Phoenix Rising

Once upon a time, I thought I was fine

That everything was alright, and I’d survive

Oh, once upon a time, all I did was cry

But never in your sight, I kept it locked up tight

Then you came in from nowhere trying to make things better

Yeah, you said they’d be better, after while

And goodness knows that I should have known better

Than to trust a devil in the guise of angel

 

Pull me under, let me drown in your lies

Because struggle as I might, I’m stuck in your eyes

Yeah, hold me under, let me drown in your strife

To never get a life, stuck in your eyes

But I will rise

 

The second time you shoved my face into the dirt

And I tried to make it work, but not anymore

So I push and I shove and I squirm to escape this fate

Pass through the demon’s gate

To stand on my own two feet again

But you struggle and pull me down back to a time before

Where I was a docile bore,

And I can’t go back there any more

 

But you pull me under and let me drown in your lies

Because struggle as I might, I’m stuck, stuck in your eyes

Yeah, hold me under and let me drown in your strife

To never get a life, stuck in your eyes

But I will rise

 

Above everything that you thought I should be

This life is mine, there was never a ‘we’

Let go of the past so that I can be me, me

 

So you pull me under and let me drown in your lies

And struggle as I might, I’ll escape the pain in your eyes

Try to hold me under and let me drown in your strife

But I will get a life, nevermore in your sight

And I will rise

NaNoWriMo (and Contests For Writers)!

Alright, so I am currently trying to win the contest that’s happening athttps://tablo.io/ to gain a publishing contract. The contest is based on how many people go to Tablo and register (for free) and subscribe to my book, as well as read it. They measure the analytical aspects and the top three with the highest and best rated novel wins the chance to be picked up by a publishing company.
If you can only access it from mobile, there’s a mobile app called Tablo Reader, available for iOS and Android that you can download.
It’ only 3.07 MB and you can access the book from there too. It is also free.
All I ask is that you help me with this. I’ve never won anything a day in my life, and winning this (even if it is just this once) would make everything turn around.
You don’t have to pay for anything. All you have to do is read. Here’s what you do:
1. Go to Tablo.io
2. Sign up (again it’s free!)
3. Search for Ezra Zydan
4. Subscribe to the Tales of the Firewing novel, currently in progress
5. Keep up with the updates (I will post about those as soon as I update more)


That’s it, you’re in! 

NaNoWriMo!

As a writer with a manuscript, it’s rather difficult to find someone willing to take a look at it, even if you know all the right people. Sadly, I do not know them, and that may or may not have attributed to the low amount of sales my first novel has suffered from. It won’t deter me from my writing though, as I actually enjoy writing this series. The subplots in this one will be deeper, the characters a lot more vibrant, and the story telling even more compelling than before.

I will be participating in the NaNoWriMo this November, in order to complete the second novel in the Tales of the Firewing series, “In Gaea’s Favor (Book II)”. I can only hope that my work will draw in more readers than I had in the past.

For now, my first novel, “Guardians of Gaea (Book I)” is available on Smashwords for $3.99! The link will be posted below:

Ghost of Love

White lilies surround me
In this field of lonely times
I feel your presence right beside me
And it takes all not to cry
Your silhouette
Your glowing smile
Your vast intellect
You’re everything to me
Ease my suffering
When I’m a mess
I’m at my worst
While you’re at your best
These petals began to fall
When you went to your rest
There’s shadows on the wall
When the sun’s at my breast
Your soulful eyes
Compassion and desire
You suffered in this world
From all the sins that transpired
I’m no religious man
But I would change my ways
If I could take your hand
And recreate my past
But that was then
This here’s the now
Absence makes the heart break when you know they’re not returning to you.

Journalister Is Nearly Here!

I’ve been working on some stories that I’ve been saving for the public beta launch of Journalister. This is a site for people that would love to write and put themselves out there, and love to read works from other writers (be they fan fiction, or original stories). There will be several types of writing available to read or submit, from reviews, to short stories, to poetry and everything in between! I have been an advocate for this site since its inception and I am hoping that many of you will join us on this magnificent journey.

Public beta launch is 27 March 2015!
