Heartbreak Funeral

There is days I still think about you, even when I do not want to. I moved on so long ago – the day you broke my heart in two. You disappeared like a panther in the darkness out of the blue. And I still think about why you had to abandon me so soon.

We had our moments, you traveled long ways – just to hear me play what you knew I wouldn’t ever say. You left me hanging on and on, you left me high and dry. I stopped loving you so long ago – why is there still days I can’t seem to get you off my mind?

I was lost in a red rock desert for you. But like a timber wolf, you vanished without giving me a single clue. There was a point in time I would have walked through fire for you if it meant you were on the other side. Why, oh why – did you have to me cry? I cannot turn back time – and still, I wait for the day you forever leave my mind. The heartbreak you caused me wasn’t right. It’s a shame you left so soon – you should’ve told me, instead of causing me that pain and strife. For it cut me up like washed up sea glass in the river of demise.

I knew it wasn’t going to be easy – the day I finally decided to move on. I was left no choice – for you made it clear you and me would never be alright. As I strain to move forward and forever remove you from my mind – I won’t let the days go by. You were not the one, it wasn’t meant to be. And I will forget about you – but not as easily as you forgot about me.

Christmas

Christmastime is near, no need to fear – join in on the lights, the presents, the red nosed reindeer.

A feeling of joy that surrounds every young girl and little boy the day after Santa arrives and gifts of them new toys. The spirit of giving, as He once gave to us – his one and only son to die on a cross.

Every kid’s favorite childhood experience, even better than summer camp. Yours truly, I declare as those precious moments travel on a ramp.

The snow falls down and brings them feelings of peace and inner sun rays. As if a love potion as been cast onto them, Santa teaches them how important it is to behave.

With his mystical powers he’ll fly on his sleigh, and give gifts to all of the good children who obey. Iris, I tell you Christmas is the best holiday. With snowmen, and cookies, and fun forever to stay.

Nite {Sunrise on the Other Side}

There is a sea of emotions swirling in my heart every time that I look up at the stars. The driftwood clashes on the shore, creating the calm before the storm.

I think to myself I will never make it out. When I’m old, I will wonder how these thoughts came about. I’m like a rusty wrench, useless and abused. Obsolete and tortured, falling down is my cue. Despite all of this, I find beauty in this world.

Amongst all of the pain in this life, there is always something good waiting on the other side. Keep your head held up high, dream of ways to say goodbye.

As sweet as ginger root, as precious as a sand dollar – the hot lava running though my veins begs of me to take my chances and holler. The days are long and strange, it’s true – but there is not a doubt in my mind that I will make due. The sea throws these stones together for me to make of use. For I believe there is a Promise Land for me and all of you.

Grand Plan

Sometimes I question whether or not I have a grand plan, or if I’m just going with the flow – seeing what life places in my hand. I do not know what my future holds. It as if there is an iron gate in my way keeping me from discovering what I will become before I grow old.

I have big aspirations and big dreams. Although some days the bricks collapse on me, I know that every day is a new day – much like the waves that crash on the beach from the sea.

A whirlpool occurs in my heart because of my fear of the unknown. I feel like I am lost in a cabin in the woods that is not my home, with all of the doors closed. I may never have a grand plan after all. Like rotting red clay, sometimes I feel I am destined to fall.

Ignore the hate and focus on the love. For the ratio of that spectrum is a miracle from above. A feeling like floating in the skies and the clouds on a warm summer day, the doves fly me in to show me that love and hate are not the same. I shall continue to thrive and see what tomorrow brings. No grand plan needed, and haters be gone – I will sing.

Odor

From the best days of my life, to the worst days of my life – there will always be some form of pain and strife. Cut with that dull knife just to find more pain on the other side.

I wish I could get away from the world on a starship. Receiving the peace I get when I look into your emerald eyes almost makes it all worth it.

A long journey to the swamp and back, there’s days you win and days you loose – they’ll say. It is true, half and half – the good and the bad days sway.

A long, hard battle and trip over this banana split of a life. I wish I hadn’t made all of these mistakes that caused me this pain and strife.

Key to Happiness

They say you cannot buy happiness, I believe it is true. Happiness can only be achieved in the little things that you do. A feeling more enjoyable than a homemade key lime pie, I learn the key to happiness is you, my Clementine. Through the looking glass I find my purpose in life is to love and treat you right.

