Who Are The Damaged - Who Are The Broken?

October 7, 2019

Wake up flat


Not happy


Not sad


No anticipation


No dread


The day will pass


No particular hurry


Absent urgency


Chained to valueless toil


The damaged shuffle 


Scraping scraps of meager meaning


Tightly holding on


Courageous is the struggle


To maintain


To not take the step


To not become the broken

I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm.

 For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.


It is their stories I tell. 


“Who am I?”


I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, scarcely any renown.

However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable.


I invite you to visit my Amazon Author Pages

if you are so inclined please purchase a copy and leave a review.


Thank you,
