Actions vs. Words
The actions of a man wither; the words of a man linger.
All walk was once talk, only to begin talking the talk again in old age.
’Tis harder to kill the message delivered by the messenger than to kill the messenger.
You are sure to fail with every cast when you spell your words too fast.
Share the words of dead good men the scarcer good men become so they live on.
Our actions eventually die with those we helped;
our words circulate the world over like currency.
Words are the only real, most powerful magic in our possession.
That is why spelling is called 'spelling' because words cast spells.
Actions wither to dusky death; words linger and are immortalized within
the reminiscence of The People that dwell in the immediate files of time.
Wise words motivate wise actions; foolish words encourage foolish actions.
The right actions bring about fresher thoughts that propose better actions;
the wrong actions provoke shrewish words that suggest smarter decisions.
To talk the talk is the walk of philosophers; to walk the walk is the talk of business men.
Money leaves the pockets of all dead men, and the fight to keep walking the walk retires
to old age like the atrophy of old jokes, so while we get lost in all our actions for awhile,
wise words are pocketed into the minds of The People and never diminish with the ages.
Affect and be the good effect
Those who say they are not affected by anything
not only lie, but cannot possibly have an effect
on anyone else nor give inspiration or motivation.
Good affect is the best currency on this troubled world
where the effect proliferates from one person to another.
How you affect determines the intent of your character,
that which often determines the effect on other people.
Inconsistent, negative people receive negative results every time.
Pure, concentrated cinnamon is a natural enemy against elevated sugar levels.
The more lines in someone's face, the more they frowned throughout their life.
A garlic clove every other day cleanses the blood, relaxes its vessels and increases its flow.
Clean the face with gentle rubs in circular motion with a soft cloth.
A forceful cleaning chafes one’s face of its youth quicker over time.
Unless it is hereditary, never wait until you have a health problem to fix an avoidable problem.
Take necessary steps, notably when you’re young, to lessen the chance of a problem happening.
Taking a pill for every ill or a drug for every bug does not solve the problem;
it’ll only get you to the next stop until you finally do come to a terminal stop…
Drink 6 eight-ounce glasses of water per day, because 2+ ounces of water
comes from other liquids you drink, anyway, yet they never emphasize that.
If 1 cup is not enough, 1 eight-ounce glasses of prune juice
every 4 hours will often flush the bowels in a day or three.
Even too much of ‘every day’ is a bad thing over time when dieting or exercising,
so diet every other day (1 day for rest), and exercise every 2 days (2 days for rest).
For short-sleeved shirts, sneeze into the armpit so nothing is spread to others;
for long-sleeved shirts, sneeze into the crease between the forearm and bicep.
And so it goes what works for one person may not work for another;
what helps one person may worsen a particular condition for another.
What we want is often not what our body wants. Therefore, if we all want to
stick around for a while, it is wise to listen to our bodies, not our taste buds.
The best age products anyone can ever buy are the right foods,
yet anxious anticipation begets a lack of persistency by habit,
that which is often why the right foods seemingly do not work.
When in doubt and all hope is lost in the face of cancer, drink pure carrot juice
3 times per day for 4 months. I saw it clear my uncle’s stage 4 colon cancer up,
so perhaps it will help one of you, too. What you got to lose? Give it a chance!
Simply raking, picking up leaves, walking, pulling out the garden’s weeds
and pruning the plants — summer and fall-flowering trees and shrubs in the
dormant seasons (late winter / early spring), and spring-flowering trees and
shrubs soon after their flowers wilt — are the cheapest, 4 best medicines.
Unless you want to have a pharmacy in your house (look at your grandparents), or unless
you have a limb hanging by its tendons and veins, go to and listen to a doctor! Otherwise,
find other solutions [there are many around if you just look] for keeping yourself afloat,
and do not expect the solution to your problem(s) to work overnight, because it never will!
Raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with the ‘Mother’ is the best Apple Cider Vinegar to use
for home remedies. When taken orally, use a straw and brush the teeth afterward to prevent the
erosion of tooth enamel, and if on blood thinners, avoiding using Apple Cider Vinegar entirely.
Pour 1 part raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar [whatever brand you choose]
and 1 part water into a squirt bottle. Spray your produce, let sit for 5 minutes,
and then rinse it to get rid of bacteria and/or the residue of pesticide chemicals.
Mix 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey
(optional for taste) in an 8-ounce glass of warm water and drink in the morning once
every other day to normalize pH levels in the body at 7.0 — the higher the pH number,
the more alkalotic the body is; the lower the pH number, the more acidic the body is —
to help keep your blood pressure low, to improve nutrient absorption, to protect against
arterial damage and oxidation (the main risk of high cholesterol), to alleviate heartburn
and the upchuck of acid reflux, and to alleviate and do many other things for the body.
Soaking the feet in 3 cups of Apple Cider Vinegar to a basin of warm water
filled halfway for 30 minutes 2-3 times per day for 1 week (depending on the
severity) softens callous feet to a sheen, helps relieve foot pain and kills any
foot fungi. Just be sure to have a washcloth handy to clean and soften the feet.
For razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae), bug bites and itches, moisten a
cotton ball in regular Apple Cider Vinegar and apply it directly to the skin.
