Thoughts and Feelings

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Thoughts of hope and disillusion lead to clarity and to confusion. Feelings of clarity and confusion lead to hope for some solution.

To an Unsung Future

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Let me write your name upon the sky So that everyone may remember you. Let me write your name upon the salt So you may season all our daily fare.

Before my birth, this birth, though perhaps There was a time when I and all could hear them. Maybe only one could not hear and determined that if he could […]

Neither Nor

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Although I seek reflection I am subject to refraction. Though I attempt detection I am driven by distraction. Neither drink nor election allay or alter its attraction. As delay sees my dejection Faltering through inaction. Mired in mental inspection Causes me dissatisfaction. Who wants my disaffection Can life […]

What We Think We Held

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ It took nearly as long for sunlight to reach your eye As it did for George Floyd to be murdered and die. Even these words you read are already in the past, although it may be, a mere nanosecond has passed. Still, a year ago or five minutes […]
