    .....of childhood dreams that never manifested...

    ~ Instead were swallowed by bad choices
    iced over by unmoving glaciers called denial...
    I have spiraled for years
    chasing ghost goals
    based on non-existent virtues
    only knowing my hurt
    not the pain of others.

    Not caring, I charged forward
    giving wounds unsparingly
    sharing only a feast of poison
    proudly stomping around
    with tainted values
    with no value for life
    or love...
    or even friendship,
    and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

    Can you feel
    the blistering winds
    found on heights-
    stacks of lies
    engineered...
    in the name of my desires
    and wants ?

    I've been the president of a nation
    called Manipulation...
    I've been the reigning king
    over a sovereign called Sorrow.
    Apathy...my ace boon coon,
    Rage ...my faithful companion.

    Gypsy-like...
    always packing up,
    always moving...
    always running to the edge of town-type...
    always gotta icepick
    gun or a knife....
    always...
    ALL WAYS
    ...ready to fight.

    In remembrance of my son's first seven years
    and my daughter's whole life never knowing me,
    never knowing the love of their biological...

    I would say,

    " ***** ! I never knew MY father ! "

    "I'm locked..... I'll get in touch when I'm free ! "

    Gaining freedom only to still be in bondage...
    to me....

    Insanity at best..failing this test
    called life I have been given...

    no more.


    In remembrance of a man who has been rotten to the core....



    Rest In Peace




    On A Continuous Journey

    Gypsyman.....

    Such a heartfelt confession
    but sometimes necessary
    to begin the healing.......

    now that you've put him to rest, you can move forward.
    Thank you for sharing this. I think we all have somethin that needs to be buried before we can have a chance to be "free."
    P.S. Don't stop movin....:heart:
