Wise Words

Wise Words
Written By: Adam Hazard

These desperate times seek wise words
i'll snatch the worms from the birds
so it wont matter if youre early
fear the face im just a menace, surly
above the rest, close to the edge
dont push me I stay about my pledge
moving forward, away from the strife
aint scared to put an end to your life
try me I dont always appear as I seem
like a book, but this aint no dream
times running out, this my race from hell
dont ever want to be locked in a cell
mentally, physically ill never be chained
my past made me, so i remain trained
bred a monster by my classmates, roughshod
I dont fear nobody, not even God

soul blacken'd through a curse

so ima make the best of my life
dont care about pain or the strife

Tale of Philip's Flowers & Gifts..........

Last Monday the 7th of February, I choose to apply at the Lagrange, IL location for a package handler job on Valentine's Day. The day in which I applied I spoke to the head of the delivery department. He told me that there was a permanent part-time position opening up due in part to their regular delivery driver calling off the upcoming weekend right before their big day. On Tuesday, I got a call back from the manager asking me to come in to fill out the other packet. I told her that I was unable to come in the same day as the call, but I went in the next day around 9am. She had me fill out the rest of the paperwork for taxes, emergency contacts, social security, etc.I was asked to come in the next day for training in which I went out with one of their part-time drivers who drives only on Saturdays, but his boss called him off of work. So he called and asked them if they needed any help for the day. On the 9 package route in which they sent us out on I personally took majority of the packages to the doors. The driver who was training me mainly talked my ears off explaining different things. We delivered the 8th package, after the 8th package was delivered he received a phone call. While waiting for him I started up looking where the next location was. After sitting for approximately 15-20 on him and looking through his maps while he was on the phone. I was unable to find the location. His phone call ends finally and he asks me where it is and I told him I looked at 3-4 different maps of his with no luck at all. He had no luck in finding it either so I grabbed the other maps in the van and within a couple minutes I had found it. After delivering the package we head back to the office. Then I go straight back out with the head delivery guy to deliver a package in Orland Park. He did the same thing by talking my ears off and almost repeating the same things as the other guy. After delivering the package and getting back to the office he had me take my lunch. So when I got back from lunch, I learned that my paper was unfinished due to missing items on the application. I was then sent home and told to come back to finish the paperwork the next day which is Friday the 11th. I went and finished the paperwork then went home cause they were unable to give me work since the HR department was not in for the day after she sent them in. On Saturday and Sunday I expected to work, but since HR was not able to review my paperwork until Monday. Regardless of my paperwork status she had me come to work yesterday which was Valentines Day. I get there around 8am and was sent out almost right away. I made a mistake by delivering the wrong package to my first stop. While looking for the third stop on a map I received a call from them telling me I made a mistake to come back to the office. I get back to the office and the send me back out to the location to swap them out which is something I could have done on my way back to the office. Upon returning to the office after swapping out the packages they sent me home. I was told that the manager was mad and/or pissed at me because I made a mistake on a delivery and it was to a big account. Today they want me to return my shirts and jackets which I plan to do so later.

Basically I understand what I did wrong and that was not triple checking that I grabbed the right package. Everybody makes mistakes when they first start their new jobs. Does the first mistake need to end up by being sent home? Not at all. The situation was handled wrong by the manager 100 percent. She had the head delivery guy tell me to go home with the only reason being told that I messed up on a big account package which could have been fixed within a couple minutes. Personally, I feel like her actions were more blown up than what they should really be. When I go there later today, I have no clue what to expect honestly. I do not know if they are still going to want me to work for them. I suspect that they will not want me to, but if they do it comes down to morals. Morally would I want to work for someone who sent me home cause they were mad that I messed up one time. I know I need a job, but it should not be under those circumstances. I was so eager to start this job and work for them. I know personally I will not recommend anyone to work for them or to purchase any items from them.

Do you agree with the manager's actions? What do you think of this situation? What would you do in this situation?
If you are in the Chicagoland area would you order from a floral like this?

Call Me A Liability
Written By: Adam Hazard

Since birth I was a liability
now im searching for stability
working hard, never through deceit
conquering odds, never seen defeat
always going to test the waters
try me, you might be slaughtered
look into my eyes, burning flames
by my side, they never play games
true riders til death do us part
no books, so call me street smart
head to sky living by no limits
buck you, never lived the gimmicks
your only choice, trust me or not
my clique stay armored up, swat
shh I may be a liability for life
no matter the pain or he strife

Ways To Say I Love You on Valentine's Day

The other day I was asking question about is Valentine's Day or Sweetest Day really important! Earlier today I spotted this and let's just say it was right down my alley. You do not need to go out and buy something expensive to please your wife, girlfriend or fiancée and it should be likewise for them as well.

On Valentine's Day, it's very important to acknowledge your partner and honor your relationship. For those who aren't able or fond of spending lots of money on gifts however, try one (or all!) of these Valentine's Day ideas to say I love you.

    Ways To Show Your Love
  1. Make a meal only out of heart-shaped items, foods that are red, or both. Try red velvet cake, valentini martini, fruit and cheese salad or a heart shaped cake.

