Millennial Rising


.

[Untitled]: photo by wiissa, 25 March 2013


When we reach the threshold of our aspirations
We know that the uplifting beam of generational self approval will fall over us
Slip quietly beneath us without our really knowing it
And transport us as if by magic carpet
Into a challenging yet inspiring new dimension in which
We will take on the amazing ability to stand upright under our own power
And reach up with fingertips at least partially extended
And maybe even almost touch the ceiling
So as to change the world

Lust for Life


.

Cowboy (Olympic Blvd., L.A.): photo by Michaelj1998. 23 August 2013


In life
even the emptiest day has something in it
whereas after life
even the fullest of days has
nothing in it
becomes a sort of mantra
after a while
as the empty days and nights
go by...wa-hoo!...yee-haw!
