The Current

A poem

The Current

Years gone by,

with a silent hope, a silent cry

Chasing the fairytale that went awry

Tears washed up and dried along the shore

Rattling me to my core

Enough is enough

Like finding a golf ball in the rough

Tirelessly looking, tirelessly wanting

Vowing to cherish my peace and accept what was

I decided there would be no end

To my loneliness I called my friend

Life is a mystery and love is no different

The way it hits you like a current

Hard to see and hard to judge

Dare I move, dare I budge?

You quickly became that current

One I couldn't see and one I couldn't stop

Hopelessly falling

swimming frantically back to the top

It was a twist of the fates

And before I knew it, it was too late

Swept away

It all felt too good to be true

But I couldn't deny, it felt different talking to you

Now I am somewhere lost at sea

and though it sounds scary, there is no place I'd rather be

How did I get here?

I was finally content alone

But thats when the current finds you

and you forget what you have known

I could try and deny what I feel is real

But that is just not the case

This is the real deal

Away at sea, it's just you and me

the current that took me, fully for me

And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.
