way up into the sky

pandemic times
I’ve been around
here & there
nuttin’ profound
just livin’ & chillin’
sort of
nonchalantly dreamin’
but hopeful
for what’s next
beyond
drastically disruptive
earth change

we’ve gotta wonder
for the human-kind
to survive
a lot of us
may have to fly
way up into the sky
dwellin’ on
different
type of ships
in outer space
travelin’ about
to and from
the various planets
and stars
far away from
the familiar
mother earth ship
we’ve lived on   ~
called our home
for so long

just saying …..
peace out

truck on

I NOW walk 3 minutes
and my oxygen level
dips below
88%
holy fuck
the danger zone  …..
at 85%
you start along
the journey of brain damage
oh my   ~
how my mind wanders
to days gone by
when I was able to walk
18 miles
like nothing
for AFSP
and my team S.O.L.E.S.
“Surviving Our Losses
Experienced through Suicide”
yes  ~  at times
I’ve suffered with depression
and thought about
the big “S”
as this Peace Out
Social Activist
who can’t do the things
he used to  …….
on this day in June
the 4th
2022 in NYC
to all of those doing
the AFSP 18 mile walk
truck on my sisters
and brothers
I appreciate and love you ALL
dearly  ~  THANK YOU

just saying  ……
peace out

long-termer humans

~Peace Out~

I’m regrettably
a long-termer
Lyme disease has had
a long lasting effect
it knocked me down  …..
and fights to keep me
from getting back up
condemned it seems
forever suffering
eternal punishment
on a hellish earth
~   doin’ its
dynamically natural
thang  …..
by way of
drastically
disruptive
earth CHANGE
as if others
and me
being DAMNED
ain’t enough
that COVID thingy
had to come along  …..
WTF a pandemic   ~
where it appears
no matter if
fully vaccinated
and boosted
not vaccinated
or somewhere in between
people are still getting
“The Virus”
in differing decrees
some again and again
others suffering
the effect from it
long term  …..
jeepers creepers
some of us long-termer’s
already suffering
eternal punishment
on a hellish earth
could also
undergo additional
long-lasting pain  ~
distress and hardship
from that Covid thingy
and whatever else
the impartial forces
of drastically
disruptive
earth CHANGE
dynamically
conjures up
through
the nature gods
to cast doom
on our HUMAN future

All Aboard ~
the next spacecraft
ready to depart
our temporary spaceship
called planet EARTH
so us ~
long-termer humans
quite possibly ~ may survive …..

not really so concerned

pro-lifer  ~  THEY say
what really
does a statement
like that mean   …..
as a peace out  ~
social activist
I wonder
does it mean the THEY
have a concern
for a life
beyond
the first breath
do the THEY
keep an eye
on the entire life
of a newborn …..
do the THEY
assure a life’s
continual well-being
or are the THEY
really pro-birthers
who force a woman
take away
her choice and rights
as to her
OWN BODY
and totally disregard
her life circumstances
at the time and thereafter
the birth of a life
do the THEY
really  ~  really care
about a life
especially
after being born …..
not the pro-birther’s
the THEY
cleverly disguised
as being
a not really
so concerned
pro-lifer   ~

just say …..
peace out

a minimalist ~

~Peace Out ~

as time goes by …….
while the old codger
inch by inch
grows in me
I’ve become
more and more
a minimalist ~

a spiritual and conscious decision
as a peace out ~ social activist
to use the least amount …..
conserve the best I can
the dwindling resources
from an over-consuming
naturally
ever-expanding
HUMAN-KIND ~ experiencing life
on its temporary abode
spaceship earth

as time goes by …….
while the old codger
inch by inch
grows in me
I’ve become
more and more
a minimalist ~

