Good evening everyone! I hope everyone has had a great week so far. Tomorrow is Friday and that’s not a bad thing at all. I wanted to talk about something different tonight. This week I have been reading and actually seeing in my job a bias against millennials. I mean a lot of negative things. “Millennials are entitled, spoiled, lazy”. I have heard and read it all this week. I don’t understand it.Continue reading “In Support of Millennials”
Hello again! I am trying something new tonight. I am going to try and write a poem off the fly. See if I can shake the rust out of my mind and soul and actually create something. It’s been quite a while since I have written, but I am going to see what happens.Continue reading “Yet another Poem, but wait it’s a New One!”
Good evening all! Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far. It’s been pretty uneventful so far here. A typical work week with the typical stresses and misgivings. So I am finally making good on my promise to post more. Might end up being a rambling mess, but I guess you guys are used to that by now.Continue reading “Tuesday’s Gone”
Good morning all. I hope everyone is having a relaxing Saturday morning. It has been a hectic week for me and posting here was put on the back burner. I am trying to see what I need to do to liven up this blog, but I am not sure yet. I do want to do more reviews of movies and music and the occasional book. I just want to bring something new to the table but I am not sure just how to do that yet. So I decided to post some more old poems. I do enjoy sharing these and I it feels to go these out there. Maybe it’s vanity or just wanting some recognition, but it nice to see when these posts get as many likes as they do. I want to thank everyone who takes time to read them.Continue reading “Poems Volume 3”
Good evening all! I hope everyone had a good Monday. The start of a new working week for the 9 to 5 crowd like me. My normal Monday morning routine actually starts on Sunday night. It starts with the soul crushing dread I feel before bed. That usually leads to either a sleepless night or at the very least a night with three hours sleep and horrible dreams. The latter was my night last night.
Good evening all! It has been a bit since I have posted, but I have been out of town and just got back late last night. As the title says, it was for a wedding that my wife and I took off to Wisconsin. This was our great grand niece on my wife’s side getting married to her true love. This is the first time in a very long time that I have actually seen two people truly in love.Continue reading “A Wisconsin Wedding Weekend”
Good evening all. Hope everyone is doing well! Not a lot going on tonight, just thought I’d not down a couple of random thoughts I’ve had today. Work was slow, so my mind wandered off a lot. So I think I’m going to start writing more. Not just on the blog, but more for myself. Start up writing my poetry again. I want to get back into it. This blog seems to be a good format for it. I received quiet a few likes for my last poetry post. (Thanks everyone who took the time to like my post). It was a confidence booster, I have to say.
Good afternoon all! I hope everyone is doing well today. I’m going down again in some murky water today. I’m going to talk about Republican Jesus. Now Republican Jesus (RJ for the rest of the article), from what I have seen and read is a white male with a strong hatred for minorities, LGBQT, basically anyone not white. He’s also a Capitalist and knows that the USA is the only country that can make sense of this crazy world.
Hello all! it has been a bit since I last posted. been fighting off a sinus infection and I just did not feel like getting on and posting much. Not a lot going on lately other than being sick. That said, I am going to post a few of my poems tonight. I know there are a couple of you out there that read my blog and I’d like to know what you think. I am not one to use a lot word tricks or anything really clever, it is just basic emotions I have put down on paper over the years that happen to rhyme. So I will submit these now and I will get back to blogging more consistently.
The first one here is call “Moments”. I don’t usually title anything I write, but I felt this needed something. I wrote this many years ago when I was in college.
A Wave good-bye
A Moment of Bliss
A Tremble of Desire
A Quick thought of sin
A Sudden rush of fear...
You see, it is a simple poem, but I do think it says a bit about how and what we can experience, especially with that certain someone. A lot of my poems back in my younger days were about lost love, yearning, longing for that one true love. I suppose a lot of young men feel the same way. I had this jumble of emotions and confusion in myself and I wasn’t sure how to express it other than in my poetry.
Now this next one is also about love. It is what I thought the ideal love would be like. It’s very idealistic and probably not based in reality, but that is the great thing about love; it doesn’t have to make sense. It is called “Love is”.
Love is just one moment in time; yet it lasts forever.
Love is when two people meet and they realize that the other is the one.
Love is holding hands and stolen kisses on a long summer night.
Love is being there the next morning.
Love is elusive; but when caught, love never goes away
Love is confusing, but love brings understanding.
Love is looking into eyes and trembling inside.
Love is a living thing. It needs care and attention to make it grow.
Love is being there every day and every night.
Love is a flame that burns eternally.
I guess it is kind of sappy and hokey now that I see it written out again. I still think it holds true though. Love doesn’t change, the way we see it and feel it does however. Young love is full of passion, lust and energy. It is though long walks, those stolen moments of love when you are next to that certain person. Older love becomes more pragmatic and practical. It is just as strong, but you’re there for when things go wrong more, just because more can go wrong when you’re older.
I will leave you tonight with this last short verse. everyone has the capacity to love. It’s whether or not we believe in ourselves and allow ourselves to feel. That in turn, runs the risk of being hurt, but you can’t never love if you don’t try.
If you can breathe you can love.
If you can love you can give.
If you can give you can live.
If you can live you can love.
Take care all. I will be posting again soon.