Combine and mix equal parts of Apple Cider Vinegar,
lemon and extra-virgin oil to make a healthy dressing
when trying to avoid salad dressings loaded with sugar.
To clear up spider veins (telangiectasia) and to relieve the pain of varicose veins,
drench a cloth in raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar and massage the veins daily
upward toward the heart with the topical solution in the morning and then at night
in conjunction with wearing compression stockings until your condition clears up.
Soaking the body in 2-3 cups of Apple Cider Vinegar
to a bathtub of warm water prevents yeast infections.
Intoxicated marionettes are servile to caustic influence.
Almost everybody wants answers, that is to say, so long they are the ones
they will except, which are all subjective, even if those answers are wrong.
Insult is shorthand for lack of a better argument.
There is much truth told in anger when the same insults are brought up every new argument.
You are a fool when arguing with who you think is a fool,
twice a fool for arguing with who you thought was a fool.
Any combinable string of words can form opinions
all they want, yet what most consider rightfully so
is at least 50% bogus; the other 50% will conquer
another man’s viewpoint or that of older thinking.
If nothing is truly right or wrong because thinking makes it seem so,
then things can only be right or wrong when we know them to be so.
Otherwise, what is the value of knowing if nothing is just or unjust?
Is merely thinking things right or wrong not susceptible to fallibility?
Whether or not we agree with or disagree with something,
if consideration is entertained, or if feelings are provoked,
there must, at the very least, be some form of truth in it.
Those who do for another person and then throw it up in their face during argument prove they
do for others because they expect things in return, even when what given was never asked for.
Utilizing your seemingly good deeds for another as leverage
in argument is worse than any name you can call that person.
If all you can do in argument is curse somebody, then you are at fault!
If that's not true, why then, do you often find a better reply so difficult?
When you begin to assault with an insult, you already lost the argument by default.
Trying to make sense to those who cannot make sense of any sense
is like going on an underwater excavation for history with a lit match;
you cannot expect any other outcome to happen except the inevitable.
If all you do in debate is quibble, your argument becomes drivel.
Assumptions are merely illusions with forced adumbration.
At the Door
There is a tall door to the wise for counsel:
When help is sought in silence it is opened;
when help is sought in person it is closed.
Often these guests shy to knock, walk away.
Bad moods often bring about indifference where nobody and not one thing means
anything to us in that very moment, including but not limited to, the term ‘friend’.
So many things to be. So little time to be.
The sooner one values their brief time here, one becomes all they are meant to be.
Counterintuitively, you are louder when you tiptoe than if you just walk slow,
louder when you run the faucet on low than if you just run it at a normal flow.
The floors sound like an old creaky ship; the faucet like a broken fire hydrant.
Be vs. Believe
When you remove the barrier of lieve in the way of be,
you can then advance to become what you want to be.
Why strive to be #1, #2, #3 or within the top 5 or within the top 10 best?
Be the outsider, the 11th best, beyond the top ten, leading the preceding 1.
Blindness // Misconceptions // Ignorance
There is no sense making sense to those who cannot make sense of sense, be it common or not.
Many premonitions cast shadows of many doubted events later accompanied
by the existence of truth inhabiting the heavier foreheads of smartened fools.
When you speak the same nonsense like fools do,
all the world's fools will become friends with you.
Trying to change stubborn minds is like trying to counterfeit pennies;
it is so pointless and worthless. That is why if people want to change
their minds, they will, and when people want to change the way they
think about all the things you did and all the things you said, they do.
In a world operating from caustic silliness,
misplaced thinking takes its perilous steps.
Ignorance is when someone never sees beyond the pinhole in a piece of paper
because they're too busy looking at the pinhole instead of through the pinhole,
and as a result, everything outside the pinhole is exactly as their mind is: blank.
You’ll wĭzen down if you don’t wīsen up.
My idiocy is the need to make sense to people:
I tell the world short stories forsaken to wear,
and give the world messages escaping the ear.
“O’ well” goes well for only a little while
until “O’ well” goes to Hell, asphyxiated
by all the smoke enlightenment gives off
when ignorance is absolved of its defects,
toe-to-toe with understanding far too late.
“O’ well goes well” societies get nowhere.
“I can do anything!” and “I can do what I want!”
always confuse and contradict each other, daily.
“I can do anything!” is an adrenaline-charged
chant to drive one’s creative visions forward.
“I can do what I want!” is destructive willfulness,
that indisposed example many dress in to flaunt.
“Because I can!” is the sum of all ignorance and
never got very far. It is often half-empty reason;
what remains in the other half is angry nonsense.
“I kill people because I can!” among other things,
jailed, worse, execution or mental punishment.
The door to insight is open, yet blind reason is a scowling songbird in a cage
that always seems to digress from confronting greater truths beyond its own.
In thinking, saying or doing otherwise when resistant to truth
with an iron will and an iron tongue, they are later melted by
reconsideration through deep introspection.
Pride can slay a man; it did my Grandfather.
Oftentimes it's best to accept than to resist,
to admit than to oppose indisputable advice,
to yield our defiant pride to a helping hand.
All common sense was controversial once,
yet to this day it is amazingly still that way,
and all new sense will also be controversial
until people get it hundreds of years later,
and by then, all authors and artists are half-
dead or in their already-deceased condition.
