“Shrapnel and Ice” by Mar G.-Amorena



Your soul… my soul… just black stains in a cold, empty space.

Breaking pieces, a million crystals. A bloody explosion, uncontrollable.

An spiral, dark like a throat, melting around shrapnel and ice.

An unbearable sound, imploding among our ruins and ashes.


Before the thunderstorm.

Where are you? Here, all the time.

You… your soul… mine… just black stains in a cold, empty space.

“You can quit those ghosts but they won’t quit you” by Paul Zinder

You can try to run if you dare, you can try to hide but it just makes for more despair.

You have to make them one with you its the only way to over come and get threw. Let them know you are not afraid. Light and candle and think in a good way.

The cold dust does not just kick up by itself in the back corner of your house or the bottom depths of your basement all by itself.

Its energy, too much negative energy. You have to love it, respect it , just know it s a natural part of life and live with it. Everything in moderation though even death do not let it suck you in.

Just as nature changes so should you. There is a time and place for everything. Nature guides us. Summer , enjoy the light. Spring flowers love and the mind is bright.

Fall out with the old in with the new, the new bold energy takes us threw. Winter cold, dead, everything if you let it over whelm you it will.

Never forget those ghost yet don’t let them over take you. Your soul is your and let always your light shine bright and you can make it over come and get threw.

I grew up In Detroit MI, I Have also been to over 20 states in The US, Windsor Canada, Nice place . I would say my Favorite States I have visited are Louisville Kentucky , and Colorado Springs Colorado. I also Lived in Korea for 6 years. I was in a lot of places, I was in Combat prefer not to say were. I have lived in The Philippines and Guam , that was after I got out of the army. The army gave me a unique perspective in life, and how great we really have it in life seeing a lot of poor places all over the world. There are some great places in the world also and I learned there are a lot of things America could takes notes for and catch up with. I will never understand why we do not have more speed Trains in America for example. I think it would be great for tourism for example here its safe , fun and easy to use.

“A filter for quitters, a fence for the scared.” by Mar G.-Amorena

She said she didn’t feel the galaxy outside, because her mind was chaotic enough as to get lost into.

And growls, howls, aches. Crawls, yells, cries. The mud is thick and your energy tears off.

And the obscurest night demolishes any kind of doubt. Because in the deepest dark, you can feel nothing but peace.

A filter for quitters, a fence for the scared.

Only the brave. Only the bold, only the blind… Only the blind… and the Fierce.

“Today, Tomorrow” by Nicole Heinz

Image ownership: Frank Machalowski


The day begins,

the sun is set

Yellow rays filtering

through a blue horizon

Thoughts align and don’t

to make moments

appear and disappear

Hello turns to goodbye

Afternoon headed towards

evening tables and soon-enough

night stars light the windows

All is done

All has passed, all that can

or will, today

Yet, before that time encroaches

we had that could be, what if

Why did that happen, maybe tomorrow

we’ll know the answer

Rising and creeping through our minds

“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.” Edgar Allan Poe

“Criticism and mental well-being” by Joseph Vasquez

Trust me, I’m no Doctor or Psychologist, but I believe without a doubt that constant criticism is a mental disorder.

I understand the basics. Eg; I didn’t like the movie, the food wasn’t good, but some people just can’t accept reality. Eg; The team I rooted for lost, they must have been paid off, or the Refs wanted them to lose

It’s like some people live through a brand or a team, that’s no way to live.

I do criticize myself often. Eg; did I respond to this reader’s email fast enough? Am I insulting reader’s intelligence with this chapter? Why am I lying down when I could be working for the lifestyle that I say I want?

Criticizing yourself too much is bad for your mental health. It can affect your thoughts, it can make you second guess yourself, it can drive you crazy.

I want to challenge the world to stop with the constant criticism, you don’t like the way your team played? Go to tryouts and do it better, don’t go online and say what you would have done, go do it.

Criticism leads to excuses and excuses are dream killers. So I ask, what’s more important to you, building your dreams, or criticizing the way someone is building theirs?    

I live in beautiful, sunny Southern California, the longest I’ve gone without a dog is two weeks, and I’m going to write until I can’t anymore.
