how broken have we become

How broken have we become that kindness has no voice in every day that shines how broken have we become that goodness is a maze with no escape how broken have we become when tears are burning words of weakness and dismay so broken we have become the seed of doubt has run its course through the earth and grown to the sky a beanstalk of lies so broken have we become we accept the lies and guns the dead children who cried and their parents who wished it was instead them who…Read more …

Pain is when you know

My senses melt away like ice on the sidewalk of a summer day the color fades, smell goes away the tingle of touch, the taste of rust, the sound of music, and life continues anyway if it's just words on a page a black and white photo crumbled and thrown away if it's still perceived it's still worth living It hurts, it makes me crazy, self worth slowly melts away and all that's left is the condensed version of me without any baubles confusing Pain is when you know you're alive confusion and…Read more …

Adapting to Sound after Cochlear: a really freaking long post

So I haven't written about my cochlear in a while. Let me tell you this: I am deaf. I wear a cochlear on the right side of my head. When I was in first grade, I was given a hearing test. I was told that they don't give this test to kids: I was special. I was going to be one of the first kids in the world to get this hearing test. It would map out the breadth of what I could hear. It was a really long hearing test. So long,…Read more …

What makes a good man be?

A million energetic balls of power rattling inside the cage Like fireflies eyes opening what havoc have wrought these dreams Clang the screech of sound rips all your dreams bloody down Silken webs of lies stitched together are not enough to save us all These images coming in the words of reported din shadows seen before the light the sound was a God spoken word torn asunder before it was heard by the shattered ears of all this earth Death and dying bled and crying sweet misery stacked high above the trees and…Read more …
