Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

"I cannot jump the distance. You'll have to toss me!"--Gimli, LOTR

I am a complete nerd. I got the Ring of Power for my birthday.

Book recommendations:
The Oath--Frank E. Peretti
Lord of the Rings--J.R.R. Tolkien

Song recommendation: "Awake" by Beckah Shae

I'm going to meet the King someday!
And I'm super pumped!

on eating donuts for breakfast this morning

this morning my mother came home
from market place
and told us that they
were almost all out of
bread and milk and chicken breasts
and we asked her
“why”
and she said there was a shortage
all over the country
of animal products
“the industries are breaking down”
she said
“but i bought donuts”
so we sat
eating our donuts
mine with sprinkles
and my siblings’ with cream
and i thought
“i think i’m lactose intolerant
a milk shortage won’t affect me”
but i was wrong
everything affects me now
i cannot escape this gentle
breaking down
of everything i once thought i knew