They were told the do nots numerous times;
now let them show you what will come next.
The act of extenuation through trifling, at-random joking
is deliberate carelessness, the rudest form of interruption
with the intent to insult every talked-about serious matter.
Applaud! for Man to take from this and continue doing it.
The secret to escape all inquiries is always kowtow to,
always agree with and surrender your stance to others;
but what man so foolish to abandon what he holds true
unless what held true shares commonality with another?
Too many! that is why all the stupid listen to the stupid,
and why few men, rational enough to place a moral bet.
Those who live by the gun regret with the bullet,
arguably, depending on who is killed. Even then...
Aesthetic physical alteration attracts gradual regrets.
Books vs. Poetry vs. Short Stories
Quality literature comes from writing like you are trying to bring
about a few more words before your last breath leaves your lips.
The scent of an old or a new book is the ambrosia of wisdom and knowledge for the brain.
Wordsmithing a real powerful poem is a lot like blacksmithing a really fine sword;
the more you work at it, the sharper it becomes to sunder the atmosphere into an eye
halfway across the world, and the finer its point becomes to pierce countless minds.
Reading and writing without the right song or without the
right instrumental atmosphere is mere lifeless mute say.
If you want to write great books, say so much in so much, not so little in so much.
If you want to write great poetry, say so much in so little, not so little in so much.
Want to write great short works? Write the long short, and say so much so briefly.
Suspense is just a teaser time waster for the sake of entertainment
full of silly fillers to extend the distance between beginning and end.
In amateur hands, poetry is the shorthand to learning. In good hands,
poetry is the shorthand to understanding. In great hands, poetry is the
shorthand to genius. Everything else much more voluble, that is to say,
books, will produce the same learning experience, understanding and
genius whether you are reading or writing them, but it will often take
a longer time, and life is too brief, that which is the very reason why
I prefer fewer words when I read and write poetry and short stories.
Books are hungry for time and say, "If I can just have 300+ pages of your time, that'd be great!"
Poems and short-stories are more considerate and ask, "May I have a moment with your time?"
Books have no mercy on time.
If I'm not writing, I'm not living, and when I'm not living I'm dead,
so when my words subside and I am gone, let this be proof I lived.
Business // Work
When two parties in a business disagree kindlier and marry certain perspectives,
more work gets done, and newer innovations become realities faster than before.
Some co-workers are like family, and working with them is tough, for you know you’ll grow
attached no matter how hard you try not to, and then when they leave, part of yourself is lost.
One who exhausts their energy on avoiding work is nothing more than a scobblelotcher.
Changing the World // Changing People's Mind
We must lead as one, not follow the lead of one man or the lead of only a few great men.
Things can be much better: all nobodies can be somebody if only everybody got together
to make a sweeping difference who beats every living and dead leader or famous person
anyone ever thought made a difference on this troubled world.
The day The People take to the podium while their leaders sit down among the empty seats
where the audience otherwise sits is when leaders will remember they are The People, too,
and only then the world will change for The People.
When someone shows you who they are the first time, never believe them.
When someone shows you who they are the second time, think about it.
When someone shows you who they really are the third time, believe them.
Circle of thought, all things within It, Eternity beyond it
but to bring the two extremes at each end of your string of thought together as one to form
a circle, so when you focus looking within your circle of thought, you can behold the world
and all things out beyond you encompass within it; and whenever you want your thinking
to transcend the very boundaries of your circle of thought, look beyond it and you will see
even a circle has end to its seemingly infinite expansion, for Infinity is just Finity infinitely
being finite with the lips of an ending never coming to a fixed END, and beyond all forms
of infinite expansion expanding is Eternity that is the Omniverse between every universe.
Comedy // Humor
There is overcoming problems, and then there is overcombing problems.
The scarcer good men become, we will have to dig up all the dead ones to aid this world again.
You know somebody's happy when they're perched like a bird on a chair.
Laughter for no explainable reason beats every joke anyone can invent.
Not all wise comedians are merely funny for the sake of entertainment;
they also use their stage access to inform and should be taken seriously.
The state birds of Florida are the gnat and the mosquito.
If you drink during eulogies you’re a better poet than me.
The best joke you can tell is say, "Hey, I got a joke!" and then
laugh and not tell the joke at all, because laughter is the joke.
Complexity vs. Simplicity
To those who abhor the thought of simplicity in writing,
there are four phases of simplicity: really dumb, simple,
too simple, and complex-simple. Complex-simple is the
key that fits the door to understanding this technique in
writing and can only be mastered through the evolution
of our phraseology. To be simple or complex? Combine
and be both complex and simple, not one over the other.
Creative Drive // Aptitude // Visions // Ideas
Fantasies born were private realities; realities formed are public fantasies.
The great dilemma of any brilliant mind is living among people who cannot understand.
In our art and our written words, we pour our souls into everything we do for a world full of half-theres.
When creativity gains a viewing or a hearing, it is very often equivalent to gaining
the world and losing all soul where the work of an artist and writer begins to wane.
What beautiful things we create wrapped away
in the tragedy of forsakenness we can only hope
will one day be discovered and truly understood.
Imagination is not imagination; it is merely a concept by which we measure our reality.
Sometimes daily thoughts are words we never had time to make poetry.
