I’m having writers block.  I have a million things going through my head right now and it seems like they all want to come out and can’t.  I’ts like having an hour glass filled with marbles.  For some strange reason a few poems that I wrote about 10 years ago popped into my head this morning.  I used to have a notebook that had all my writings, but it was lost when I moved.  One of my poems that I wrote was actually published in a poetry book…wish I could remember which one.  I do remember my mom not believing that they were my original work.  Can’t really blame her though, I mean I surprised myself sometimes with them.  Here are three from the top of my head.


Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to be dead,

Total silence, total darkness, bugs crawling on your head.

Nothing to do day after day , but just lay there and feel your body decay.

Wondering if your soul will go to heaven or hell,

the way you’ve lived your life, you really can’t tell.

Then you breath a sigh of relief , and praise God that you are alive.

But to your surprise, you begin to realize,

there is total silence, total darkness…

and something is crawling in your ear!


The little child is awaken by the monster at night,

tears roll down the child’s face from the fright.

The monster tells the child “you will not get hurt,now close your eyes”,

but the little child knows that monsters tell lies.

The big men monster touches the child,

the big mean monster does this for awhile.

The big mean monster gets up to leave the room, looking all happy.

As the little child says “goodnight daddy”.


Death comes and goes, when will it be your time? Only God knows.

Don’t morn over your loved one who has passed away,

you’ll be able to see them again someday.

So dry those tears from your eyes,

say “i’ll see you soon”, not “goodbye.

Because death come and goes, when will it be your time? Only God knows.

Let’s get one thing straight, I never claimed to be Dr. Seuss or Stephen King when it comes to writing.  I like reading poetry because it’s a play on words.  Something else that came to mind for some strange reason is a short story by Ernest Hemingway called “Hills Like White Elephants”.  It doesn’t necessarily have a play with words, but makes you think and somewhat makes you build a relationship with Jig.

Alright, that’s all for now.




First things first, can mother nature make up her mind as to what season she want’s to bless us with?

1. People who wear headphones while driving are dumb.  Personally, when I wear mine, I have them turned up loud.  If I were to wear them while driving, how would I be able to hear an ambulance or police car?

2. Job interview today was awesome.  I’m not having a big head, but i feel confident on how I did.  We’ll see though if i get an offer.  Interestingly, the lady who interviewed me, said that i should not accept a salary that I’m not comfortable with. I need to counter if its not what i think i deserve.  On the outside I had on my poker face, on the inside i was like… wait what…for reals?

3. Even with my interview this morning, I had to stay up to see the Blackhawks win in the 3rd OT last night. .  I finally got home about 2am.  That’s what being a Hawks fan is all about.

4. If any of my nieces dressed like this girl who just came into Starbucks, I’d have to beat their asses.  Seriously, I’ve seen more clothes at a nudist beach.

5. I just found out a half hour ago that the Undertaker is supposed to be at Wizard Con Chicago in August when i go.  This grown man is going to have tear when I meet him.  Talk about a childhood idol.  undertaker2_5-1403510477

6. Whitney Houston is coming up on her 4 year sobriety chip.
