An interest in creative writing and poetry influenced my passion for writing.

A poem I once wrote about the abstract nature of knowledge and partial truth in an inverted world with regards to religion, social issues, media, environment, politics, patriotism, gun violence, death, and warfare.

Toothless Religion of Convenience


I am the truth, I am convenience,

I only speak the message that needs to be heard,

I am the truth, I am convenience,

The only truth I know is in my words,

I am the truth, I am convenience,

I demand you respect my truth and my words

I am the truth, I am convenience,

I will only speak the truth when it is convenient,

Conversation with a Bullet


I will not agree with your words, I will agree with your silence,

If you speak to me, I will respond with violence,

I have something to say, I demand your silence,

If you dare to speak, I will respond with violence,

I am a bullet, I demand silence,

I am quick to speak, I speak violence,

Death and the Call of Duty


I am the instrument of death, but do not fear me,

I look like death, but death does not define me,

I am the instrument of death, but do not fear me,

When death comes, you will hide behind me,

I am the instrument of death, but do not fear me,

I know I have brought death, please do not remind me,

I Fight for my Country, I Fight against your Country


I am a hero, I come home,

I burnt villages, I burnt houses,

Now I come home,

I fight for justice, I fight for peace,

Now you have a home,

I am a hero,

I come to fight for my home,

I will burn your village, I will burn your house,

Now I will go home,

I fight for justice, I fight for peace,

Now you have no home,

I am a Deaf Protester


I will not be silenced,

I have something to say,

My message is important, my message is true,

I have something to say,

I will not listen, I will not stop,

I have something to say,

Your message is important, your message is true,

I have something to say,

I will not listen, I will not stop,

I have something to say,

I am Your Puppet Master


I have lived among you,

Now I have become your voice,

I do not demand your devotion,

It is up to you, it is your choice,

I will speak for you, I am your voice,

The deeds are yours, it is your choice,

I own your thoughts, I own your voice,

I influence your deeds, but it is your choice,

I am Fear, I am Hypocrisy


I do not choose for you,

The choices are your own,

I stroke fear, but the fear you feel is your own,

I do not choose for you,

Your actions are you own,

If you act on my words, the guilt you feel is your own,

I do not choose for you,

Your decisions are your own,

If I influence your decision, the consequences are your own,

I am a Wolf In Sheep Clothing


I am the wooden handle of an ax,

I am one of you,

I have come home, please accept me,

I am one of you,

I will cut you down and you will not scream,

I am one of you,

I will burn down your house, you will not run,

I am one of you,

You have no home, do not despair,

I am one of you,

I am the News, I Welcome you to my Reality


Please do not trust your senses,

I am reality,

Please let me show you what to see,

I am reality,

Please let me tell you what to hear,

I am reality,

Walk with me in my world,

I have become your reality,