The fewer unsaid phrases become, it will no longer be who says it first, but who says it best.
True artists and writers are Intellectual Olympians
overcoming more gargantuan hurdles and trials
than the physically athletic know. We are not idle!
When somebody's hand begins to brush across their lips in that moment
they weigh your ideas or words, that is almost always how you can tell
they do not think what you are talking about is wise or interesting at all.
Too many people adored my visual artwork, so I made the switch to the written word where
the feedback was less pretentious, and I have to say, it is the best change I made in my life.
Those who never gave their all are more forsaken than life forsakes a rotting corpse.
When you are not expecting a big crowd, your intellectual property will find many people when
meant to be, and when that happens, be prepared: prepare to be profoundly hated, prepare to be
punctually scrutinized, and worse, prepare for your work to be compared to religion/a movement
many will disagree with if ever you gain favor by the millions or the billions. More importantly,
never be afraid of nor be made indisposed by the pismires of judgment and vindictive cynicism,
and always laugh any way you can at jealous rage full of slanderous remarks and quibble drivel.
Imagination is greater than knowledge because knowledge has end to what you can know,
but belief is greater than imagination because you have to believe for anything to become,
including what can become of yourself and the world around you as a result of your belief.
Within many wise men and logicians is a disappointed optimist whose dignity and keen
insight is concealed within insouciant smiles and disguised in the madness of ignorance.
I promise you nothing is more detrimental to someone else's imagination than the
stagnating thought that suggests, "Everything must be realistic as much possible!"
Artwork without words dresses in suspense; literature without illustrations is a mystery.
Literature is the tongue, the guts, and the sinews of artwork that moves and speaks for it.
Artwork is the skeleton, the flesh, and the makeup of literature that forms its expressions.
Literature and art says a passionate farewell to their masters after the moods within their souls
and the voices within their mind's lips coagulate in their hand and materialize against the paper.
The problem with these words is they have no eyebrows to express their message;
the problem with visual art is its mouth does not move to say one word to viewers.
Whenever the future's flame is low, it is our task to light it up again with the spark in our minds.
Literalities in excess kill the possibilities // Too much literality kills the possibility.
I let my intellectual works find people when meant to be, not through acts of desperation
or beggary. Why undergo that trouble? More renowned are the underrated, quieter writers
and artists found among the uttermost files of time, and I am quiet, much like these words.
The result of no longer giving purpose to something you gave
purpose to is all due to new thinking overwriting old thinking
be it toward objects, other people or our intellectual property.
To illustrate or say so much in so little, not so little in so much, is the only way to
make all the bridges we build shorter between our viewpoint to another viewpoint.
Undo the sutures over your eyes, and loosen the sutures in your tongue against the cheek.
Now is your most beautiful moment: see it, write it, say it or do it lest never able to again.
'Tis better to burn out (y)our imagination than it is to fade away.
What has not been invented today awaits a future thinker.
Thinking too much will make your muse sick.
Some people have said to me I look lost when I am merely in a state of deep thought,
even as they walk away, looking to the ground, thinking about what's got them troubled.
Treatment should never pursue pills to dull madness,
but seek balance reserving vital emotions heartfelt
and experiences by alleviating destructive extremes.
What we hoard in our minds remains fantasy;
what escapes our minds develops into reality
no matter if deemed complete B.S. or fictional.
What-could-be-fantasies come true, anyway,
when brought to real life through inventions,
the scriptures, plays, pictures, theatrical acts,
more imminent, Man's self-fulfilling prophecies.
It is best we pay our ideas and voices forward
than hoard them like excess stockpiles of food,
spoiling when never eaten, brilliance lost when
weakened by much thinking overwriting thinking.
Never be self-acclaimed; let others do it for you!
When related to something or someone flattering
do not resist it, accept it, and be humble about it.
Smarter, admit you are yourself and nobody else.
Be apropos and concise minus magniloquence!
Common minds never pardon those who aren't,
yet just one step down, a fatal fall for a genius.
All the things unsaid come to sleep with me in bed,
and when I wake, there they are escaping my head.
When you make it obvious you are desperate to make a name for yourself,
very few people will want to remember your name and what you stand for.
Criticism vs. Praise
If you really want it, pretend arrogance and you will receive a plethora of criticism and a paucity of praise.
Better to condemn without a reasonable doubt than to abominate with misplaced assumptions.
If you really want criticism (even if there is nothing wrong with what you said or did),
pretend to be arrogant (even if you are not) and you will get plenty of it that would
otherwise not be said. And if you want praise (even if there is something wrong with
what you said or did), be humble and you will get plenty of it, otherwise turns to hate.
Death // Immortality
If everybody was made immortal where even God said, "What a minute, guys!"
an eternally young population would eventually outnumber the grains of sand,
every insect and animal (dead or alive) within, on top or soaring above the land.
No wonder The Orchestrator made it in Nature's nature for us to die like flies.
Share the words of dead good men the scarcer good men become; it is the only way their messages live on.
Not even death itself is the worst thing that can happen to us.
The only worst thing that can ever happen to us is living a life
not worth recounting at all, because then you really are dead.
Not all the legends are dead, and not all of the dead were legends.
Only some legends are dead; only some of the dead were legends.
It almost always happens after the death of us...
