You don't know what you've got till it's gone. Boy, oh boy... such a commonly used phrase, hm? No, actually, such an overused phrase. Right? Anyone else think it's overused? Just me? Eh. Then again, maybe it's not overused at all. If you feel like those words and the meaning behind them are repeatedly jumping… Continue reading Visits from The Ghost of Christmas Past
I'm a whisper in the wind a trickle in the sea Something that could've been a long forgotten dream I'm a blank name tag To you, another face For me, you're what I'll never have Something I'll never taste You pass by me everyday and never even glance my way In my head, a whirlwind… Continue reading Poem: Does She Know?
Looking back, what I find especially scary is that I was always one of those kids who pledged to never do any drugs. Ever. I wouldn't smoke, and certainly not pop pills. As a kid, I watched it destroy and kill my entire mom's side of the family, and there was no way I was… Continue reading My Experience with Addiction
I was 18 when I first visited California, and though I don't exactly remember my reaction to the place, I do know it was one of those rare occasions where reality turned out to be even better than the fantasy in my head.

Check out my latest Cali Vlog video!
Several days ago, I made a 31 hour cross country road trip, nonstop (minus a 1 1/2 hour nap), from East TN to the West Coast in California. This was a huge step for me as I haven't lived in even the same city as my family since I moved out when I was 18.… Continue reading My First Day in California! (Video)
Days they change to months that'll never stay Like dandelions in the wind the past just blows away Scattered All the colors of yesterday today have faded to grey I remember that place called home on the front porch I used to play There used to be such a magic to my life Like holidays… Continue reading Poem: I used to be a little boy.
Once upon a time, there was a boy who dreamt he'd one day have the world. He imagined he'd grow larger than life and have the world at his feet. He'd venture new and old lands, reach out and touch billions of people, see his name in lights, and maybe even wield the power to… Continue reading Chasing Dreams like I’m on Novocaine
