she cries

sadness lingers inside
and stays for awhile

while she leaves the room smiling

mending hand
water and sun
full of life
when forgotten
bent down
flowers blossom
it dies

The morning dew
caution oh spring
for the wind is chilly
it'll likely cut your head off
if you are not

the saddest silhouette
is the one the sings the most beautiful song
to an empty field
of desolation
in the far reaches of the abyss
where true meaning lies

the world is devoid of that mist
of pristine sorrow
of real pain and suffering and of

Those Winter Sundays - Robert Hayden

Sundays too my father got up early
and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold,
then with cracked hands that ached
from labor in the weekday weather made
banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him.

I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking.
When the rooms were warm, he’d call,
and slowly I would rise and dress,
fearing the chronic angers of that house,

Speaking indifferently to him,
who had driven out the cold
and polished my good shoes as well.
What did I know, what did I know
of love’s austere and lonely offices?

Strong, silent type.....

Its been awhile

A neglected blog is often very quickly forgotten.

The air forsakes us, much like an aborted child given way of free choice.

I say to you this, and I promise you: live once in the shoes of the destitute in the arid, dissolving cactus of abandonment and tell me why you continue the obsessive compulsion to complain? You have a headache, they have starvation. You have a half-cooked meal, they have none.
Yet you continue to lament?

We lament that we have no shoes until we meet a man with no feet. Realization is abhorrently empty without self-actualization and the desire to rectify and embrace.

We travel the road of convenience - cowardice and dismissive of the thorns that pricked our forefathers. Fighting for the sanctity of religion yesteryear; now we quarrel over rights of homosexuals. Is there no shame?

We continue to be the music we hear, the television we watch, the things we eat and the things we own. Assimilation by virtue of progressive pop culture; now the onus is on losing virginity rather than acquisition of social and moral responsibilities.

Intelligent thought is subjugated to defeatism and cynical surrender. Our thoughts belie our nature, but yet conform to collectivism. Packaged to behave in a certain way;


with core issues.

Our opinions are fuelled by misplaced preconceptions: unfounded biases used to project our versions of what we believe to be true- yet knowing how horribly false we all are.

Light is everywhere, yet we choose to be enshrouded in darkness.

The air forsakes us, much like an aborted child given way of free choice.

A neglected blog is often very quickly forgotten.

Incessant trembling, death lingers.
Gangrene, syringe and a broken promise
A sense of longing, of time lost
Not even winds will carry his sorrow
aloft he hangs from the sky, overrun and