Sad truth be told, the greatest poems call for adversity and/or the death of loved ones.
O' dusky death, if ever I'm bored and devoid in mind, help me remember my
mortality to motivate and invoke inspiration in me to bring about fresh ideas.
Reaching out for those closest to me I can never have another moment
with nor ever see again is what keeps me going and keeps me writing.
Many of those who are ambitious toward great visions live long enough to achieve their visions,
then they die not too long after that. There are some days I do not want to achieve my visions
because that is how many of us who ever entertained a vision departs this world when we do.
When good men and women become popular and expose the corruptions throughout this world,
those men and women are killed lest those with bad intent get caught, thrown into civic slander.
Ingenious, strange, quite intriguing and somehow... beautiful are the many vain worlds
in ruin I’ve visited in the many minds of dead unknown individuals throughout the ages.
Until we've paid our debt(s) through certain death,
people never listen to, revere, nor quote the living.
Instead, so long the horse still stands and can feel
the whiplashes of criticism and physical scrutiny,
people, more than not, will continue to assault us.
Just because one does things for people does not justify doing wrong to people.
Depression vs. Happiness
Depression is a choice. Transcend it. Happiness is a skill. Practice it.
Close your eyes to the sound of rain barraging your rooftop
and let all the dust in your mind of the past be washed away.
Destruction // Extinction
There is no such thing as bad news for the Earth,
even in the event of its demise. It will not weep.
There is only bad news for us, because the Earth
recycles itself and will someday take us all along
with its processes that go awhile and cease to be.
I liken the devil's voice to the electric guitar; it rocks and easily sways the world.
If you know otherwise, why be made bedraggled by misplaced
assumptions so often made by others toward your differences?
Just because differences often come at the price of being chewed by the pismires of judgement
does not mean anybody should change who they are, what they think or what they do. Unless
your differences bring about criminal or lethal actions where reevaluation should be considered,
what is there to really worry about?
The result of untrespassed thinking is the phobia of everyone assuming we have lost it,
or the fear we will be burned at the stake (metaphorically or certainly [has happened]),
but no matter if your thoughts prove false, even if your ideas or claims are said absurd,
trespass into untrespassed thinking, anyway, and expect nobody to believe you, ever.
Trade your vain desire(s) for the world to believe you for cynical listeners and viewers;
let them find out on their own accord and may they “whoa!” and admit you were right.
Diversity in the Eyes of an Artist
Doubt vs. Belief
First to believe you can, then to know you must, and finally you will.
When you doubt yourself someone else will make it happen.
Doubt in yourself is the self-fulfilling prophecy of failure.
Belief in yourself is the self-fulfilling prophecy of success.
Economy // Jobs
You try getting by to get ahead, yet you cannot get ahead by getting by
because getting by requires cutting in line, and then when you cut in line
your head gets smashed, or worse, chopped off. How do you get ahead?
Those who are crooked smash heads or take a few heads to get ahead;
those who are honest mend with and listen to other minds to get ahead.
Education is all about getting to know what is already known; that is why it is called knowledge,
yet knowledge will bring us to a finite point, and whosoever goes through that point knowledge
leads to becomes a visionary whose breakthroughs go beyond everything to kiss the impossible.
Water is a bottle of gold whose value is priceless.
Fire is the best cleanser for bad reminders and terrible memories you no longer want.
Sometimes I will purposely make grammar and spelling errors in my work so when
someone confronts me about it and says, "You made a spelling and grammar error
here and here." I can reply, "Thank you! That just means you are paying attention."
Equations are the meticulous words of fools; they arrive at limited facts with few answers
that fail to explain Eternity beyond the lips of the current end of our universes’ expansion.
Everyday People // Life // Vicarious Experiences
Our life is a dollar; we must spend every quarter wisely.
Always be hip until you R.I.P
Live like you are someone else's second chance at living to fulfill what you wanted to fulfill.
Do not grow old with your head in the palms of your hands wishing you
could have done more in life, because it does not have to be that way,
and you know this, yet you continue to only talk about it and do nothing.
If you can read this, you're already busy livin'.
That much is true, so what's there left to do?
It's not hard: Get busy tryin' or get busy dyin'!
There is much more to life than corporate labor, and when you begin disbelieving that fact
you will feel enslaved by it, then you become the Hell it gives you because you allow(ed) it.
All the world's full of Hornswogglers, and when they're not hornswoggling you,
they show off their big hornswoggler cup that is bigger than what is necessary.
Earth is Hell's nest carrying almost all the eggs of life.
Your mind has wings not from this world; go elsewhere.
It is foolish to live as though you'll die tomorrow; live as though you'll die any moment.
It makes getting your life's work done much more important before leaving this world.
While the Earth spins like a rotisserie chicken in the day’s sun,
I see many discouraged people wince behind uncertain smiles,
counting the headstones of their failures, revisiting each one;
and their purpose, their fight, and hard-pressed words subside
in that moment they covertly surrender to the world's imposing,
unwanted woes, and everything to them is nonsense for awhile.
Irate mouths are all talk and quite harmless; irate minds will act and are more dangerous.
Desiring the spotlight to be on one's vainglorious self
is a very lonely vision to entertain that will die with you.
Turn your ambitions to the future for everybody’s sake
and The People will immortalize you in their memories.
