Travel Documents pt.1This seemed a fairly easy way to keep those of you that are interested up to speed with things in China while not filling up the inboxes of everyone else! haha
So Sunday morning, after arriving the previous night from 4 consecutive gigs in other states, I made it to at the tiny airport in my home city of Shreveport LA to find that (of course) it was overbooked! This was a wonderful start to my already convoluted journey to my final destination – Chengdu, Sichuan, China – that involved 4 flights, 4 bus rides, and countless taxis and subway exchanges.
Well I rescheduled first leg of the trip within enough time to make my second flight out of Atlanta, GA without messing up any of my other flights...miraculous!
After a quick (and I mean very quick) layover, I boarded my first ever double-decker flight!
The routing of these flights, by the way, made absolutely NO sense whatsoever lol I went from Shreveport,
CuriousWe were the great onesCurious3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The adventurers, the strivers, the curious
It all started with me way up where none would look
And I was crazy. I was na´ve. I was curious
So I looked over the edge
And I will never be able to say what I saw
I never knew anything like it
I couldn’t turn away
And I fell
My view switched to my home and the new place
Back and forth all that I could see
And then… I experienced it
This new place
And I knew all that it would bring
And I knew all that I had caused
And I died
I only got the one experience
Never again would I feel it
I wasted my life for an instant
And more would follow
They would land
They would die
Because I was first
Everything was brought on by me
All because I fell
All because I was stupid
All because I was curious

A Cold HeartCold,A Cold Heart2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It seeps into your soul,
It freezes there,
It turns your heart to ice,
So you can never love.
It can warm your soul,
Melts the ice,
Or shatters it,
So you can never believe.
To simply have faith,
In love or life,
To open your heart,
Can sometimes break your soul.
It is more than heart,
More than hope,
It is sneaky and cruel,
It freezes life,
It causes death,
Can you be saved?
…No one really knows…
These HandsThese hands of mineThese Hands2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
were meant to
build, repair and to mend.
But unlike Midas'
all they touch
turns to dust in the end.
These hands of mine
were supposed to
heal, support and sustain.
Yet all they bring
to other souls
is suffering and pain.
These hands of mine
were made to
love, caress and to hold.
Still they push away
those close to me
as I grow lonely, bitter - cold.
These hands of mine
were meant to
nurture, care and to protect.
Unable to oblige
the tightening of the noose
shall be their final act.

How I stopped dreamingWhen I was but a kidHow I stopped dreaming2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I could dream of a future
bright and fair and happy
who wanted to it to be.
I wanted to follow those dreams
and be one who brought forth change
to a world that so longed for it.
"You can't do that", they said,
shaking their heads and waving their hands.
"You're just a disobedient little kid
with a simple mind from a simple family.
A working man for a father and a housewife for a mother
what could you possibly achieve?"
They told me to stand down and that was what I did.
When I was a youth
I would still dream of a future
a little brighter than the present
of things I could do that at least some people
would come to remember some day.
I wanted to act upon those dreams
for it was better to try and fail than
not having tried at all.
"You won't get anywhere", they said,
snickering and laughing behind my back.
"You don't have the kind of money to get
the education you need, and neither does your family.
You should just do what your forefathers did
THE WEAPON OF TRUTH Part 1 The Battle For Truth"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." ~ Isaiah 59:14THE WEAPON OF TRUTH Part 1 The Battle For Truth2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
This verse clearly illustrates what is actually happening in today's churches. Many seem to throw Truth out of the window all in the name of "the 21st century" or "tolerance", and other excuses. But very few, will even stand for God and hold on to the Real Truth.
In this study I want to begin talking about "The Weapon of Truth." Truth is one of the most powerful weapons we possess in the spiritual arsenal God has given to us to deal with the enemy. But unfortunately, truth has fallen in the streets and has been replaced by the lies of the devil. It is time for God's people to arise with the weapon of truth and to go forth in the power of His Spirit pleading for truth. (Isaiah 59:4-5)
Right now, we live in a culture and an era that is inundated with falsehood and lies. Not many people are even pleading for truth, and

