Today i am a clown of words. Life is too serious so in my writing of poetry and other works i like injecting it with a pinch of humor. I color outside the box and cross the line that others try to restrict me to. If i can bring on one laugh or a smile I have done my job!
I try to write modern day poetry with the understanding of today with simplistic terms and words. My poetry is like a short story set to verse. Let me transport you back into a Déjà vu of memories good and bad alike.
So upon my fathers passing i avowed to write 1000 poems before i draw my last breath. To share with others my thoughts though sometimes twisted and skewed. Most importantly a since of freedom to be now what I should have been then, a clown of words.
The only reward I seek through my writings is to create a smile upon your face and to wash away your cloudy days.
So please join me on my journey of a promise made to him and myself to be more without restrictions placed upon us by society.
Feel free to be positive about my writings and if you feel the need to be negative do what i do when i take a poop, flush the unwanted paper down the drain.
When did you first start writing?
about 30 years ago but life got busy and onto the back burner it went.
What's the story behind your latest book?
my latest book (a taste of my thoughts Volume 1) is the beginning on my first step to my path of a 1000 poems that i decided to write after my dad passed away. he wrote music and he too was restricted by life not getting the chance to share his work. always wanting to be a comedian young in life i have always found humor in all I see and do. i see the smiles and laughter comedians bring into this world so in my own way this is my contribution to brighten the world just a little bit more than when we woke up this morning.
If you live you have been the victim of an old persons F bomb. It will be the politest insult you will ever know. They tell you to take a moment and take a deep breath and calm down but i am telling you to hold your breath and run. Making an old person upset just brings on the self defense mode of more gas so just forgive and try to forget.
The true fact of life is that we all know someone with a rotted brain from delight. Once the brain is burnt the trip is a one way only. So tilt your hat for those you know because they no longer remember you.
Within a life so busy some of us are controlled by what some call a deficit while I call it a strength. Anything can be an excuse if failure is what you seek. I prefer to use my A.D.D. as an advantage where others can not understand because they can not walk in my shoes. For those that do walk in my shoes I want them to know there is more versus less when others tell you to focus.
We all dream of Friday Usually on Monday. But as we are dragged through the week closer towards Friday our dreams grow tenfold. I think some only survive each day just for Friday. Enjoy the weeks travel to the the Friday seed.
We are all plagued with problems which become our cross to bare. Differences are if you accept it as an excuse or decide to rule it. I find in poetry I can write a shorter story in verse to conquer what I consider one curse. In turn it also solved the problem of A.D.D. where focus is lost from a moment or forever.
Unfortunately a large percentage of us will be the one that gives or the one that receives. A thousand possibilities for this crippling disease but the one truth is that it robs you of what makes you. Enjoy.
From youth with a sharp mind we all will travel the road of age landing in a place no longer known. There your mind will drift in and out savoring the past like it was yesterday. Short term memory is only for the young and the gifted. Please enjoy before you drift away again.
This poem is just the simple reality of our products in America. Once we would strive for quality then corporate greed substituted the imported toys which break before they are used in some cases. We have lost our way of quality but this poem will give you hope and point you in the right direction.
In the reality of today you will spend a large part of your time sitting in road construction. Often I wonder why it takes more workers to watch one guy work. If this worker can't be trusted why not fire him. Since this year seems to be the year of protesting maybe we should protest road construction. Protesting this might actually make a difference in our daily life. Enjoy the frustration
By the stupidity of the few the wicked will now be released upon our children. For every occurrence their excuse will be they are transgender. We are opening Pandora's box to all perverts with the excuse of being transgender with no way of denying their claim. They can claim they woke up today to realize in that moment they were transgender. So let's sacrifice all for the few when we have ways to
Today, yesterday and our tomorrows seem to lack equality between black and white persons. I talk to many people of many races and they seem to all say the same thing, I hold no grudges against my fellow man. So if it is not the people then I ask who is holding us all down? Why in the year 2017 are we behind other nations when it comes to racial equality? We live together, eat together etc...
Often we examine our brains as we interact with others that have skewed thoughts. Our brains seem to be infected by society, family, friends and other outside influences that are on the constant attack on our sanity. Please enjoy such an attack!
We have all been there and done that! I just felt the need to express my thoughts so just maybe one day the inventor of toilet paper will get it right. I don't ask much from this world but a clean hand would prevent the spread of disease. knowing the world has been infected by stank hands maybe they should include a box of biodegradable gloves that dissolve on contact with water.
Another thought brought on by words in conversations that left me guessing their true meaning. Often in our current times we have shortened words, added to their meanings and just flat out abused their original intent. Please enjoy as i twist a few for your pleasure.
Merry Christmas to all and enjoy all the gifts that Santa has brought you including all the Christmas puppies. You will be able to relate to each part of this poem as we all seem to travel this road in life. Please enjoy!
In life we all stumble but man always seems to stand tall when all the clouds clear. Emotional stumbles seem to be the worst like the soul being invisible what we can't touch we find hard to heal. Hopefully this poem will bring insight and clarity. please enjoy!
Often in life family's are separated by distance, differences and sometime just the lack of effort. I think this poem just about covers the topic. This poem is just an effort to help all of us to look a little deeper within ourselves. Enjoy!
A poem that every father can relate to coming full circle. Before you know it time has slipped by and your daughter is grown and gone. Time is an elusive creature which you can never get back. Maybe in the next life another opportunity will present itself with a different outcome. Enjoy!
Another brief poem set into our environment we live and Unfortunately breath. There is always danger looming around every corner as well as the simple joy of laughter that ensues shortly there after. Please enjoy as you reflect into your honest memories.
A poem written from seeing yourself within your child from birth to adulthood. Often they image us exactly in the good and bad that make us unique. Take a moment when you see your child to reflect on your own childhood memories, then give them a big hug so they survive it. Enjoy!
A poetic thought on Veterans day for all those that have sacrificed. Serving our country is more than self. The flag stands for more than just freedom and should be respected not being tossed around and burned by those that aren't willing to do and to give beyond self. Please enjoy and happy Veterans day!
A poem about society's common place. We are often in too big of a hurry waiting for time to cure what ill's us so we just pop a pill or two. Pills are becoming common place and addiction to these quick fixes are also becoming common place. enjoy!
