Stopping, stopping, stopping We fear the mere thought of stopping   Walking, walking, walking We spend such little time walking   Running, running, running We wish we could always be running   Climbing, climbing, climbing, We think we can never stop climbing   Falling, falling, falling We can never let anyone see us falling

Growing Up

Times are changing Everyone wants to rush But one day it'll all be over No looking back But we couldn't wait for this day To walk across that stage And get the piece of paper that changes it all We just couldn't wait to be done But now it's all over and we'll miss all the fun It's time for new memories New friends and experiences But we'll never forget the days we spent Just being yo...

Stream of Consciousness

Flowing through my mind like a river Thoughts swimming in my head Like the salmon that follow the currents It all goes down stream. No new thoughts to make a splash, It's all just basic intellect. School, schedules, social life. Things that truly matter not. I walk the halls empty minded Waiting to be suddenly confounded By something so new and complex; I'm looking at faces to be inspired; Each...

No, be nice. Turn down the volume. But the mistakes. No, don’t think. She can’t help but think. That doesn’t mean we should. How do we turn it off? You can’t. You know this as well as I do. I thought we were better. We were Then… What happened? Life, us. Us? What did we do? You don’t know? No, I don’t. I want to help. You can’t. But we’re all there is! She has to But we’re her. There’s no her or us...

A love poem

Filed under IndyInk, Poems

Men The tough guys The risk takers The pursuers And Women The soft femininity The enthusiastic helpers The pursued But Should not each person Receive respect? Receive love? Feel wanted? Be tough? Strength should come Not from finding a partner But from finding inner balance And The only true love story Is the one in which You realize Men and women Aren't so different After all...

and another day and sunlight pours into the room painting every nook crook and cranny pale gold and the robins resting in elm trees whistle always the same dulcet song into the wold   and another day and sunlight slips quietly between the blinds skewering nebulas of dust on its spears and the robins hidden by elm trees drone on and on until the fabric of their concord tears   an...

The Process of Writing

Forcing words, that is something simply, impossible. The words must flow on their own the pressure of a guiding hand will only muddle it in the end. Learn to let them free, they'll sing and dance in beautiful ways creating a unique song. The product is never what it was meant to be, and the reader will take care of the rest. So sit back, let them listen to your words sing

Learning to crawl, learning to walk, Learning to drive, and learning to talk. Growing older is a thing we all do, Taking it in stride is all we can do. Saying goodbye, saying hello. We all must eventually come and go. ...

Love

For pain, Shred up all of the love letters you've ever gotten, And take them Like pills. Share them if you will, But they won't work as well for another Because they are your love notes, Not theirs. For a rainy day, Shoot your pills into the sky. The clouds will absorb them And soon the rain will stop. For dead grass, Sprinkle the love notes like seeds, So the love notes will grow...

Everyone is required to take this test. All you can do is hope for the best. Only number two pencils and no calculators permitted. You best get a move on your time is limited. You’ll do fine they say as you walk in the door, But do poorly and your future gets thrown on the floor. Is there, their and they’re as important as they say? Will the quadratic formula save me one day? It’s amazing what the ACT will do,...
