“Having a low opinion of yourself is not ‘modesty.’ It’s self-destruction. Holding your uniqueness in high regard is not ‘egotism.’ It’s a necessary precondition to happiness and success.” ― Bobbe Sommer
The government wants to lock me up For I don’t fit into their diabolic plan Turning society into robotic morons I just can’t continue to work for The Man Trying to sell us artificial stimulants Fickle airwaves that their bully pulpit bought Falsified histories & professional victims The system wipes us away without any thoughtContinue reading “The Government Wants To Lock Me Up”
Two lost souls, like beachcombersLooking for lost things; love & suchDistant memories of happinessThe feeling of being needed; a touchNestled within a Siren’s lullabyWe never could grasp our fateShrugging off the daily strugglesOur only choice is to circumnavigate
How could I not be happy With this fine woman by my side Always standing on the dock Waiting for me to return with the tide
Gripping lightly to the banisterOur lives slipping away into the ether’s shadowGracefully stepping down each marble stepNever succumbing to their expectations of the afterglowHolding your head up high in dignityWear the fancy clothes; wear your favorite scentKnowing they’ll despise your happiness anywayRemaining this awesome was never an accident

Please don’t question my reality You’re pandering to a common goal I’m eradicating acute boredom Freeing another fractured soul Redefining fantasy on a personal level The subtle witness under the veil Finding happiness outside expectation Wishing our dreams weren’t so frail
The wind howling at midnightBroken windows – open to the outside airExposed to the communal by-passerHer soul had fallen into disrepairFatigue & listless emotions manifestingImmune to careless complimentsTime to pause & regroup her focusHappiness born from common sense
“The world’s big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.”― John Muir
I hope everyone has a happy and healthy new year. Much love to y’all!
“I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active – not more happy – nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.” ― Edgar Allan Poe
Hope everyone’s Christmas was delicious & merry as my suit!
“Show me a man who doesn’t go down on his wife and I’ll show you a man whose wife I can sleep with, tonight.” – Leo Durocher
