Another day, Another Shooting, Keeping America Great

Another mass killing, Another white guy on a mass killing spree. People sending their thoughts and prayers. FACE IT people if GOD cared , he ignored their prayers.  This is what our country has become. We’re all to blame for the state it’s in. Welcome to America, where just as likely to die on your knees as on your feet.

Five will get you ten that some dip shit televangelist will claim its GOD will. While others will go on the 2nd amendment defensive. Don’t take my assault rifle from me. Or better yet rattle off how if the people at the church had been armed they’d be alive.

Outsider

From the face of the Earth I dropped
Without nary a sound nor hope to be stopped
Gone was I
Quicker than you could blink an eye
Lost in the cracks between the space
Existing now without a face
No book to record my progress
Nor announce my disgrace
Nothing to proclaim the victories
Or leave my stories
I become the outsider
A technological divider
No longer looking inside
Only looking at the outside
Seeing the quiet calm of peace
And learning of the eternal feast
Held in the quiet of forgotten days
And older ways

Disconnect

Disconnection
Changing course
Leaving behind weight
Searching for that oasis
I know it’s on the horizon
Past the edge of the map
Past where monsters dwell
Over the rainbow
And beyond the gates of Eden
Into the land of Nod
Just north of the Styx
I’ll find my spot
Far away from all noise
Far from the memories
Far from the failure
I’ll find that paradise
And will live on in the whispers of shadows

Disappearing ink

Sleep the little death

Brief glimpses of peace

Power naps to recharge the soul

As empathy takes a toll

The state of the world confusing

A bomb that’s not diffusing

 

I exist in the past

Dwelling in the future

While surviving the present

Ever scheming of ways

To become whole

In the dreaming of a soul

 

Forgotten memories

That recall tragedies

Are all that fuel the heart

In creating the dissolving art
