ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi. I enjoy reading novels of many genres, and writing poetry/short stories. I'm just a beginning to start writing again. I was introduced to it in Grade 3 and in Grade 5 I began to write more under the influence of a specific teacher. One of my stories was published in the local paper, but I haven't published anything since that. Currently I'm in Grade 9.

Quake and Other Pieces

Prayer

help me
oh Lord
for I am in need of some guidance
I have become
something I've resisted for years
oh Lord
is there a cure for what ails me?
is there a hope
for wanting
a satisfying life?
dear Lord
help me
I need peace.

Intuition

it is beyond
what the eyes see
and what the ears
can hear
it is beauty
that cannot be expressed
by simple words
it is age old wisdom
i knew
before i was born..

Quake

disintegration
tumbling..
from my eyes
dust flying
light.. fading
walls collapsing
the earth
throws up
her belly
and falling
between the cracks
we are
crying
..for a breath
..for hope
my breath..
is trying
i am weak
too weak..

The Bet

a past i wished to forget
the future that i planned to stop
everything that existed in time
I sought to become
this burning in my spirit
makes me wish
I was an angel
a goddess, maybe something more
I saw within myself
a power I could not believe in
a gift from God?
or sorcery beyond control?
I made the bet
I have yet to win.

Where Leaves Fall

crisp
.. air
floating in oblivion
sailing through
life, itself
there is beauty
in humility
beauty of the damned
in the depths of
the sea
where leaves
fall...
