There’s Magic in You Child (A Poem)

There’s magic in you child Don’t let the world take away your light They’re afraid of you cause you shine so bright There’s magic in you child Stop caring what they say They don’t give you the time or the day There’s magic in you child I see it behind your eyes You’re searching for […]

The Lies we Tell Ourselves

A couple weeks ago I did something. Actually, that’s not quite true. After the Switchfoot concert, before I walked out of the venue, I saw a man by the door talking to a couple women. I’ve never met this man but he looked familiar. Could that really be the founder of TWLOHA? I heard of […]

Changes… Maybe?

Music. When I think about my life, I realize music has always been apart of it. My earliest memories include listening to The Temptation’s Christmas vinyl or seeing my mom sing in the church choir when we lived in Virginia.

Why You Shouldn’t Put off Your Hopes & Dreams

I have this idea for a novel. I’ve had this idea for a year. I thought it was a newer idea (think November 2018) but it seems I started writing this novel earlier than that (April 2018). And even though collectively I have around 600 words between my April writing and November writing, I haven’t […]

What Does it Mean to be Who You Are

It sounds so simple: Just be yourself. But we are first shaped by those who raise us and then we are influenced by our peer group. With all of these external forces shaping us, how can we be sure that who we are is who we are? I don’t have a scientific, researched answer for […]

Moving Past Minor Inconveniences

What’s a minor inconvenience? It’s an obstacle to a goal that’s annoying but not big enough to stop forward motion – unless you let it. With working out I’m in the middle. I don’t hate it. I don’t love it either. I don’t mind it because I know it’s good for me and my body […]
