Depression Consumes the Mind.


depression consumes the mind.

intertwined in lies i speak to others,

i’m fine, and you?

don’t look into their eyes,

or they’ll spot the lie.


i tell the truth.

i play the fool.

who are you?

enemy, end of me, and im mean.

who am me?

gain composure, you freak.

i fantasize of being free.

smile, do not murder, and repeat.

fix that body posture.

shoulders back, chin up, spine straight.

societies full body masquerade.

such an imposter.

such a disgrace.

i hate.

MISSION STATEMENT I am always looking for my next creative project be it a new song, a new video, a review, a technical achievement, or sharing tips on resilience. I believe in building character and love to share the knowledge i've built through my experience to those who wish to listen. In the end it's not about me, but what you can achieve through me. WHO I AM I am a man who enjoys a cup of coffee ☕️ with cream/milk and sugar every morning. I served in the Marine Corps for four years and did one combat tour during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) 🇺🇸. I'm a nerd/geek and proud of it. I play video games, create content on YouTube, write a journal, and am working on a music album. My favorite color is purple which makes sense, because I am free spirit who enjoys helping others . This is an outlet to record my thoughts, share my experiences, and collaborate 🤝. Please feel free to browse around, comment, click on links, or just say hi.
