The Revenant


“A revenant is a visible ghost or animated corpse that was believed to return from the grave to terrorize the living.”


There’s this movie trailer with Leonardo and Tom about their upcoming movie “The Revenant” and how it’s based on a true story.

It had me thinking about how each and everyone of us has a story to tell.

Because for all of us, life is happening at the same time.

And those life experiences are experienced on different levels.

How each of us have a pocket of life stories to tell to anyone willing to lend an ear.

With some parts of our lives are more intense that others.

And how us overcoming such extremes can make for a good movie that inspire others.

About how through the countless pounding our bodies, minds and souls can take…WE ARE STILL HERE!

You are your own inspiring, true life story movie.

Remember that.

You are deserving.

You are loved.

You are successful.

You are sexy.

You are important.

You are brave.

You are strong.

You are awesome.

You are unique.

You are powerful.

You are beautiful.

So rise from the grave of negative definitions you have buried your magnificence in, and terrorize the living with your brilliance!

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

Capped Births

The mechanics of life
Keep clocking away
Grinding away at the tip
Filling away until the point of no return
I look to the side
Time rings my neck
Full 360
Turns my world around
2 faced
Like a flip of a coin
And I find it funny
Laugh myself into a state
I look and it’s too late
And she’s late
She feels used
By my dick and the fetus
Like focus
The world is full of us
Wonder who used to kill the extra baby when China had capped births
Now you see me now you don’t
