I don’t know how long I’ll be here,
or what trials I will encounter,
but I do know, that this life,
is truly a gift from a superior power
The one whom we call Father,
that we adore.
Who gave us our first breath of life,
when we came knocking at his door.
I live each day, as if it were my last,
not knowing what journey will be
on my path.
Every breath that I take,
it is a gift,
that I will not forsake.
is a beauty in a loving artist’s creation.
All the clouds painted on the portrait
is not an act of science,
but an act of love.
While in numbers, life may seem incredibly long,
it is actually very short.
We must embrace every opportunity,
and if given the chance,
fly with the doves,
to see how high they will take us…
Only by chance,
we may get the chance
to walk these paths here again on this Earth…
But may not realize until our eyes are open
from the deep sleep that we have been in.
This world of multitudes,
universe of galaxies,
sky of stars,
it continues to dance on forever…
One day, we all will be infinite souls,
moving only to the music played by
as we embrace his everlasting love.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.”
Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls….
Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International.
She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein.
Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“
During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
