Biography of Madison Riffle
I was born at the Langley Air Force Base in Langley, Virginia while my father was in the U.S. Navy. He soon finished his service and we moved near family in West Virginia before I was a year old. I have lived in West Virginia ever since and am currently a student at Alderson Broaddus University with intentions to go to Seminary after graduation.
I write in my free time, but only on such occasions that I feel inspiration. I have been told I have potential and am trying to live up to that.
I also enjoy playing my guitar, snuggling up with a good book, baking, and hanging out with friends.

To A Samaritan I Owe My Life
On my way to Jericho, I was robbed and left for dead. Why did I leave Jerusalem, the comfort of my bed? As I lay there in pain and blood, I could not understand. Wouldn't anybody help me? Take my weakened hand?
See me here, sitting on my own Join me quietly so I'm not alone Wrap your arms around me Make me feel at home
Silence, cold and dead That's all I heard from you No matter how many times I tried I couldn't get you to speak

Whistling wind comes in waves
During the dreary dregs of an overcast day
As a professor softly speaks of poetry.
Words weave around the silence
Creating a studious stupor among us,
Effectively enforcing the importance of his lecture.
Discussion directly ensues,
Promoting a bubbly babble of participation -
Students hoping to earn favor or facination.
