||Favorites? None. I avoid works of literature. Why?..fuckin' learning disabilities; that's why|
| About Me:
||Not your average poet; not your average poetry |
A few years ago, I woke up one morning with an ability to see the truth. Some people might think that's a good thing. However, I see it in situations where I'd rather not see it, as well as in situations where it doesn't want to be seen. So far, this ability seems a hell of a lot more like a disability. To make matters worse, I've developed a perverse compulsion to write about it in poetic form! In all reality, it feels like I've been damned by some kind of curse.
Most of my work pertains to society, drug addiction, middle age dating and some of the relationships formed by the dating process. I am far from a literary scholar...and I have absolutely no desire to even remotely resemble one. If I had to describe my writing style, I'd say that it's pretty goddamn straightforward with a conversational narrative. It's just that I don't want any fluffy imagery clouding the view. Yeah, I'm well aware that my methods for writing poetry seem a bit different; but I just happen to like different anyway
I am not the kind of person who just goes with the flow...'cause it either leaks down into a cesspool...or it flows into one of the streams that eventually end up in the Conformist river-way system; which immediately empties out right into the Great Sea of Stupidity.
The funny thing about the truth is...it's generally ignored unless it tastes like sugar or smells like shit
-Blessed by a curse-
Some poets pen the battles distressing the soul
we see the pain making one feel less than whole
a kind of insight that I'd often rather not believe
hexed by abilities most people cannot conceive
maybe it'd be worth it for a little fame and cash
just one more idle thought that's gone in a flash
I found that poetry can cause women to undress!
words got me laid; but added drama with stress
so what to do with a curse that won't disappear?
and will I have to write this shit year after year?!
Continuous acceptability of mediocrity only lowers the standards for all that is mediocre
If one can get to know their fears intimately...one's fears transform into wisdom
Forgive what you want to forget
The most debilitating fear that exists...is fearing what others think of you
Your vision of Heaven...is certain to be someone's version of Hell
If one always tends to go with the flow...one's intelligence will never exceed a mob mentality.
If you deny or haven't come to terms with your past's tragedies...tragedy will always follow while another lays in wait
Some people say that a penis has a mind of it's own ...but no one has ever said the heart has brains
Modern man is the only species ever to exist instilled to ignore, deny, fantasize and avoid...reality
If fantasy is involved in everything that one finds fun to do...one does not have real fun
If anyone thinks they're normal...I don't want to be anything like them
A bleeding heart drains blood from the brain
The omission of truth is nothing but a lie
Political correctness is really just the government enforcing lobotomies on mainstream society
Q.) How is it possible to fear someone you love?
A.) It's not love
Trust no one 'til you know better
The lack of a will to change prevents emotional balance, cripples intelligence and disables the ability to learn
When you expect people to be like you think they should be...everyone will disappoint you
Facebook...the land where people are just looking to be offended
Never think it's impossible just because you can't imagine it
The biggest mistake made by a majority of those who practice religion...they don't realize that sins can only be truly absolved by receiving forgiveness from those whom they have sinned against
-Rainbows and red hot souls-
To experience the things that really make life beautiful ...one must first experience something that makes Hell horrific
We hate ourselves less...'cause we hate others more
Six beliefs needed to make one whole
-Democracy or delusion?-
If our votes could change the government ...the government would ban us from voting
Accept the impossible and anything becomes possible
-Obsolete is absolute-
The core beliefs that govern your life...need to be routinely checked, updated and sometimes even deleted
-Forever in embers-
If one has a lifelong fear of death and/or Hell...one is guaranteed am eternity in Hell
"Religion is for people who are afraid of going to Hell... Spirituality is for those who have already been there." -Vine Deloria, Sioux-
"I stand by what I say...not what you choose to understand" -words to this effect quoted from a source I forgot-
