Here we go! Already “the famous people who died in 2014” has popped up! This will be followed by “remembering the departed” followed by “the famous who left us to grieve.” All crap. I don’t need to be reminded about who was famous who died last year. We have lost of people who died while in uniform that you never saw a photo of. 22 vets take their lives everyday in this country….do you ever see a photo of them? No. Do we have a recall of their deaths at the end of the year? No. Am I on a rant? Yes. Who is more valuable, the clown that sang on America’s got talent or the PFC that fell in Afghanistan running ammo to his buddies who were were tied down under fire. The people here kiss Whoopie Goldberg and that other fat broads ass on the View. They drool over the possibility of meeting some body making a ton of money due to their being followed and worshiped by this crowd when the real heroes are just down the street in and out of uniform, overseas, firemen, police, and others like that. Not some idiot like Snooki on some idiot show like Jersey Shores.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
