until you crawl.

You don’t land

Until you fall.

DEARLY BELOVED

dearlybelovedfor headercoverOnce upon a time, before Obergefell v. Hodges, Donnie’s mother wants him to marry and give her grandchildren. “The patter of little feet will be like beating to my heart.” But Donnie is gay. The coming-out talk doesn’t help; his mother is persistent. Will Donnie’s fairy tale wedding come true? Can he get his scrump buddy to say “I do”?

Life changes following the death of a child. Kumbaya Night featuring a drag queen gospel trio at Dearly Beloved furthers the transformation.

DEARLY BELOVED is available in Kindle Edition and paperback.
