Life's a collision course and I'm a crash test dummy.
Brace for impact!
Join me on a kamikaze run through life as we break down the barriers that keep us from reaching our goals.
Together we will dream more, learn more, do more, and become more on a whirlwind journey of personal discovery and development.

It's Freak Flag Friday at The Realm!

Welcome to the Freak Show!

Amber Box
It's perfect for this Friday The 13th!

Welcome To The Realm, Amber!
Let your freak flag fly high! 




By: Amber Box

Fleeting glances of the scars
The smooth, sharp imperfections
A mirage, in the glass before you

Amorphic ghost of the unknown
Staring back at what it sees
Before it, behind you, inside

Holding hostage the visions you seek
Murky reflections of clarity, blurred
Matrix what you want to find

The shadowy shifts of a phantom
That only exists in the eyes of the seer
Of the one that stands before the mirror

Afraid of what you might see?
In the reflection of yourself,
In the mirror before you?

As you walk out the door
Does your reflection follow
Deep into the night?

Or does it remain, your ghost
Left to haunt the black
To stalk your emptiness?

The reflection is you
As you face yourself
 In the depths of your mirror
