Head Strong

By Damien Knight

I can feel the ache in my bones
Pain of years gone by.
They said I wouldn’t make it on my own
Truth, they didn’t lie.
How can I stand on my feet
When I was given broke legs?
Taunt, call me weak!
I won’t cave, not a man who begs.
You can knock me down,
But you wont count me out!

I write poetry and share drafts of my novel when I am not in classes at the local university. My kids post their writing assignments from their books and papers on topics that interest them. My spouse travels for his job and most of our travel and food reviews are from him. We all are open to questions so ask away.

Today we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. While I could write about what he means to people today but his words stand on their own.

Wednesday Wisdom: Your Path

Wednesday Wisdom: Your Path

By Damien Knight

How often do you pray? Every day, once a week? What are you praying for? Perhaps you have a big test and you want to pass? Do you pray then? To who? God? Or maybe just to your cats? And when you don’t pass is it then their fault? After all you prayed right?

Wednesday Wisdom: Your Path

The truth is no one can save you better than yourself. I won’t touch religion exactly today if ever on this blog. I won’t tell you not to pray or believe in your god/s what I will tell you is you cannot rely on prayer or magic alone. You must forge your path.
The Secret often talks of the law of attraction. In essence, it is thinking things into existence. Prayer is like that but what is thought without action. You can pray that you pass a test but without study you will fail. That is why today’s Wednesday Wisdom is:
