Biography of Michael Stevens
I was born and raised in Bloomington, IN. Growing up, I was an introvert. My teachers taught me that it was important to express myself and gave me a book to write my thoughts down. Eventually I came to writing rhymes and verses and for some reason people supported me in the endeavor. After highschool I joined the Marine Corps where I served for a term of five years. It was a difficult and stressful period of my life that I would gladly repeat many times over. During my time in-service, my writing became dark and at a point stopped. Now that I am a civilian once again, I feel that it is a good time to begin my writing again.
It is my belief that everyone has beautiful words hidden inside of them if only they took the time to understand themselves to find them.

A Long Road
A long road, I have traveled and still longer must I walk before the end will be ever in sight, A long road, have I traveled
Long Distance Love
though ive met her not in person ive not touched her skin nor do i know the scent of her hair but ive fallen smitten and tis no sin
I Love Her But She Doesnt Notice
I love her yet she doesnt seem to notice my warm eyes full with her and she doesnt even know when i touch her arm i know no bounds of joy and when she laughs my heart leaps from my chest
patrolling through the wasteland me and my platoon do go when as of thin air lethal steel appeared my men and i dropp to the dirt
A Call To The Minutemen
Hear me, ye fellow Dogs of War, You who call yourselves Patriots, Hear me so that I am known, Fore, we are not to be ignored,
Where Is The Peace
Where is the Peace our hearts keys that make us invincible unpiercable, unscathable
A Day At Work
i get here and sit down ready to work yet my mind detests the idea it tries to wander to better places but i wrench it back to reality
my love though we may be apart, separated by the vast oceans blue, the distance no matter how far wont change my feelings for you
Who is it? Who beckons me whilst i sleep this night? And calls my name with such force and weary despair to cause such fright Who is it, who lurks there there, fearfully I plea Whose unbearable force can i sense yet can not see
Strong Moon (Haiku)
when i look deep into your eyes and i not only see but feel the suffering you hold inside your heart, i am consumed with a love, full of compassion and hope for you and i want nothing more than to hold you close
A Soul Redeemed
i once heard a song a melody full of grace so beautiful and serene and lovely a smile was moved to my face and i would sit and i would listen and i knew all was well and then i was issued my spear and a shield and my world it became a hell
i am a warrior an unstoppable force that has a will of its own trained in the vicious and brutal ways of war and yet i have the discipline to remain civilized
Let diamonds sparkle like the stars in all the skies And let no comparison set with the beauty within your eyes
A word that carries power.
smuggles secrets that no one can unflower.
as destructive as some meteor shower.
A word to mean the end
makes you shudder and then decend
into a world you cant defend
