A place of illusion.

Windswept nights.

Are your eyes deceiving you?

Has a waterfall appeared

where once stood a beach?

A river to replace an ocean.

Anything is possible.

If you believe in it.




Some days you want to escape

to a place far away.

Meet new people,

Leave old baggage behind.

Open the proverbial door

to see if the grass is greener

on the other side.

But most of the time it isn’t.

A door balanced at the edge of a pier

might not be holding the answers to your dreams.

Home may be the place that has had the answers all along.

I feel lost and confused.

I feel dizzy and unsure of myself.

My mind is being pulled

in opposite directions.

What do I want?

What is the most important

thing for me to do?

After my family,

I need time for me.

To figure out what I want.

I want to create.

To throw paint on a wall.

Not really.

I want to keep writing.

To write my blog and

my next book.

Everyone leave me alone.

I want to write.
