Why can we not just have peace?

In this war ravaged planet Most people just want to be peaceful To get on with their lives, go to work, pay their bills Maybe watch a game, drink a beer with a friend, hug their family   They didn't ask for this, we don't want this The world is torn, society is stretched to... Continue Reading →

Let the healing begin

Sometimes you have to write in order to find the lies The things that you believed to be true For when they fall on the paper  They are so clearly false That the letting go becomes easier  And you can finally begin to move on Let the healing begin Sometimes we share, sometimes we don't,...

I am tired Tired of seeing people I care about die Losing the fight to a stupid, evil disease Tired of running from feeling Tired from feeling too much Tired of not knowing the future Tired of caring Tired of not caring Tired of confusion Am I just tired?

Jim

What do you want from life?

What do you want from life? That great question that seems so important, we are forever asking it of ourselves & of others, just as they ask it from us. It also begs the question, what are you willing to want? You see it’s no use to call a fantasy a dream. If you’re not... Continue Reading →