  2. Knit a scarf.

  3. Write a love letter to say I love you.

  4. Create handmade coupons with gifts your partner can use anytime, such as a massage or a night out on the town with friends.

  5. Does your partner ever ask you why you love them? Then create your own little booklet using dollar store items just for them entitled, "Why I Love You: # Reasons".

  6. Make a mixed CD of all of your favorite songs, or create a compilation of love songs that remind you of your mate. Better yet, learn how to play one of these love songs on the guitar and serenade him or her on Valentine's Day.

  7. Learn how to take erotic photos of each other with a digital camera.

  8. Make your own fortune cookies to take along to a Chinese food restaurant for dinner, and use them to woo your date on Valentine's Day.

  9. Grab some construction paper and cut out as many hearts as you like. On each one, share a story about your relationship that shows how much you care. Once finished, take the hearts and string them individually from the ceiling so it looks like your home is raining love.

  10. Purchase some clear red balloons. Before blowing them up, place either wrapped candies, small gifts, and/or love poems inside each one, and then give them to your loved one as a bouquet.

All of the above things are extremely simple to do. I have made mixed cd's before to express my love through words that I could not explain completely. My personal favorite from this list is number 10. The reason why I really like it is that it is not only clever, but you are able to show your feelings through different materials.

Even though I know I will be single this again this year. I am still happy since I am working to get my life back in order. My hiatus from poems and writing has been caused by putting together an email list to offer a service to artists.

Is There An Importance To Valentines Day?

The image above was taken from http://www.XKCD.com

Honestly my question to everyone is there really an importance to Valentine's Day? Even Sweetest Day? Isn't love suppose to be shown 24/7, 365 days a year?

Love is meant to be shared between two people. Valentine's Day is simply a given day that you MUST show your love. If not? Well let's just say your wife, fiancée or girlfriend will be mad at you. It's the same if you forget your anniversary, well maybe a little more mad. Most of the ladies expect it. The flowers, boxes of chocolates, teddy bears, the dates, etc. All of these things are priced higher for the occasion. Why should we be expected to waste a lot of money? I am for one, one of those people who like to show that I love someone all of the time.

Valentine's Day is basically just another government given holiday that stores use to make money. Sweetest day is like a baby compared to Valentine's Day whereas I do not even know much about it. I barely knew it existed. I always assumed it was the same tradition where the guy's buy girl's gifts, but then again I also heard it was the other way around.

So honestly are they really that important to celebrate? Let me know what you think? Also show love to your wife, fiancée or girlfriend on here as well! Leave a message to them if you would like.

I am not asking these questions cause I was just recently dumped by my girlfriend of 6 months a couple weeks ago. I have always felt this way since I was a little kid.

Teacher-Student Sex?

A random thought earlier popped in my head. This thought reminded me of a article I read about another teacher getting in trouble for having sex with a student. So as I though about it, I took to Facebook with my opinion. Although, I am on here going more in depth of why I feel the way I do.

This is what I had to say earlier, "I swear these female teachers must be extremely stupid now-a-days. There have been at least 3-4 that have been arrested in the last week due to having sex with students. Don't you think they would hide it better or learn from these other teachers getting arrested? Btw it's sad that even with the students consent, if they did consent to it, that these teachers are getting in trouble. lmao........."

Truth be told anyone knowing what they are doing is able to consent. Teenagers go to jail for adult crimes knowing what they are doing is wrong. Some also join gangs at an early age knowing what they are doing. These teachers are the same way going to jail for having sex with these student whether they consented or not.

Even though by law they consider it statutory rape, but technically it is not considered rape if knowing the actions giving consent.I feel like there are kids(students) already having sex at the age of 12. If these kids are able to consent with kids their own age. Why are they not able to consent to having sex with an older person? It was their choice and by no means should be punished by law. Any kid used for sexual acts under the age of 12 is a pedophile period. Age groups between 12-14 the teacher should be taken away in handcuffs for taking advantage of a kid. Ages 15-17 the teacher should not get in trouble as long as the kid knowingly consented to their actions.

Furthermore my final thoughts....... When will these teachers learn right from the wrong? I do not think they ever will.

Journey From Heaven to Hell

Journey From Heaven to Hell
Written By: Adam Hazard

can you hear the death knell
this is my only bid farewell
my journey from heaven to hell
noone to save me, im gone forever
death took me to a new endeavor
two-step'd to the gates of heaven
cant get into gates, no lucky seven
living a fast life caught up in the end
a one way trip, now i have to fend
as I walk into the fiery depths of hell
minds locked up by these demons, cell
sold my soul to Lucifer, right price
my own choices, no need to entice
a race against time, doves verse crows
this is the outcome I have chose
maybe I am death I suppose
when my heart last froze

People in and out of my life
cant deal with the pain or the strife
what is the deal good lord
don't know if I can take it anymore
Daddy's gone and I dont know where
all I can say is life aint fair
why cant he come home real soon
noone's seen him since he left at noon
hoping he would just walk through the door
with grocery bags from the store
auntie died, no lie im missing he
why do the same things have to occur
truly feeling more dead than alive
still walking the street, head to the sky
holding inside keeping thoughts to myself
weight off my shoulder onto the shelf
