The freedom of poetic license.
Cicero (106 BC - 43 BC)

Inspired by a friend I opened some old journals to look at my early writings. I was surprised at the amount of poetry and song writing. Here is just one funny example.

The DJ rambles in to the air
Love's a game - life's not fair
Homeless humans sleep in stairways
Needles float on the ocean waves
He says, "Watch the lifeless walk the streets"
Don't look up and never speak
Here’s to those who rush the avenue
As I listen, I long to say to you,
If you lose the hope seed
What’s there left to believe?
Momma, here's what my eyes have seen
Nations together in war we rise
Children carry guns and we're surprised?
But the cursing in congress, it's all right
All's okay if it's out of sight
Hugs not Drugs! Now go watch cartoons
Yesterday's crisis is today's ONLY news.
One more mistake and it's over and done
There are no stars, but "reach for the sun"
As I listen, I long to say to you,
If you lose the hope seed
What’s there left to believe?
Momma, here's what my eyes have seen

I wrote it in the early 90s. hee hee

Wow. So you've been writing a long time it seems. This is really neat.

I've seen "early writings" on blogs before, and it hits me as strange, I have no "early writings."

I just started writing seriously about 7 months ago. Never wanted to write, nor did I write, as a kid. I feel like I'm weird that way. LOL.

Thanks for sharing this one, gzusfreek.

Lrush - not weird, unique! I've heard your stuff and your gifted -- early writings or no! I'd forgotten about a lot of mine. And I lost a lot of it too. No matter. I was a different person then and a different writer. So for me, really I'm just starting too!

And, sadly, it only gets truer as politics in this counrty progress (regress?).

Thanks for sharing!
