So, the emails from the publisher are below.
I honestly wasn’t expecting such a strong reaction in favor of my pieces.
I had originally figured a chapbook would be about it but the company wants a full length book.
Work has been accepted and idk I’m somewhat surprised by the strong reaction.
Phase two in the writing journey.
Possibly a full length book to come!
Seeing this journey back began on a rock. The picture below is a route i had worked on for months, destroyed me and built me up again!
A word contradicted by actions is truths great thief.
Many will speak
Few will see
None shall hear
the creation of false realities.
Many will hand you words laced with addictions
luring you in,
blinded by words dripping of emotions,
still you sit amongst actions barring witness to empty ramblings.
Personal thoughts from my writings..
I’ve seen so many memes,
quotes and status that say, “life is to short to hold onto bitterness, grudges, hurts and angers.”
True but these are real created emotions and ignoring them will serve no purpose, ignored emotions will only cause them to resurface later.
Let’s take another look at this meme.
Life is not only to short to serve such emotions.
Life is not only to short to ignore these emotions,
life is to short to create these emotions in someone else’s life.
Life is to short for someone to serve emotions, such as self pleasure that creates
in someone’s life,
reactions that are nothing more then how someone was made to feel.
As a humanity we need to learn how to better care for one another, treat one another, creating a different reflection/reaction of self.
Ex – if I create anger in someone’s life, that anger is nothing more then a reflection of how I treated or cared for someone. That anger is a reflection of me not of themselves.
As a humanity we can do better, we can create better.
We may not all agree but we can all find a middle ground to work from.

The games of the powerful know no bounds.
To use genuine injustices through exploitation, tugging on the emotional strings of a people is a disgrace to all who suffer at the hands of the powerful.
The powerful = those who claim to speak on the people’s behalf.

Had a conversation with a patient that is worth sharing.
Patient is on the younger side.
Me: how are you? I need to take your vitals.
Patient: okay. I’m just miserable. This is my life now, this is what I’ve become.
The patient continued to explain what happened but the last part of what she said stuck with me.
“You never really realize how much you haven’t lived until you can’t anymore.
There’s so much i had wanted to experience, people I had wanted to reconnect with, places and things I wanted to do but you know, tomorrow. I’ll make that call tomorrow. I’ll do that thing tomorrow. I’ll experience this thing I’ve been wanting to tomorrow. Well look, I’m in my tomorrow now and most of what I’m doing now is wondering why I waited, the regrets. I never really realized I wasn’t living until tomorrow came and showed me.”
We continued to talk but what she said really stuck with me. All the memes that say “it’s never to late to begin.” Sometimes it is, sometimes tomorrow comes and just grabs your step and stops you. Sometimes the way we are living isn’t really living, sometimes all this stuff we are doing is nothing more then a distraction to life and we get comfortable existing.
So what is it, what do you wanna experience, touch, feel, see and just do to wake it all up inside?
From my notes and personal journey..
What is it about holding onto emotions that no longer serve you.
Holding an emotion to try and prove a point, or to be validated by the giver of the wound(the one you are bonded to)will do nothing more then keep your pain process cycling over and over, without healing.
Letting go of those emotions will release them back to the giver and they will reap to whatever degree they do.
The best way to release these wounds/scars left by another is to deal with each and every one of them, some of what you learn about self will surprise.
Holding an emotion in will do nothing more then bury itself within the soil of your being to bare fruits later in life. Dealing with your emotions will free you from becoming their servant later in life and projecting that onto another.
Humanity clothed themselves in unusual garments and burdened their faces with masks,
hiding the strange gods of the earth.
They were given a different tongue,
prayers broken by words of no use.
Weighed down by sins committed of flesh and bone,
covering the devil in Gods cloth
blinded by the blessings of evil.
