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)

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

You can create a space of creativity!

By Tony Samara, published on Dec 8, 2011

“One major human trait is the focus on negativity. It is interesting how that negativity – whether it be emotional, physical, mental or energetic – draws us unto itself, into the energy or circle that I call karma and into the karma of that moment. How difficult it is to find a space free from that so that we can transcend and move beyond to a space where rather than contracting into this space, which sucks the energy of our creativity and of our sense of well being, we open to a space where the opposite happens. A space where we can expand and laugh in joy, in happiness or in expansion that... (more)

The Light Within Is All The Same

By Joey Flowers, published on Dec 8, 2011

Not being a scholar of psychology, or knowing much about human behavior, or even really a writer for that matter, all I can go by is what I observe in this oh-so-crazy-world of ours. Actually, I'm just your average thirty-something year old that just tries to live his life, just like you do. But often times I do wonder what makes us tick.We all experience things in our lifetimes, both good, and bad. For me, the story is kind of long, but to make that long story short, I lost everything. My home, my wife, my kids, everything. It all started going downhill I would say around the spring time.... (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...

Angel, The Beginning

By D. Sager, published on Dec 4, 2011

The face of an angel. Papa always told me to beware of the woman who had the face of an angel. I'm not referring to natural beauty, but the innocent purity and helpless look that compels men to protect her, regardless of their logic. That's how it was with her, an angel. I should have known better, my guard was down, my heart was broken, my mind was confused, all from going through hell on earth known as divorce. I managed to find my solace, like so many others, at the local brewery, throwing down drink after drink in an attempt to drown myself or lose myself. I was at a low that only happens... (more)

Queen, Part 6

By D. Sager, published on Dec 3, 2011

I woke from my sated slumber, a smile on my face. Turning to my queen, I see the same smile reflected in her eyes, barely open from her repose. As I looked at her, my mind replayed images of the night before, the sounds, amazing sights, and most of all, a feeling of being, different. Her words controlled many, soft yet powerful whips that always brought about her will, even when you thought it was your own. Now, it was more than her words. Her body brought a whole new element to my journey, creating a hunger, a thirst, both working together, driving me to feel her touch. Shaking myself from... (more)

It's A Long Way Back

By D. Sager, published on Dec 2, 2011

Its a long way back from the edges of life. I knew when I followed that path, way out to the edge of my experience, my emotions raw and excited with newness of knowledge and feeling, that the price for this wonder may be, the journey back. Its so beautiful on the way out to that edge. My soul so easily amazed by pleasures which offer no sure guidance, pleasures which deceive with their passion. This excitement is the elixir of madness offered by my wayward senses to lure me beyond the wise and sure. Looking at my experiences, I recognize the most painful ones are the ones that had extreme... (more)

The Queen, Part 5

By D. Sager, published on Dec 1, 2011

Urgently she grabbed my hand, I was still in shock at having handled myself so competently. She knew what she could make men do, her little mischievous smile told me that she was well aware of her skill. Taking me to a door, barely recognizable from years of graffiti sprayed on it, blending it in with the dark sticky walls of the alley, she pushed it open with a nudge and we entered another world alien from that of the putrid alley, but still as foreboding, mysterious. The lights were dim, but gave an ambiance that said, pleasure. She turned, letting her jacket slide off slowly, showing... (more)
