Some Things Never Change

They say to let bygones be bygones. Forgive those who have trespassed against you.  Well, that’s easier said than done.   Growing up was tough. My friends and I tried to keep out of trouble and not have any run-ins with the cops.  As a Mexican kid, it was hard living in a society which treated …

Kalisa on Campus

At first, he thought that his mind and eyes were playing tricks on him. Missing Kalisa and longing to be with her were finally taking a toll on him to the point where he thought he saw her a few moments ago. I'm losing my mind, he mused. As much as I wish she were …
