Daily Grind


Tip-toe around, as not to step on the broken shards, shattered pieces of my soul, strewn across the floor.

Time stands still, only for a moment, then screams come, fluent panic in the dark.

I’ve forgotten how to breathe.

In one, two-three, hold – one, two- three, exhale.

There was a time the regiment was not a requirement for survival.

Now, it’s a necessity. Survival of the fittest or the mere being of existence.

Either way, it has to be the right kind of wrong to exist.

Engulfed by the daily grind of the same schedule.

Wake, coffee, a million thoughts, work, home.

Chew, swallow, repeat.

You’d think after all that you’d be full, but, no!

Empty, hollow and restless. The manual said nothing about this.

The daily grind; a round-about of monotony.

I want off this ride.

Welcome to the Rivers of Grue. My name is Richard Charles Stevens, Keeper of the Crimson Quill, and this is my immortal legacy. In honour of the fallen, from the deepest essence of an English gentleman with the heart of a lion, soul of a poet, and eyes for only truth. While the subject matters herein may be dark, there exists always a light source. Providing voice to the voiceless until I breathe my very last.
