4 mile run for Autism Awareness

4 mile run for Autism is completed. I finished 4 miles in 36 minutes. Ranked 12th out of 3034 runners in Men’s Division 30-34 and 238 out of 24,500 runners and 143 overall in all Men runners. Beat last years time by 9 minutes. Feeling sore obviously but it was for a great cause. Help raise awareness and educate on what Autism really is.

You decide which trend to follow


You are amazing, DNA is not your Bible, you don’t pray to the absentees, you become the presence. From my poem “Curriculum of Manhood” ‪#‎Hiddenlegacy‬ ‪#‎org‬ ‪#‎poetry‬ ‪#‎InSpireLegacy‬ ‪#‎discoverworthcollegetour‬ ‪#‎papapapa‬ ‪#‎readallaboutit‬

Abuse is Never Okay


Too many women think silence will protect them from further violence. Your voice is your protection. ‪#‎discoverworthcollegetour‬ ‪#‎hiddenlegacy‬ ‪#‎org‬ ‪#‎poetry‬ ‪#‎InSpireLegacy‬ ‪#‎abuseneverokay‬

“The performance was amazing, your poems really made me think of people’s lives around me and the different struggles that others face. The poems were emotional and really touched me. Some even gave me the chills which only happens when I hear something I really like. The show was an impacting experience” ~ Kaitlyn Chestna, Keene State University, New Hampshire

“The poem you did with guitarist on women and the issues they face with weight brought me to tears” ~Keene State University
