On More

 

loneliness has been my partner

four marriages matter little

several lovers lost count

led me here

unfortunate

deep sacred introspection

 

an intro into inspection

who, what makes up rules?

too many of them

easy to ignore

an invitation to spend a life ripping myself apart

day after day

moments mounting

until the depression is so gripping

worthlessness so real

i sense i reek like rotting flesh

 

my sins no longer forgiven

were they ever?

god is dead to me

an evil stalker haunts me

lures me

to a dreadful end

confession no longer viable

a ruse a perversion

capriciously taken away by rule makers

public confession

an invitation to lie

or die

or

write and write more

what no one will read

the child who would not stop asking why

is still at it     

he refuses to die.

Quotes on the subject of "The War On Drugs"

    ― Joe Biden 1942 ― present

A sterner way to put it is that it is an outrage, an imposition on basic civil liberties and on the reasonable expenditure of social energy.”
    ― William F. Buckley Jr. 1925 ― 2008
  • “Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use…”
    ― Jimmy Carter 1924 ― present
  • "The war on drugs has made government more powerful, citizens less free, and hasn't helped users or addicts."
    ― Victor Mitchell 1965 ― present
  • "We cannot continue doing the same thing and expect different results."
    ― Otto Perez Molina 1950 ― present
  • “The war on drugs is wrong, both tactically and morally. It assumes that people are too stupid, too reckless, and too irresponsible to decide whether and under what conditions to consume drugs. The war on drugs is bankrupt.”
    ― Larry Elder 1952 ― present
