7 Demons

As addicts, we have experienced many of the same things in our lives. We have slept in similar ditches, woken up in the wrong beds, got caught up with the wrong people, and done a million things we cannot remember, no matter how hard we try.             But, one of the things thatContinue reading “7 Demons”

Desire for Travel and Adventure

     I have a strong desire for travel and adventure. It eats at me and I must go. I have sat at home too much, looking at the same old things. I sit watching others who are out on Friday nights, or on vacation while I desire to go do something as well.        Continue reading “Desire for Travel and Adventure”

Our First Love

I see folks on Facebook talking about praying to God to heal the land, and to stop the evil in the land, and to drive away pestilence and all of that. I’ve heard it for years. How exactly do you think God will do this? Are you really ready for it? Maybe the problem isn’tContinue reading “Our First Love”

Remembering

 I was walking downtown at night, when I got the strong smell of whisky in my nose. It was over powering, and brought back memories of puking that stuff up a thousand times. It was Southern Comfort. The smell was so recognizable I could almost taste it.             I have not drunkContinue reading “Remembering”

You Go With You

Here’s a lesson I learned while my life was falling apart. I had been abandoned after driving my family away. I drank and drank and partied and fought. I was arrested time and time again, and that’s who I was.             I had been drinking and decided to go to the bowlingContinue reading “You Go With You”

Telephone and Address Required

This is going to sound crazy, but I want to be truthful and straight about it. I really hate when government or business organizations require that I provide a street address and/or a phone number. This has been a recurring theme in my life for years and I’m honestly tired of it. I don’t wantContinue reading “Telephone and Address Required”

Happy Place

I was asleep, and in my happy place. I’m not sure where that is, but it is a place where I finally relax. It is a place where everything is ok. Where there are no problems. I was there, and I was happy; until suddenly I was pounced on. I was literally pounced on byContinue reading “Happy Place”

Beating Her

I was working at my desk in the morning.When I heard some banging and pounding,from below me. The neighbors were fighting again.But, this was different.This was screaming. It was the sound of punching through flesh.The sound of slapping skinThat sound of hands raised in defense,while a fist plows through to break a nose. Pounding, pounding,Continue reading “Beating Her”

Dead Beat Dad No More

It’s Father’s Day, and we must prepare for all the Facebook posts where single mothers call themselves, mom and dad. This attitude should be a perfect example of why Dad is not around any more. Now, before you jump on me and say “It’s about the children!!” You must realize that I understand that, andContinue reading “Dead Beat Dad No More”

Failure To Whom?

They say we fail;losers extraordinaire. By whose laws? By whose rules? Not yours or mine, that’s for sure. They own the world,they make the rules.They set the bar,and make us lose. They need slaves,and someone to rule. They need trash men,and janitors to clean,their palaces of steel They need to keep us dumb;to beat usContinue reading “Failure To Whom?”
