WRITER’S BLOCK: HELLO WORLD, IS ANYONE OUT THERE?
So, about a month ago I got this bright idea that I would throw my hat into the social media ring and get a website, this website to promote my poetry book “LIFE AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW.” It has sold two copies on Amazon.com. I have told friends and family about it, but only two friends have bought it. I guess people are just too caught up in their own lives that they cannot be bothered to take a few minutes to support this dream of mine. I am a poet and nothing will change that-but it would be nice if someone would acknowledge me. I won’t hold my breath, however, for that.
Truth is that we are all alone in this overcrowded space zipping through the cosmos towards our own oblivion. Into obscurity most us all will fade away with few traces that we had ever existed in this overcrowded space. A rare few of us will be remembered at all. So, as we go about our busy, busy, busy lives like hamsters on a hamster wheel we are merely hastening towards the dying of the light-into our own oblivion-that space where the world will have forgotten us completely, absolutely.
I write because I want to be remembered. I want this space in time in which I have existed to have meant something more than that I paid bills, owned a house, bought a car, graduated from college, etc, etc., and etc.
Truth is life is just a breath like scripture says in Psalm 90.
