Broken Crown

I watched a teardrop hanging in the sky. Filled with emotion of the moment, it desperately fought not to die. I found myself wondering how long it could last. How long before it fell with a splash? The finality of that tear’s life dawned on me. Created with borrowed emotion just to be. How sad… Read More »


I grew up reading fantasy books. My mother had a rule that I had to read my summer reading before I could check out more fantasy books from the library, so I learned to speed read through those lists so I could get on to the real stories. Granted now I see the talent in… Read More »

Setting Sun

I came upon a setting sun as he was about to set. We talked a bit about what was as we had just met. He moaned about the rising moon and how he never sees her. I wept about a fallen son and a missing mother. We held hands as we stepped upon mountains in… Read More »

The Strangest Things Said to Me

“You boys don’t have any throwing stars or daggers on you do you?” “This cell phone sucks. You people should make them better.” “Sir could you show my son how to use chopsticks real quick?” I won’t tell you my response to this one, but needless to say I don’t work at PF Changs anymore…… Read More »

United We Stand

It is a hard thing to watch racial strife in a country you love. I grew up in the south as a Korean adoptee and I witnessed racism from all sides first hand. I’ve seen violence between all races and within all races. I’ve lived along cultural divides that separate whole cities and have seen… Read More »
