What I Am

what it seems is that my dream
and life can never be a team

what i plot is what i'm not
and what i need, i haven't got

what i find inside my mind
are painful thoughts of every kind

what i see can never be
my tangible reality

what i hear will not appear
and make me all the while secure

what i drink, i like to think
will spray away my putrid stink

what i smoke, and being broke
won't free me from this awful joke

when i cry i know that i
will not feel joy before i die

what i am is not the man
who lived inside my perfect plan

what i know has yet to show
now i have nowhere else to go

when i'm gone you'll all go on
and ride your sunlight into dawn

The Maddening Shroud

It's kind of funny how I never cease to amaze myself...

Reaching far out for the seemingly unattainable
Underestimating myself time and time again
Never stopping to realize that I am just not right in this place

Depression, frustration, loneliness, repression...
Everything bad that one can expect in life
Everything but the good I still strive for
Pessimism, hopelessness, ignorance and isolation
Enter now through the gates of my existance
Real or fake? True or false? Good or bad?

These lines are blurred many times over
Has the world decided to play a universal prank on me?
Are the steady laughs intentionally dispensed in my direction...
Never allowing me an inside glimpse at the punchline?

You say that Karma is a universal constant
Our little way of justifying the randomness we all unknowingly share
Unforgiving energy from the Heavens, cloaked in benevolence

Keep to the true and sincere path
No cheating allowed; you must not stray
Or you will pay a handsome price
Why must existance be so difficult?

The Holiday Spirit

Everyone I know loves the holiday spirit. When the annual gift-shopping season rolls around each November, people suddenly become nicer to each other; more appreciative and friendly. They feel more willing to reach out a hand to those in need; more willing to shower those around them with gifts and feasts and love. There is a different air around us in those times. And we all love it.

So I can't help but wonder...

Why don't we all just do that year-round?

Random Thought Of The Day

Explaining the sensation of achieving that perfect high after a couple drags off the ol' pipe to someone who has never smoked, is much like trying to describe color to a blind person.

Mix CD #22

Well it's finally that time again! With all the crap going on lately, not to mention the absence of my computer for two months, it has been some time since I made my last compilation. Since then, I have discovered more great stuff from many different genres. In this time, I have also created a new goal for myself. I am going to read my Rolling Stone Encyclopedia Of Rock & Roll. Front to back. It was given to me a couple months or so ago by a friend down at my favorite bar. (He bought a newer version recently and gave this one to me.) Very cool guy!

So yes, I will read this entire bastard now, 'A' to 'Z'. It just may take me awhile... And I completely look forward to discovering many more obscure artists within it's pages (All 1100-plus of them). So far, I have only made it to the Bell Biv DeVoe entry. So much to read, so much to learn. It's going to be a very interesting journey!

In the meantime, I will be enjoying my new mix. It goes a little something like this:

  • "Real Gone" - Sheryl Crow
  • "Too Hot" - Coolio
  • "Rock With You" - Michael Jackson
  • "Hoes In My Room" - Ludacris & Snoop Dogg
  • "Carolina In My Mind" - James Taylor
  • "Break My Stride" - Matthew Wilder
  • "Just One Of Those Things (Brazilian Girls Remix)" - Blossom Dearie
  • "The Hustle" - Van McCoy
  • "In The Morning" - Kelis
  • "Stormy" - The Classics IV
  • "September" - Earth, Wind & Fire
  • "Sexuality" - K.D. Lang
  • "I Heard A Rumor" - Bananarama
  • "Video" - India Arie
  • "Part Time Lover" - Stevie Wonder
  • "Here We Go (Again)" - Portrait
  • "Everything You Want" - Vertical Horizon
  • "Give It To You" - Jordan Knight
  • "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" - Marvin Gaye
