Arguing With Fate

A conversation with Providence

It’s a fine line to sounding crazy if I exaggerate my life.
Fuck, maybe I am. Exaggerating or crazy — maybe both.
Some days I wish to tell Providence that enough is enough,
but she knows I can bear more, and there is some hilarity to it.




Poetry has the ability to awaken the deepest parts of our soul. Demanding we look beyond the surface of living. It comes in quietly and discretely leads us to profoundly deeper understandings of our experiences. If only you are willing to listen.
