Heroins Guise Does Blossom

By: Jared Ford
West Virginia "Almost Heaven"
 ironic foreshadowing the minds infected the hearts distracted their attention directed to the new ruler of Heaven new savior of the forgotten There's a new hero in town and her name is Heroine
GIVE ME YOUR OPPRESSED  and I'll give them Opiates!  Oxycontin, or Percocet or Roxys, or Fentanyl! fuss not over the name for the results all the same! an escape from your worries, an escape from your life
 So come out of that log cabin, Climb aboard this bandwagon! Think not of your wife or the toil and strife of a pressing days labor, half the wage of your neighbor.

No need to make amends
to deter your fleeing friends.
Just frequent the drugstore and I'll settle the score. I'll cleanse their memory
from any future reverie. All aboard the Death Wagon, I've got a seat just for you!
Herein lies the problem,
Heroins guise does blossom:
In a land where those who feel flawed,
unworthy of God,
are lost in it's heavenly f…

50 Shades of America

The United States of America. 
 Doesn't feel so "United" right now, does it? If you've watched the news, logged into social media, or just visited the internet in the past 2 years, then you're probably more than aware of the ideological divide in America these days. 
So what happened?
 I think one of the first and foremost issues at hand, is that Americans have forgotten what exactly an  American looks like. In today's world of hand-picked news, feedback loops, and "safe spaces", it's become effortless to only see and hear those people that you agree with. Suddenly your preferred image and audience is easy to see and anything else that challenges your views can be simply blocked, removed, or unfollowed. It becomes easy to believe that a "real American" is someone who looks, talks, and thinks a lot like you do. 
 We forget that this nation is made up of 50 independent states, smaller de facto nations, that vary in personality and cultu…

Dream 1-8-18

Dream 1-8-18
I kicked the snow off my boot, placed it in the bindings, and strapped the snowboard to my feet. I was just about to kick off when I noticed a fresh path above me, off to the left. I could huff it up there and that could be my fresh powder… Ok, screw it. I undid my straps and started trudging up through the deep snow when — OW! What the fuck? My left ear was being electrocuted, causing my head to twitch to the side. I ripped off my sunglasses and the pain stopped.
What? It felt as if that electrical surge was coming from the end of my sunglasses. I picked them up, squeezed on the end of the left side, and noticing a small bulge within, proceeded in trying to crush it.  That’s when I thought I had truly lost it, because I could have sworn I heard sounds squeaking out of it…
Hesitantly, I lifted the glasses back to my head, hovered them just above where they would’ve sat on my ears.
“Do not crush that Jared! This is extremely rare and expensive technology!” a voice spoke.

2018 By: Jared Ford
Again and again, I must say adios another orbit, comes to a close In my reverie, A wave I ride The crests, the troughs, the praises, the scoffs the tears, the smiles fresh for a while
End this year, Begin again Collect your goals, and set your sights Focus your aim, prepare if you must but loosen the reigns, in this, trust what happens — happens. release your control, follow the soul
  Find the center     the crests & the troughs the praises & the scoffs the smiles & the tears  Sure to appear, this here new year
Discover the balance
and when  it is found
...
stay there for a while




Message: Unseen

Message: Unseen By: Jared Ford
He said: I love you man. I'm so glad we're friends.
I love you too brotha, wink face, I replied I'm waiting—Still waiting, How long must I abide? They're saying you're gone?? But... this talk isn't over, This can't be the end, this day in October
I have so much to say! No... Please... Just respond!

This should not be real, the pain that I feel. How can it be, that it's now only me? Where did you go? You were so quick to depart. I'm looking! I'm searching! I'm screaming your name! Damn it Marcus, I'm lost, no more hide and seek It's time to come out, I need my best friend This game I can't win, and the future looks bleak..
My brother — my kin.  We were born as strangers, yet chose to be family Is this not the most omnipotent bond? When blood claims the pot, still, the hearts all-in. Surely this endures out into the beyond Where pain is forgotten, in the realm of the fallen How's the view out ther…

Blood Brothers #2

Blood Brothers #2 By: Jared Ford

"Shh... listen? Do you hear that?" Mikey leaned forward and flicked off the lantern, plunging us into absolute darkness.  
"What?" I said.
"Voices. Far off. Unintelligible, but definitely voices" he whispered. My brother's typically bombastic voice rarely reduces to a whisper, so I knew he was sincere. This was not good.

