A Poem, The Devil Won’t Come Here

I wrote this poem a few months back and figured it was worth a share. It focuses on the topic of the devil preying on the weak and hurting. If we remain strong in our faith through our trials and tribulations, we can continue to keep the devil away. A crack of thunder as aContinue reading “A Poem, The Devil Won’t Come Here”

A Haiku, The Fear

      I got thinking of the four-letter word that can dictate so much of our lives. It is an emotion within ourselves that is naturally occurring. It can be physical or mental.      In this haiku, I focused on the mental aspect of fear. If we let the fear consume our minds, our mental state beginsContinue reading “A Haiku, The Fear”

In short, aContinue reading “A Poem, The Devil visits”

An Inspirational Poem, The Graveyard of Hopes

I recently came up with this poem out of thin air. I got all situated to start a new chapter in a novel I am working on and got entirely sidetracked with creating a poem. I’d get a verse down and say, “okay, I’ll finish it tomorrow.” However, as I am sure you are allContinue reading “An Inspirational Poem, The Graveyard of Hopes”

An Intimate Look at the Mental and Physical Aspects of the Fitness of Life

**Right off the bat, I’ll add the disclaimer that there are two shirtless pics in this blog. I don’t want anyone who may read this to be caught off guard by the pics. They are used to depict a past version of myself and the journey back to that version.

We all have tons of work and projects to complete, but it is essential to put family first.

Experience Nature’s Majesty to Clear Your Mind

Writing can be a grueling process, as we all know. The subject matter, content, and the overall quality of writing all suffer if we suffer mentally.

A Compassionate Quote, Kiss the Ground and Be Reunited

“You long to be reunited with your loved ones. It’s understandable. If you are in dire need of their touch, kiss the ground, for that is where they have returned.” When I wrote this dialogue for a female protagonist, Genevieve Riley, I immediately started going through my resources to see where I have heard itContinue reading “A Compassionate Quote, Kiss the Ground and Be Reunited”

Living Blessed, even in 2020

Originally posted on Laura Gibson Kudey:
It’s been one year. One whole blessed year. Like marriage or a child’s age, it feels like a lifetime and yesterday all at once. On December 11th, 2019, I was being prepped for surgery. My surgeon prepared my mind and body for the worst. A 17 cm mass engulfed…

What’s Your Motivation?

For the cursed town in my novel, a small brazen group formed to help fend off the antagonist. Every night, they would put themselves in danger to protect the civilians. For them, it was a hard transition, going from living a carefree life to an ingredient in a devil’s soup. At any moment, The WalkingContinue reading “What’s Your Motivation?”

Break Free From The Shackles of Time

Time is a crazy thing. One cannot stop it as it marches us toward inevitable adversities. We trudge forward with the passing time. We often hear phrases such as, “well, the time is ticking away” and, “it’s just a matter of time.” Why do we let time dictate such a large part of our lives?Continue reading “Break Free From The Shackles of Time”

A Painting of a Person Represents a Tableau of Reality

A painting of a person represents a tableau of the reality of a life, or lives, that currently exist or existed previously. The textured canvas holds the aspirations of the figures within that frozen moment. Timeless, the painting connects generations to life, a vision, or a world that once was. When I came up withContinue reading “A Painting of a Person Represents a Tableau of Reality”

That’s Just The DIY’er in Me: The Kitchen

Motivation is enigmatic within us. When will it hit us? Will it hit us? How close to the edge before we get that burst of adrenaline and decide now is the time? For me, it was in my first home. The year was 2016, I wanted to do something special for my wife, and weContinue reading “That’s Just The DIY’er in Me: The Kitchen”
