Just Look Up

Chapter 0

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.

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

dapharoah69: I gotta hand it to you. This was a great read from start to finish. I am a big fan of witches, thanks to Anne Rice. The characters really reeled me in from the very first few chapters. You make reading fun.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

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. There isn't much more I can say about this other than amazing! Are there going to be anymore updates any time soon?I also Vote...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...
