We allow the trappings of what we have become. The haute couture wrappings of an upright kingdom. To infect how we think and how we see ourselves. Repressing all instinct, where nature sits and delves. This courtesy and tact we present to the world. Hides the genetic fact, an inner beast is curled. For even … Continue reading Wild Poetry: Wild Side (By Brad Osborne)

There's a light at the end of a tunnel, so far away, but growing nearer every day. Through the darkness, my light had been funnelled, drawn so far away, yet step by step, I make my way... I make my way towards the hope of something better, with eyes blind of no substitute for sunlight... … Continue reading The Dawn After The Night
