<p>HI, I AM INDIGOSTAR!&nbsp; I LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN ONLY MINUTES FROM THE FRENCH QUARTER IN NEW ORLEANS. I AM A BARTENDER, WHICH I LOVE, BECAUSE I GET TO MEET AND SPEAK WITH SO MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE. I AM ALSO A POET/SONGWRITER. I THINK OF MY WRITING AS THE OUTER EXPRESSION OF MY INNER SELF. I'D LOVE TO BE AN ARTIST BUT I CAN'T DRAW OR PAINT VERY WELL, SO, THERE GOES THAT. I LOVE NATURE AND AM AT MY BEST OUTDOORS. I AM NOT RELIGIOUS, BUT I AM HIGHLY SPIRITUAL! I LOVE TO MEDITATE AND DO SO DAILY. I LOVE TO READ AND AM INVOLVED IN METAPHYSICAL STUDIES. I HAVE VERY RECENTLY DISCOVERED MY TRUE PATH IN LIFE AND I AM ARDENTLY PURSUING IT. I LOVE CHILDREN AND ANIMALS AND I LOVE TO LOOK AT THE WORLD THROUGH THEIR EYES!&nbsp; IT IS A WORLD OF PURE AND TRUE INNOCENCE THAT I FEEL, WE, AS ADULTS, COULD LEARN FROM. I LOST EVERYTHING I HAD EVER OWNED AND MOSTLY EVERYONE I HAD EVER KNOWN IN HURRICANE KATRINA. AFTER SEVERAL YEARS, AND A SEVERE BOUT WITH POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER, I HAVE FINALLY COME TO SEE HER LESSONS. PAINFUL?, YES, EXCRUCIATIONG!&nbsp; BUT IT IS TRUE, WISDOM IS BORN OF PAIN. I NO LONGER TAKE ANYTHING OR ANYONE FOR GRANTED. I LIVE EACH DAY AS IF IT WERE MY LAST. I WILL NEVER AGAIN WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW TO DO OR TO SAY WHAT I CAN DO OR WHAT I CAN SAY TODAY, BECAUSE I KNOW, ALL TOO WELL, THAT TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME!&nbsp; ALSO, I KNOW, FIRST HAND, THAT WHEN ALL IS TAKEN FROM YOU, WHEN YOU'RE STANDING THERE ALL ALONE, ALL YOUR &quot;STUFF&quot; IS GONE, YOUR HOME, YOUR JOB, YOUR CAR, YOUR TOWN, YOUR FRIENDS AND YOUR FAMILY, WHEN ALL YOU HAVE LEFT IS THE SUNDRESS AND SANDALS YOU'RE WEARING, AND EVEN HOPE AND SANITY ARE NONEXISTENT, &quot;HE&quot; SHOWS UP AND AS HE PROMISED,&quot; YOU WILL NEVER WALK ALONE!&quot; LIKE THE PHOENIX, I TOO AROSE FROM THE ASHES, WELL, IN MY CASE, FROM THE FLOODS OF KATRINA! AND I AM PROUD TO SAY, &quot;I'M STILL STANDING&quot;! PEACE!</p>

I feel the need to write Tho I haven’t a clue as to what! I just feel the need tonight To set free my every thought. There is so much...

Now

I am reaching for heights unknown, As I leave no stone unturned. I am treading a path unpaved, With hope that I survive unscathed. The obstacles...
High above our shattered town, On angels wings you fly around. Watching over those of us, Left to rebuild our shattered lives. I’m sorry...
