Life: As Viewed Through a Lens

where will we turn

when the sun hides

when the tides

roll in roll out

wash the shore clean


our mark


as the grains slip through

the glass

shattered pieces scattered

in all directions

bellowing death

wail perforating eardrums

fall deaf

eyes blind



of our influence

we’re all running

treading water

in this muddy pool



forging a legacy each troubled step

some prevail

but do they


the world is small

viewed through a lens

I currently reside in Indiana where I am taking classes through Penn State University to complete my Bachelors in Finance and work for a non-profit clinic. I was always passionate about reading and writing and I intend to use this blog to hone my craft and to entertain others. Please feel free to reach out and provide feedback or to discuss my work.
