I painted love with an ugly brush,I had dreams my nightmares wouldn’t let me touch. I listened but heard they had nothing to say, today felt like yesterday?Told my dad I’d see him Monday not knowing he’d die that sunday?My hesitation to engage in conversations,Silent when they needed a word,I Thought i had no reason to be heard.My whole life i spent preparing for death,I’m everything they regret,I sleep but still haven’t slept?I hope my memory makes you smile,This close to you like a ghost but can’t touch reality.They died realizing life was just a fantasy,An despite my upbringing God never abandoned me!I Left hell on the devils chair, I was always in His will even when i failed to be there.I was blinded on purpose, Sacrificed not murdered,Humble because i know i didn’t deserve it.How many ask God to speak then wish they never heard Him?
Emotionally hopeless my fate had no faith to maintain, I put the gun in my mouth an told it to say my name!Sadness dressed in a smile i was a crossdresser, hurt by what i saw i think I’ll look lesser?Because i caused them pain, i know in the presence of God they’ve mentioned my name?Lord take your blood from his veins,Make him wander outside of his promise land,May joy never take his hands!I except the bitterness of this man,Even though we blame God most of our decisions had nothing to do with His plan!Are you a believer or just a fan?Do we really know Jesus or just trying to get in by using His name?God told me the devil had his shot but he missed it,Now my destiny is on his revenge list.He said my gift is to speak but my curse is to keep silent?Why does peace know violence?Death by a thousand griefs, he’s not dead he’s sleep!Life is the only game that the rewards you can’t keep?

This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more. Subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates.
This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.
You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.
Why do this?
- Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
- Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.
The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.
To help you get started, here are a few questions:
- Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
- What topics do you think you’ll write about?
- Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
- If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?
You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.
Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.
When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
