I have been lax in posting...

What is our world coming to?
I wonder this everyday. The news is full of horrors committed by humans against humans. Why do we do this, why do we hurt others; an answer may never be known. We have people who study the complexities of the human brain, but none has discovered the answers to those questions. They do not know what makes us tick; what makes humans carryout such atrocities against each other…
My sixteen-year-old daughter and her friend were sitting in a Wal-Mart parking lot and a man walks up and sticks a gun in their face! How close did my child and her friend come to dying that night? I have wondered so many moments since then…
What gives anyone the authority to take that which does not belong to them or to terrorize other human beings, children?
Are they on drugs? Are they just too damn lazy to get out and work to earn a living the same as we do; or do they simply get a thrill from the terror that they inflict upon others, the thrill of the kill?
It tends to make one reach into their own darkness, which lives within them.
It tends to make one consider vigilante justice, doesn’t it, or will they face a greater judgement one day, as they stand before the judgement of God?
"I can't dislike you, but I will say this to you: you haven't got long before you are all going to kill yourselves, because you are all crazy and you can project it back at me, but I am only what lives inside each and every one of you." (By: Charles Manson) was he right? Is he, what lives inside of each and every one of us?
"We're not in Wonderland anymore Alice"
(From my Dark Side)
Ah yes, I am an emblem of insanity, violence, and the macabre, musical Assassins, wielding swords that cut away the cancers…? More than likely, they make them grow!
“I still have my family Charlie boy. Do you have yours?”
No of course, not; they run Helter Skelter here and there, to the wail of moonlit wolves trying to escape the insanity in their heads; they should all be laying dead somewhere, if it were up to me.
What did you call me? "People who live in glass houses should not throw stones" You epitomize a dirty pot, one that calls the kettle black...
Retribution's petty theft, can one apologize for reality...
"Why dost thou behold the thorn that is in thy brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in thine own eye?"
Welcome inside the dark, damp, walls that linger within my mind, sculpting non-dimensional realities, dampening this poet’s stalwart dream, giving credence to the toad.
He came, he took and he left, but what did he leave behind? Did he leave frightened children, or did he change them forever?
They will never look upon their world the same again, not through innocent eyes. They will look and see what our world has become, a hellacious hellhole that is growing larger with each day that passes.
“Am I afraid of dying?” hell, dying is easy. Living is what scares the shit out of me.
Deep from within enigmatic vacant stares, they hide... These children who come at you with guns and knives, they are your children; you taught them. I did not teach them, I just tried to help them stand up.
“I did not teach them, I just tried to help them stand up.” (Charles Manson) is that not what he said. Did we raise them up to become soldiers in the Devils army?
Look around you people. Look at those who roam the streets, those with no compassion for human life or no respect for the older generation… these, will one day be raising other generations… generation’s that will one-day rule our world. Our world is being handed over to the Devil, in a hand basket and I fear for our children and our grandchildren, for they are the ones who will have to live in this world.
Do we discipline our children? Has the governments taken away our rights to parent our children…
I see it everyday. You go into the grocery store, you see children yelling at their parents and pitching fits to get their way, to get what they want, and the parents are afraid. They are afraid that if they discipline their child that the government will punish them. Did God not say to teach them in the way and they will stay in the way?
What happened to respect? Did it just fly out the window? Of course, there is cruelty in the world. There are people raising children who are not fit to raise them. There are people who do atrocious things to children and they should be taken out and strung up, but a good moral parent has a right to discipline a child or that child will grow up believing that it is their right to be, say, and do whatever they please, and the hell with what anyone else says, believes or does… we have certain inalienable rights set forth by our constitution, to freedom. Freedom of speech, and a right to live free, to protest that which we do not approve and not be sought after, but those rights, the right to teach your children respect of authority have been thrown out the window!
Parents are afraid that if they spank their child in the middle of Wal-Mart for pitching a fit or screaming and hollering at them that they will go to jail! Children are told that their parents cannot spank them, or DHR will be called. Now those same children are toting guns to class and shooting teachers and other students, knives and stabbing teachers and other students! Is that what they expected when they took those rights from parents?
Let that child run free and express themselves... Violence begets violence, yes, maybe, but discipline begets a well raised child!
No, I fear, we are not in Wonderland anymore Alice.
