Giving Up

Have you ever lived a life,

Where just about everything goes wrong?

And you know that nothing can set it right.

Just because you love his soul,

Doesn’t mean he knows your plight.

You can’t always lose,

But you won’t ever win,

When you lose your mind,

And say “that’s the end”.

Giving up for a good reason is true,

But giving up for a bad reason is wrong.

There won’t always be a fight,

When you know things aren’t right.

I know you want to tell him,

But that’s not always the way.

If you follow your heart, you will see,

That giving up is hard,

But then you’ll be free.

I am a fantasy/sci-fi/smut writer, my first book "Love and Pain in Zion" is available on Amazon. I am also scribing for Medea, the Sorceress of Colchis on the blog Legends of the Veil (, and Amphitrite on In the Pantheon ( My husband and I are planning on opening up a New Age/Metaphysical store, where I am running the storefront and he is running the services in the back. Since he is already a licensed interfaith minister and can perform weddings in Ontario, and a Reiki master, we can start offering services soon. I am enrolled in Witch School International as a seminary school of the Correllian Nativist Tradition. I have mostly completed my First Degree clergy status, and am almost finished my Second Degree. Brian and I run a local temple (Temple of the Night) which is a part of the Correllian Nativist Tradition. We are currently the only temple with full temple status in Canada.
