A New Year

"A New Year"

As we pass through this portal,
From a year that may have been a mess.
I hope that the journey has given,
Your life more meaning not less.

I hope that the passing,
Or enduring of this past year.
Has left you with far more joy,
And far fewer tears.

But should you feel the reverse,
Striking your heart so cold and true.
Then I now hope that the coming year,
Holds far more joy than tears for you.

Safe In The Shade

"Safe In The Shade"
A road off to the side.
Also a worn winding path.
All set neatly around,
A beautifully branched tree.
The path or the road?
Where do either lead?
So rest safe in the shade,
Feel the quiet and just be free.

Cool things about Halloween

A cool way to save money when shopping @ Walmart

Ok, so the last time we went shopping @ Walmart our cashier told us something we didn't know.  When you get your receipt there is one of those funky little box things that you can scan with a Walmart app you can down load for free.  You down load the app and scan the receipt with your phone or tablet.  So I did this and it said it was searching near by retailers for better deals on what you had purchased.  It was over 70 retailers in my case and it looks out 3 days from your purchase so it takes about 3 days to get your savings.  So after 3 days I got an email and the app found better deals on our purchases and I will get over $7 when I go in for our next purchase.  It comes in the form of an E-Gift card that I have yet to use at the store, but all in all that is pretty cool.  I will let you know how redeming the E-Gift card works once we have gone back to do our shopping again and let you know how it worked out.  It really seems like a cool deal, I will let you know how it all works out.

What We Are

“What We Are”

I am not here,
Not anymore.
I am not, 
What I was before.

Before there was something,
Something I had remaining.
But now I live where,
It is only raining.

I am not,
Someone who is strong.
I am someone,
Who no longer belongs.
Adrift on a warm wind,
Memories of when I had friends.
And today I drift.
Knowing everything ends.

We are built,
By nothing from afar,
And we will never be nothing more than,
What we are.

The Past

“The Past”

The picture fell on the floor.
The frame and glass shattered.
And beyond the horizon,
Nothing mattered.
But we live here in the broken mess,
We live in the remnants of what lasts.
Haunted by all the memories,
Of the past.
So like the past,
Life drifts away.
But hangs in your soul,
Waiting for words to say.
