Death Poetry

A good friend of mine introduced me to the concept of Death Haiku. Poems intended to ease fear and become comfortable with the concept of death.

Here's some death for you to enjoy:

the earth calls my name
I settle in it's embrace
earth is now my name

boldly passive I
sit awaiting what is next
knowing it's nothing

burning energy
neurons firing is life
all fuel is finite

comparison's invalid
ends for all the same


Long ago I developed a mental image of bloggers, a person using a port-o-potty for a soapbox ranting and rambling about general inanity. I was always reluctant to add my voice to the cacophony, because of the meaninglessness of it all. None of that has changed, yet here I am. I have come to accept that just because something has no substantial meaning, that is not a reason to abstain. So I signed up and here I am, ready to spew my thoughts and feelings on matters to the whole world knowing that just like the guy in the park preaching to the masses, I have little chance of being heard or taken seriously. So let the inanity commence with some video footage of my bro's rockin out.

Give 'em Hell

I finally gave in and created my very own blog. I have contributed before to others, but was never willing to take the plunge myself. I realized I was the only one looking anyway so what was the point. I have heard it said that the most effective hiding spot is right under peoples noses. So maybe, just maybe the opposite is true as well and by posting in complete obscurity, someone other than me may actually see this. So without further adieu, here is my perspective on that which is the intertubes.
