What Now?

My plate is empty.

What now?

Time to stare into

the vast unknown

and wait for the answers

that will never come.

My wallet is empty.

What now?

Time to work again

until my fingers bleed

and I have just enough

to say I have nothing.

My soul is empty.

What now?

Time to search for meaning

that will mend this broken

and exposed creature

to some semblance of a human being.

What Now?

#tbt

2017

It was a bright cold day

in January,

and the clocks were striking

thirteen.

Big Brother stood above,

hands in the air,

preaching to the loyal choir

below.

War is peace.

Freedom is slavery.

Ignorance is strength.

Propaganda produced

to those who will

swallow the pill with pride.

Suicide.

War can be peaceful.

Freedom is never free.

Strength is knowledge.

My love for you is greater than the crowds at Trump’s inauguration.

Depending on how you look at it, I love you a lot.

Happy 35th Birthday!

Oh, you’re 53? Same thing, that’s a fact!

My deepest sympathies to you in your time of need.

Sorry for your father’s passing. He’s not dead? Well he will be someday.
