Harper Lee and the sequel!

After more than 50 years, Harper Lee is releasing her second book! Go Set a Watchmen, the sequel to her first bestseller To Kill a Mockingbird, is to be released this July.
I remember reading TKAM for the first time in my 9th grade English class. It completely changed my attitude towards school, reading and writing! It opened my eyes to a world of fantastic literature and, since that class, I have come back to that book numerous times. I am overjoyed that Lee is coming out with a sequel.
Naturally, I have already preordered the book from Barnes and Noble. I just want to ask: who else is excited? And tell me when you first read To Kill a Mockingbird?

It’s official…

Well loves, it’s official: Miles To Be Clean has been completed and sent off to the poetry contest! This marks the spot for a long journey ahead and I could not be happier. Push your fear and hesitation aside, guys… go for it!

Throwing Rocks

Throwing rocks into the water,
As I stand along the bank.
Hurling one after another,
Til I saw they had not sank.

I stood there and I pondered,
Why that this would be.
For why would rocks that I have thrown,
Stay atop the sea?

I searched around for one more stone,
The biggest of them all.
One that’s size and weight alone
Could make the rest of them fall.

Stopping in my tracks,
I gazed at the sheet of steel.
I could not describe what it was,
Or the way it made me feel.

But staring at each failed attempt,
I saw each one so clear.
And as I came to accept them all,
They began to disappear.
