Life or Death
1 part / 0 pages
,
updated Sep 18, 2017

I wrote the poem “Life or Death”. I really wanted to stretch my skills and create a poem using only words from the Bible. Therefore, I was forbidden to use any modern words that may appear in the American language. I, as a writer, am not very ford of poems and would rather avoid them altogether when possible.  I really wanted to show the reality of the world around us in a poetic way that wasn’t in your face but instead, subtle, making the reader dig for the poem’s meaning. Even though there are plenty of words in the Bible this poem really helped me work on word choice more than anything. I had to change my wording over fifteen times to get the perfect phrases. The poem talks about the amount of blind people in the world trying to figure out their path in life and what to do when the final choice comes. It then urges them to take the right path and choose Life instead of the abyss (hell).

  I live to remember or very well forget? Our lips speak many languages. My mind felt a thousand kisses but my body holds time of sacredness out lives many special loves. My lips are in your photographs & my fingers urge to scratch I cannot forget you knowing how my mind works but a part of me forgets myself it’s like an enigma gosh no mouths to complete only sometimes regrets.       I love u:  ♥                                              She replies: there are so many different meanings of love  Can you challenge your heart with mine? Life is a challenge our mouth hold the warmth to eyes of our soul.    We will get our even exchange  Don’t worry about revenge? I have other things my lips may secretly whisper and blow your name how the hell did men survive when her power lips control all of them.      Do you feel her locket how she excites you swift smooth talker Sherlocked in his web a private eye for the perfect diamond: but not so perfect Dr, Dreamy how he designed her lip Or do we exchange ourselves for a thrust of desires.Dark stock exchange instead of diamonds all lips in the case  50 million shades darker than any lip sipping your coffee you never know when love can change? Your lips were waiting for someone's hand to take it out of that case how he thinks he is so cool with his cigarette smoking strawberry on my lips. I -phone did I hear a ring one last call before I die became a weapon one chosen fruit game of pursuit or did he switch to raw sugar tomorrow.Express myself through my lips they were bleeding how can I ever live through drill sergeant wicked world starting tomorrow.But things unarmored but poise such eloquently hands, His went off the wall bittersweet takes over.Shit happens it’s a cruel dark world.We have no clue or the next killer idea to deal with these lip monsters desperately seeking every color of the rainbows how they live inside us. We all have mouths to feed please god show me some mercy with some of them it was a macho image moral but she couldn't stop her physical reaction towards him.Each week he took all these desirable lips up in his dark tower.This psychic energy was strong reading someone's mind was the easy part. But feeling inside someone's lips he had to travel all around the world to seek and find the right ones with his knife on the side.The phone rang all lips went to attention.

The Night the Mountain Fell

This true story is not your average Boy Scout adventure.  It depicts the events of the unexpected Earthquake of 1959 and my Dad's Boy Scout Troop, who happened to be on their yearly campout just one mile from the epicenter.  This dramatic story is sure to keep you on your toes and tickle every traveler's wanderlust.  There are many things to see and experience at the actual site of Quake Lake, outside of West Yellowstone, Montana. Although the quake happened over 50 years ago, there are many landmarks left standing for people young and old to behold as they have a taste of not-so-well-known Montana history.

1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie and the Paradox of Land Claims
1 part / 28 pages
,
updated Oct 22, 2016

In the late 1800s the Euro-Americans were expanding West under the idea of Manifest Destiny. The notion of Manifest Destiny gave Euro-Americans the false assumption that as the superior race, Providence had blessed them with the territory and resources of North America and the indigenous peoples who were there mellinia before them be damned. After the Civil War, some of the Union soldiers were sent to the Great Plains to passisfy the Lakota Nation (Sioux) who were not easily passified. During the 1860s, Red Cloud's War made clear to the U.S. Cavalry that peace with the Lakota and other Great Plains tribes would be a less expensive alternative. Red Cloud's War was the decisive factor in proving to the U.S. Cavalry that they had no quarter with the Lakota Nation when it came to War. President Ulysses Grant sent his commissioners out over the next year to gather the various signatures of the prominent leaders of the Lakota Nation and Great Plains tribes to establish peace in what became known as the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty. Several famous prominent leaders such as Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse refused to sign the treaty, remembering how the U.S. had broken the 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty and treaties established with other American Indians. Shortly after being signed and ratified, Lt Colonel George A. Custer discovered gold in the Black Hills. Outlined in the treaty, trespass passing onto Lakota territory, which included the Black Hills, was a violation. Nevertheless, the Grant and several high-ranking members of the U.S. cavalry immediately set about stealing the Black Hills. In the process, the 1868 Treaty of Ft. Laramie Treaty was ripped apart, stomped on, and set afire, violated in the most audacious of ways. Years later, the Lakota Nation took the U.S. Government to court until the members were finally able to establish the Supreme Court to establish that the Black Hills  " was a taking" initiated on behalf of the United States government. The U.S. has awarded the Lakota Nation $350 million, the largest monetary amount ever awarded to an Indian Nation by the U.S. Court. Yet, the Lakota want no part of the deal and, currently, it rests in the Federal Treasury, accruing interest. Instead, all eight of the Lakota bands have insisted they want returned to them some of the federally owned land of the Black Hills, which the government retains thousands of acres, some financial recompense, and other items. This is not a tall order to ask and is quite do-able.

Nothing was ever normal in 17-year-old Rose's life. She swore things would be different this year, her senior year. No more alienation. No more bullying. No more living a life of a teenage outcast. Her hopes are soon dashed when things take a turn for the worse. What was supposed to be a normal day in math class becomes a nightmare filled with bloodshed. The electricity's out in the school. Cell phones won't work. And there's something that's tearing people to shreds, leaving minimum remains. Certain people are changing. Animals are evolving.
