Forbidden – Poem #200

What once was

No longer makes sense

Or what is now

Is just a dream

Holding on to

A fading glance

The smallest twinkle

In the stars

Forbidden, really though?

Three harsh syllables

Butterflies stir

Say it again

The root starts to flame

Forbidden, really though!

With three harsh syllables

The glass ceiling shatters

Leaving butterfly wings

Pinned for display

With three harsh syllables

The flame crawls too high

Singeing the edges

Of hope, leaving dismay

Well…

I cannot believe it’s been so long since I have posted anything here.  Life has a weird way of catching up to you and before you know it, you’re stuck in traffic. Good news is that traffic always let’s up, it just may take a while.

So I’ve decided to get off the highway for a while

 and cruise down some backroads. Hopefully this will give me time to do what I love to do. Write.

Love, peace, and Blessed Be

Another Tidbit from the Fast Lane

We are the people our parents warned us about. Yup. It’s true. But you know what? We realize that you only have one life to live. So smoke, drink, and do whatever the fuck you want. Just make sure you have your shit together. Spend your money in the right places and have some responsibility. Being an adult is hard work and I know I’m still learning how to do it. Honestly, we will never fully “learn” how to adult properly. That’s half the fun. 

Living in the fast lane is great! You pass all the people that you don’t need in your life. The ones that can’t drive. Sometimes you’ll get that asshole that goes 5 miles under the speed limit in the fast lane and slows down traffic, but eventually you’ll get around them. Those are the people who think they can handle it but really can’t. They are very good at slowing down the people around them. I know I’ve said this before but misery loves company.

 So if you can’t handle it, move over and let everyone else get on with their lives. Stop being a roadblock. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and do something to change your life. Stop focusing on bringing other people down with you. That’s bullshit. The. End.
