Just a guy trying to make a mark on the world
Looking out the Window
In the darkness of nightI sit by the windowAnd stare out at the starsAbove my head flashes the light of a shooting starHere for a mere moment then goneI sit in the quiet of a mid summer night And feel at peace It seems that in this moment of peaceThe worries of this life fadeI begin to drift off as I gaze upon the starsAnd begin to dreamMy dreams are filled with a man who lived his life but is coming near the endAs he nears deathI awaken and look around No longer am I in front of the window gazing up at the starsNo, I am walking down a dark alleywayLike the man in my dreamWith death approaching me©nathancowart42
The Walk with Death
Walking down a dark alleyDeath approached meHe offered me eternal joy if I were to join him.I denied him his request and continued on my way.A second time Death approached me promising me great wealth and the desires of my heart if I were to join him, but I denied him a second time and continued on my way.A third time death approached mePromising me peace and happiness I thought about his request for a moment going over all the things I would be leaving behind to join him.All of my family, friends, and loved ones.I accepted deaths offer and joined himWe walked side by side, Death telling me all the times he was so near to me.I looked at him and smiledKnowing that I wanted to wait to greet him till I was an old man, withered and worn out, telling death all the times I wanted to be near to him.Hand in hand we continued down the dark alley.Once we reached the end, I looked and Death was leading us to hills with green grass fading in the sunset.In that quiet moment we both sat down, I took a deep breath, and the sun faded and the darkness surrounded us.©nathancowart42
There I stood, a lion on the highest rock, looking across the expanse of my kingdom. Knowing that one day I shall pass it on to my children and then to their children after. I looked to the night sky and wondered what it was like to be free like the birds of the air. As I begin to look away a star soars across the sky and opens up a new realm of possibilities.As night turns to dawn, and dawn to day, I lie down and awaken at my desk. No one was around me and no one knows what had gone through my dreams. It was in that moment I chuckled and continued on at my typewriter,
Sometimes the path that we initially start on isn’t the one we stick with. We learn to change and with that change comes a fork in the road that leads us to make a decision. The decision is between our previous ways and habits or something entirely new. So I leave you with the question of, which fork in the road are you going to take? ©nathancowart42

Be the winds of change
You are the moon. No matter what you do, you will always have a dark side.
Another day has passed and I feel like I wasted it.
When I walked into the darkness I didn't expect to see you there, but then again you're heart is blacker than the very darkness that surrounds us both. What was I expecting from the love who left me©nathancowart42
A cottage in the woods