’cause why would
I wanna
if my intuition and mental prowess
is correct
take all that baggage
carry so much crap with me
when quickly boarding
due to drastically
disruptive earth change
the next over-loaded spaceship
ordained by the nature gods
to make its journey
in search of …….
the next temporary home
for humans
somewhere out there
among the stars that shine

just saying …..
peace out ~

thoughts running about

thoughts running about
in my head  …..
as a peace out  ~
social activist

once so young
all seemed more simple
and new
older now asking   ~
“what the hell
do I do
and where
should I go
next”

when life was before me
dreams seemed more fresh
and achievable
now dreams are complicated
laced with complexity
and over-shadowed
by illness

oh stop it now
old man   ~
such a sourpuss  …..
you have to stay strong
and positive
for the children   ~
the grandchildren
and all HUMAN-KIND
what hope will they have
regarding the future

thoughts running about
in my head  …..
as a peace out  ~

don’t get me started

what a drag  ~  man
~  takin’ meds
in old age
it’s a bummer  ~  man
much like my early
twenties
when I was smokin’
~  man
always countin’
my pack of cigs
to see how many
I had left  ~  man
now I’m countin’
my meds
in the containers
to see how many
I have left   ~   man
or worryin’
about insurance
if they cover
or not
the new shit
the doctor
has put me on
~  man
don’t get me started
on the fuckin’
co-pays   ~   man

just saying …..

hey ~ HUMAN-KIND

hey  ~  HUMAN-KIND
don’t sit on the sidelines of life  ~
be proactive
and spread the word  ~
“Let’s Survive, Not Die!”
’cause We the people
of planet earth
must unite
set aside our differences
and learn how to adapt
to prevailing conditions
instead of getting distracted
and bogged down
in the mire of it all
especially if
we’re gonna survive
into the future
so ALL human KINDS
can live on and on …..
regardless  ~
what types of
drastically disruptive
earth change may occur
seemingly
Nature’s impartial rendition
of cyclical genocide
that in the past
eradicated
entire KINDS of the living
like the HUMAN-KIND
from continued participation
in the dance called life
while time marches on …..

just saying …..
peace out

if We are for Democracy  ~

We the people
the HUMAN-KIND
subordinate to
the autocratic
regulatory sub-system
called planet earth  ~
We humans
as the reflective
conscious kind
a part of ALL KINDS
subject to the laws of
the autocratic Nature GODS
need to make a decision …..
whether WE
are for
democratic governance
or not  ~
a relevant question
when pondering
the present day situation
where various forms
of human born
ideologically based
autocracy
rooted in Nature’s example
as a whole system
of dynamically
controlled order
that produces a variant
known as complexity
are gaining
notoriety again
as well as  ~
autocratic advocates
who have taken
advantage of
opportunistic circumstances
to deploy
despotic agents
inside the workings
of democratic governance

if We are for Democracy  ~
then We need to fight for it
sooner than later
through types of
Non-Violent
Direct Action
like OPEN DIALOGUE
that find root in liberty
at least as
I say  ~  as a Peace Out
Social Activist …..
’cause time is running out
due to the fact
that drastically
disruptive earth changes
(for example
the recent pandemic, etc.)
have started
even more so
to measure out
this
autocratic
type
influence
over the captive
subjects
of planet earth
and for
the HUMAN-KIND
to overcome and survive
such destabilizing
earth changes
to our way of living
We the people
must not
sit passively
on the sidelines of life
but become
active participants
We the people
vigilantly
need to be proactive
and spread the word
Let’s Survive, Not Die!
HUMAN-KIND
must decide
in spite of
the autocratic
regulatory laws
of Nature
if the democratic
form of governance
becomes
the foundational
structure …..
the wise support system
to build on
so to preserve and sustain
our KIND’s future
in a way that
liberates our KIND
releases us to become
less subordinate to
the autocratic
regulatory sub-system
called planet earth   ~

just saying …..
peace out

old CODGER

after the ordeal
of a prolonged COVID-19
isolation ……
aided by the persistent
pain and fatigue of illness  ~
I often find myself
afloat
in a sea of
memory
known as
yesteryear
and the word
old CODGER
slowly seeping
into my self-esteem  ~
well ……  I must admit
it’s somewhat
due to
the conjured up
vanity
called
my appearance

just saying …..
peace out
