A Face in the Darkness

Legs blocked the walkway of the bottom bleacher. The vacant dark corner across the gymnasium beckoned Allie to come hither and hide in the shadows it provided. No one knew her; she had remained as faceless now as she had on the first day at this school. Coming to this dance was a mistake. Who Read More read more »

That Moment When … An Open Apology

Typhoon Haiyan: Three Years After

On November 8, 2013, typhoon Haiyan slammed across the Visayas region of the Philippines. Having a storm strength of Category 5 and a wind speed of 195 miles per hour, this storm, known as Yolanda to us, left 1.9 of the total 12.9 million people homeless. Three years after this incident, many still experience trauma as they recall that fateful day when the unexpected storm surge happened. It was extremely catastrophic and I guess people were not really alarmed of a storm surge warning. What was a stor... read more »

Independent Political Party Beliefs

Today's political climate hardly encourages independent thinking about the best way to move the country forward. Some on the left make efforts to appeal to a broader segment of the American population through its platform; others on the right do the same. Between the two, amiddle ground is not always visible. When the middle speaks out of the shadows, one side or the other may attempt to shout it down. However, there is amiddle ground for those with independent political party beliefs.For many, it is not... read more »

The Illusion of Power

Through out history all over the world people have chased after power and have often used all kinds of means to attain it. This quest for power has lead to wars, the deaths of many as well as the oppression of many people.

Even through the imagination of man he has created characters such as Superman and other comic book characters to satisfy his longing fo... read more »

the sunshine blogger award. (thoughts).

Somehow, these awards are the waters drowning my head—creating spirals of thoughts that a reader has actually read one of my stories. Among these thousand doubts, there is somebody swimming across the sea just to get to me.

the devil kisses her lips. (thoughts).

The quiet volcanoes release its molten rocks from the white mouths. Raging and fuming, it delivers the dislike it carries from what it sees.
