Day 101 – April 13, 2014

you see them on the subway
you hear them on tv
the whispered promises of happiness
that never come to be
I wake to hear a voice
coming through the the airwaves
“First we take Manhattan,
then we take Berlin”

song lyrics from Leonard Cohen’s “First We Take Manhattan”   album “I’m Your Man” (1988)


Day 100 – April 12, 2014

these days it seems
we all carry heavy loads
you can see it in our eyes
and the set of our jaws
and the tension in our smiles.
slow down
just breathe,
take the time to remember
we’re all just children
trying to find our way in the world.
