Don't forget to...

I've written so many different things lately, but nothing seems right. Nothing is right. Not even this, but for today, it shall stay.
Just quiet. Quiet.

Robots are real cool... but Dinosaurs are better

Constantly moving, truckin' along the same dusty roads
looking for the green, blue and gold havens
that showed me life is more than this wrangled down,
and hog-tied conformity laying on the tracks.

With my black and white Chucks laced and my suitcase
busting out, sticker-encrusted and loaded to the brim
my tweed cardigan blowing in the wind and random little
red string things tied around already too skinny wrists.

Missing all the shit that I thought defined me
for one quick moment; the reasons untold really.
Leaving mistakes behind and bleeding out ears to
Ready Fuels wasted on potent coal and gasoline fumes.

Back to the wind, exhaling heavy that musky whiskey breath
and too many stale cigarettes tugging at my heartstrings.
Grimy hands tracing down multi-colored Milwaukee boxcars,
and kicking unwanted stones like it's no one's business.

Dispensing my aggressions, acting like I'm punching clouds
washed out like watercolors I did back in ancient art classes;
not so old projects still sitt…

Pay attention

Illusions

I am almost finished reading Illusionsby Richard Bach, and I have to say that at first I was in great admiration. I felt like this was perhaps that book that might inspire me to see something that I have yet to fully comprehend, or give me some sense of a firm ground to stand on until that next "level-up" experience. So far, it hasn't told me anything that I don't already practice, like:
"There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in it's hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts.""Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.""Your conscience is the measure
of the honesty of your selfishness.
Listen to it carefully."
I'm not stating that I do not recommend this book... I just do not recommend it for myself. Personally, the storyline felt rushed and incomplete. I wanted there to be more to it. I wanted less in…
