Just Look Up

Where do we look to when the sky’s all blue?

Where in our hearts the thunder looms...


Sometimes it feels like you’ve been forsaken; 

perhaps unceremoniously left behind.


Most of the time you’ve lost all the reasons

logical to your brilliant mind,

What was once celebrated now remains

desuetude, uninhabited,

But, not dilapidated nor decrepit.


Knowing not of your situation, not understanding,

all I offer is sympathy and one fine ear.

Oh, Autumn babe, belong not to the Winter for

here lay a warm breast that is due you.


One day you might stumble upon a reason 

that lightens your trudge forth.

but like human is err bound, fail you it might - 

Will you be beaten down on your trial of faith?


The trick here lies within the testament of strength,

not labor, but at heart, oh the frail heart.

If you are willing, you will be rewarded,

If you look up, with your mind's keen eye. 


Rediscovering yourself may seem a herculean task;

a labyrinth, even, 

but Elysium lies ahead, a Gordian knot bereft.

It takes time, surely, never, never, an impossibility.

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

The writer did such a great job making me car...

Alex Reltin: The way you build the world around the characters is amazing, and the way you get into the character's mind and make us feel for the characters through the entire story.

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...
