The Life


No judging please

I like to relax

It doesn’t take much

Facts are facts.

Smeagol is my name

And I’ll be here for a few

Sleeping in a box

Like cats like to do.

Life isn’t rough

And I’m easy to please…

So I’m keeping life simple

It’s the only way to be.

Enigmatic

Enigmatic

Someone unknown
While having a name . . .
Walking the mile
Assigning guilt and shame.
Performing a role
Without knowing how it’s done –
Challenging the winner
Before the game is won.
Defending a stranger
Offering means to succeed…
Not knowing the problem
But fulfilling the need.
Hearing a voice
Sensing a presence near
Required absence
Understanding clear.

Hope and Prayer


I sip my coffee

And prepare my mind

Hoping to make the right changes

For the interview  this time.

Three months unemployed 

Has taken its toll on the account 

Loving the extra time

Not the bills starting to mount.

A humbling process. . .

Different from years passed

Always having a job 

Expectations often surpassed.

Hands are now folded

My head slightly down

May this be the prayer answered

And employment be bound.

Keeping Youth 


Walk into walls

To see if they fit

Finger in socket

Until the shocks quit.

Ring around the Rosie

Truck bed rides

Drinking from a hose

God is the guide.

Eat off the floor

Before the final second ends

Remember it all

Even when time isn’t a friend.

The Joker

The Joker

I walk in a dimension
There are truths
Dressed in stories
Of the liars den.
I walk carefully
To not wake curiosity
In me
Or in anything.
Whispers taunt
Like wasps circle
No Trust
But fear.
The joker laughs
As the fool trips
On the truth of the ledge
And the romance of the fall.

Not Knowing Why


So often a need to understand 

Is a puzzle that can’t be solved

Delusions hide a truth 

Impatience hides resolve.

Magic is an illusion 

Much like reality in a group . . .

All life faces death 

The old once had youth.

Moments are a consequence 

To a past coming true . . .

Blessing are the lesson

Learning is up to you.

Faith in an outcome-

Despite trials taking comfort’s place

Hides beauty and a power . . .

Too often sacrificed to waste.

Grey skies lead to blue-

The sun will always rise

Stop needing to understand –

Appreciate not knowing why.

In Loving Memory

Amazing Sky
I witnessed the end
With no middle or beginning-
Confusion and torment
And faith growing and thinning….
I heard the stories told
As laughs were appreciated and shared
All about a young man
Who could no longer be there.
The more I learned about you-
Less anything made sense…
Actions so regrettable-
Knowledge missing a defense.
I witnessed amazing love
As a community held tight
Crying together-
Knowing nothing would make this right.
I was part of a goodbye-
Without ever having a hello…
But I will still miss you always. . .
And that is what I needed you to know.
