The discoverers goodbye kiss

I wake the children early
in the hopes I beat the sun.
I quickly garner bread and cheese
for change has already begun.

I place the table perfectly
in dawn's growing light.
I smile in its warmth,
As I plead for more night.

My hands work...

Untitled 2 (a puzzle)

Why must we Put morally devoid Public Polluters on Pedestals? those who Perturb the Poor Pious, and Pervert the Powerless, Pitiful, Populace.

Immaculately, Incompetent.
Yet Infatuated, Idiotically.
by Irritatingly Indispensable.
Individuals,...

Gasoline

Gasoline,
My favorite drink.

Gasoline,
In my veins.

Start to bleed,
over the flames.

Take them in,
A welcomed end.

Misery bound,
Sights on the ground.

Vapor breath,
Sweetened death.

And I know,
I got no place else to go.

we've all got devils that like to whisper little sins to us. So always know you're not alone. The fact that you're 72 proves you are strong, and that even the devil himself couldn't stop you from being the amazing person you are! I've got another piece called "the discoverers good by kiss" you might also like!! Thanks for caring, and thanks for sharing your time with me!

JdeLorenzo08 thank you so much! I've been writing for a long time and I'm slowly trying to build the courage to put my work out there. So this means the world to me!!! Everyone here's really great and we're glad to have you here!

that's exactly right, it's sort of a retort to some schools of existentialism. In that, where the argument that life is ultimately meaningless. The fact that we have a life at all is indicative of purpose. It's a self fulfilling prophecy. Because the purpose of life, is to find purpose in life. No matter how large or small you live it, the fact you have it and it ment something to you. Means you won the game. it means you gave "meaninglessness" meaning. That when you return to the abyss, you can go with your head held high. Knowing you're returning NOT empty handed. holding proof of you're own meaning, through the purpose you've created for yourself.

You're writing comes off conversational and effortless. Were most of the others aimed to write poetry. You wrote, and it WAS poetry. Congrats, you've got my vote.
