Chronicles Of The Notorious


A Genesis Memoir

                November 20, 2013;


                    Peering into the mirror, I see the ghosts of my past echoing in to my heart into my mind. I see the many mistakes I've made along this rocky road known as my life. I see the actions and the consequences that have brought me to where I am now. Watching once again as the world around me going up in a blaze of fire. Fueling the rage is the ignorance of man, their false sense of entitlements for being somehow superior then the “average” man. Where you see “equality” I see greed and envy. Where you see “redistribution” I see theft and the glutton. When an entire nation gets angry and argues over what would be the most trivial aspect of what would be the root of the entire problem at hand.


                  The king is dead, but not forgotten;

             Taxed for breathing, eating and living. We are even taxed upon our deaths and with the simple stroke of a pen, one man can have you disappear into the shadows without so much as a trace. If the American dream died sometime in the late 70s then the Land of the Free withered and died not soon after that.

I have often caught myself debating if I should just allow the insanity to swallow me whole. Digging my head as far back into the sand as far as I can. For the only two options I see before me through this thicket of chaos, is follow the herd over the cliff or save myself and make my own path yet even that the outcome looks just as bad and if not worse. Gotta love that irony in the choices we must make in this life and some wonder why there are those who seek that ever elusive distraction, even if the vacation is short lived.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
