    My Marijuana Thoughts

    I sit on the balcony with a blunt and a cd player, absorbing my surroundings
    wishing nature was my woman so she could wrap her arms around me

    Bee’s buzzing around, dogs running, guinea pigs do nothing with their little brain
    but all the animals are finding their place in the circle, their link on the chain

    All I ask is when are humans gonna do the same, and stop destroying life?
    Vicious thoughts like these, tear through my mind like a razor-sharp knife

    It makes my heart hurt to see the addicts on the street, its not supposed to be like this
    this is a nightmare I’m seeing and living, its like hell with a lemon twist!!

    I’ve been on this earth for 21 years, seen so many things, confronted so many fears
    now the only thing I’m afraid of and can’t control... are my own hot tears

    At times I feel young as an embryo, at others like a senior citizen playing bingo
    I’m caught between succumbing to the madness, and staying the way I am and living solo

    The solitude is very comfortable, only my demons to eliminate
    but with other people around, the air is filled with fake-ness, envy, lust and hate

    Money truly is the root of all evil....what’s at the top of the tree?
    Most people’s feet are stuck in the mud, they’ll never see

    Racism is alive and kicking, people just hide it these days
    people need a soul-shower and help in spiritual ways

    I love being different and staying a symbol of self
    my mind, heart, and my soul are the source of all my wealth

    All I can do is start from within, and be the best man I can be
    how the world accepts me, I have yet to see.

    It seems that I had seen your poem earlier but the title made me think that it was something that I could read later, perhaps after I had a drink, but I was wrong. This is a very well written and thought provoking poem and I enjoyed the read.
    Thank you for sharing it

    You are the midnightsson shining in all its brilliance straight into
    the hearts of those who look to you.

    You are the midnightsson dividing night and day into
    good and bad. in and out you shine-the son, the only son,

    Son, my son-to be held and nurtured and encouraged and preserved.

    don't stop now, don't go back. you are the son, the only son,
    the midnightsson...

    enjoy and good luck anyway!

    yeh,
    cheebah seems to have that affect..
    but what i regret is the
    eyes wide shut
    the soot
    the rut
    that promotes itself
    before the "high" feeling sets in
    can the cannibus ease the earth?
    will it help u analyze?
    or are we too wet from social baptism
    or just remain quiet
    while curable solutions underweigh
    a nation

    (*just what the green puts in my mind)
    thanx poet.........b.e.z.
