Once when you were young, you won your town the race. They cheered you throughout the market square; Men and boys stood around, cheering and home they brought you on shoulders high...

Runners Of Long Ago Races

Once revered for their tenacious
even vital contributions to their peers.
Some chose to rise up,
way above their life stations
as were others making
similar, groundbreaking
contributions, within the context
of their own communal co-habitants.

Homes For Aged-Half way Stations to Nirvana

Then, they were men and women
of reverence, hailed,
for selfless endeavors.
Their once bright countenances
casting less than a dull gleam,
now in the light of a rising
coastal sun's rays, reflecting
only a dim glow
of their former self.

He Says Were Still Worthwhile

Relics, human flotsam
littering the shorelines
of the world which are
the halfway stations to Nirvana,
the homes for the aged.
God knows, we are still worth it
but He is the only one who cares.

Hi , Thank you for being on my followers list. I have been searching for about a year for a write for cash site which works as easily as wikinut and pays like Bubblews did in their heyday! One of our wikinutters, passed this information on to me of a brand new cash writing site which is similar to Bubblews and it pays its writers for original work. I joined and find their pay system very interesting. If you could use a few extra bucks like me, and would like more details please send me an email to:


Kindest regards,

Andre' (Tranquilpen)
PS: Many wikinut and Bubblews writing community are already there!
