A Rant.

A facebook friend recently posted his thoughts about the work ethic of kids today. It was a respectable post, and his ideas were sound.  Where did we go wrong as a country?

The Clock Inches

For the second day in a row, I've given in just the tiniest bit to the underbelly of poetry. This was a piece I had written a while back. I cleaned it up (it needed it terribly), and now post it here for whomever would take part in its enjoyment. It's an uptempo, wordy diatribe …

Pry your eyes from light, and suddenly the darkness seems not so black.

It's rarely the things you have done in your life- when perspective forces your mind to to venture down the path of regrets and malices- that causes regret; more often than not, it's the things you haven't accomplished that you always thought you would, or dreamed you could, that will give way to the demon …
