Served in the U.S. Army, attended and graduated from The University of Texas-Arlington with a bachelors in psychology and minor in sociology


When the twilight comes and chases away the light,
The echoes of loves lost chime on through the night.
The cascade of whispers keep flooding my mind, the reflections I see make me wish I was blind.
My mind is an empty theater that awaits the next show,
To showcase the truth I wish I didn't know.
My candle is low, and no longer burns bright, I will let the darkness embrace me and take away my sight.
If dawn comes and I live to love another day, maybe she'll come and chase the echoes away.
