To Replenish With Words
They are a new seed for me to plant. And like any farmer would tell you, you plant more seeds than will grow. Keep planting seeds, eventually you will get crops. But at the cost of time, of work, and discipline. Nothing of strength, of lasting taste, is ever created in the burning of one candle.
Much patience is equated to each growing moment for the seeds I plant. Hundreds, maybe even thousands will be planted before I see my words become something more. Become something other than a rain drop for my seeds. But rain for others seeds, words for others souls. A place where one can come rest their weary eyes and find themselves embedded into what pours from me, as much as I am enthralled in my words.
I don't write this is a pretentious thought, that my words carry more weight than others. But rather, that my words are consistent in planting, that I do not leave myself one day without them. And much of our lives, we are left without consistency, but to the consistency in the plain of the deary outdoors of lonely habits. Of punching the card for minuscule profit, or wasting moments in a once beautiful relationship, to only watch it fade away like wings to a clouded sky.
We are fallen angels to the weak will of our flesh. So many become inhaled by the reaping of the familiar, of the easy, and the mass. With each day slowly feeling their soul become no more than a stain upon their wall. And no matter how hard one tries to erase it, to cover it up, it remains.
It whispers for help, for comfort, for excitement. But is it not easier to leave it upon the wall like the blemish that it is? To let its pain nibble ever so lightly at ones heart? To let that missing piece be but a missing piece, to never fill the void, to fall hopefully to a numbing abyss? To become empty in the eyes, like that of the sky above cityscapes, is this not easier?
But never does this happen, never does the pain fade in the naive choice to neglect, to ignore. When one throws away their story, their love for life. There is no escape of the acute pain that salts each new wound. And this is why I write my stories, as not leave a sliver of me behind the walls of paint, nor to be forgotten upon the walls of my own home. I pray, that what I replenish in myself, will restore those around.
For we are all in need of giving and in need of faith in ourselves and something greater than our bones. We are all upon this world with great purpose, big or small. But too many stories are tossed, before they are even written, before, they are even read.

I have been writting poetry on medium, does anyone still wish me to write short stories on here?
A Wanderers Inn I have been traveling for thirty days. My horses are weak and I thirst dearly for water. My belly aches as hunger constricts my gut. I am fearful of death in such an unsuitable way. I have always seen myself dying in daring act of life. Be it in war or the saving of a child. Or maybe, even in the defeat of a dragon as I get one last blow with my blade before it strikes me down and it falls to its death beside me. Feeling its last breath of heat roll over my body as our eyes see only our fading souls. I have always thought my death would be glorious. Yet here I am, traveling alone with no more rations, nor water. My horses no longer walk with fervor but lackadaisical steps. And so I pray to find shelter before the cold takes us. Before the empty plains of barren trees and darkness finds us. I wish not to be detritus before my days. Decaying slowly to the maggots as my body lays helpless upon the earth. Becoming a gruesome vision of what lies inside. B
Not fair? You know what's not fair, that eight year old boy who who was diagnosed with cancer on his eighth birthday. The mom that has to watch her child slowly die as she prays he will survive; only to watch him take his last breath. After all those sleepless nights of pain staking chemo. All those days of watching their child go from a bundle of energy, to a pale boy of sickness. -- Life's not fair? You know what's no fair, going to work to find out you are being fired because someone holds a minority that you don't. Fired, because your skin complexion is not the right color and they need more of the other. Being fired, because the company needs more of a certain set of sex organs to help out "equality." -- Your life's not fair? You know what's not fair, those 200,000+ men who went to help eradicate the evils of Hitler. Only to die less than hundred feet onto the shore. All those sons taken from their families, all those father and mo
