1 LINE OF IMPORTANT ADVICE NOBODY TELLS YOU
LIFE IS GIVEN TO YOU FOR FREE, BUT EVERYONE STILL MUST EVENTUALLY LEARN TO EARN IT
"Living day-by-day "She said
as the cars pass us by.
one blue, one green one red.
at times she would look away
for a good place to hide her head.
she said "the only times its peaceful son
is in the morning before the world awakes".
dirty hair hanging down
she smiled as much as she could
so many lost smiles over the last couple of years
gone unappriciated or noticed
but given none-the-less
as the wind would blow through her tangled hair
she said she "felt alive again".
to play Darwins game of survival of the fittest
blurry eyes, weathered and worn.
Not your new baby child to the streets
Enough time for all of her cloths to become
dirty, ripped and torn.
hunger pains and hangovers....
hunger pains and hangovers....
hunger pains and hangovers to infinity it seems
"living day-by-day" she said.
ss- From As of Now
Reworked old write
I believe more each day that
all things start as one
become one again in the end
ashes to ashes children
and dust to dust
All fallen stars eventually show rust
Look up at night
far away from the city light
and sky pollution
find a place that has not yet been encroached on
like moths to a flame or a drunkard belling up
the stars are of our old ancestors
both our brothers and sisters of the universe
shining lights to guide us
to teach us how to move forward
how to grow and sustain life
no matter how smart we think we are
no matter what you believe in
we are all here together
like it or not
god is love
life is love
tolerance is important to learn and utilize
Be kind to one another folks
both black and white
the skin is just a vessel
for the heart and mind
that we all share inside
leaving only the old angers and colors to divide
conscious minds become weak under pressure
melting like putty when pressure demands
why do we forget this
on all sides of the coin and evil dollar bills
life was never meant to be fair
and the earth is made of the beast
enjoy the beautiful things that you pass by daily on your journey
life is given free but one still must eventually learn to earn it
The body is a temple for us to build or destroy
the mouth can be a heel or snake charmer
so be weary and question everything
watch your back
teach yourself to learn
to reach your highest mind
armed with peace,hope, and love
the eyes are the windows to the soul
and if you break it, you buy it.
I am learning only memories last
and stay with you forever
memories are yours only
inside your private eye to replay and remember
most often made and shared with the help of many
"all good things go away in the end"
last you forever
they are yours to earn and keep for better or worse
standing the test of time locked away in your mind
everything else seems to be fleeting and shallow
Another great weekend
the heat kept us all warm and cozy
southern humidity "fits just like a glove"
as it grips you and rolls down your backside and off your wrist and cheeks
again you wipe the sweat from your brow
the dog days of summer are here
in full furry and with perfect timing like the blood moon on the solstice
the hazy vapor on the roads like desert mirages in the sand
sweltering up like steam from the boiling sweet tea that is on the stove
swimming pools, lakes, and rivers act as watering holes
hit the water for summer fun and long drunken boat rides to party island
another great weekend
in this town that knows us all too well
the locals stick together like the home team
like the pants on the backs of your legs as you arise from the seats
All going to Nowhere
to see and hear the downtown hustle and bustle
of a town minus all the college students and extra cars
"WE CAN PARK!!"
