About The Blog

Arthor Journer is my pen name.
"Arthor" comprises "art" + "Author" while "Journer" defines the journey that I was on and continue to travel.
In this blog is the emotional byproduct of this journey.

"Rites of Art" is the title because it is my "writes" of passage.

Pride Divides

Where do our emotions falter so weak and so frail?
Thirsty for the wine in this unspoken holy grail
Seeking the treasures lost in our vows of silence
Missing the signs and signals of our blind complacence
Why do our words cast so shallow from this shore?
Hungry for the fish that swim through our soul’s core
Wishing for the release from yesterday’s debt
Forsaking the paths and promises vowed to forget
How do our thoughts war against the breeze?
Desires brought to crawl on its wounded knees
Looking for the cool springs to feed our ground
Sealing our fate by not offering any sound
Who will raise the white flag and surrender their will
Pride a mountain that neither of us wishes to kill
Taking the seasons for granted the wounds for spite
Feeling the need to torture our emotion to crucify
