Literature
A Simple Storm
Thunder crashed overhead as the slate grey sky begins to weep,
The trees and flowers from the ground these tears they will surely keep,
The life that watches with baited breath as the tears they fall and splash,
Shall move along the with cover to protect them for fear of falling victim and turning into ash,
Through the night until the morn a constant vigil they will stand,
Keeping track of the quickly softening sand,
While the thunder overhead brings with it bright and flashing lightning,
Creatures large and small seek cover because they find this to be frightening,
From the dawn until the day's dusk shall the life be wary,
For when the storm does pass many shall be merry,
Through the night and with the day we find that there is no pain,
But in the end we must remember, the gods are in the Rain.

On Crimson Waters
Like the ebb and flow of the ocean, the ups and downs of life allow us to know that we are alive.
For every up, there must be a down, so too must people come and go from our lives.
We have become so dependent on the company of others that we forget what it’s like to be alone.
There are, of course, exceptions to the rule. Those who avoid people entirely begin to feel as though they are being shunned, when the truth is they isolate themselves.
It is the self-destruction of our need to interact with others that can cause a person to go from lonely to destructive.
We see and hear about people who decide to take their self-destructive ideals and turn them against the very people whom they refused to interact with.
The death of men, women, and especially children can be avoided if we are only willing to watch the crowds for those who need someone to talk to, who need a shoulder to cry on.
Not only is society responsible for people who go bad, society is also responsible for each other

Literature
Fuel of the Soul
Passions rise while people listen,
Used in war and the kitchen.
Both of good, and of evil;
Different sounds for different people.
From Rock and Pop, to Classical and Dubstep,
People define what they find peaceful.
Though it soothes the savage beast,
It can spark a violent crescendo.
Shattering the boundaries of race and culture,
Music is a beautiful reminder that we are not vultures.
Play the cello, or the guitar;
Music will always take you far.

Literature
Sorrow
Distant memories fade as the light that once welled up within pours out of the eyes that are filled with sorrow from the failed expectations of the new day.
Leaving only demons and ghosts to converse over whether or not it’s time to tell the poor wretch that he was fooled by the promise of a better tomorrow. Few there are who could meet the expectations set before them,
Yet even fewer can say they made it out alive,
Where then does it leave me when asked,
“What happened to your passions?”
Drowned in the rage and sorrow of the black river that is failure,
But can we call it failure if I haven’t actually attempted to pursue the dream cooked up by the bright ambitions of a young man,
Who found himself deep within the unforgiving desert by the way of rain that drowned the sound of naysayers who were believed to be a toxic influence,
But were truly voices asking to be heard, to offer help to bring the young man above the rain that began to drown everything around him

Idea
I see you in the night
We meet daily
I follow you home
I invade your dreams
I lay next to you in the morning
You write me down not knowing why
I give you reason
You shape me
You help me grow
I give you strength
I give you hope
You steal my life
You profit from me
I never complain
I give you everything
You never thank me
You will die eventually
I am immortal

Truth
At the well of souls I kneel, awaiting death’s grand appeal, for though I’ve lived a thousand lives, those around us just tell lies, Ancient battles of the past, catch up to us all to fast, though I believe I cannot die, when I do no one should cry, for death is merely part of life, often causing lots of strife, since there is nothing we can do, look to the Long Roads End, for that is where I bid adieu.

It's been eons since I last updated you all. I'll skip the boring stuff a get right to it. I've created a patreon so that I can have, and hopefully maintain, a proper schedule. www.patreon.com/GlennG become a patron if you like, you'll get to read and see more of my work that way. I'll post some things here after they've been up for a while, still figuring everything out at the moment. Here's to a new start.

A Simple Storm
A poem I wrote that was influenced by the rain.

Like the ebb and flow of the ocean, the ups and downs of life allow us to know that we are alive.
For every up, there must be a down, so too must people come and go from our lives.
We have become so dependent on the company of others that we forget what it’s like to be alone.
There are, of course, exceptions to the rule. Those who avoid people entirely begin to feel as though they are being shunned, when the truth is they isolate themselves.
It is the self-destruction of our need to interact with others that can cause a person to go from lonely to destructive.
We see and hear about people who decide to take their self-destructive ideals and turn them against the very people whom they refused to interact with.
The death of men, women, and especially children can be avoided if we are only willing to watch the crowds for those who need someone to talk to, who need a shoulder to cry on.
Not only is society responsible for people who go bad, society is also responsible for each other person who is only sad.
In the best interest for the wellbeing of everyone, we should reach out to friends, family, loved ones, and strangers.
Tell someone they’re strong for waking up in the morning; tell someone they are beautiful.
All we can do is all that we must. Being human is being caring, kind and patient.
For in the end; who are we if not a reflection of the society we interact with every day.
Passions rise while people listen,
Used in war and the kitchen.
Both of good, and of evil;
Different sounds for different people.
From Rock and Pop, to Classical and Dubstep,
People define what they find peaceful.
Though it soothes the savage beast,
It can spark a violent crescendo.
Shattering the boundaries of race and culture,
Music is a beautiful reminder that we are not vultures.
Play the cello, or the guitar;
Music will always take you far.

Yet even fewer can say they made it out alive,

Where then does it leave me when asked,

“What happened to your passions?”

Drowned in the rage and sorrow of the black river that is failure,

But can we call it failure if I haven’t actually attempted to pursue the dream cooked up by the bright ambitions of a young man,

Who found himself deep within the unforgiving desert by the way of rain that drowned the sound of naysayers who were believed to be a toxic influence,

But were truly voices asking to be heard, to offer help to bring the young man above the rain that began to drown everything around him.

Now opportunities to chase the dream are few,

Even the most promising path seems to be too rough to travel.

So he continues on the path that he is familiar with,

Refusing to accept that one must struggle with hardships in order to reap the rewards of success.

The night draws near, and the shadows grow long, time it is to find the rest that he so desperately needs before he can see that the sun will always show the proper path,

Through a troubled life made difficult by the obstacle that is poison of the mind.  

 

Sorrow
Every day I work to keep myself out of depression. This was todays outlet.
