The Ode

Ode to the Writer

By Tom Foster

 

We are the lords and ladies of creation, yet we are still just players.
In the beginning we are as in the end.
We do not aspire, we simply do.
There is the dream, tempered by the reality, and given form by the thought.
By our thought, by our dreams, and by the reality we impose.
It’s a madness of the sort that only poets and writers can truly understand, and even among those only a few can comprehend.
Comprehension, that is a truly frightening thing.
We play with words, we are those that can immortalize, and those that can do what must be said and say what must be done.
It is confusion, this comprehension, and in the midst of it all, it is the single word that carries power, the one among all that is ever elusive, ever there, always waiting for us to return to, to remind us what it is that drives us, what keeps the fountain flowing.
Every last soul that has ever put ink to paper, ever put finger to key, every vague idea that swirls inward from the maelstrom we call the world, the universe, and everything in between and without.
For everything that could come, for everything that has and will come, we are there. We are the ones that do not deny the voice that tells us, “this must come to pass”, or “this must be remembered”.
It is who we are, what we do, and through everything, it is the lifeblood of those who cherish this timeless art form, this undeniable urge to say, in their own manner, “I AM”.
We are not gods, we create, and yet in the process, we are created. It is our words, penned and copied throughout the ages that have helped to shape the world, to say that, “WE ARE”, that “WE EXIST”.
Whether tyrant or savior, good or evil, saint or sinner, the words that are put to time’s test are those that will come to define the world we know. Memory is not enough, though it serves.
As do we.
We are the lords of creation, the ones whose words will last and echo into the ages, for all to see, and all to remember.
Is it truth?
The better question is: Does it matter?
We are the lords and ladies of creation, and by our words, the world we know is shaped, molded, and given to the next generation, and so on and so forth until the whole mess ends, only to be rebuilt, and to crumble again.
We are the lords and ladies of Creation, and this is our legacy.

There are some ideas that come out these days that aren’t bad, including some remakes and reboots, but otherwise, that well has either run dry or every writer in Hollywood has gone blind and is groping in the wrong direction…..boy that sounded wrong…..oh well.

How Many Will “Swear to Leave” This Time? (If Trump Wins)

There’s a reason why people don’t want to hear celebrities talking about politics unless they’re directly involved in one policy or another, their words are worthless if they can’t keep them. If you say one thing and do another, then your word means next to nothing, hence the reason why no one wants to hear anything from celebs that doesn’t have to do with entertainment. Is that clear enough? Obviously enough since too many brainwashed individuals will stick up for those that don’t practice what they preach.

It’s Okay, The Word Doesn’t Mean Much These Days

Unfortunately if things on the left don’t ramp up soon this might be the entire truth instead of the half truth.

There’s a reason that the word doesn’t mean as much, and it’s largely because people operate on fear and suspicion and slap the label whenever something offends or upsets them. Coincidence? Not really.

Sadly, while this isn’t true of everyone, it’s quite noticeable.

The Story Is Always There

Anansi, tell me a story as Saga imparts the wisdom behind its words and speaks the tales of old. There must always be a story, and one to tell it. The responsibility of those that come after is to continue the story in one way or another, and it’s a responsibility to be taken seriously and with much joy.

An Answer to Reparations

In other words, just in case there’s anyone that didn’t get it…..hell no, not now and not ever, unless there are those that were living as slaves that are still alive today. Find a person that was alive back then and then certainly, those folks deserve their reparations. For the rest of the crowd whining so shrilly for something they didn’t earn and don’t deserve? Hell to the no.
