Writers, writers Change the world “But what of Trump?” “Ha! That little girl” He can smile Nod and wink But we here writers? Change how you think No greater power ‘twas, before The pen and pad and dark locked door So do your worst, you politics We’ve molded how your small brain ticks Take that! … More Writers, writers

Here

I don’t care where you have been For your past, or any sin All that matters is right now and that you’re here with me today All the feelings now upon us You can tell me – just be honest I know I’ll feel the same no matter what you think you’ll say I’ve been … More Here

Lie Awake

Alone tonight, can’t sleep, it’s true Cause all my thoughts, well, they’re on you Where’d you come from? Souls amiss You know, I didn’t plan for this Never thought of fonder things My mind has all these wanderings Keep it focused But wait, one sec That hug you gave around my neck It stayed with … More Lie Awake

Am I Crazy?

Am I crazy? Probably But let’s keep that ‘tween you and me Sure, I think – I think a lot I think and think and think and think and tie my brain into a knot Maybe I’m supposed to think about the things the news tells me Maybe I’m supposed to think about what gets … More Am I Crazy?

We Are One

Though you are gone, I won’t forget For you are still among us, yet Whispering your wise old words As I sit listening, among the birds I look to you. Look up, you see? I stand before you on my knee Grateful for the words you gave On how to love, how to behave Tacitus, … More We Are One

Cancel Culture

Convictions rest on strongest wills But why make mountains out of hills? Declaring war for stubborn sakes And making oceans out of lakes Despite the things you think you mean That’s not a river, it’s a stream The water’s current needs to slow Know you reap what things you sow These thoughts, they drift inside … More Cancel Culture

The Lonely Violin

The Lonely Violin I want so much to leave these things I want so much to still these strings I want, so much, a calm within Please slow your tempo, violin Your music brings the light of day I know this, love, it leads the way The songs you sing are beauty, yes Yet torment … More The Lonely Violin

My Last Prayer

Are you there, Lord? I need to know I need the truth I need it so I do not know if acts of mine Are of free will, or yours divine The more I ask myself of this The less I think that you exist Why won’t you simply speak to me? Why won’t you … More My Last Prayer

Haters, Explained

I’d like to take a moment to discuss the concept of “haters”. Because I believe I have figured something out that makes a lot more sense to me now than it did years ago when I just got started into writing stuff. Human beings are animals. I think we can all come to terms with … More Haters, Explained

123

Speak a little louder ya’ll, it’s kinda hard to hear you now All these voices screaming, shouting, everybody’s crying foul “They don’t like me!” “They’re so hateful!” “This is how I want to live!” Let me dig a hole (or hill?) for all the fucks I want to give Look. No one really cares about … More 123

Never Surrender

There is no kind to rest my mind, are these thoughts blessings or a curse I do not know, but they all grow, inside me plaguing every verse Why can’t I shake them, I so hate them, they pull my drive back in reverse These words I’ve leaned on make me better but sometimes they … More Never Surrender

April, I Quit

It’s been too long I’ve tried too much Overnight fame and fortune Both of them are out of touch No longer can I spend all this time and energy Chasing things that may not even be in front of me That’s it. I quit. You heard me right I’m done for now Back to clocks, … More April, I Quit

A New World

A New World You and I know things that we sweep under carpet, here and now You and I know things are coming that will stir the idle crowd I think I needith not make mention of what worldly change I speak For all of you, if signs are true, are stronger when you’re with … More A New World

Karma

Good morning, love, how did you sleep? Such time I spent tidying my keep I made your bed, your candles lit Comfort comes, I made sure of it My bosom is but yours to use I only ask you don’t abuse I only ask that you take care For all my lands are yours to … More Karma

Sincerity

Local town hall, forum, debate The things they say will quell the hate The Senate’s fought since Rome, you know And what do we now have to show? They talk of change, they talk of new They say the things we all want to Yet when the hammer meets anvil They stand, complacent, they all … More Sincerity
