The Blonde One Was Called Freedom

Your Life is Your Life. Know It While You Have It.

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.


there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.


it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.


the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but


you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.


your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

What a fabulous midweek. The weather in Chicago is great, I’ve felt more like a responsible human as of late, and I have come to realize that I can’t make as much of a difference as I’d like from my current position.

All of which has got me thinking Coastal.

I’m plotting out a new future. God offers chances, you just have to know them and take them.
