Stop Waving your Flags at me!


     First of all, I don’t care about your sexual preference. As politically incorrect as it may seem, sexuality should be a private matter, and no one should even know about it besides your partner. What irritates me is some of your entire identities revolve around it. The LGBT community begs for attention with parades and such to point out the fact that they are different ,when if they kept it to themselves, no one would even know. “Gay rights” is nothing more than divisive, liberal propaganda to further the narrative that Americans are bigoted, intolerant, ignorant, and insensitive to those who differ from us in some way. The fact is, if people kept their sexuality private, this would be a complete non-issue. I have nothing against people that are different from me, but to throw in my face constantly about the plights and injustices that you face, hurts rather than helps your so-called cause.
     The waving of your “rainbow” flag draws attention and creates conflict by your own doing. Your loud minority, with the help of social media and TV, puts a spotlight on an issue that exists in your world only. The majority of Americans could not care less about your sexuality. There is a reason employment applications don’t ask your sexual preference. Number one, it’s illegal. Number two, it’s not relevant. There is real bigotry and racism in this country. There is hatred for people that don’t mirror the social construct of “normality”.  This is something that has been around since the beginning, but never has there been a group shinning a spotlight on themselves, begging for conflict as the LGBT community. Why don’t you take up a more noble cause like the opioid epidemic, or the homeless? Why are you calling attention to things that divide us? I don't hate you. But don't act like I am oppressing you because that would require me to care about this subject. And believe it or not, not everyone is interested in your sex life... We get it! You're gay and for some reason proud about your choice of sexual partners... Guess what? WE DON'T CARE!

Heaven


Alone with my thoughts...
A raging sea of disbelief and discontent....
Alone under a peaceful sky...
A ghost of steam merely seeking a vent...
My nightly friend Trazadone luring me to sleep...
Nightmares are scarce when sweet dreams do you keep...
My idea of God is different from yours my friend...
I still appreciate your prayers, and I will till the end...
So humble your heart for a moment and follow me to the sun...
We may never see heaven, but I promise we'll have fun...

Wish

I can wish and I can pray...
I can sit and waste away...
I can live in utter fantasy...
Blurring the lines of reality...
I can imagine my enormous wealth...
Everyone in wonderful health...
I'm not aging nor laying on a bed of regret...
I'm not afraid nor alone nor hiding from debt...
I'm never late to work because my car won't start...
I never prioritize my food from my grocery cart...
I never write about things that I fear,
And I love that image in the mirror...

Path


My path is now unclear...
I walk aimlessly through the haze...
My legacy of nothing...
Only memories of her gaze...
I am merely treading water...
Pretending not to drown...
Always listening for the music..
Yet I never hear a sound...
This path leads to nowhere...
So I may just turn around...
Maybe climb up on the ledge,
To watch the rushing ground.
My compass is broken...
Visibility compromised...
I sit where I once stood...
Lost and traumatized...

Finding my Way


Living this way...
Struggling to make it another day...
Counting the seconds, the minutes, the hours, the days...
When it will change, I cannot say...
I'm only keeping the monsters at bay...
I'm only saying what you won't say...
The inevitable we can only delay...
In this damp cave we tend to stay...
Tomorrow will our problems fade away?
Will our sky be of blue, or the same, pale grey?

Wrongly Caged


I plead my case in open court...
Justice will prevail!
I didn't do it! I was framed!
I scream from my prison cell...
These guys in here seem shady to me, and maybe up to no good...
They are hiding weapons and contraband, and would kill me if they could...
I lay my head on this thin bed, with freedom so far away...
I'm an innocent man among all these "innocent" men...
Perhaps I'll breathe the sweet, free air again... Someday...

Lottery People

My mind isn't as sharp as it used to be...
Seems that the cruel hands of time have stifled me...
Starring into space as the lottery people ask for 3 number fours...
Struggling for basic words to describe slammed doors...
I sit and ponder what I'm supposed to do...
Slowly simmering in my intellectual stew...
On the brink of losing it all...
On the brink of breaking a hip if I fall...
Senior coffee and more nicotine...
Don't care too much to come across mean...
Where to go and what to do?
Sleeping till nine, and awakening without a clue...
Dispensing what you need to hear...
Opening bottles of nothing but fear...
