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.

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...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Cody Kluesner: When I first started reading I thought it would be good read and after the first few chapters I was hooked. One Mister Morgan Leger has a created a world with characters that draws you in. This is a story that will spark your imagination and pull on your heart. I promise that giving this a read w...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

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...

aeonleeann: Love how the story flowed through and how mysterious she was until the end. Loved how she tries to stay away from others but seamed to get drawn into others ether thru friendship, thru bargains or oaths. Would love to read the next book when it comes out. For this story in my eyes has great promi...

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

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.
