Walking Alone 

Walking alone

In my silent dream

No voice

No hope

Can not see

Can not feel

A joy

A curse

A time to fall

As my ashes scatter

Just another lost echo

In life

I have no choice

Life has come

And exited my life

Lowering The Bar

Do you know why all retail giants are screwed? No, it’s not Amazon. It’s because all retail giants set the bar sooo fucking low. They set it low the moment they started to let the thought of “We can pay people less if they don’t have college degrees!” Don’t believe me, walk into any retail store and ask said Supervisor or Store Managers if they have a college degree in business, and the answer may shock you. But the bigger shocker might be none of them actually never finished college. 

I can already hear some of you say “Just because they didn’t finish college doesn’t mean they’re not fit to lead!” True, 1 out of 100 might be gifted with management skills off the bat, but looking at retail as a whole, you might be utterly shock how many of those passed along end up doing more harm to the environment around them. If you breed the ideology of unintelligent into said world, then don’t be shocked to see the end result.

The real victim here are college students. Think about it, if you worked so hard to earn a degree and then end up getting reject because they see you as too “High Maintenance” and probably the person doing the interview is someone who didn’t put 99% of the effort of getting a degree you have, so they kick you around and tell you to look elsewhere. Or the old clich√© words said by many “If they graduated college why are they here, ha ha.” Said by someone who’s highest point was fucking one of their teenage co-workers.

The bar has been set low that’s it’s just sad now. College students are being forced to be lower class citizen’s in the eyes of the work force. The good jobs have been made a members only club, so if you don’t know a guy who knows a guy you might be stuck taking orders from Tom who out of high school worked 4 yrs in retail, kissed ass, got drunk with the supervisors and now is your boss.

The funny thing in all this, is that retail Giants keep asking themselves why are we failing? My response to that would be, you get what you pay for.

Lost And Gone

Should of said your name

Should of held you close

We needed no introduction

We sparked

Glowing hearts in the murky night

Knew the groove , knew the curves

No way we could miss a step

That was us

That was beautiful

Maybe I dropped 

Maybe I let it slip

Now we’re far, now we’re gone

All I hold

Is the image of you

In my dreams

In the night skies

Knowing there’s no more glowing in the dark for my heart.

Farewell To The

People say to me

“You look like death

No one wants you”

What a wreck

I just don’t understand

I have a different view

Floating to the unknown

As I’m branded 

With labels I never knew

Is it fine if I don’t care

If I try to escape

And lose myself 

Pretend to be well

As I ponder the steps

That took me back to this place

Will that be alright with you?

Too late I moved on from you.

Miss My Life

Miss my life

Miss my home

Miss those simple things

I held close to my heart

Before I had to see

Before I had to leave

Let this life run its course

And find myself standing in this strange world

Dead on the floor

Six feet in the ground

Feeling this world pass me by

While I lay there like a block of stone

Nothing to say

Nothing to show for
