JD DeHart

JD DeHart is an English teacher who enjoys writing and publishing fiction, poetry, and nonfiction.  When he writes he tries to reflect on small, honest parts of his world.   He also attempts to capture pieces of life that are absurd and ironic. 

I think he succeeds.

Waqas Rabbani


Waqas Rabbani: "All our lives are in a constant state of flux, our emotions change from moment to moment, there is true joy and there is true sadness and both extremes exist within each of our souls, sadness is a part of being human, so is happiness yet getting addicted to any particular emotion or wanting to create circumstances for feeling emotions is wrong, let the universe sweep you along and experience existence in every moment, let your emotions flow as swiftly as the universe flows , and live your life to the fullest.."
