VI, The Hunt

The hunt is on

I’m gone

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.

Excerpt from the book “Path To Serenity”

Path To Serenity 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.
