Awaiting The Rains (A Stranger In My Home)

There is always that hidden anticipation in all of us........

You hear and feel the thunder......you see the clouds moving in, getting thicker and darker

And you wait.

I am doing that today.  I need some nature to make me feel welcome home.  I haven't felt that yet but that is my fault.

I feel only nature can do that for me.

In time I will feel like this is my home......but for now it's just another place to lay my head down and think and ponder.......and try to understand what path led to me to where I am now.........

The Bottle and the Damage Done

The Bottle and the Damage Done
(Apologies to Neil Young)

I caught you knocking' at my workshop door
I love you, baby, can I have some more?
Ooh, ooh, the damage done
I hit the city and I lost my plan
I watched the bottle take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done
I sing the song because I love the man
I know that some of you don't understand
Alcohol to keep from running out
I've seen the bottle and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every drunk is like a setting' sun

And So It Begins……..Or Ends

And So It Begins……..Or Ends

I knew it was coming
I saw it, I felt it, I lived it and I caused it

I didn’t start out this way in my youth
I always looked for the positive
In every situation

Starting over is never easy
In anyone’s life
But I am there now

And I just have to accept
What I’ve done to myself
And everyone around me

It was not my intention
To harm anyone in any way
But I have done that

And I have to live with that…..

For the rest of my life……..

Never Pictured Me Here......

Never Pictured Me Here.......

That I’d end up here…..
Alone and on my own
But it’s coming

I am a survivor
And will pull through this
Eventually, I hope

3 decades is a long time
And those years
Will always be in my memories

Fall is here
And another change is coming
But not the change I expected

Yes, I am hurting…….
