But suddenly, a crack opens up the sedimentary and covered in … Continue reading Like A Phoenix

The fresh water cleanses my soul From all the travesties I endured The water flows down my body and into my soul It takes over my creation and spills into my imagination No longer am I plagued by past memories that suffocated me with sorrow No, the lake purifies me and fills me with abundance, Replacing the … Continue reading Drink of the lake

When in reality we really should thrive off bartering and community collective efforts. Patriarchy and the desire to hold onto outdated ideals are pieces to a stinking onion.
