This Blue Collar Typewriter

This blue collar typewriter
So many hours down at Ford
Working to support the family
Under the watchful eye of the Lord
Staying together, hand in hand
There were many times that were rough
No fairytale existence here
But love & devotion were always enough

Staring Into A Blank Page

Staring into a blank page
Where can we take this from here
Will you support an unattractive soul
Will I always find friends of good cheer
I question the future as if it weren’t sold
Please tell me we still have a chance to be free
I type out thoughts that you might never know
But throughout time & space, you’ve meant more to me

Read Tosha’s Book!

This little beauty just showed up from the good people at Amazon! I’m super excited to read it. Like, more excited than 37 year old should be about anything at all. It’s kinda embarrassing. If you don’t know Tosha Michelle, then you’re behind the 8 Ball. Please check her out – I mean check out her blog. And her books!

Here’s a pic I used back a few months with her poetry book next my grandfather’s typewriter. It’s a great book. & I try to use the typewriter daily.

 

My words won’t do her justice. Please just see for yourself. 😀💚✨

The Man Has You Grinding Away

The man has you grinding away
The organ makes the monkey dance
You’re looking for the Promised Land
But you never really had the chance
You’re writing your soul on the page
Friends support & love all they heard
But the critics cry foul & laugh bitterly
You’re only as good as your last word
