It’s my pleasure to share with you two published poetry pieces by Stephanie Annis.

March 25th, 2018 – Alone

Alone in the dark of night
No thoughts of a future in sight
Life is drab and thoroughly sad
So scared of the things daily life brings
No longer part of the grind
Feel like I’ve lost my mind
Darkness abounds
No friendly faces around
Wondering with fear
What criminals are lying near
Preparing weapons
Kitchen knives and Teflon
Thinking, a gun
I should have bought one
Wondering in my heart
Why this fear life imparts
Knowing its clear
This weirdness developed over years
As I struggled and fought
Learning control we have not
Though, we strive to present
This perception of strength


Oct. 31st, 2018 – Tides

The world is hard, cold, and dark.
The light fights with the night.

Sun, moon, and stars we see from afar.

The distance makes them small.
Sometimes, they look like they could fall.

Mystery is mystical.
Intriguing, uniquely full.

What is with this night?
I’m itching for a fight.

Maybe it’s just the tides.
They can create great divides.

Magic from the gods.
Secrets that make us odd.

Truth in all we see.
Truth in you and me.
