Sing a song
Dance with heart
Is really an art
Laugh with abandon
Relearn how to feel
When you realize this is real
Some of us give up
Some of us give in
Forgetting how to harmonize
So the demons won’t win
I am deeply saddened by the lose of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, this one is a tribute to him.

Today is two days after Xmas. Princess Leah is gone. Jabba the Hut anyone? She was beautiful inside and out. Come on, Lenny, Prince, and David, just to name few more. In my humble opinion, Princess Diana was the beginning of the end of my generation of people taught to be obsessed with attention. I would just like make it passed this years finish line before another exctremly influencial ‘Demi-god’ leaves us. RIP Ms. Fisher.

A sour explosion as my teeth grind the mandarin wedge between them
Brief moment of disappointment in hopes for something sweet…
With momentary shock, I realize that orange peel had deceived me
My mouth is only searching for its next piece, baited and waiting
I pop in another, the chemicals coursing through my body
Much to my pleasured amazement, I push aside my caffeine
As the tart rhythm moves my body into the rising of the sun.JM2016
On second thought
I change my mind
To wrap in words unavailable
Only perception will warn
In ways so subtle
A second glance becomes
Change in direction
To where it is we are going.
via Daily Prompt: Second Thoughts
Don’t leave me hanging;
For your next best thing;
I will not wait as my wrinkles deepen;
You choose not to slow down;
As the voices bleed into the one;
Much to my dismay;
You will never wait for me;
Loyalty a thing long passed;
Love being the only truth on solid ground;
In this dream of a world we call home.
I am always trying to think of the next step. Especially with my life, I often wonder if people think the same way that I do.
I was born before a PC was as common in a home as a TV. I was elated as well as extremely curious when we got a TV with a remote and cable I was ten. So I seriously struggle ‘keeping up’ with this constantly manipulated technological environment that we seem to have created for ourselves now.
It is hard to commit to the next step for me, this world we now live in seems to be full of people who lack impulse control, so you are never really sure where you stand. What is even worse it is okay! I can feel like a million bucks and then turn on my computer and in a matter of seconds, I am over the hill, I have a disease, and I feel the need to psychologically re-evaluate all my relationships.
How do I teach my daughter that the things outside of her aren’t as important as her self esteem and self worth? It scares me and yet I welcome the challenge with love and deep commitment. I am a Jellyfish or a Helicopter Parent either way, my daughter, like my son, will know that loving oneself first is the most important thing when it comes to taking another step in life. This is a tough lesson when faced with only a faint light a the end of any proverbial tunnel. Especially after repeatedly fulfilling the demands and needs of others before considering your own.
What it is I have to say;
To negate continuous flow.
A smell that fills our lungs
Sweet taste of plum and the wood of a pipe
Cigars rolled before our eyes
As the humidor keeps calm
Yin to our yang
Warm glass filled with cognac
Leather sofas, and a smoking jacket
Walls of cherry wood surround
All in baritone reflections