I’d climb across endless rocky mountains if you were on the other side. Just to hold you and listen to whatever bright idea came into your mind. More tasteful than a watermelon, you are the key to happiness, and I’ve come undone.

Sizzors

When I was little, a little boy – the best things in life didn’t seem so easy to destroy. Now that I’m older, I see the way of the world and what it is in and of itself. The pain it causes me at night moves me out of peace like a conveyor belt.

From the nursery days to now, I still feel ashamed. I will never be worthy or royal, and instead feel the same. I may always feel without a home and lost, as if I’m traveling through wheat fields. Like a rat in a cage, I am trapped in a prison of what everyone expects me to feel.

With my yellow jacket in the rain, I will never understand why I cause everyone so much pain. Perhaps I will one day pay the price and face the strain, dreaming on about a world of change.

Humen

Daydreaming again, it happens everyday. Visions of antique brass and ruby slippers are often ruptured by a sway.

I often get lost in my thoughts. I wish I could focus more, as my quicksilver imagination as led me to so much loss.

I wish I could savor all of the precious and small moments like coming across a field of poppies. But as I hold up the new leaf, I discover again and again that what I do end up remembering is always sloppy.

My daydreams may go on and on, whether they be about a beach or a pond. Even though they often distract me from the real world, they are always memorable and precious – like a newborn fawn.

I quite like daydreaming after all, it seems to be. Forget about the real world, for it often fails you and knocks you down to your knees.

Hunter ❤️👸👑💍😍♥️

You are more beautiful than every single star and constellation in the galaxy. The Northern Lights would dimmer at the sight of you, as your incomparable, captivating, divine beauty sends me down to my knees. No one could hold a candle up to you, for you are beyond extraordinary.

Your stunningly gorgeous golden hair that shines brighter than the sun never fails to leave me awestruck. Getting to stare into your breathtakingly, magnificent, glorious eyes that run as deep as outer space – would make me one of the greatest and most impossible luck.

You have the best sense of humor, you have a brilliant mind that is one of a kind, and you bare more strength throughout hard times than the fastest imaginable rip tides.

There are not enough words in the world for me to tell you how you are perfect and flawless in every single way. You are a goddess, you are a queen, and I love you more and more everyday.

Top 10 Greatest U.S. Presidents

1. Abraham Lincoln (16th U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1861-1865

Political Views: Republican Party

Religious Views: Spiritual

Vice President(s): Hannibal Hamlin (1861-1865), Andrew Johnson (1865-1865)

Previous Occupation: State Representative of Kentucky

Strongest Points:

1. Pursued equal justice for all, as he abolished slavery by leading the Union Army to victory against The Confederates in The Civil War, letting all African American‘s free from enslavement – as he understood that we are all created equal.

2. Outstanding crisis leadership, as he stood out on the front lines and battle fields during The Civil War unarmed, and even after multiple assassination attempts by evil slave owners that wanted to keep brutalizing black people – he walked around town alone, displaying his ability to be brave in the worst of times, give hope to the people, and lead them out of such an awful crisis.

3. Administrative skills and setting an agenda, as he surrounded himself with people who thought differently, because he could handle a different perspective – and that is always needed in a President. He liked hearing different insights that pertained to decision making, and his acceptance of constructive criticism helped him achieve his success of winning The Civil War with the northern states Union Army against the southern states Confederacy, abolishing slavery, signing The Emancipation Proclamation, walking around the front lines and battle fields completely unarmed, & uniting the people that were for freedom during times of crisis – as he also bared great public persuasion skills, and had made numerous inspiring speeches that motivated people during dark times. Most notably, the awe-inspiring Gettysburg Address.

Weakest Points:

1. Relations with congress, as he didn’t break apart and take to court the corrupt individuals working there who not only had too much power over the decision making in the lives of the citizens – but began later helping steel factory companies enforce cheap labor on their workers. But Lincoln couldn’t see into the future, so there is no way he possibly could’ve cared about it – as at the time it wasn’t really an issue – unlike owning people and brutalizing them. He was busy guiding America throughout the biggest political and constitutional crisis we would ever see.

2. George Washington (1st U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1789-1797

Political Views: Independent

Religious Views: Episcopalian

Vice President(s): John Adams (1789-1797)

Previous Occupation: General in the American Revolution

Strongest Points:

1. His strong economic management, as he brought jobs to all of the American people and made all the tax breaks necessary for the economy to take off and boom.

2. His major role in the founding and birthing of America, as he led us to victory against Britain as commanding Army general in The Revolutionary War so that we could be free.

