Manjaro - Deepin by Tuishimi Manjaro - Deepin :icontuishimi:Tuishimi 1 1
Literature
Curious
Dulled with alcohol and misuse
My thoughts are rusty caterpillars,
Metamorpheses incomplete.
Like tarnished silver my value holds,
Not for my intrinisic nature,
But for my antiquity.
Sometimes when I close my eyes
I see the universe, no, I see the inverse,
Dark stars crossing a bright void.
I am curious.

Literature
One of my sins...
I am a giant
and I don't mean in a good way
two hundred fifty five pounds of nothing.
I am dying more quickly because of this
unable to keep up with the toxins I create.
Valiant efforts are put forth by my glands
but they cannot compete with my mind.
It seeks to fill the emptiness with food.
I am very empty.
I eat a lot.
Jesus died for me, for this...
How can I ever repay him on this track?
Were I God, to say I was a disappointment would be...
an understatement.
Still Love conquers and I shall endeavour.
Lord don't give up on me.

Literature
Facades
Don't parlay me with broken hearts
Don't marry me into Descartes
I don't want to know
I don't need to know
Arrow doesn't really shoot straight
It carries just a little weight
I already know
You already know
So let me tell you one more time
This world isn't yours or mine
Truth never lies
But for tarnished eyes.

Literature
Confused
Did my walk end early?
Where am I?
Scratching my arm absentmindedly
I turned to see where I had been
And saw only a cracked walkway.
Scratch scratch scratch and...
That incessant buzzing!
Why won't the insects leave me alone?
Swatting at air I start walking
And stumble.
I was going somewhere
But I cannot remember where.
Clenching my jaw I glance about
With a sense of dread on a sunny day,
And I scratch.
I remember when I was young
And thought death was an eternity away...
The air is thick,
My arm is rubber,
And I am lost.

Literature
Self-Monitor
I didn't mean to debride her last remnant of self,
Trying to shake the sticky flesh from the grater
(It didn't come off, I had to scrub and scrub and scrub)
I realized what I had done...
Was anyone looking?
I no longer doubt the Appalachians eroded
One drop of rain at a time,
And that a soul can be scraped from a heart
One stroke at a time.

Literature
The Trail...
As the daylight waxes I find myself winding through a verdant fen.
Between the leaves I can see the sky, blue thread through green it wends.
It carries all my hopes and dreams that some day this journey ends.
But as I wander along this road the sun begins to set,
And even though I can see the end, the end is never met.
It stretches on, an abandoned road where the mighty men once played,
Where machines of war and steel and grit have become a distant shade.
But in my eyes it is nothing more than my own denial made.

Literature
Without, I die...
Tree branches caught in whirling walls of aether,
Snapped from their trunk, brittle and inflexible,
My faith is weak.
Evidence is an unending heat
Scorching doubt and worry...
But I, I apply protection;
Without life giving sap
Leaves will whither and die,
Flowers will never form,
And I will rot.
The branch needs the trunk,
The trunk roots in Jesus,
And I need the Creator.

Literature
dArama?
Scramble-scrape of puppy claws on tile
As the red ball rolls past,
Upsetting the quorum
Of toes.
"Oomph!"
Helicoptor in a wind storm
One hundred, eighty degrees later,
Sights locked
He lunges.
"Yap yap yap!"
[That's MY red ball!]

Literature
Harlot No More
For am I not beloved?
Jericho had to fall and with it
Foul men of foul deeds.
The blood of children was nothing
To them.
They lived for the body, not the mind.
I lived for the body, not the mind.
But where there was fear there was hope.
Hope became faith.
Faith saved me.
I may not know
What may come...
But I know my God
And I trust Him
Not the future.

Dulled with alcohol and misuse
My thoughts are rusty caterpillars,
Metamorpheses incomplete.

Like tarnished silver my value holds,
Not for my intrinisic nature,
But for my antiquity.

Sometimes when I close my eyes
I see the universe, no, I see the inverse,
Dark stars crossing a bright void.

I am curious.
So my poetry is/has been lacking of course.

Work has been... a bear for 3 years.  It has finally started picking up and I am actually feeling good about it again.

At home I grew tired of Windows and Mac OS again... so I went back to linux.  I can do 90% of what I want to do with Linux, and 100% of what I NEED to do.  The only things that lack is my huge STEAM game library.  Not so many games work on linux... but I CAN PLAY MY FAVORITES.  :D  Star Stable Online, Diablo 3, and a number of other games (like Borderlands and such) work on linux/steam.  I can also create videos for Youtube and stuff like that...

But for the things I NEED to do, write documents, spreadsheets, presentations, coding, etc.  All of that is covered in spades (generally more and better options than Windows or Mac OS) with Linux-based OS's.

So currently I am running a gorgeous, efficient and somewhat scary linux OS called Solus.  It started as a hobby OS for someone, grew into something much more special.  Solus is not sourced from other linux distributions.  It is put together with love from a small team.  It has running updates which are good and bad.  Also since the team is small and they are trying to achieve their own goals with the OS, it can change somewhat drastically from time to time.  For example the homegrown UI called Budgie (like Cinnamon or Mate) is written to be Gnome-compatible on the GTK3+ library.  However the lead developer / project owner has stated that he is starting to rewrite it, this time using Qt+ libraries!  Honestly I cannot wait... looking forward to seeing how the OS morphs over time.

It has been pretty stable so far except where I go app-crazy and start installing all sorts of libraries and such.  I've managed to break shotcut which is my tool of choice for creating videos.  So until I get that squared away I will have to fudge around to create decent videos for my youtube channel.

Anyway, God bless you all and I pray you are all making your way through this crazy world in tact.
So now that I have shifted back to linux, while I found Elementary OS to be gorgeous... it was felt like another "built on top of ubuntu" distros.  I wanted a little more... something a bit more edgy so I rebuilt with Solus linux.  Nearly as gorgeous, and definitely a little more edgy.  :)
