11 Things I Wish My Daughter To Know

By D. Sager, published on Dec 15, 2011

1) Hold your head high, you are beautiful, every day, all the time. When a man asks you to change your appearance to be acceptable to him, walk away and be yourself. Develop your character inside. Beauty is deeper than an outward appearance.

2) Respect yourself. In all you do and say, be a woman of class and honor. You will not get respect until you respect yourself.

3) Follow your dreams, never let a relationship, whether it be friendship, or love, rob you of what you dream.

4) Be independent, make sure of your own finances, health, and career. Always have... (more)

Leap of Faith

By D. Sager, published on Dec 14, 2011

“The foolish ask many questions the wise cannot answer” - Oscar Wilde

Questions are a sign of intelligence and creativity. They can, however, lead to an endless, tortuous circle of reasoning. Chasing answers can drive me to insanity. Why did that tragedy happen to me? Is God male or female? Will I know people after I die? These inquiries will only exhaust my mental and emotional energy, leaving me with no strength to push through the day at hand. Questioning my beliefs, my existence, my experience, is necessary, I must however, lay down my pursuits and find a place of peace to exist... (more)

Angel, Part 5

By D. Sager, published on Dec 14, 2011

The nights dragged on into months. We both learned the game, with a quickness necessitated out of survival rather than, as she supposed, fun and glamor. My angel's eyes lost their shine, being replaced with a distant look now shared with the rest of the dancers. She was fresh on the scene, and new girls make a lot of money the first few months of their initiation, their clients hoping to sway them with “generosity”. Other more unscrupulous men, professionals, hoping to secure her in their own businesses, would throw her lure after lure and line after line. Not knowing how to handle the growing... (more)

Fear

By D. Sager, published on Dec 13, 2011

Woke me up, your thoughts to see

nothing true, nothing real

only fear

I think what you think of me

nothing true, nothing real,

only fear

I look around, your opinions to see

nothing true, nothing real

only fear

It keeps my mind from seeing me

nothing true, nothing real

only fear

I look behind, its you I see

nothing true, nothing real

only fear

Thoughts can no longer hold me

I can make them true, I can make them real

no fear.

The Queen, Part 7

By D. Sager, published on Dec 10, 2011

Quickly we walked through the busy street. Transients stopped their mumbling and searching to see the passing of my queen, looking at her with what seemed like familiarity. I love the attention she brings, it makes me feel, important, necessary. Pressing our way into an ornate doorway, I found us in the company of a hardened contemptuous fellow, on his neck, a bold tattoo advertising his contempt for the law. He was tall, hair black and slick, a malevolent stare carved into his face that spoke things words could never say. I thought of the fight the night before, hoping I could avoid another... (more)

Reckless

By D. Sager, published on Dec 9, 2011

Reckless,

breaking through the glass of life's treasure, you shatter the trinkets with careless power

Reckless,

you trash the dwelling of those in need, sending all askew, your feelings are sour

Reckless,

you amble forward with no concern, laying yourself down by the hour

Reckless,

seeking only to feel what you lost, in the wreckage you cower

Love In Hiding

By D. Sager, published on Dec 9, 2011

Why is it that love is so evasive? It hides behind impossibilities. Dancing around dashed hopes and crushed dreams, it laughs, seemingly immune. Attempts to force its hand are met with indifference. It scoffs at the futility of such manipulations. It can appear dead, then, resurrect itself in spite of all resistance and logic. Contrary to reason, it brings to madness the mind of the genius. Delighting in the bafflement of its adversaries, it raises strong arms to show defiance of prediction. Having disarmed reason and logic it takes the journey into sweet insanity, a wandering exploration... (more)

11 Things I Wish My Son To Know

By D. Sager, published on Dec 8, 2011

1) Your mind is brilliant with ideas and thoughts, you must use this to create and bring life or it will destroy you. You have no other options, your gift will not let you rest.

2) Women come and go. You will carry them with you after your apart. Be wary then of whom you attach yourself to.

3) Don't let other people's problems become yours.

4) Making love is different from having sex. Feeling your soul meld with another is unlike anything on earth. Give your soul with caution, it can't be taken back.

5) Save money. If you don’t you will always be at someone's... (more)

Angel, Part 4

By D. Sager, published on Dec 7, 2011

We drove through the country, past dense forests of deep green and fields of tobacco, all pasted against the bluest sky I ever saw, a backdrop to the drama about to unfold. The club was lackluster, mud stains crawling up the faded white siding, weeds growing in sparse clumps in the dirt and gravel parking lot. The tires crunched through the gravel, announcing our presence to those waiting inside. We walked in, the dark welcoming us to the wantonness concealed from the day. She interviewed quick, verbally. I knew what they wanted to see for her qualifications. Posturing up like a good sentry,... (more)

The Music

By D. Sager, published on Dec 7, 2011

I turned the music on today.

I let the pain work its way out and through

my heart to my eyes,

welling up with watery release

I turned the music on today.

I let the tears come rolling on in and down

my face to my lips,

tasting my salty sorrow.

I turned the music on today.

I let myself go and felt all of it

rolling around and across

my life in this room.

I turned the music on today...
