You’ll have to rely on my words now. I have no more pretty pictures that prompt me anymore. I don’t want them.

Cruel is this earth so I’ve decided to ignore it. To dull my senses. Because I don’t understand why some people get a hand dealt to them the way they do. Nothing makes sense in the world anymore.

War, famine, drought, flooding and more children dieing who shouldn’t have had to. Ukraine, Uvalde and this damn heat. I’m at my wits end. I want to love and be in love. But as much as I’ve loved just a few women in my life I don’t think it was really love.

I feel so much and don’t know how to express it sometimes without slapping letters on paper with a pen. It’s liberating and I respect tradition but I am a very rebellious person. So I’m sorry people have to put up with me but very thankful.

Rhymes? Yeah, if I don’t do it right can be awful. I’m trying and I want to do better. So any suggestions would help. But I do this because of the liberating feeling I get to share what I like.

I believe in God but I get so upset with how the Lord allows some things to happen. Things could be worse in my life. I am blessed with a life that is simple.

Yet to those who hurt, my heart goes out to you. To those who hunger, may you be blessed with a meal. Stay strong friends. Life is brief and we must experience its pleasures and moments of beauty.

I can’t help everybody I come across. But I can at least be cordial and supportive. Like you guys are with me. So thank you. I don’t think I’m better than anyone and I don’t think I know better than anyone about anything.

All I know is I want to learn and to continue learning new things about people and how to share my emotions with them. In a healthy way especially.

    Life is tough, my friend. Your rhymes don’t have to be perfect. If it helps you to keep writing, that’s what you should do. Hugs, Jared. I’m here for you.