It is not always what’s going on in our life that concerns us;
oftentimes it is what goes on around our life that bothers us.
To every man's one hundred cents, take Life by the quarters.
No matter if rich or poor, you are only worth the dollar given
to you to live, or more if spent wisely minus all the nonsense.
Sometimes I do wonder... What are we doing looking out beyond for alien life? Those stars
are near empty; almost all the aliens are here on Earth, alienating each other’s viewpoints,
treating each other like aliens, and fighting against one another like aliens. We’re just alien
all day, every day, all year, every year, well into our recent past and our immediate future.
Why let a spec lead you into destructive extremes?
that which is Earth between your index and thumb,
a blue-green grain in the void housing petty troubles.
Release it from your fingertips, mind yourself into
the cosmos until the raging wars, mum squabbles,
and Earth’s size laughs you down (blurs and fades).
No one is so important to have the world figure them out;
the world is more important to set the focus on everyone.
Although it seems we never make it out alive,
new generations reincarnate old generations,
inheriting fragments of our ancestor’s talents;
on our behalf they are reborn and so are we.
That is my synopsis of scientific reincarnation.
Look through the hole to life not at the hole.
Stop neglecting; save your now!
Withdraw misplaced reasoning to not take life seriously.
If ever this whole world looks at life as a mere joke
the future will become overrun with hazardous clowns!
Vicarious involvement is not at all cowardice;
gather and learn from the hindsight in others,
then, without uncertainty, make your choice(s).
Cease assumptions and try to be kind to everyone;
you never know what inhabits another man’s body
be it good or bad, a celestial agent or raged demon.
In my vicarious experience, not occupation, hair-cutting is
like sculpting a statue’s crown except people never stay still.
It’s a good thing or business would be shot, much like this
poetry and prose without the world’s wars and corruptions,
and for this I could never bring myself to say, "Thank you."
A nihilist opinionated aloud is a nihilist existing.
A quiet nihilist is a futile nihilist afraid to exist.
I never have to think to know who I am or to know what I am
to prove my very existence; I have you to tell me, "You are."
Ifsoever that is not true, then why do you continue to tell me
who and what I am so as to constantly remind me I am here?
For me to be absolute nothing to you, stop saying, "You are!"
Exploitation // Government // New War(s)
To exploit Man; that is government.
If ever comes this already half-way-there future,
Man will not war over any ideologies or religions,
and Man will not war with sharp objects, missiles
of any kind, aerial units, ground units, handguns,
explosives or commonplace, silly verbal threats.
All lesser weapons will be put through shame by
much more devastating weapons like the sword
whose power surrendered to the gun, and with it,
stripped of its once-believed-in magical attributes,
all except its outshining beauty of glinting steel.
The time draws closer when Man will alternatively
war over and war with unsuspected and insidious
forms of control by genetic exploitation invading
(y)our privacy and inflicting invisible punishments
under everyone's nose of subconscious awareness.
To fail or to fail terribly? There is only one way to fail, and that is to fail, because to fail terribly is to be really bad at failing.
Fame is dangerous overachievement.
The greatest people who ever lived and are living today are the ones you never heard of before.
The difference between already-famous people and unheard people is the famous are fortunate.
If everybody agreed with or liked your work, then that most likely means you have done something terribly wrong somewhere,
whereas if everybody disagreed with or disliked your work, then that most likely means you have done something magnificent
only a world 100+ years after your death will understand and appreciate. Evidence of this can be found with many dead artists
and writers who were in their time underrated and/or greatly misinterpreted who are now widely considered to be the very best.
Fleeting wisdom and fleeting knowledge are the only two notorious cowards
that are feared when they run away from everybody at some time or other.
In that fixated moment we feel most wronged,
the faucet of ultimate fear arrests our beliefs
by overflowing the lip of an already-full glass.
A traumatized mind can be healed through practicing
a controlled psychogenic fugue, remembering nothing
of the world’s miasmatic phases.
Followers vs. Visitors
I like visitors, not followers. Visitors come and go; followers are always trying to invade your privacy.
I do not want followers, but if you do come along
leave me when I am in your impression of wrong!
Too many seek this world’s belief in their claims;
I seek the world’s hate and scrutiny to study mine
until proven otherwise with devastating evidence.
Forsaken Words // Forgotten Messages
These words may affect and effect you today,
but come tomorrow fresher outlook emerges,
through intercourse highs they are forgotten.
A new day anoints the scab of old reproach;
undressing yesterday’s gauze, nothing’s there.
Words without song are luminous muted bells
whose luster is always turned rusty inside, out,
and whose voice never sings to The People
until discovered years later after one's death.
Friendship // Friends Lost
When a close, good friend is lost, it's like walking in on a holocaust.
Err before the world and you are condemned.
Err before a true friend and you are excused.
When friendship ends inexplicably, it was never real from the very beginning,
because the person you thought a friend remained friendly to you long enough
to be entertained and listened to awhile; and then when their voids are filled,
or when the mouths of their ravenous voids open wider you can no longer fill,
they are quick to forsake your existence like a petty moth to a futilizing fire,
to which friendship atrophy begins to eat away at the heart like Cardionecrosis.
Friendship atrophy for no explainable reason feels like Cardionecrosis.
