My Reflection (POEM)

Something inside of me, is yearning to reach out And make me scream to the top of my lungs But instead, I don’t. Nobody can see me trying Only you. I can’t find it in my heart to let go or give up Even though I can’t see you Faith in something that may bring […]

Ways to Love (POETRY)

“GOD, show me the ways to love a loveless world So much to account for And nothing but fingers pointing – everybody looking at everybody to blame On why time goes on but things never change Why are people so damn rude and unkind Why do we judge others when some come to finally lose […]

“The View Through My Window” (Poem)

Why, oh Why, Do We Waste So Much Time? (Excerpt from book, Suicidal NOT: Maximize Your Mental Health – Volume One by R.K.B.)

I wonder if people will hate my work or question my talent. I wonder if I will ever stop wondering about things that at the end of the day, I cannot control.
