Perfect Palace

Man is the great paradox. He walks around an enormous palace, with gold and silver laying about, diamonds and jewels of all types. He paces back and forth, to and fro, wondering what to do. He looks up and screams to the heavens, “What will I do?” “Life is so hard, I have nothing!” He…

An Ancient Song

…his crown was broken…the crown’s gem stone, a ruby, fell to the Earth, like a giant meteor. This massive jewel brought fire and light to mankind.

He to plummeted to earth and his legend was forever in the mind of men.

Chained for ages and now freed.

Is he the villain or the hero?

The Promise

Sometime during the year 2004… Jeffrey, Age 16: What’s it all for, anyway? I mean, I know why they do it but I know they hate it. Alexander, Age 17: I could never do that….get up every day and do the same things over and over again. They don’t even like it, the only reason…

prometheans

…and in those days, there were those, who thought themselves mightier than the Whole. This small group wanted nothing more than to keep humanity at war with itself, stripping everyone of their ability to empathize, reason and love. The arrogant ones never anticipated a few stray sparks would light up the entire globe! It was as though Prometheus…

the beat

Ah, the human heart is truly something when properly aligned… I have seen gold melt before it and money cast aside because of it. The heart like the eyes, can see and will give guidance based on that which is highest and that which is best. It can properly guide the mind and reach up…

Dead of Night

….in those days the earth had become dark, the sun was nearly invisible and at night there was no moon, no stars, only the darkness. There was a perpetual cold, that always stayed with the people, they could never seem to warm themselves. The thoughts, feelings and deeds that had dominated the peoples of previous…

underground king

The door to the underground, it was always there, right in plain sight. Why had I never seen it before? Perhaps I am not who I was before. The path within is treacherous, nothing is as it seems. Winding, winding, winding stairs going further and further below. A kaleidoscope of emotions assail me as I…

god’s throne room

I wanted to see god’s throne room, to meet and see the god I have heard “holy” men speak of. Many told me I could not see god until after I passed from this existence. I knew this could not be so. I went within and acquired the ability to go without. I cultivated virtues.…

The Cell

I had been trapped in the same cell for….26….no 27 years… who knows? I don’t. A small, damp cell. Fungus growing on the old stonewalls; it was always musty and hard to breathe. A few blankets made for my bed. Company? You ask of company? Well yes, I had company from time to time, if…

The Raven’s Words

A large buck was with his family in his final moments. In his prime he was tall and had a regal appearance. His mighty antlers seemed to reach up and touch the heavens. He was a fearless leader and protector of his kind. So mighty was he that many a ferocious predator limped away woefully…