Misunderstanding and misinterpretation are formidable allies bigger than Earth
that are two powerful forces with the potential to crush this world's friendships.
The Future vs. Thereafter
The only thing beyond the future is thereafter because you were already there.
Genius is an ugly sweetheart; she is absolute madness disguised in beauty. When she is with me,
people think they are observing me when it is her, something about that way she makes me look.
She rings my doorbell at odd hours with ideas, and like a fetal-curled mistress teasing with hook
dressed in lingerie, she often runs and takes them all away, jealous of time with other company.
I may be a humble gentleman who exercises wise words that are seemingly persuasive,
who knows how to whoa! many people, and who knows when to apply proper etiquette,
but I'm no Prince of Darkness who only pretends the disposition of a humble gentleman.
(Y)our goal? What goal? Do not invest in goals
whose synonymy is with hope; let it get done!
God // the Ineffable // Heaven and Hell
Heaven, tantalus; Hell, easily walked into.
If any church, the real church is within the heart whose architect is God,
not some seemingly holy manmade building often crowded with cynics.
Infinity is just finity infinitely being finite with the lips of an ending never coming to a fixed END.
Infinity is continuation where Eternity is endless.
To whom it concerns, if God does not exist, why do you try so hard to press
your thoughts, your arguments and your hatred against God as if truly there?
Your disbelief is inconsistent; if God does not exist, it is foolish to go against
for the same reason it'd be foolish to rest your back against a wall not there.
God’s absence is no more the origin of all observable existence (t)here
on Earth and beyond than nothing(ness) is the very origin of existence.
If knowing God does not exist where you can never prove is knowing,
then believing God does exist where we cannot prove is also knowing.
There is the science of Man, and then there is the science of God.
God is a greater Mathematician whose blackboard is the cosmos.
God is Creator of Reality. Reality is the Father of Wisdom. Wisdom is the Mother
of Knowledge. Imagination is the hermaphrodite of Wisdom and observed Reality.
Many arguments and much talk about God prove the existence thereof.
Many claim they are certain God does not exist, yet they bring God up!
Everybody knows talking rocks do not exist, so no one brings them up!
Do you want to know the difference between talking rocks known not to
exist versus God all atheists believe does not exist? Uncertain atheists!
For if knowing God does not exist where you cannot prove is knowing,
then believing God does exist where we cannot prove is also knowing.
The universe is God's workshop, and all the cosmic materials within it are God's tools,
yet everyone is so blind because this world expects God's rawest form to be humanly
or that of inanimate matter when God's true form is energy all around and within us.
Whosoever tries to disprove that is a fool by default who will always meet frustration.
It’s no wonder they are mysterious; fingerprints are the insignia of God.
Some people claim they are an instrument of God;
if they were they would be perfect, sound perfect!
If this proves wrong, everyone is played by God,
and no one makes their own choices, good or bad.
An atheist told God, "Show me what you're made of!"
and God knocked him out with a thwack on the head.
Then came a believer in God who asked, "What are
you made of?" to which God replied, "Energy, for if
I were not this I would be a mere object, and here
standing before you, you know that not to be true."
Immunity to God, thinKing, that is what keeps you at the top!
Come the controversial Judgment Day
God’s questions will not consist of:
who, what, where, when, how nor why;
they will involve did you and do you.
Yeses and nos are the smartest answers
without further elaboration in because.
God already knows and will not ask for
our anamnesis; we are pre-diagnosed.
God descended. The world is blindfolded by faith,
and in touching God spread out on an open field,
everyone had different descriptions and images
to what they felt, and then, religions were born.
In controversial, mutilated religious limbs we fail;
God as one we prevail! Combine them all no lives
shall cease; combine them all to reform our peace!
That is the resolution to half this world's troubles.
If God were to descend to Earth now and spoke gibberish
otherwise rebelled or ignored when spoken by mortal men
in a sit-down conversation, a great many here on Earth,
without verbal annotations added, would agree with God.
O’ how strange it is! when a mortal delivers a viewpoint
(no matter how irrefutable) almost everyone alienates it.
There are divine judgments and sacred teachings:
sacred teachings may align somebody out of line;
weaponizing God’s judgments gets you executed!
When mortals model God’s judgments as their own
from sacred scriptures, it is the soundest judgment
aimed directly at one another that teaches no lessons.
This only makes the whole world rebel against you.
Only God can point what judgment(s) pertain to us
come the oft doubted, controversial Judgment Day.
Grace, a great many people think, "Does such a thing exist?" The answers is, absolutely,
yet a great many of us have to be walking through a garden to realize beauty all around.
Any cup big in size or anything big in proportion
than what is really necessary is a hornswoggler.
There are Hornswogglers, and then there are hornswogglers.
Bemoaning your cage but never trying to escape from it is much worse
than never realizing you're caged while trying to find a source of light.
Remain resilient to retain joy and your smile can never be made defeasible.
Indefeasible resilience brings an indefeasible smile.
Leaders vs. The People
We The People can lead our Leaders; we just don't know it yet
because we never think our position the other way around
in front of our Leaders. If we did, we'd know our true authority!
Lies // Untold Truths
It is better to tell a truth and hurt a little than a lie to hurt a lot.
You cannot decorate your lies with pretty flowers and pleasant replies all the time...
