VI, The Hunt
The hunt is on
Won’t be long, until
I’m singing my song
The beast is out there
Somewhere, over there
Maybe here, my flesh
He wants to tear
I have my bow at the ready; I’m steady, get ready. He is coming full speed but his movements I read and my arrow shall fly full speed. It would pierce his heart if he had a heart so instead, I aim for his head and he will be dead. This is a hunt, I’ll be blunt, up front, the door I’ll shut and end this hunt. He shall feel the fear, I’m not a dear, pierce him with a spear because I do care. For my life, this is one big hunt and I will stay up front. He treads the line, I’m on the front line. Shall I be the hunter or the hunted? I need to choose fast before it’s too late and I meet my fate.

About the Author
Writing came about for me, in my life, when I was 16 years of age. Before that however, more to my story is needed. My mother left my father when I was 3. Most children develop an emotional attachment to the mother, but I was the opposite. I became a destructive child as a result. When I was 9, my mother decided to take me to Oregon from Washington but it didn’t end there. After a year she took me to Kansas, away from family and my father. To be brief with this portion of my story, I went from destructive to complete and utter depression and despair.
For whatever reason, I picked up a pen and wrote on a blank sheet of paper. I didn’t write diligently but I did ever so often, I just wanted to know who this God is. My mind was still fractured and damaged from the road bestowed upon me and when I was 18, I dropped out of high school for my misery and depression was too great for me to handle school. My life thereafter was not joyous or happy. I continued down a lonely road with no friends or anyone to truly call family. My pain and sorrow was great indeed. I turned to the pen and wrote what I could see as my heart coming together. I recorded my life through poetry and it was my therapy. The feeling of healing was within what I wrote and I found purpose. Thus, God and poetry has been my journey, a road to complete serenity for all eternity.
