Live Hard, Work Free

I am not certain
The android closed the curtain for me.
Is the curtain closed for me and/or -
Do I need human touch?

I think too little
View too much, new shoes enough
New views are tough, new bruise from noose
I loosen up

My tie
For work
I am not! ready
To die

Clarity

I am
The one
The son
The man

The dad
To be
The dream
I had

The one
Who sees
In blur
In streaks

Of good
Of bad
Of that
I weep

It's sad
To see.

In a few hours. Here's something to keep yall occupied. :P Classics.

Best Story I Ever Wrote

I just wrote the best story I've ever written.

At least that's what it felt like. I was about to embark on a new adventure, on writing weekly during the course of a full year for a creative project a Newgrounder recently initiated, where users contributed their stories; users voted on which choices would continue the story. I had one chapter written, around ten pages of relatively large text (as it should be to be readable in screen-reader format), three potential alternatives and a a plethora of ideas for the future expansion of the story. But, the 'publisher' just wasn't having it, he just wasn't digging it, he barked at me and told me the story was dumb, didn't make-sense and seemed to have been written by an amateur.

I wasn't expecting that. I was expecting something along the lines of Holy shit this is fucking awesome. The idea is new. The plot's just bubbling with subtle references to a distant future utopia, new scenarios and sceneries and an intriguing cast of characters! There's an insane amount of potential for this to evolve.

Maybe not exactly along those lines, but I was expecting something positive. Because as of yet, I've only ever received positive response on my work. I doubt my talent all the same, I'm scared of feedback, I stall as long as I possibly can before I open up any textual analysis I'm sent and read it (this applies to work I have high expectations of myself, not the things I spew out in surges of inspiration and don't expect to be that great - like the poetry you can currently find on this site)... but that feedback it's usually surprisingly positive and my ego gets a short-lived boost that spurs me to keep writing.

That didn't happen this time. But... I'm still writing? Actually more so now than I was before I received this negative response. And I'm still really confident about my idea, about the scenario I mapped out. I'm even confident about how I mapped it out. It came to me like an epiphany, an idea that hovered above all others, to an author - a great invention - an incentive for further creative thought (as if I'd made a computer), and it held a new strain of creation, a new world just waiting to be described and detailed.

Maybe it was too big a world to be detailed. Maybe that's what brought it crashing down.

Or maybe that user I shall not name is an asshole with no sense for story-telling (he doesn't write himself, does he?), maybe this just isn't his type of story, maybe it isn't a type of story most people would appreciate, maybe I actually fucked up on introducing the plot; maybe I could've written something better. I don't know. I know I'm taking this too personally and if the receiver of my rage is reading - yes, you - know that this is just my form of venting, it's your call and I respect it but fucking hell I hate it. I'm not used to failure. To grow though, I need to be. Through the mind of a wise man: we need to place ourselves in situations we are uncomfortable so that we improve as human beings.

I wasn't expecting this to be such a situation. But it was, and I've improved. Even if it's harsh critique I'll take it to heart.

I'll keep writing the story anyway, that's why I'm not detailing the plotline here. I believe in it, and in a way it's good I was denied this task since this gives me more free time to invest in my current projects, and no potential worries of how my schedule might pan out during summer, and most of all: it gave me a preview of what I am most likely going to be getting a lot of as an aspiring author: refusals, denial, adversity and mistrust. Getting recognized is, and should be, a battle.

Free Way Info & Cold Graves

The old times were better than
The new times that bettered them
Outgrew times we did, and we view
Times like letters sent

Like shoeshine we polish
Our crude views demolish
Well-due is our truth
Our views we abolish

We fuse with our knowledge
The old times are news
We pay dues - say our truce
Our brew is our collage

Wisdom for better days
Spent on a better facebook page
And our names on our graves
Are our fame when we drain

From this world, and the world
Is the same, our wisdom - attained

Flappy Birds The Manger

I wrote another poem - the other night
In my other light - one fifty five
I have two lights by the bedside - one is bright
The next one is white - this one feels alive

It's yellow like the sunlight, projected, what does that mean?
I'm eating crappy pastries thinking that I'm happy
Yapping like a stranger, I feel I should be napping
Cause I am a ranger but I'm all out of power

Reality turned sour, it hit me like a fable
Taught me there were devils, bought me my own angel
Of this water I'm lapping, cracking on my pastries
Anything can happen, now I know how taste feels
