Sitting In A Ralphs Parking Lot
Looking For World Peace

March 25th, 2012

I wish there was someone who would understand that they will never understand, and be ok with it. That I’m not someone to be fixed or needs to be.
I am a flower. I’m full of grey petals, or something in-between.
I’d like to make myself forget.
I came here looking for world peace.
I’m not gonna break, but i’m sure I will continue to worry about it. But not the “it” you think.
It’s washing me away. I’m not ready and I don’t understand it all.
The satellites convene in one location. Things like that drive me out of my mind.

Here We Are Now, Entertain Us

This application on facebook I first found really fascinating.  It takes all your status’ of the year, and forms them into a new year’s card collage.  What an interesting way to sum up a year. 

However, it wasn’t.  It had a VERY limited amount of space.  I started eliminating all long status’ and started choosing mainly the really short ones.  And since I speak mostly in lyric or quote, mainly chose those.  This is what I came up with.

In Search Of Water (Ravenna)

(written in 1997)

I see you in all these places
I long for you everywhere I go
I wander the city
but I end up farther away

In Search Of Ravenna

In Search Of Ravenna
    -1997

I left in search of Ravenna
not knowing when i’d return
or what I would find

I left in search of Ravenna
          but I found you
                     instead
