“Do you know the enemy?,”

Green Day asked from my TV

in just the same meter I used

for those first two lines

and the same meter used

in a thousand lines

of a thousand punk songs

since punk music decided,

“Silence is the enemy!”

(Green Day screamed from my TV)

i didnt read the paper this morning

its been a while since last i thought

of that scraggly man on the park bench

huddled under the new york times

that i threw in the garbage yesterday

but i bet you a nickel hes thought of me

on a harlots porch

come and knock on my door she said
come spend the day with me
ive nowhere to go
youve nowhere to go
come keep me company

come and knock on my door she said
ive got nowhere to be
im awfully tired
youre awfully tired
ill keep you company

come and knock on my door she said
i wont yet be asleep
ive waited enough
youve waited enough
come keep me company

come and knock on my door she said
youve been longing for me
i have what you want
i am what you want
ill keep you company

come and knock on my door she said
no need for secrecy
you know you need me
i know you need me
come keep me company

come and knock on my door she said
you come so eagerly
dont act so surprised
youre not so surprised
im your idolatry

i am a young man

anxious to be an old man

wishing to be a young man

so i can love you now

as i will then

Matthew the paradox

in a way that conflicts me

the paradox of walking both forward and backward

is how i seem to be

knowing but really not knowing

a paradox i seem to be

i exist but i really don’t seem to

order for the sake of chaos

chaos for the sake of order

is the paradox of me

better this way

dream
but don’t sleep
wake walk and dream
in time in tandem
accept
but don’t condone
live love and accept
without compromise

AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!

I know I know, i haven’t posted in a while. patronize me….. or better yet mail me 1000 usd in pennies and 27 nickels, that seems like a reasonable punishment…

I’m irritated. I feel like everything is stagnating, everything is getting redundant, everything is getting monotonous. Even my last sentence was boring and redundant.

I wish my youth group at my church was more active, even a slow crawl would be much much better than it is now. assuming the youth group existed to begin with, which probably doesn’t, which probably the reason for some of my irritation.

I like change. only because it keeeps life fom getting boring.

Its kinda like fighting stagnation, every moment.

I guess monotony is something I abhord. If I spelled that right. If i didn’t, oh well, I just changed things up a little bit.
