Missing You

Constantly thinking of you

Can’t get you off my mind

You’re like flies to fly paper

Always there, sticking behind

It’s a rooted comfort, knowing you’re still there

Like having a safety net, a place to fall when danger is in the air

My fire blanket to a smoldering fire

My escape plan to an inescapable prison

I’ll always fall back on the thought of you

Today, tomorrow, yesterday too

Coming Home

Image result for I'm Coming Home

Coming home today
I saw a sign on the freeway
It said you’re leaving your dreams behind
Back to the countryside
Where the green grass grows
Ain’t no worries
Time is nice and slow

We don’t need no high rise
No escalators or suites
We’ve got our front-looking porch
And a grand view of the sea

A poisonous doubt

A toxic sludge

These toxic second thoughts

That suck the life out of your vision

Putting up a roadblock

To happiness and glory

Decision 2016

It all comes down to this
The final ballot will be cast
Who will come out victorious?
Who will shine at last?
The fight has been intense
It has been memorable
Nothing short of historic
And when the smoke clears
And the name is called
The future of America hangs
In the balance
On the shoulders of one body
Brave and strong enough
To move us forward
And create the future of tomorrow
Putting dreams to work
And work into action
Promising promises that are
Anything but guarantee
But at least trying to believe
Trying to believe
That something always awaits
On the eternal sunset horizon

Food for Thought


Food is the heart of the earth
Feeding us, nourishing us
The will of a champion

Happy Halloween


What a great Halloween it was today (sarcasm).

I like Halloween but I personally think it is one of the cheesiest and overhyped holidays ever. There’s no other day of the year where people volunteer to walk around in funny masks or costumes meticulously made out of household items. Halloween was such a fun holiday when I was in elementary school but after I got older it started to become less important; less about the all the cavity inducing candy received and more about celebrating this great time of the year that is about transitions.


This year I bought a pumpkin and only penned in the outline of the Michigan block ‘M’, too lazy to gut out the nasty innards of the gourd, realizing it is such a waste of time as the pumpkin is no good afterward.


The 1988 cult classic Pumpkinhead was watched again this year, as is a tradition that started a few years back. In order to watch the film this year, I had to order it online because it is virtually unavailable anywhere in stores and only freely available through shady bootleg sites. The film is nothing special and has one of the most ridiculous plotlines (summoning the monster just because a boy gets accidentally run over by a motorcycle) but it’s the uniqueness and artistic value of the film that makes it a favorite among underground fans on Halloween.

The original poem that inspired the film:

“Keep away from Pumpkinhead,
Unless you’re tired of living,
His enemies are mostly dead,
He’s mean and unforgiving,
Laugh at him and you’re undone,
But in some dreadful fashion,
Vengeance, he considers fun,
And plans it with a passion,
Time will not erase or blot,
A plot that he has brewing,
It’s when you think that he’s forgot,
He’ll conjure your undoing,
Bolted doors and windows barred,
Guard dogs prowling in the yard,
Won’t protect you in your bed,
Nothing will, from Pumpkinhead!”
