Some of the words I have written here will hurt those who matter: and for that, I am sorry.
But I cannot lie about what I feel when I write for myself.
These words record a part of my self that I wish to remember. And so I continue to write: in the hope that in time, my words will bring me to that point where everything is forgiven.
– mightwar: Seeking Forgiveness
Hello, and welcome to MightWar – the online musical.
I cannot say when I first started writing to record my thoughts and experiences. But outside of messages and gifts, my writing was done for my sole pleasure and fill a number of notebooks that I return to from time to time.
This site is an experiment to find out what other people think about my writing and a direct result of my brother-from-another-mother telling me to “share” my words.
mightwar.com is a Poetry, Creative Writing and Photography blog. With topics ranging from travel to people to illness, mightwar.com puts pen to page to web. And so the word dances on…
About: A little bit about me for your reading pleasure – and proof that I am in fact a living, breathing person and not just a figment of my own imagination.
