Modern Southern
American poet...

Cheers everybody.

art is long,life is short, and success is very far off...

it is only a matter of time before the whole world snaps underneath the load
Too much too much
things change
things stay the same
roll with the punches
take it on the chin and get back up swinging

there is light and reason in all darkness if you look hard enough

The mind left body
my head has wings
i fly above the clouds
then i come back down
to pick myself up off the ground again

The soul is strong but the body is weak
keep feeding the monkey
keep feeding the mind
stay tough, stay rigid, stay liquid
let the rain roll off your back each time it starts to storm

The masses of information that is passed along the waves
the things you see may not always be the same
life moves forward at all times
do not get caught with your heads in the sand
use your minds eye, your third eye

Keep on dreaming, you have all dreamed before
the bell keeps on ringing inside my dome
my ears start to scream as the locomotion of life gets moving
my hands are tough, kaleidoscopes of scars, burns, and work

The Mind left body
Float around and around
be the fly on the wall
open your mind and feel the breeze on your skin
give love, feed your soul with love
take as much as you give

life at its best
what best is this...?
one more time
i come to you with yesterdays vows
like the rain
pouring down
she awoke with a flinch and a quick grab for the pistol under her cushion
more aware now that life is real
reality bites hard and fast when you lose your loved ones etc...
fears pass through my soul
her hair blows in the breeze like stalks of golden locks
pounding her fist
slamming her head against the wall
things are coming unglued you could say
sound is magnified in this new state of being alive
being alone
left after all the years of teamwork love and hate
i wish i would have paid more attention to the details
not letting so much pass by with idle minds and hands
like the sun that shines
you can believe that you don't know what you have until it is gone...
is it better to have loved and lost than ever loved at all
go figure
life's a wonderfully cruel bitch some may say
believe in your own future as you create in every moment
you continue to breathe.

When the going gets rough what will you do?
Are you a survivor?
Do you know yourself?
What do you know?

Everyone must ask themselves this
Once in a while you may get tested
When life gets real etc etc
Fight or Flight?

Take a stand for what you are
Take a stand for who you are
Be you
Live as if there is no tomorrow

Push it to the limit,
See what you can see
Wash away the filters
Face reality

WE ALL WILL LIVE FOREVER(take a load off)

take a load off
we all need to remember to do this more often
just let go of it all
let the load fall off your tired and sore shoulders and crumbling backbones
get some rest
"dream a little dream"
give your haggard face and body a break
the bags under the eyes need to be emptied now and again
only if you can.....this can be an issue:
Murphy's Law
"what can go wrong will go wrong"

take a load off
just take time to be a family
take time to be a family member
my family shows its best underneath the load
we seem to need the weight of the world to draw us closer,
and for some to show their true love for each other
God and the universe has gifted me this over the years

we are strong, we are tough, we are tried and true and
we are loyal

take a load off
you can always lean on me
i am like a rock
stubborn by nature
not always pretty but meaning well

take a load off
remember what you have all around you all the time
i have it all if i can just remember the day of the week
i have it all if i can just let go of my demons, my worries etc...
i have it all

it is true that when the cards are down and
the walls are falling in on you and
the ground is shaking
and your mind feels alone
take a load off
GODS is with us everyday of our life here together on earth in this vast space and time hurling like a fastball seeming to be in chaos but in perfect harmony
the opposite of chaos is harmony and with harmony comes music and art and beauty.....
he was before you
he is after you, and
always know we must

take a load off
