Reflection by T. Edward Redd

I know a man who’s losing,

The light in his eyes.

His heart is bruising.

Pain eats away at his soul like flies.

Those dying eyes.

How they remind me of mine.

So long ago I tried, freeing my soul from dark cries.

But was saved by the great divine.

I was rejected by death.

I discarded my own life.

Yet was given one last breath.

Now I live with great strive.

How can I save his soul?

It’s like I’ve been sent back in time.

Placed here to console.

Stop him from listening, to familiar dark chimes.

I’m lost for action.

Though I avoided my self-inflicted demise.

It was only by a fraction.

Not my doing. But a gift from the skies.

Please don’t let go.

Though times are dark.

You must search for your inner glow.

Look in your heart and let light spark.

First Post of the Year! Many Things to Come this Year!

Hello, followers and bloggers, writers and, of course, readers. I know that I’ve been gone for some time now. But like I’ve written in the past, writing is my dream. I don’t plan to stop. In fact, this year I plan to take my writing very serious and reach new levels of success.

Since I last made a post, I have done many things and have made many goals. I’ve written another book, I’ve had a signing, I’ve met writers and I’ve traveled across the globe to England. My trip has brought me many things.

Traveling overseas alone for my first time traveling out of the country has brought me a strong sense of independence and determination. I feel that there is nothing I can’t do as long as I work hard and stay persistent. My experience over this past year has proven to me what I’m truly capable of and what plateaus I can reach by using my strengths.
This year I am determined to gather many more feats for myself as a young and independent author.

Create My Own Comic Book.

My first goal is to create my very own comic book before the year of 2016 and participate in the Indy Comicon of 2016. I went to the convention last year and it was amazing. To say I participated in something like that and showcase my own work would be amazing.

Reach 1,000 Followers.

I want my blog and networks to be able to reach mass numbers. By doing this more and more people will see my progress and work. I will gain supporters as well as inspire more writers to pursue their goals. I truly believe anyone can do this if they work hard enough. I want to be hope to everyone who dreams the way I do. I want to inspire people to become dream catchers. I want to encourage them to never give up. No mater what. So I will definitely be blogging a lot more this year.

Complete 1-5 Drafts of Stories

I don’t want to become a slacker when it comes to writing stories. I’m not positive if I will be releasing one or two books this year. I’m definitely releasing one. Regardless I want to keep completing drafts and sharpen my writing skills.
Laugh More. Play More. Relax More.

I realize I stress a lot about things and I’m serious a lot. This year I want to be more laid-back and carefree. I want to have more fun and worry less. I want to just go for things without worrying about what happens afterwards.

That’s pretty much it as far as my goals go. I am back on my blog and I plan to make a lot of things happen this year! I will post more very soon.
