Literature
A Simple Storm
Thunder crashed overhead as the slate grey sky begins to weep,
The trees and flowers from the ground these tears they will surely keep,
The life that watches with baited breath as the tears they fall and splash,
Shall move along the with cover to protect them for fear of falling victim and turning into ash,
Through the night until the morn a constant vigil they will stand,
Keeping track of the quickly softening sand,
While the thunder overhead brings with it bright and flashing lightning,
Creatures large and small seek cover because they find this to be frightening,
From the dawn until the day's dusk shall the life be wary,
For when the storm does pass many shall be merry,
Through the night and with the day we find that there is no pain,
But in the end we must remember, the gods are in the Rain.

Literature
On Crimson Waters
Like the ebb and flow of the ocean, the ups and downs of life allow us to know that we are alive.
For every up, there must be a down, so too must people come and go from our lives.
We have become so dependent on the company of others that we forget what it’s like to be alone.
There are, of course, exceptions to the rule. Those who avoid people entirely begin to feel as though they are being shunned, when the truth is they isolate themselves.
It is the self-destruction of our need to interact with others that can cause a person to go from lonely to destructive.
We see and hear about people who decide to take their self-destructive ideals and turn them against the very people whom they refused to interact with.
The death of men, women, and especially children can be avoided if we are only willing to watch the crowds for those who need someone to talk to, who need a shoulder to cry on.
Not only is society responsible for people who go bad, society is also responsible for each other

Literature
Fuel of the Soul
Passions rise while people listen,
Used in war and the kitchen.
Both of good, and of evil;
Different sounds for different people.
From Rock and Pop, to Classical and Dubstep,
People define what they find peaceful.
Though it soothes the savage beast,
It can spark a violent crescendo.
Shattering the boundaries of race and culture,
Music is a beautiful reminder that we are not vultures.
Play the cello, or the guitar;
Music will always take you far.

Literature
Sorrow
Distant memories fade as the light that once welled up within pours out of the eyes that are filled with sorrow from the failed expectations of the new day.
Leaving only demons and ghosts to converse over whether or not it’s time to tell the poor wretch that he was fooled by the promise of a better tomorrow. Few there are who could meet the expectations set before them,
Yet even fewer can say they made it out alive,
Where then does it leave me when asked,
“What happened to your passions?”
Drowned in the rage and sorrow of the black river that is failure,
But can we call it failure if I haven’t actually attempted to pursue the dream cooked up by the bright ambitions of a young man,
Who found himself deep within the unforgiving desert by the way of rain that drowned the sound of naysayers who were believed to be a toxic influence,
But were truly voices asking to be heard, to offer help to bring the young man above the rain that began to drown everything around him

Idea
I see you in the night
We meet daily
I follow you home
I invade your dreams
I lay next to you in the morning
You write me down not knowing why
I give you reason
You shape me
You help me grow
I give you strength
I give you hope
You steal my life
You profit from me
I never complain
I give you everything
You never thank me
You will die eventually
I am immortal

Truth
At the well of souls I kneel, awaiting death’s grand appeal, for though I’ve lived a thousand lives, those around us just tell lies, Ancient battles of the past, catch up to us all to fast, though I believe I cannot die, when I do no one should cry, for death is merely part of life, often causing lots of strife, since there is nothing we can do, look to the Long Roads End, for that is where I bid adieu.

Activity


I work very hard every day to be able to function normally. Sadly it's not always achievable, and I have to learn to accept that. Between the psych elements that I experience from schizophrenia and depression, and the bizarre physical elements that I'm still getting used to from MS, I deal with a lot that puts me at functioning below normal. So while I may attempt to draw and sketch as though nothing is wrong with me, I have to keep in mind that if I cannot do it for some reason, or I lose my will to create, then I just need to save it for later and move on. Eventually I will come back to what I was working on.  It might be frustrating for myself to accept, but it is something that I think I can come to terms with and learn to live with.

Something I drew using a reference for the first time. 

Artrage

Life goes on and I've been learning to live with MS while also reincorporating art back into my life. I've been drawing maps mostly. Using them to flex my art skills a bit so that I can do something. I experience the urge to draw frequently, but it's summoning the energy to do so that I'm trying to live with. It's a bit maddening.
