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 fraud.

In a land where the emotional norm is trauma
because those seeking nirvana
are denied marijuana.

In a land where inherited tradition
deters the ambition 
of an honest politician. 

In a land that still sees no correlation 
between a prescription, addiction 
and a gravestones inscription...


And Heroins guise does blossom
when humanity is forgotten.
Therein lies the problem.

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…

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…

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 …
