a golden door leading to the ultimate platinum card.
Art expresses the emotions
of an individual at that exact moment in time.
Adultery...sex on the razor’s edge.
Free advice comes with a price.

pilfering lobbyist’s rants for corporate greed.

the essence of eternal existence.

to survive a slanderous political hit.

mortal man is the creator of evil’s worth.

Oceans deep blue and white majestic peaks;
golden grasslands and evergreen forests;
fresh air and bountiful wetlands;
this is the earth I once knew.
I once was a spiritual man...I use to drink’em well.
My dreams placed fear into the hearts of foes,
and healed my mortal woes.
Life without faith is a life not lived.
Friend or enemy, comrade or foe,
we all drink from the same cask...we all travel the same road.
Fame for the ego...money for work well done.
The theory of man’s evolution is an insult to women.
What existed before Creation and the Cosmos?
(That answer is beyond human comprehension.)
To me, heaven is the end of suffering & need;
a place where the immortal soul is freed.
To have the ability to succeed
is to do whatever it takes to proceed.
The solutions for today will come tomorrow...
history is yesterday’s sorrow.
