By suggestion, a place for the poets among us to post their words.

Planet of The Apes: Origins

I have existed as I expected yet been disaffected by decisions to which I succumb. In the future, I reckon, as poor choices beckon, I'll be less nimble than numb. A rising inhuman feeling, I'm apart of being, but a part of the decidedly dumb. In my condition, unable to speak without contrition, unspeakably sedated and out of commission, I find myself among the unsung. With debilitating humility from declining mental agility, a lesser primate, I have become.
The devolution's hastened by faux revolution raisin' in the name of the orangutan Trump. A regular Ape Lincoln, with a gorilla tactic inklin', the only change his devoted will get is a chump. Yet, the worst of it, few give him shit, since many fell for this relative chimp's speeches on stump. In time and despair, perhaps we'll care, and American humanity recognizes insanity, then gives him The Donald Dump.

Shine

We're so close
And yet so far
I guess that's just
The way things are
And we'll all know
When Heaven's here
That's the place where no one lives in fear
so Shine
There is nothing better for you to do with your
Time
Than be a rainbow of love

We're living on
A miracle
We pick and choose
Of our free will
And each new day
We choose our path
And only love can make God laugh
so Shine
There is nothing better for you to do with your
Time
Than be a rainbow of love

We're so close
And yet so far
I guess that's just
The way things are
A smile here
A heart-ache there
So many things that we all share
so Shine
There is nothing better for you to do with your
Time
Than be a rainbow of love

Breathe

Just breathe...

Breathe...Gasping, into light you're thrown!
Like glass, your turning leaf is blown
clear of sweet slumber's song but there's
no need of hers - you'll sing your own.

You, newly born of mother's prayers,
will breathe your first of earthen airs
and thirsty, let your voice be heard
'til she's dispersed the drink she shares.

As leaves are, by the wind, bestirred,
with each new breath, you'll find you're spurred
on by survival's undertow
as well as by debts love-incurred.

Oh, precious child, I love you so!
What wonders of this world you'll know
but one day too, this life you'll leave...
Take one last breath and let it go.

Yes, breathe...

You don't have to go to DC. All that shit's on Google Maps now.

That's quite enough from you, slo.
Go on, back in the hutch.