3. Laying down the foundation of America’s laws, how congress will work, who will be in charge of what, and how state laws and different government positions would function. He laid down everything American presidency should be after his rejection of the position of king, by setting down the ground rules of good public persuasion, uniting the states, uniting the people, making the budget cuts necessary so there is a chicken in every pot, & surrounding yourself with free-thinkers who have different views and different perspectives. Washington and Lincoln’s performance of context within the times – was better than any other president America has had. Washington also had great public persuasion skills, as he is the only President to have won every single state. And after being asked to be appointed king by America, he said that’s not what we fought for. Not many would have the courage to turn down the position of king. He is also the only person to become President without running. Public persuasion was Washington’s strongest performing category, and independents, Federalists, & Democratic-Republicans alike loved him. He united the states, and we always need a president who does that.

Weakest Points:

1. Pursued equal justice for all, as he ignored the slavery problem and didn’t speak out about the way innocent African American’s had been brutalized. While Washington is the only slave owning President to free all his slaves, he didn’t free the many others people had owned – and instead let them continue to suffer, as did everyone before Lincoln.

3. Franklin D. Roosevelt (32nd U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1933-1945

Political Views: Democratic Party

Religious Views: Episcopalian

Vice President(s): John Nance Garner (1933-1941), Henry A. Wallace (1941-1945), Harry S. Truman (1945-1945)

Previous Occupation: Governor of New York

Strongest Points:

1. His economic management post-Great Depression, as he brought jobs to the people after what at the time was the worst recession in American history – with a series of programs for economic recovery called The New Deal, that had invented social security and reformed the banking system, and rebuilt and brought back the economy – giving jobs to all the millions of unemployed citizens, reviving and bringing back all of the bankrupt businesses – defeating the 24.6% unemployment rate after 10 years.

2. His exceptional skills in handling international situations, as he knew exactly when America should’ve gotten involved in WWII – and all the moves we needed to make in order to be successful.

3. His public persuasion skills, as he was genuine, honest, & likable – and he united the states and the people during times of crisis.

Weakest Points:

1. Relations with congress, as he achieved little success in removing the corrupt legislators that desired too much control and wanted to enforce unconstitutional laws – and ignoring the issue later made it progress to the point there was a war on drugs in the 60’s and 70’s, as people ignored border control and didn’t take the individuals in congress that helped push illegal drugs to court. With the help of congress, he also pushed the United Nations (formally known as The League Of Nations by Woodrow Wilson), which was a horrible failure than should not have been expanded upon. While Wilson and FDR are not to be responsible or at fault for the UN’s inability to properly face a crisis, they did push and found it which despite being a good idea – resulted as a disaster and joke.

4. Theodore Roosevelt (26th U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1901-1909

Political Views: Republican Party

Religious Views: Presbyterian

Vice President(s): Charles W. Fairbanks (1905-1909)

Previous Occupation: Vice President of The United States of America

Strongest Points:

1. Relations with congress, as he stood up and broke apart all of the steel factories and cooperations that were enforcing cheap labor on their workers, brutalizing them with 7 day work weeks, 12 hours a day. He knew exactly how to conquer and defeat them once and for all, as he took them to court and played monopoly. He was a bright mind and great leader who knew how to get the job done, freeing those workers from cheap labor once and for all – busting up not only the corrupt companies, but the corrupt individuals in congress that helped enforce that horrible cheap labor.

2. Outstanding public persuasion skills, as he united the states and people during dark times – while democrats and republicans alike had voted for him due to his open mind and respect for opposing candidates and different points of view.

3. Phenomenal crisis leadership, as he walked around town alone representing his extreme bravery in times it was most difficult to be brave like Lincoln. Even after an assassination attempt by a bullet to the chest from a factory owner that wanted to keep enforcing cheap labor nearly killed him – he still walked around without fear demonstrating and giving hope to the people.

Weakest Points:

1. Having heedlessness concerning his men as a rough rider during The Spanish-American War, and due to a lot of the rash decisions he made – he costed many rough rider’s their lives. And as President, he should’ve spoken about women’s rights as they had been terribly oppressed and could not vote or drive.

5. Harry S. Truman (33rd U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1945-1953

Political Views: Democratic Party

Religious Views: Protestant

Vice President(s) Alben W. Barkley (1949-1953)

Previous Occupation: Vice President of The United States of America

Strongest Points:

1. International situations, as he led America to victory in WWII by dropping an atomic bomb on Japan – forcing them to surrender, and ending the war for good. He took all the steps necessary in order for us to be successful during the war’s final stages.

