Luna

She came out of the dusk and like the night she stole my sight; Blocking my eyes from all else that might be deemed beautiful. Her embrace was a cold comfort that promised refuge yet birthed monsters. I fell into her hypnotic trance and followed wistfully in her deceptive glow. Then Truth came bursting over the horizon,…

Lessons From Dagobah

Star Wars is my absolute favorite childhood fad! I had all the different lightsabers, plastic ships, and the battle strategies for taking down the empire! As a kid striving to be good and to be helpful to the world, I was inspired by Luke Skywalker and I wanted so much to be a Jedi! As an…

OpinonBook

It has been quite the week for Facebook propaganda and debates! Not a day has passed where I haven’t seen some major “opinion war” take place on the feed, and the thing is that it’s been horrifying!

A Millennial Existence

Who am I? Do I even want to know? What happens if I figure it out? Who cares? If I could hop a train to whatever nowhere my self is hiding then I’d probably, at least, kinda-sorta consider getting on. I’d probably even complete my goal of self-discovery if I’d make the effort to stop…

“Classical Education” (A Short Story)

“Alright now! Hurry up and get off, I ain’t got all day!” Johnny stumbled onto the sidewalk as the bus sped away before the doors had barely shut. He walked toward his house, searching the windows for any sign of his dad. Nothing. The 12-year-old hesitantly made his way to the front door, the pit…
