I say out loud what others only think. I take great pleasure in expressing the hard core truth about awkward situations at Misscue.Hubpages.

Squinting To Recognize All the Strange Faces

Making my way through unfamiliar places.

Strain for a sound.

Got weird vibes all around.

My future’s unclear.

Memories of past; only traces.


...that it’s temporary,

Avoiding the pain of reality.

Life is death.

Yet worth every breath.

Crazies continue to trickle through my sanity.

Silent Suffering

I refuse to complain.

Reluctance, enduring all the pain.

I accept my role,

Life’s taking its toll.

Those insane thoughts threaten my peace once again.

It Seems They Tend To...

...gain great strength through my plight.

Only this time, won'tcha please leave some for me tonight.

Knowledge is vast.

Future soon past.

Upside down, inside out, then what’s left is usually right.

Crazies continue to trickle through my sanity.

Yet Always Present,

My future trumps past,

Feet solid on the ground,

I try to stand fast.

Moments fleeting, blink too late.

Obligatory suppression forces me to wait.

Options are endless, choices so vast.

Celebrate Mortality

We are the human family.

Hello to brother.

Blessings my sister,

Oh Father and dear mother.

Take us all, keep us sage,

Pass wisdom down to babes.

Committed to family.

Still searching for that other.

..................Keeping It Real

Always a part of me that doesn't want to grow up.

And What We Do...

For jobs beyond, taken prematurely.

Surrounded by pods.

This is how it has to be.

Celebrate mortality,

Life's journey, my reality.

With knowledge comes freedom,

Now it all seems so clear to me.

Crazies continue to trickle through my sanity.
