Blow smoke up his ass and you’re admired.   “Mandated” by the skin of his tooth, with factless frenzy, he betrays what’s real. It’s his […]

Let Go, Let God

It’s hard to give over control, as if, I ever had control. It’s hard to say, “I’ve lost control”, assuming I was in control.   I’ve noticed some just want answers, and there are really no answers. I’ve noticed some make up answers, despite questions without answers.   I cannot create solutions grasping at straws […]

Collusion

I am who I am, I stand here and now.   I loathe the dark and accept my shadow. I love the light and confuse clarity.   Sometimes my heart conspires with my will. Sometimes my mind overrules my body.   I straddle the truth. I live there and then.   Resistance is futile, to […]

Fear Itself

No one knows but me my fear No one cares or sheds a tear.   To look with cursory glance, one would not have an inkling of my distress or trembling.   Shoulders straight and chest held high, I walk with calm assurance playing an all-is-well stance.   Alone in my room I cringe and […]
