After the Earthquake

Earthquake rattles bones
Feeling rounds of aftershocks
In pain and uncertainty
How to face revolvers of old,

Free Originality

so you think
you cannot accomplish
what Inner Compass
calls you to do
create your own path
originality intact
allow yourself to
live life anew.

The Seductiveness of Hate

to rekindle love, laughter, thunder or

loosen hidden waterfalls enchanted.

Once again rising strong, personal truth

awakened to an original purpose.
