It Was Fun

Riding around, top down, under the sun.

Your smile, your style, you could have been the one.

It wasn’t love but it was fun.

Laughter fades, sunlight turns to rain, look what we’ve become.

Driving away, leaving me behind, it can’t be undone.

Looking back now, I see clearly somehow.

It wasn’t love but it was fun.

Here’s to a New Year

Lovers kissing, people dancing, resolutions through the champagne. 

Countdown, three, two, one, ball drops, a new year just begin.

————————-

Do I have any resolutions this year? Sure I do.

Will I keep them? I hope so.

Losing weight and getting back into yoga is one of the minor resolutions. However, I can continue working on weight and flexibility as I Jon hunt, pay fines, and get my driver’s license back.

There’s probably a lot more I could resolve to do this year, but keeping it simple means less stress. For me, too much stress will cause me to fail or give up.

Little changes throughout the year, I will be writing them down. I’ll also have a post of reflections from the past year. 

I intend to write more, begin submitting my poetry on a more serious level and I am trying to begin freelance writing. 

Feel free to share your resolutions in the comments. Any advice on beginning as a freelance writer is appreciated as well.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Forgive and Forget 

​”Was it you that killed me, or did I kill you?”

Abel answered, “I don’t remember anymore; here we are, together, like before.”

“Now I know that you have truly forgiven me,” Cain said, “because forgetting it forgiving. I, too, will try to forget.”

Muhammad Ali – 1977

God is watching me. God don’t praise me because I beat Joe Frazier. God don’t give nothing about Joe Frazier. God don’t care nothing about England or America as far as we aware of. He wants to know how do we treat each other, how do we help each other. So I’m going to dedicate my life to using my name and popularity to helping charities, helping people, uniting people…..we need somebody in the world to help us all make peace. So when I die, if there’s a heaven, I want to see it.
