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 there buddy? Please, just respond.

With all your theories, ideas, and hypotheses
tell me, of these, which were correct? 
Who holds this wisdom? Aristotle, Socrates?
Is it simpler than that? Is it love and romance?
   Is it goodwill and kinship? Is it union in God?
You must be so thrilled, to posses all these answers
Are you allowed to abscond? Please, just respond.

Do you remember our youth? Do you remember Pleasure Island?
 All the friends that we made? All those girls that we chased?
Or the heaps of trouble, that we never seemed to escape?
There was never a moment we let go to waste,
There was never an adventure we were shy to commence,
There was never a mountain our imagination couldn't climb,
And there was never an obstacle that could obstruct our friendship.

Marcus Taylor Kelley, you were my partner in crime,
 And this ethereal love, this celestial bond, 
This will never die. It will stand the test of time.
So will you wait for me buddy? Please, just respond...



IN LOVING MEMORY:
 Marcus 'Taylor' Kelley
4/15/1992 - 10/15/2017

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

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 …
