I miss tripping over all those clothes piles

I miss untangled that mess of wires

I miss moving the plastic container boxes to get to my books

I miss holding my body against the door to keep it open

I miss climbing over a body to get to the shower

All that clutter, I miss it so.

Waiting For

I’m waiting for the sun to set

I’m waiting for a new tomorrow

I’m waiting for the man

I’m also waiting for the woman

I’m waiting for something to change

But to be really honest

I’m just waiting for my bus to come.

I’ve been waiting for fifty minutes

And it’s cold!


There is a light in my life so bright I can no longer sleep through the darkest of days.

It never dims, and it never burns out.

It’s a light that pushes you towards it,

even through headaches

or through sleep deprived eyes

And so each day is brighter

Those LED light bulbs were a good idea, after all.

Fresh Start

It’s time for a fresh start.
A time for putting all that crap behind you, flinging it with one hand over the shoulder.
It doesn’t really matter the age, anyone can choose to have a fresh start.
Start fresh any day!
Start fresh everyday!

Ignore all your debts
Cut off those warts
Glue on some hair
Suck out your fat
Remove all your friends
Rub out your name
Burn down your home
Burn down your family

Without such extremes
That fresh start will turn sour
Grow mold
Start rotting
Start stinking

But yes, fresh starts are free, and they’re here, everyday of the week.
