life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

the hardest thing 


 this birth of awaiting changes
this for that

tit for tat

tuxedo memories

pinstripe debonair

glamour hangs

like confetti in the air

life goes 

round and round

flinging dreams

synthetic roads

leading nowhere 

screams and laugher 

hardest when not fair

up one side now

down the other there

we hang on

we stomp our feet 

and swear

this ain’t right

this we cannot bear

life goes forward

ever on and on

wanting only

to change our point of view

we are loved

no matter what we lose

love will win

love’s always life’s sweet muse

sight or blind

the vision ours to choose




 expectancy. awe

Anticipation of 

coming back to life

moving through the grey

into new 





There is no guarantee of anything in this lifetime

however there are amazing things hidden

which bring forth their fruit

in their season

Sometimes it feels like it just won’t happen,


flash, boom, bang

and you got okra up to the second floor windows! 

Go ahead, live with the hope

Plan with the expectancy

of all good things

come in their time




It rains on the just and the unjust.  


On this day of your life I believe God wants you to know… 
…that yearning for a new way will not produce it.

Only ending the old way can do that.
You cannot hold onto the old all the while

declaring that you want something new.

The old will defy the new;

the old will deny the new;

the old will decry the new.


There is only one way to bring in the new.
You must make room for it.


   – Neale Donald Walsh