How could they have found this mine? Even the locals on this island hardly knew of its location. I had only found it by accident when one of my more eccentric buddies insisted we hike and hunt for Gold along remote streams in the canyons.  Even then, the entrance was so covered in growth and hanging vines that we could've walked right by and never noticed. They must have followed our tire tracks. I led them right to us. I was in such a rush before, that thought had never occurred to me. Until now.
Holding my breath, I listened intently. 
For a while, nothing, and then I heard them. Their voices ri…

An American Slaughter

An American SlaughterIn memory of the Las Vegas Massacre victims By: Jared Ford


The darkness is thick today. 


The sensation of weight, drags my heart low within,
Doubt & confusion convert my mind into haze.
It will not relinquish, in these coming days,
As stories are told & pictures are shown.

While our joyfulness weakens, national unity deepens.
When an American dies, there is no divide.
Alone, their blood spills, but together, we bleed. 
Anger is here, but for now, we must grieve.
For our brothers and sisters, our lovers, our children,
These were our future, stolen & frozen.

Preserved in the past, let them not die in vain.
Remember this feeling, the heartbreak, the pain,
The anger that follows, supplying rage like a viper,
Let it permeate your thoughts, that cowardly sniper!
An American died! An American died! 

"We'll get those responsible, may they burn evermore!"
"How dare someone strike us? The U. S. of A!"

In the rising suns light, a chilling…

Finding God #2 - Fruit

You guys like fruit?



Of course you do. Fruit is awesome. Vegetables are great too, although not as delicious. These were the first foods reportedly given to us by God in the Garden of Eden. 
However long ago that may have been, until that moment, there was no food because there was no one to need it. Once the first man and woman were created, they required energy to survive. Seeing this, God provided. A lush garden appeared, full of divine gifts from their creator, fruit and vegetables. 
The first humans were vegetarians and it wasn't until after the great flood that God suggested humans begin eating meat. Before you groan, thinking this article is preaching the benefits of a vegetarian diet, know that I am by no means a vegetarian and I eat meat daily. There is a radically different idea I've been fostering among this knowledge, but before I can share this idea, I need to teach you a few things. 
Have you ever heard of the mathematical ratio Phi? It's the square root of 5…

Blood Brothers #1

Blood Brothers By: Jared Ford
“That’s not all either” he said “one hundred, two hundred maybe?”
He looked at me wildly as he pulled his hatchet out of our guest’s forehead. Now, I say guest, but I’m more or less borrowing that term, because he wasn’t invited. He just appeared, like a surprise guest. Yes, one second I’m pouring a couple neat scotches for my brother and me in front of my bay window, the next, I’m staring at this fat piece of shit walking up my driveway, aiming an assault rifle at me. Me!
“I just bought this god damned villa two weeks ago! And now I have to blow the whole damn thing up? Two fucking weeks Mikey!” I screamed. I have reason to be so upset. This will be my 3rd vacation home I’ve lost to armed warfare. “This is some fucked up luck, why does it always have to MY vacation home eh? Why have we never had one fucking gun battle at your fucking house Mikey?”
“Because you’re obnoxiously noticeable! Christ, you might as well drag some fucking beer cans off your bum…

Finding God #1

This series I call Finding God and it is an example of questions that plague me on a daily basis, and the process of my imagination, going back to my first memories... What/where/how is God, What/how/why am I?


What if everything you’ve ever believed was wrong? If everything you take for granted and assume as fact, is just plain wrong… Look around you. Pick an item, anything... Odds are, you are looking at something very hard and solid. Touch it. Feel how solid it is, there is no denying that its right in front of you, that it is indeed a solid mass, right?
Well, whatever solid you chose, is 99% nothing at all. In fact, there is so much empty space in that solid thing, that certain wavelengths have no trouble traveling straight through it without even the slightest collision, and it appears on the other side.
At the center of each atom is a tiny nucleus situated in empty space. How much empty space? Lets use a peanut to represent the nucleus, and Wrigley Field to represent the atom …
