“Our Common State”


walk through a garden
soil, un-tilled, dry and coarse
leaves wilted and hardened
rocks aside and water given
problem with progression
moving and giving some things not worth repeating

valley low to mountain high
flags raised, alarms sound
obtain tactics to scare
whats wrong
from sky to sand we walk on

life source depleting
under privileged not eating
wives and kids abused… beaten
no mercy given

society has no reason to hire me
oppression tires me
minds chopped and screwed

myself …
thankful for being so blessed
putting my life’s soul to the test
I don’t have everything
but im up again going for the rest
we deserve what we work for and get

young become parents
so there is faulty foundation
tell me
dimensions for the next generation
what are they rendered and grown out from
abortions, high murder rate,
economic downfall, high interest rates
not to mention all this hate
this is the worst … developing some of the hardest things to break

looking for love
so it can vibrate,
we meditate
trying to elevate
issues we must solve, resolve and dissolve
if we are ever to reach our proper place

Just thinking of the world we live in and how or what can I do to help change it. Change it for the better. After all we call it “home” we should attempt to clean and fix it up.

As Always…

Stay Positive!

“Thoughts – 16”

We started way too deep, way too quick.
Totally explosive.
I used you as meds speedily increased my dosage.
Since you were willing I was unscrupulous.

Can you forgive me ???

Even tho I know I could, it doesn`t mean that I should…

I was wrong…

Something internally, is undoubtedly, wrong…

with me. Is this me ?
I`m confused with my own nature…
My own behaviour
I`ve crossed the line marked caution
Heading right into labeled danger.

“Hi, stranger”…

We don’t speak, We do speak
grab the silent bite to eat 
but in writing.
exchange the quiet, private exchange
You can`t hear my stuttered speech.
what we have right now…

Pick my brain.
I lay my words…

when you cross my mind
You see this;
it will either strengthen or extinguish…

It does not matter…

if by chance this stays the same…  
or we stop,
I know I wouldn`t be the same.

They say making love is also accomplished in the brain,

there in… is where the problem begins.  
When it comes down to it.
You have your hand in a piece of me
Where my icons live, pieces of my soul
I readily give.
I think I’m drunk,
I have been broken by the train of words alone
 innocence of imagination, has steered me wrong
you have taken me under your arms
help build foundation…
something to stand on
a person of relevance
I would hate to see… pass on…

Sometimes people come into your life that make such an unexpected impact. It would be disastrous if they were ever not be around anymore.
As Always…
Stay Positive!

“Thoughts – 15”

always in darkness for a while
even the most resilient
sometimes find it hard to smile
not staying in touch
does not mean
I don’t love you as much
I will sacrifice
to be there
frozen under 3 inches of ice
passed on to the afterlife
I would be back just to make it right
for what you’re going through
battle demons to support you
I know im not always there for you
but when i`m there
i`ll always come through

I figure I have my moments of clarity. I would like to think that this was a great passage of time. Even tho this write came about because of not being able to put magnificent words together; in a moment of what I would call my writer’s block. This is what comes out of it .

It’s so many people we have that come into our lives that we would want to do the best by them. This is dedicated to the people in my life that make me want to perform at my best at all times so that I will never let them down. I know as a father, brother, son, family member and best friend, I have people counting on me and that if I so happened not to be around one day I would be missed…

As Always…

Stay Positive!
