A Sad Poem

 Writing of forbidden feelings and thoughts

Here I sit day after day and night after night
the sadness grips my heart time after time, gaining size gaining strength.
Here I lay in the dark, in pain both physical and emotional
Here I am alone, always alone, my heart saddens more by the day, by the night, by the hour.

This was not meant to be, this was not the way it was supposed to turn out, this was not supposed to happen, to Me.
Day after day, I wait by the phone, sit by the computer, waiting for anyone to contact me, to reach out to me, in friendship in love. This was not supposed to be, not the future or the present I wanted or dreamed about, the loneliness slowly engulfs me, the darkness reaches out, calling eager to hear my last breath.

I sit watching TV, scenes meant to make people laugh, make people smile, make them rejoice in memories of love, it just make me sad, tears well up in the corners of my eyes, my nose runs, my shame deepens, this is not supposed to happen to me.

Writing Excersice

Starting over again and again, how much more can I take, how much more can I endure, the darkness seeps out from within. This is not supposed to happen to me, not to me, where did my dreams go, my future, slowly fading from view, the end feels near it calls to me all the time, eager to hear my last breath my last thoughts of regret, to see my last shattered dreams.

Sitting in the waiting room at the Doctors office or the Emergency Room, I sit quietly in pain, watching others, always watching others, alone, There gentle touch on there loved ones, gentle words of encouragement to each other, I am alone, no one for me! Tears well up, but I hide them I must, for this is not supposed to happen to me, not to me. The others, people with loved ones, husbands, wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, sit comforting the sick, the injured, but not for me, not to me, I sit alone, waiting alone, suffering alone.

When they talk to me, I put on a brave face like I am supposed to, inside I withdraw a bit more, hiding the shame of tears for it is not supposed to happen to me, not to me. So instead I make jokes, make light of my own pain to hide behind, perhaps to help them, so they will not see the blackness in my heart, in my mind for it is not supposed to happen to me.

How do I let someone in, how do I smile, how to I feel love or happiness again, ever again, this was not the future that I wanted, that I thought would be mine, not supposed to happen to me, not to me.

During the day, it is slightly bearable, unless I am not working then the darkness jumps to the front, tears well up in my eyes, I sob watching movies I sob watching TV shows, I sob in my vehicle, in my house on my couch, thinking of the end, gripped in this blackness I am powerless, the tears roll down my face, I am frozen in pain and loneliness. This was not supposed to happen to me, not to me.

How do I,

can’t deal with this, programed from birth to avoid emotions, it has helped to lead me here to this time alone, contemplating the end, how to do it, how to make it happen, how and why to even try to keep going on, sadness, grief, anger my only companions, there are no friends, no friendships anymore, they have been lost in time, lost to me one by one, how to go forward, why go forward, how do I even ask for help I do not know how, tears, sadness, anguish, strong emotions, I am not supposed to deal with, these kind of things for I do not know how do deal with these emotions, any emotions, sadness, deep sadness engulfs me though it is not supposed to happen to me, not to me, I have been taught to ignore them and be brave.

Alone in the crowd, alone in the city, alone in Business, alone in my Car alone in my House, for I have no Home, always alone, forever alone. My only companion the TV or the Radio, another one way relationship.

For I am a man, a boy

For I am a boy, a Man.

Teaching WordPress

Hello everyone,
Sitting here in McDonald's teaching Virginia WordPress and how to set up a site. 

The difference from a regular website and a wordpress site is the ease in setup and the ease in updating. Another great feature is the advantage of posts and sending updates from your cell phone to the site.

Happy Earth Day

Happy earth day,
instead of Dollar Store Candles and Flashlights, use veggy oil and Jute string to make eco friendly lamps. Simple Safe
Make a lamp as simply as using a clam or oyster shell or a small cupcake pan of aluminium, just add the Veggy oil (canola or Virgin Oil) then put the Jute string in leaving one end up in the air/laying on the side. Wait till it gets saturated, light! Voila, light that is safe and Eco Friendly!

This is very safe, if it gets tipped over the lamp will simply go out, it is non toxic and if you use the right oil is pleasantly scented as well.

Elderly Grandparents

After cleaning a house in downtown TO, I visited with my 99 3/4 young Grandpa 🙂
He is doing well, thoug it is sad to see that out of the 60 people in his section of the Home, there are only 4 that are fully functioning, with him being one of them, soon 100 yrs young!

I observed the staff, they are so patient and caring. Tough and gentle at the same time, they move in and out of the tables helping the people there eat and assist them with drinks and give encouragements. Hay to go.

Now the chances of me getting to that age is slim to non, and honestly I would be in the other 56 people, barely able to function, lots of problems, have someone spoon feed you, no I do not want to get to that age really!

What I did for Preeping this week 8 April 2011

I did not do much really as still not fully recovered. Writing this actually hurts my shoulder and arm!

Received the Edible Plant Playing Cards; they are a bit smaller than I thought, but the content and colour pics are 10/10

Finished working out the details for two of my bush projects.
1st have now finished making a hay box for the cold season, once I started thinking outside the box.. pun intended it was easy and cheap to boot. Will post pics soon.

2nd Finished working out the details for a portable Rocket Stove. Simple design and light. I will also take some flat fire bricks to line the bottom of the stove, so the metal will not melt and hopefully it will transmit the heat better. pics soon as well
b. I have also thought about making it a light porty that I can add in material on site to give it more thermal mass so it retains heat better. Still looking for the right barrel, but will get one soon. I just need to go to the right auto garages and grab a used one.

A memory for 6 Canadian Solders killed this day 4 years ago.

reposted from my old army buddies facebook post we served in 3RCR together..

from Greg Alkerton;
Four years ago today a roadside bomb took the lives of 6 excellent soldiers in H Coy 2RCR. Sgt Donald Lucas, Cpl Brent Poland, Cpl Aaron Williams, MCpl Chris Stannix, Pte Kevin Kennedy, Pte David Greenslade. Tonight i’ll raise my glass to the soldiers from 22B. Pro Patria
