In a Hurry to Nowhere

I wonder why?

Why I have always hurried…
to get nowhere?

I wonder why?

Fuck Living in This Moment & Grasp Tomorrow

Fuck Living in this Moment & Grasp Tomorrow

Fuck living in this moment.

Fuck living in this moment of despair & darkness.

Live in the Now, oh surely you jest.

Pure Twaddle masquerading as pearls
Cast by Charlatans of the Spirit
whose Now, in this Moment,
has never been darkly menacing,
a vacuum full of despair,
squeezing the life and hope out their soul.

Charlatans of the Spirit spewing illusions.

Fuck living in this moment & grasp tomorrow.

Fuck living in this moment,
To be sucked into the Abyss,
To die in this moment,
This Now,
or
Crawl, claw & grasp Tomorrow.

Fuck living in this Moment,
Grasp Tomorrow.

Fuck living in this moment & grasp tomorrow - Richard E. Ward

Lurking Behind the Joy of Father’s Day

Lurking behind the joy of father’s day there can be sadness, grieving, mourning or perhaps anger for a father no longer present for a man.

Or a grandfather. Or a great-grandfather.

Maybe all of those – sadness, grieving, mourning and anger.

Emotions can roil on father’s day for so many men, especially those who are fathers.

Loss.

My father died some three years ago and I miss him.

It is strange to go, automatically, to call my Dad and come up short realizing that he is no longer there to answer my call. And this was not the first time.

Of course, there is the joy of remembering the 67 years that Dad was there to answer.

Death comes to us all, so it is always good, in the midst of sadness, to remember the life and the living that came before his death.

And of course, the joy of my being a father, now, in this moment.
