    Pharisee confused

    My family you would abuse

    Pharisee blind

    Others you would bind

    Pharisee inebriated

    From the truth you deviated

    Pharisee apostate

    You'll not see heaven's gate

    Pharisee insane

    It is death you gain

    Pharisee dead

    Gehenna has your head

    A poet I am not

    But I'll give it a shot

    In 1990 I swallowed a line

    Just ahead is a perfect time

    With pandas and lions and nobody sick

    Man I must have been really, really thick

    To believe all that trash and live by it is crazy

    My thinking was dulled and my vision became hazy

    But all of a sudden I began to wake up

    No more will I drink from that poison cup

    They can keep all the bullshit, and all of the hate

    We're outta there now and boy it feels great!!

    As far back as I can recall

    I lived a life with back to wall

    Running scared, trying to fly

    Somewhere between the earth and sky.

    From the darkened sky, a star did shine

    With radiance sweet, and a promise divine

    A lifetime of service, and the light shall be ours

    But the star has faded, the sweetness soured.

    All that is life will also pass

    So I live it now and live it fast

    Sure of foot, flying high

    At home between the earth and sky.

    I Left.

    Therefore,

    I am,

    Not.

    45 years in

    18 years out

    Life has been happy

    Old friends still in, a miserable lot

    Don't really look back

    Just wish the wasted time I had not

    I discovered this old post from back in 2014.
    It is quite remarkable how much creative energy is expressed in these SIX PAGES!

    Well worth browsing again!
