Addiction and Suicide
Drug Addiction and suicide are no joke.
Some people find it entertaining when those individuals croak.
Recovering and living I've seen both sides
I just wish people could live their lives.

Whether it's a pill, powder, or a needle
This epidemic can be unspeakable.
Whether it's...Read More

Premium Member Don't Give Up
Don't give up
on precise strategic resilience
and passionate communitarians
winning here and winning now,
now already won here
with and for those with 20/20 sight
hearing
thought with feeling,

Do give up blaming
only your own internal addicted climate
without also shaming your medicine-pushing society
of left-hemisphere verbal violent domination.

Verbal microaggressions
[You are a liar!]
neglect non-violent humanity
as macroaggressions
[uninvited explosions with intent to kill],
rather far beyond verbal bullying,
physically retaliate against abusive inhumanity,
seldom too fastidious
about recognizing collateral damage
to people
pets
plants
planet Earth.

Critical mistrust
[how does this defend democracy?]
may yet remain mindful of Golden Rules,

PERFECTION
Dynamos of Goodness spin and spawn off good
Christians may be expected to seek perfection
But what exactly is it ("Obedience not sacrifice," says the WORD)?
No, not perfection but multiplication
Never ever reaching perfection in this world

Addictions and Change
I battle addictions
And they’re as sweet as honey,
As a summer day and I’m okay
Good feeling’s only price is surrender

I battle addictions
And they feel like watching
Myself rip up rationality,
Building and spreading like cancer

I battle addictions
And they infest every cell
My body, home...Read More

There's Satisfaction In Jesus
You’ll Only Find Satisfaction In Jesus!

Some like to boast about their sexuality.
Do they ever think about their spirituality?

The Bible talks about a problem called SIN.
This is common with all women and men.

It’s a corruption since the beginning of time.
This is...Read More

Addictions

I feel honoured to have known 
Your innermost soul.
And wish I’d had success
In freeing you of demons.

I watched you struggle, 
And gave you guidance.
In return was pushed away.

So I hypnotize you
With my big brown eyes, 
And take you on a...Read More

Premium Member Silent Scream of Anxiety
No one ever invited him to a birthday party
Relatives asks his parents to get a sitter
For when they do bring him around
He breaks all of the things he can
Showing his sadness

At three he had been kicked out of two preschools

Up to Me
We are virtually interconnected
Yet socially disconnect to our demise
Modernity rewards ignorance
The ignorant condemn the wise

We’re a society addicted to addictions
Hungry for knowledge that’s void of proof
Confirmation bias is perplexing and pervasive
Paradoxically – leaving us disinterested in The Truth

Going Without
With over-abundance and all kinds of addictions staring me in the face,
I like to, just occasionally, make do or go without, 
Even when I don't have to.

I sometimes even pretend I have no car,
No matter what the weather.

Death ...

Death is NOT the enemy
It is but the longest part of eternity
The essential part that gives life its preciousness and value
It is the body's rest, the spirit's release, and the soul's freedom
When we again join tenderly with the Universe...Read More

The King of Kegs

He was the town drunk, that
everyone loved.
Didn't care about being arrested
nor his children going food less.
But at the bar, oh such a big hit.
Always knew tons of jokes, he
was the King of the Kegs!
And nary a night,...Read More

My calling
Did I sign a contract?
For these personal life experiences slept beside my always busy mind
Calling to me

As I stumbled down the Devil’s staircase
Once encased by my addictions
Bathed and soaked scars that I allowed myself to control and define me

Suddenly,

"One More Thing"

This morning
Clouds forming
Soon to be storming

Most ignoring
The warning
Continually warring

Waters forking
Rapids roaring
Avians soaring
As events continue coursing

Heard enough recordings
That were reporting
About global warming

Whether it's sunny or pouring
Cold or scorching
Dogs and cats arrive for boarding
In a building with tile flooring

Bottles uncorking

Gardeners and farmers know better 
than to feed and water the weeds.

Psychologists and sociologists agree, 
 best way to manage an unrepentant narcissist 
is to ignore him 
and his ego-privileged run-away lose/lose habits, 
addictions, 
ranting paranoia.

Aged sixteen when it all begins

If you Love me,
Don't give in to all my demands,
Don't excuse my bad behaviour,
Or give me praise for doing nothing.

If you Love me,
Don't believe everything I say,
Don't give me extravagant presents,
Or tell lies on my behalf.

Going inside to get out
Traversing the transition 
Repeating my numbers 
Kneeling at the most expensive 
Waiting by the moving cocoon 
Waving to my beginning 
Embracing my end

Puddles become oceans