Truth told invites scold. No wonder people lie, right? I hear it all the time,
"I don't know why he lies like that!" or "I don't know why she lies like that!"
when the answer is very simple: people figure if they tell the truth outright,
they are going to get their head bit off anyway, so why not lie for a chance
to avoid getting their head bit off? There you go, but does it justify lies? No.
Characters in plays and movies are just the split personalities
of the Playwright and the Movie Producer to fulfill their ideals
that are hated by some and liked by others. That is the secret
to how not to be hated by everybody.
Meticulous crafted lies cower from the truth and tremble before shrewish tongues.
Since no man can really be more than one man at once,
Playwrights contradict their own opinions in their Actors.
So who is it we quote? Are Authors not their characters?
Is this the secret to justifying otherwise hated viewpoints
through some purposely controlled separation of oneself?
The courage to confess launders lies.
Anyone claiming they never entertained fatal arrangement,
lascivious considerations nor destructive actions are liars!
In ecstasy highs or when lovers communicate the phrase,
“Nothing else matters” it is an embellished, common lie;
“Little else matters” is a more accurate, seldom told truth.
Falser than every invented lie, let no good man fool you;
every good man has a guilty pleasure, wannabe dark side
through fanciful thinking best kept in books or to oneself.
Love // Interest // Rejection
Love preserves us when remembered; Love, when forgotten, destroys Man.
Love is childish, and blind, and deaf, oftentimes arduous
and wildly ardent, even formidable, rarely wise, scarce
of honesty, trust and acceptance sans shallow conditions
and fickle expectations. Love is a deceiving countenance
whose temerity and reckless haste oft defiles one's soul.
Love is everything I am not except silly for loving, for men
are anthophilous to women like to a rose, yet we stroke
their thorns, anyway, then wonder why hands bloodstained.
Even the dumbest women have a degree in Orogeny.
If someone you love will not reciprocate with a kiss, then you'll just have to write
a poem or letter, for a kiss on the eyes by words is equally close as any other kiss.
Love's to express, not to suppress.
It is easier for a man to forgive a woman of her shortcomings
than it is for a woman to forgive a man of his shortcomings.
A sweet woman is a full bottle of wine, always in love;
a wife is an empty wine bottle who forgot how to love.
No matter what, never let your wine bottle get empty:
refill it, be sweet, remember how to always be in love.
The more time you spend pondering what you did wrong, you lose valuable time planning what you can do better.
Disjuncture by death and distance does not mean a thing to Love
when you let the kisses of your thoughts be the extension thereof.
Pretending Love is poor acting and not Love at all.
You will know true Love when somebody can love you
even when you have nothing to offer except yourself.
When a woman liked by a good man is blind, and she turns him down,
the best thing a good man can do is forsake her for a while to validate
whether or not she will miss him. If she doesn't, he was never wanted.
Nothing is more detrimental to a good man than to while away his days
on somebody who is only half there, or does not want to really be there.
Better to be turned off and left than to be turned on and left like a bedroom light.
To those who say they love the whole world, I ask, how can anybody love the whole world
when the act of trying to love the whole world is proof enough you do not love some of it?
Tantalus Love moves quicker than the fingertips of our desire for it.
The first time I loved so hard, I drew and I drew
until one day I drew a portrait of her and gifted it.
Not too long after that day, we parted ways due to
unfortunate circumstances, my ability to draw
died with her, and then my ability to write began,
never to lose my ability to pen words ever since,
because writing expresses the heart so much more
where art’s instant purpose to do the same is poor.
Much philosophy and good advice goes out the window when the poor get rich.
Losing all conscience in money taints all that's sweet as honey.
Music plays genius; listen, and create!
Wordless music is equivalent to silence; it carries a powerful message.
For me, blues is easy to feel, but very hard to listen to.
You can surely distinguish one's disposition by the music they listen to.
The song Elysium in the movie Gladiator is close, though not quite as lovely,
to the sound of my departure from this world after I fulfill my purpose on it.
When music and the written word marry, a spurt of ineffable insight
is born a river, first rushing throughout the mind, and then finally it
goes to your hands until it materializes onto paper before your eyes.
A great many writers were made famous listening to just the right music.
When reading a foreign language in silence, there is a tall language barrier.
When listening to music in a foreign language, there is no language barrier.
Music integrates a personality in everyone's moment(s) it entices.
Sometimes the right music awakes the inner badass.
More than every major war of any kind I despise an assumptionist
whose assumptions lay silhouettes of non-existent things and are
often the very cause of every mutual conflict worldwide—brilliant!
Too much tiff and you’re stiff! Ease it down or risk killing yourselves to become stiffs.
Recent Past vs. Immediate Future vs. Hereafter vs. Thereafter
There is the very recent past, the immediate future, hereafter, and then thereafter.
Hereafter is slower than thereafter because hereafter goes from here to another
here, whereas thereafter will take you well beyond your recent pasts, well beyond
your immediate future and the here you were at because you were already there!
The science community loves to tout about questioning everything outside their walls by every
person involved in their secret cells, yet when outsiders begin to question or challenge science,
they then become labeled every synonym regarding what it means to be idiots and delusional.
Precious are our tantalus memories whose vague margins
fade forever and forever from our fingertips as we move...
