A great commotion,

passionate and often violent;

the way things go around here

almost every time.

And it’s no big surprise

to see the apathy inside

so many that I see

and even in my own life.


There might as well be not tomorrow,

if I can’t find a way through today.

There’s so much out there that I don’t know,

when there’s no more to learn, then I don’t want to be.

Won’t lay down,

be force fed,

by television – my decision

to live and learn outside the system,

find the wisdom we’ve been given.

Don’t want my destiny to be 

persuaded by some cold – dead fuck.

So few find their way through,

this bloodthirsty, brain dead flock.


Surviving long enough to be yourself

is half the battle in the war.

To know the knowledge – seek the breath

and keep on living until death,

or ’til I ain’t learning no more.


HG – 2000-2005