2. Public persuasion skills, as he was charismatic and united individuals on both sides during hard times.

3. His phenomenal economic management by continuing down the road of FDR’s economic policies, as Truman invented the term “chicken in every pot” – which means there will be jobs for all and food on the table for your families. And sure enough, there was!

Weakest Points:

1. Lack of a more planned out presidential agenda, as he was inaugurated out of the blue after FDR had died during his fourth term – and he didn’t have a solid plan set out for building an administration. While Teddy Roosevelt was also inaugurated out of the blue after the assassination of William McKinley, Roosevelt had better vision setting than Truman and had the agenda of taking down the horrible steel factory companies and individuals in congress breaking the labor laws long before he took office. Theodore was chosen by the party to serve as McKinley’s VP because of his rough and tumble leadership as a rough rider in The Spanish-American War, and because he was so conservative. The original idea of the Republican Party and President McKiney was to keep Roosevelt silent, but as I stated before – he had big plans to move the country forward long before taking office.

6. Woodrow Wilson (28th U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1913-1921

Political Views: Democratic Party

Religious Views: Presbyterian

Vice President(s): Thomas Marshall (1913-1921)

Previous Occupation: Governor of New Jersey

Strongest Points:

1. Pursued equal justice for all, as he stood up and said it was wrong how women couldn’t vote or drive – as he understood that we are all created equal, and that women need equal rights. So, he proposed multiple bills protecting their rights including the right to vote as he added the 19th constitutional amendment in 1920 after years of women being oppressed – because no President before him had addressed the issue.

2. Administrative skills, as he surrounded himself with independent free thinkers and contemplated perspectives from all sides. He kept an open mind at all times, and never inappropriately trashed opposing candidates – as he had a great vision and he set a solid and firm agenda after President Taft’s recession economy that Wilson revived.

3. International situations, as he led America to victory in WWI – and he knew all the steps that needed to be taken in order to be successful. Like FDR, he knew exactly when to get involved – and he sent the declaration of war at just the right time.

Weakest Points:

1. Having poor communication skills to the people, as he didn’t properly inform them about The Spanish Flu pandemic in 1918 – which had resulted in the death of many. He inappropriately addressed it, and should’ve spoken up more about it. Or done more research to inform the people, as he just should have handled it more aggressively. And starting the horrible failure known as The League Of Nations that was later changed to The United Nations by FDR – was a great idea that just was impossible to execute. It resulted as an embarrassment as the UN’s inability to face a crisis as they couldn’t help any countries like they were supposed to. Poor move nonetheless, but Wilson and FDR’s intentions were good and they aren’t really responsible for anything that The UN did – rather the UN’s founders and leaders were at fault for not being able to help as needed and face a crisis. Started by Woodrow as an alternative to going to war, because he understood that you should only get involved when absolutely necessary – The League Of Nations was a good plan and placeholder prior to sending the declaration of war.

7. Ronald Reagan (40th U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1981-1989

Political Views: Republican Party

Religious Views: Presbyterian

Vice President(s): George H.W. Bush (1981-1989)

Previous Occupation: Governor of California

Strongest Points:

1. Outstanding public persuasion, as he was funny and likable and united republicans and democrats alike in times of crisis – winning 49/50 states, and even prior to that – became governor of a liberal state as a conservative, because everybody liked him as he was kind to everyone, expressed different views in a civil and sophisticated manner, and united the people.

2. Administrative skills, as he surrounded himself with other different thinkers who had different perspectives – and his ability to contemplate a different point of view played a major role in the decisions he made to moving the country forward, bringing us back to economic health after the recession of Jimmy Carter, ending the Cold War, and ending the terrible division that had been progressing for two decades. And he knew that it wasn’t the fault of either side, but the fault of the politicians for wanting to argue with each other – rather than come up with solutions to the problems at hand. He was always kind to his opponents, made funny jokes, & united democrats and republicans alike.

3. Economic management, as he brought up a booming economy after a bad recession, gave jobs to all of the unemployed, and cut unnecessary taxes -all during his first term. Most notable economic management decisions include cutting the income tax with two separate bills via – The Economic Recovery Act of 1981, and The Tax Reform Act of 1986.

