Until it happens to you (Short Story)

For 33 years, I’d lived a good life. I was part of a loving family as I was growing up. I was a keen traveller from a young age and afforded opportunities to go to various countries around the globe. I had a stable, awe-worthy job as a financial manager, where the company treated us…

Belief (Poem)

With our impulses pulsating, Holding the pulse of Satans hand with an arm on the harmonica of an angels harmony, in the harms and virtues we see and do not see in us, both the lowest of the low and highest of the high. Breathing heavily, like thieves of jeopardy flicked on and off between…

Justice foretold (Poem)

Intangible cords and chains, decapitating the intellect, Incorporating corpses to brains; a fascinating intercept, How a tool so powerful, can be rendered as senseless, Leaving us as devoured fools, to our offenders – defenceless Shackles on the mind, systems that aim to paralyse, Tackling our designs, false admissions televised, Enticing to deceive, placed limitations on…

Silence speaks (Poem)

Silence serves a greater wisdom, Than idle talk or vacant expression, And we could avoid these collisions, If we walk, and take a lesson,   The losses from our silence, Are easier to recompense, Than what crosses the line with, Words that were never meant,   So often we might speak without thought, Speech lacking…
