My Eyes Of Wonder

My eyes of wonder

Clouded and disillusioned

Empty promises

50 Word Story: Human Face of Immigration

Juan’s tears evaporate before they can run down his burned and blistered cheeks. Face down in the sand he see a vision of his wife and three small children.  

What started out as a journey to freedom and a better life is now about to leave him for the vultures.

Shadowy Creatures

Shadowy creatures

Thrive in absolute darkness,

What is it they seek?

Are they feasting on my fears

Or do they desire blood?

 

Real or imagined

They torture me just the same.

This…my illusion

Has become reality,

Whether I like it or not.

 

The mind truly can

Be such a terrible thing…

Praying for triple sevens

The house always wins
