Just Sit On Your Worthless Ass!

I will no longer post such missives

about how fucked up we all are.

We know the danger we face

and what we do is quite bizarre.

 

We pretend that all is well

as we ignore what we can’t bear.

The writing is on the wall

and obviously, you don’t care.

 

Don’t worry about a thing.

Just sit on your worthless ass

and pretend that all is well

while they plan the next big crash.

 

Don’t whine and don’t complain

and don’t moan about your plight.

You never tried to understand

that the rich are a parasite.

 

You just hated on the poor

and blamed them for being so.

But what you failed to realize

is that where they went, you too will go!

For those of you who have followed this blog for some time now, I thank you for your support but I am done repeating myself to worthless shits that don’t get it and I am including myself in the ‘worthless shits’ category because neither am I doing a goddamn thing about any goddamn thing. Apparently, we are all sitting around waiting on something or someone to save us from ourselves. Ain’t gonna happen. And so I have started a new blog because as the saying goes, “out with the old and in with the new.” I will keep this blog up for those who are interested in reading the fact that when we are all dead from either GMO foods, or from earthquakes caused by fracking or from World War III or from homelessness, lack of health care or from any of the other myriad of reasons for our demise that we could possibly have done something about and we sat back and did nothing because that was the easiest path to take, archive to your heart’s content. There is plenty of information here. I will no longer be checking out the blogs such as this one as I am only going to ‘follow’ poetry blogs that are ‘deeply from the soul and from the heart’ but I don’t want to read about how fucked up we are when that is already known. I am not going to continue to become angry over our fucked up situation and to no avail. I need some goddamn sunshine in my life and I ain’t getting it by concentrating on shit that’s going to remain shitty and just so you know that I mean what I say, THIS time, here is the link to the new blog that I have created and there will be no “We are fucking doomed!”, nonsense headed there!

Thank you all and for those that continue the useless, uphill struggle, for I will not say ‘battle’ because we never got that far; one less voice will not make any difference. Carry ‘quietly’ on!

We Don’t Speak From Our Own Heart!

speak from heart

Must we despair and give into gloom
when fortune’s smile turns sour?
We have raised a flag that’s white.
And from their wrath, we cower.

We copy and paste so many words.
And we pass them down each day.
We don’t speak from our own heart,
instead, we quote whatever they say.

How can our voices ever be heard
if we don’t send them down the line?
We blog because they have silenced us.
They have silenced your thoughts and mine.

If I quote from you and you quote from me
then our story, we shall tell.
There is someone wanting to know
that in fact, we are not for sale.

Who will hear your thoughts or mine
if we allow them all to die?
And when history tells our story
they will hear it from those who lie!

I wrote this because I think it’s a shame that all of us have a brain and we have eyes and we can see what is going on. But instead of spreading each other’s thoughts around, we simply post articles by Michael Snyder or Paul Craig Roberts and a host of others who are purported to be experts on the happenings of today. They already have a wide following because if the blog world is busy re-posting their articles, I am pretty sure that they’ve got their own website that gets loads of attention.

What people need to see, I think, is for those of us who are not paid writers with established websites to post our thoughts. People from all over the world come to our site, not to re-read something that they’ve seen a thousand times over, they want our perspective. But instead, what they get is the perspective of someone else and we are taking their position, even if we agree with it and running with it at the expense of all the other unsung heroes out there. There are so many of us who are gifted and talented with words and poetry and photography and we should desire to spread our thoughts and what is in our hearts all over the internet. How else are we going to counter all of the propaganda that is put out by the ‘lamestream’ media? How else are we going to become a viable entity instead of continuing to enjoy obscurity and in some cases, bemoaning it?

I quite often find myself moving on past those who simply post a short bit from some article they found somewhere and instead, I focus on reading the blogs that are posted by people who tell the story from their own perspective; from their point of view. It is always most interesting and eye opening to know that there are indeed, many of us who are in tune to what’s what. We just have a different way of saying it and yet, when we say it, it never gets heard.

In short, support each other. We all know that things are looking pretty bleak and everyone wants an audience. And for those who say, “I just write for myself.” If that were the case, you’d keep a journal beside your bed and not post it online. But be that as it may, try re-blogging someone else’s post other than Paul Craig Roberts. Re-blog the guy’s blog that you just read and found his point was solid, right on the mark or struck a chord with you. It just may strike one with someone else and so on and on it goes.
