blooming onion

poetry

I’m over 40

don’t know where I’m going

don’t know when it will last

the agony of regrets in my past

each day I’m given

should be worth celebrating right?

adventure about to take flight

any day now

life is mine for the taking

I’m just making

excuses.

am i lazy or unmotivated

or both

gotta shake it off

more Mariah than Taylor

made for me

life, easy, breezy

by the horns

gonna make it

so it is and it is so.

here’s the show!

freedom needed

poetry

you can put make-up on it

you can drink it away

you can be bi, straight or gay

the vessel is the same

learning to live in the now

not circle the drain

i want to forget my pain

drained

poetry

so close to my dreams

can’t get close enough it seems

circling the pipes

nights I stay up

lonely, but don’t give a fuck

please inspire me

don’t know who I’m talking to

just hoped the message come through

I’m drained

need some relief.

some holy night

poetry

this was the day

plans were made

you betrayed my heart

not okay

this was the day

we are to say our vows

how did I not see this before?

My life isn’t over

I wont shoulder this disaster

on my own

What does this mean?

I’m keen on letting you figure it out

don’t forget my name

poetry

this poetry thang

gift from God

rough spots abound

my mind sees a clown

who would try this?

if the shoe fits

and the inspiration hits

go for it

don’t worry if no one reads it

likes or comments

maybe they’ll remember

your name.

meet the strong

poetry

everyday we get up

rise to the occasion

sometimes it’s amazing

until it’s not.

we try our best

put on our super-hero chest

fake it till you make it

the chain is stronger than you think

i realize everyday it’s how you think

thoughts become things

it’s time to think great thoughts

try it, it’s you.

quotes

“ALL PRAISE BE TO GOD TO WHOM ALL PRAISE IS DUE. Let us pursue Him in the righteous path. Yes it is true; ‘seek and ye shall find.’ Only through Him can we know the most wondrous bequeathal […] May we never forget that in the sunshine of our lives, through the storm and after the rain – it is all with God – in all ways and forever. ALL PRAISE TO GOD.”

-John Coltrane, original liner notes to A Love Supreme, 1964

join me

poetry

this is the place

I lay my head

this is the best place

to receive head

you’re the best

I’m the best

seeing this room you know

what’s next

adults only

leave your phony

expectations elsewhere

I’m here to get you hard

and let down your guard

just a minute we need

protection.
