when we're afraid

FREE WRITING

it's a lovely time when it is warm outside. it warms our hearts, and we feel like singing. there is a texture about warm air. it oppresses sound; we cannot sing, blessed with the extraordinary torturous talent of understanding. have you ever been brought to your knees?

the word "no," out of context, means nothing at all. a denial, a rejection, a casual refusal, said many times a day. for even when we do not vocalize, voice "no" into the...

secretive people

FREE WRITING

if i could count to a million on one hand

for it is a crime to exist in silence,
veil the world of what we can, the face of what we...
