It is amazing how growing up, some stories have a lasting impact on your life. They are stories of courage, perseverance, overcoming nearly impossible odds. Stories of how unlikely people can grow to become something great! Since I was a kid, one of my favorite stories was actually the story of Samus Aran from the hit Nintendo (NES) game and series, Metriod! Samus was the … Continue reading Samus- Destined For Greatness- Part 1 (The Kidnapping)
Upon enjoying my vacation in beautiful Emerald Hill/ I felt refreshed laid back feet up sipping on coconut milk/ This is a much needed break for the fastest thing alive/ Sonic the Hedgehog is my name, into the mellow I dive/ Which is the song I sing as I backstroke in the Aquatic Mine/ A zone in Sonic Adventure 2 where I like to swim … Continue reading A Vintage Retroman’s Plea From The “Green Hill Zone” Part 2, “The Search for V.R.”
Sonic, where are you? Sonic, where are you? So ironic that I’m searching and cannot find you!/ Let me remind you, you are the hero, don’t make me beg man/ When the clock goes zero, game over, the winner will be Eggman/ I’ve searched far and wide, in and out of this Green Hill Zone/ No trace of blue in the area as i search … Continue reading A Vintage Retroman’s Plea From The “Green Hill Zone” Part 1, “The Disaster”
May 1st, 1983 a king was born. As I look back reflecting on the events of my life the past 35 years on my birthday, I cannot help but feel grateful for the people and experiences I have encountered for my own personal growth.

It’s year 20xx and the world’s in a cluster/ Dr. Light just put the finishing touches on my MegaBuster/ As I look around, destruction robot parts in the streets/ It’s me and my dog Rush against the world and I hold the key/ To save humanity, from robot masters created for terrorism/ Even my own brother “Protoman” hypnotized by a whistle/ Cutman, is so sharp … Continue reading Poem- MegaMan’s Blast from the Past!
It’s alright to think of past times and cherish the memories/ The pure love we share with others creates unique synergies/ As days goes on and hearts heal and yet and still it takes time/ People don’t understand thoughts many times, are bittersweet like vintage wine/ It’s quite alright to feel the pain of loss sometimes you have to/ You are only human in the … Continue reading Poem- Bittersweet Memories
Where did these green clothes come from, how did I get here?/ Why do I look around and there’s nothing but an open field here?/ I observe and see the boulders and a couple of trees/ In dusty Hyrule field, no weapon, magic, or rupees/ My name is Link, I just got word that Zelda is missing/ The King of Hyrule’s going crazy, the … Continue reading Zelda Poem- Link, A Hero’s Moment
