Scott Campbell

3: 05 A.m.

So what, I am up.
All the people in their little boxes around me everywhere sleeping
Resting up to go to work
Work like the ants
Work like bees and get nothing but a reason to sleep again.

Poetry according to a cynic

Poetry is not
Beautiful words strung together to make you light
Poetry is not
Appreciated by anyone but the author
Poetry is not
Structured and redundant
Poetry is not
All about why women leave, taking pieces of your soul
Poetry is
Life, as you see it

Much Like Birth, Death Can't Be A Pretty Sight

Sitting alone
Being alone is not so bad
Unless you can't stand yourself
I imagine this happens, often
But I don't mind me
When you are alone you think about life
When you think about life you think about death
They say you're born alone, you die alone,
I do hope so
I like being alone

It's just best to sleep all day

They say a man can have a spiritual awakening in his 30's, the other day, I woke up.
I woke up to the reality of the fact that I have not accomplished anything worth a damn.
Death looming, nothing left to remember, just a pile in a landfill with the rest of the memories.
I woke up terrified, expectations of society, looking sternly at me, disappointed.
No wife, no kids, no job, no assets, no retirement, no pension, no chance.
I woke up
