Why Do Things Never Go the Way You Plan?
Q. Why do things never go the way you plan?
A. Because when you plan, God laughs.

Why is my life so unfair?
One moment all seems fine,
Then you’re hit with deep despair.
Shit seems to happen all the time.
≅ ≅ ≅ ≅
This year has been a roller coaster,
Full of constant ups and downs.
You never know what’s coming next,
Be it laughter, tears, or frowns.
≅ ≅ ≅ ≅
Too many of my friends have died,
Or been through hell on earth.
To help other people we have tried,
Is this karma or destined from birth?
≅ ≅ ≅ ≅
How can one man change the world
When everything seems so out of control?
It doesn’t matter what unfurls,
Pain, despair, and chaos are on a roll.
≅ ≅ ≅ ≅
Just chill-out and take what comes
Is wise advice I’d like to take.
But that is easier said than done
When most people are so fake.

I apologize for using TCE for this rant. Life has been throwing me a few curve balls lately and I just needed to get it off my chest. I am sure things will improve and my next post will be much more positive and uplifting. Thanks for reading anyway.
After a lot of procrastinating I have finally self-published my first eBooks of poetry "I Laughed a Smile" and "On the Wings of Eagles" at Lulu.com.Now I find myself branching out and experimenting with short fiction.
I have also been fortunate to have two poems chosen to be made into songs and recorded. The first "On the Road to Kingdom Come" by Al Wordlaw, and the second, "If I Could Write a Love Poem" by award-winning Israeli/British singer Tally Koren.
I am also finding my services increasingly in demand as a freelance writer and I have ghost-written the text for a number of children's books and educational tutorials.
It has taken me many years of searching and restlessness to realise that my life's passion is to write. It saddens me that I wasted so many years not devoting to that, but thinking positively, the experiences gained over those years is now wonderful material for my stories and poems.
I want to try to bring a new focus on poetry and try to make it appealing to a new generation of young people and those who thought they never liked or understood it before.
