Loud

This isn’t going to be the final version of this poem. I thought of it in the shower. I don’t know where it came from, but I remember this moment very clearly. This poem is a true story, and I remember it being such a big moment for my mom. My brother has a severe…

Runs in the Family – Four-year Anniversary for Come and Go

Today is a special day for the blog. Today is the four-year anniversary for Come and Go. For those of you who recently discovered my blog, it wasn’t always called Come and Go.