Weakest Points:

1. Pursued equal justice for all, as he ignored the way gay people were being treated and discriminated against. Despite doing an exceptional job educating America about the AIDS epidemic, as Reagan had great communication skills to the people – he did little to help the victims of the disease, which had primarily effected homosexuals and drug users – and many innocent people died because he wouldn’t do anything about the issue. And as gay people couldn’t get married and were being picked on – he didn’t address the problem or speak up about it.

8. Thomas Jefferson (3rd U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1801-1809

Political Views: Democratic-Republican Party

Religious Views: Deism

Vice President(s): Aaron Burr (1801-1805), George Clinton (1805-1809)

Previous Occupation: Vice President of The United States of America

Strongest Points:

1. Expanding the country with The Louisiana Purchase, which had officially made the state a part of the country – and shipped in more jobs to the people, helping further bring up the economy, and helping Jefferson give a chicken in every pot. He also had cut and lowered unnecessary taxes to further help the economy take off, as his economic management was just excellent.

2. His major role in the founding of and birthing of America, as he was the primary author and the one who drafted The Declaration Of Independence – freeing us against The British in 1776.

3. His exceptional crisis leadership skills and bravery throughout the darkest of times, as even though he knew making a lot of the decisions he made during The Revolution, as the 1st Governor of Virginia, as Vice President, & as President – could’ve costed him his life, he made those decisions anyway for the freedom and for the sake of the people.

Weakest Points:

1. Pursued equal justice for all, as he was a hypocritical slave owner that didn’t address the problem of owning people.

9. Dwight D. Eisenhower (34th U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1953-1961

Political Views: Republican Party

Religious Views: Quaker

Vice President(s): Richard Nixon (1953-1961)

Previous Occupation: Supreme Court Commander of The National Treaty Organization

Strongest Points:

1. Pursued equal justice for all, as he proposed a civil rights bill that protected the voting rights of African-American citizens – as they had been oppressed and their votes had little influence in the majority of southern states, due to various local and state laws.

2. Relations with congress, as with their help he founded NASA, started the interstate highway system, and expanded social security.

3. Public persuasion, as he united the states and had an open mind at all times and respect for his opponents and their different points of view. He was a good moral compass and individuals on both sides respected him.

Weakest Points:

1. Economic management, as after Truman’s booming economy post WWII – Eisenhower didn’t know how to replicate Harry’s economic success and his policies that needed to be continued in order to be successful – and he ended up leaving America with a shortage of supplies that we had already begin to run short on to due a World War, and things became slightly more expensive for the lower and middle class citizens. But he didn’t tank the economy, everyone had jobs, there was a chicken in every pot, and he also further lowered all of the taxes and kept the stock market up and alive. In fact, President Eisenhower only temporarily disrupted the economy and ended up balancing the budget. And he was the only president that would do so for quite some time, as his economic management was still good, yet also his weakest performing category.

10. James Madison (4th U.S. President)

Presidential Term: 1809-1817

Political Views: Democratic-Republican Party

Religious Views: Anglican

Vice President(s): George Clinton (1809-1812), Elbridge Gerry (1813-1814)

Previous Occupation: Jefferson White House Secretary of State

Strongest Points:

1. International situations, as he successfully led America to victory through the war of 1812 with strong military leadership, crisis leadership, and moral authority.

2. His good vision setting and agenda, as he had a plan he was going stick with and he knew exactly who he wanted in his administration. He had an open mind and surrounded himself with independent thinkers, which helped him make a lot of the decisions he made pertaining to moving the country forward.

3. His major role in the founding and birthing of America, as he was the one to draft and write The Constitution and Bill Of Rights – protecting us from oppression from the British once and for all, & giving us the amendments and constitutional freedoms no other country would have. Madison is also often referred to and credited as – “The Father Of The Bill Of Rights”.

Weakest Points:

1. Pursued equal justice for all, as he ignored the slavery problem – and was a hypocritical owner of human beings himself. To the British, all men created equal – and as for the slaves – nobody before Lincoln knew how to handle the situation. While Madison and other presidents before Lincoln were morally and ethically against slavery, they saw it as a constitutional right at the time and because they hadn’t known anything different – they just didn’t know how to fix the problem. Madison and the rest of our Founding Father’s most certainly didn’t fear being judged for addressing the problem, as all the decisions they made leading up to freeing us from The British costed them so much, they just didn’t care that much about the issue of slavery – and were focused on defeating The British and founding America. If they had been focusing on the slavery issue, America wouldn’t have been founded, we wouldn’t have moved forward, & the country would have been dead.
