    Know Thyself

    2 years ago

    This poem began as a poem about golf and Life, but it became about knowing myself and what I am capable of. It was inspired on a golf course as I gauged the distance between myself and the green, the hazards in between, the risk, the reward, and which club I would use.(see- "LIFE")

    The Scapegoat

    2 years ago

    Does Life ever seem unfair to you? Does it ever seem like problems pile on top of you, while everyone else is coasting through life? I know I feel that way. Or more accurately, Felt that way. This is my poem, with a clearer hindsight, of feeling like "The Scapegoat" in Life......

    My favorite poet is Henry David Thoreau. I love his optimism and the hope he creates with his writing. "Something Different" is my attempt to capture his wisdom and insight on the human condition.
