So, you’ve heard about Chad’s new book of poetry: Now Creating the Future
But what is it like?
What do the poems look and sound like?
Is it really that good?
Is it really inspiring?
That is for you to decide dear reader. Here are a few samples of the poetry in NOW Creating the Future!
Everyone is searching for the meaning
looking for the reason to ride.
All should just stop being demeaning
and rejoice in being alive.
So many are really unhappy
a lot of them just want to die.
The real goal is just to be happy
and sit back and enjoy the ride.
Whether you drive, jump, skim, race, or fly
you gotta continue down the hill.
You’re bound to get there eventually
just zoom on down, enjoy the thrill.
We don’t have long on this great big sphere
aren’t walking much from there to here.
Things come and go very rapidly
just remember to live happily.
Coffee stains on the counter.
We don’t mean to
leave them –
tosses coffee on the
counter just to
fuck it –
toss the coffee
all over the place!
Who cares where my
No one does that!
We clean up the rings and stains
they come back with each cup.
We clean up our problems,
they always come back
till we learn
to make it in
the freakin cup!
These were just three of the 43 poems that are comprised of the entire volume of poetry: Now Creating the Future.