EinherjarHere I stand with axe and blade, waiting for my final fate,Einherjar2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Facing foes with strange beliefs and no love for gods of yore,
A cross they bear, right on their crest, think what they do is for the best,
Sparkling eyes right full of zest, eternal rest is waiting for
Each and every one of them, lest we fail the mighty Thor -
When we strike them like a boar.
Sky and hearts are filled with thunder, resolve of theirs is torn asunder
Even as my brothers fall and our numbers wane in battle
Steel meets steel, flesh and bone, through blood the soil turns red in tone
My brethren felled I stand alone, lone I am yet full of mettle,
Burning eyes and heart of stone, clenching tighter wood and metal -
Death and glory brings this battle.
For every strike and blow I deliver, a dozen more of them come hither,
As my blood spills to the ground, there is no fear, there is no pain.
For I know we'll be remembered long, in poem, legend and in song,
Valhalla was calling all along, along we'll go where Aesir reign

As it falls to the ground.
All you hear,
Is the quiet plop,
As it splatters on the ground,
Its secret gone.
Flowing down the drain,
Soaking into roots,
Spreading into a pond,
Now one secret in a million.
No one knows the secret,
That raindrop held,
For it is now one drop in a sea,
Its secret unheard.
What has that single drop of water seen?
Has it seen the dinosaurs?
Did it soak the back of a Saber Tooth cat?
Did a cave man stand beneath it?
Did George Washington battle under that drop?
Did it wet the head of Hitler?
Cry as the Towers fell?
Mourn the troops of the many wars of the lands?
Who knows what secrets that drop has seen.
What fears, what joy,
For that drop,
As it fell to Earth,
Has seen the good and the bad,
The sad and the horrid,
The happy and the joyous,
That one little drop,
So often ignored,
Has seen the world a million times over.

Szülői elvárás savesője rám hull,

Mi lesz, ha feladom? Talán letagadnak,

Mért hittem magamat pótolhatatlannak?
Mindig lesz egy másik, aki nálam is jobb.
Mi van, ha feladom? Fölösleges leszek,
szüleim szégyene, álmot hajkurászó,
mások nyakán élő mindörökké-gyerek,
kiskockás füzetben érzelmekkel játszó.
Hogyha nem adom fel, talán belebukom,
kerékbe tör majd a waldorftalan világ,
a sors kemény keze tengervíz alá nyom,
szememben elhervad a sötét fényvirág,
de az is lehet, hogy én leszek a győztes,

If only I was one of them, but now all I am is a shadow,
Playing my guitar in in the waves of dawn,
The warmth of today, the dew on my lawn,
The stars are still visible and they glitter,
Asking me to join them sooner or later.
My hammock sways in the tropical glow,
Forget about father north, the crystal snow,
I'll spend my last years in this paradise,
But these fingers I clutch come with a price.
Its time to leave as time takes me away,
My rosey cheeks are paler today,
Am I old dying once again?
The pattern repeats itself in the universe for all men.

No but seriously, cars are the devil and if you don't need one, then don't be sad because you are still living in a land of rainbows and sunshine where the word "transmission" doesn't gives you hotflashes, make you shit yourself and curl in a ball for ten hours but not before crying into ice cream until it melts. [Just to clear it up, I didn't shit myself, but I did do the other things.]
I learned a few interesting things about cars since mine decided to play the "holy fucking shit god christ what is that noise?" game with me.
1. Don't wait even five minutes if your car even looks at you wrong. Smack it in its dumb rebellious face, put it on a leash and take it to the car vet pronto. [also works with children

Watch in sadness as all others see you in awe...

That you wish to be free?
Don't they hear?
Your cries of release?
Do they not feel?
Your dying warmth of your small body?
Gazing around at those people...
That don't seem to care...
I play with my fingers in worry as I keep my gaze at you...
I go up to you and hold your barrier...
My hands sticking to its glued pressure...
I can get you out, I stutter...
I can get you free...
As if I knew, I saw the smile behind your dew drop tears...
I pull and twist at the golden forced lid...
Held down by its greed...
My body was weak and crippled but I didn't give in...
I used all my strength to save you...
Falling back, the jar dropped from my hands as the lid finally pulled away...
