      1. This poem is so short but so evocative of my life! Indulgence, or in my case addiction, to drugs, alcohol, food, shopping and other things took me to the mouth of death. If I hadn’t been forced into rehab by my family I would probably be dead. Now a lot of my life is based on not indulging in the things I was addicted to before. http://bit.ly/1ER5cLY

  1. I can only hope that a few words that I write can bring you some comfort –
    Peace seem elusive – but I can still wish peace for you.
    Continue writing, talent is only what others judge…and all hearts need to be heard.

  2. You should update the content of this page. As well as your blog tagline. You’re still using the default text.

  4. General, thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and liking my current post. Interesting one line, should cause many to stop and think. Push by don’t cross the line, that is a trick few have learned. Take care, Bill

  5. Thank you for following my blog. Look forward to read more of your poetry and writings. Have a great weekend! Cheers, Mom of Dragon Boy

  6. Thanks for following 13th Paradigm. Looks like you’re having fun here. When I began blogging about a year ago, I never expected to enjoy it so much or meet so many wonderful people from all over the world. I’m glad you are finding enjoyment in the writing of poems and novels. Keep indulging, Alia

  7. Amazing words. I am thoroughly fascinated by the power and beauty of how you link your words. Thank you for the act of following my blog…and in turn exposing me to yours. Keep Inking brother!

    1. i regret that you cannot read or write in Gikuyu.you are missing alot.i can write something for you in Swahili,perhaps you’ll be in a position to read that.would you like that?

  8. Thanks for following my blog. I hope that you continue to enjoy it. My postings have been rather eclectic of late, but I hope to return to chronicling my book’s progress shortly.

  9. Hi, thank you for following my blog. Your blog is a colorful informative blog with ur word-art! am lucky to be here & hope to read more of u!! Have good times:)

  10. Surprise – A genuine poet decides to follow Profiles In Courage… Too soon we forget the lessons of history, and repeat the errors. All those who died to preserve something better, and here we are – have we learned nothing? Thanks for the follow.

    1. thank you for your kind observation, yes, it does take alot of courage and patience for a writer to venture in to the past, analyse the historical events and then give them form, which he considers more appropriet. he may decide to probe in to matters which the society considers abit sensitive and embarrasing. often, for superficial peace, people tend to pretend that their history was all flowery and full of victories, for vulgar cohesion and gains , contentious races have inpast and now pretend to be sorry for past attrocities they commited aganist their neighbours. heroes will come and go, what will remain is their name and fame for sacrifices they made during their life time. we have learnt alot from mans savage past and his struggles in liberating himself from folly, equally he has fell and arose.human dignity is what man strife for, if undermined, disaster and contention comes to being. thank you.

  11. I find it a bit quizzical, that an obviously serious writer such as yourself, would take interest in my blog about art and decor. My meager poetry attempts (on the blog) are for fluff and fun. Whatever the reason, thank you for visiting my blog, and for sharing thoughts on yours.

    1. your lines are very disarming, i find your wits far more superior to my meager ones.it was my pleasure following you because you deserve it. do not under estimate your talent, keep up the good work. thank you.

  12. Thanks for following my blog.
    I had a look through yours, it’s really good, I’m looking forward to stopping by more often.

  16. I am pleased that you found the Blog where I write about photography. I notice that yours covers many topics, where as I only will deal with photography from my personal perspective and involvement.
    I plan on wandering thru your site reading your poems and the links you include, as I get to know you.

  17. Hello – Thank you very much for dropping by and liking my poem, and following my blog! I’m come to visit your site to find out more about who you are and what you do.

  18. I can’t decide if I want to know more about you, or continue to enjoy your poetry without context! Thanks for following WordBowlbyMsCharlieS (i look forward to a word from you!) and thank you for introducing me to your powerful work.

  19. Thank you for following my blog. I’ve only read a few of your pieces, but I’m engrossed. Your gift is indeniable. Creative non-fiction is my concentration, so as “newbie” to poetry, I’m honored by your encouragement.

      1. why don’t you write something in Bahasa for me I see whether I can understand the meaning, I am not a speaker of Bahasa but your question puzzles me, perhaps you can even teach me how to write and speak in Bahasa. Thank you

  20. Thank you for liking a post. I hope you found the Jumping Judy spider. They hide like the desert and quick to jump when you want to catch it on camera

    Thanks for following. I’m a happy camper now you are joining me as I trip around by RV, plane, car and time machine to the past.

  25. Thanks for following my blog, I just followed back and looking forward to reading some posts and reading the poetry.

  26. Hello, Thanks for following my blog – will you really follow it or are you looking for hits? My present aim is to write a story a day for 30 days. 6 done so far. I shall look at yours very soon.

  27. Do you know that if I keep on going with blogging forever, I will not get tired of the connections it brings about. Just my way of saying thank you for subscribing to Learning from Dogs. You also being my 1,000th follower, by the way!

  28. Thank you firstly for following my blog and liking the story. What was more joyful was to see to be liked by people of different world but that we all share the same aspirations when it comes to love, life or forgiveness

  29. I want to say a belated “thank you” for following “A Way With Words.” I find great joy in writing that is only surpassed when someone reads what I’ve written. As you’ll see, I write primarily about faith and mental illness, but I’m known to cover other topics on occasion as well as share a few stories (fiction and non-fiction) and even some rare poetry, so if you have any suggestions, just let me know.

    I appreciate your poetic efforts here and hope to read more in the future. I pray you are blessed in your life and writing.

  30. Hi..I love your blog..just read a couple of poems. Beautiful.

    And I am so sorry, but I will sink into indulgence whether you are pleased with that or not! πŸ˜€

    Keep posting. I’m ready for reading. πŸ™‚

  31. Thanks for complimenting my blog. I consider it as a bunch of mind states thrown into the words.
    Messy, just like me πŸ˜€

    And do not be afraid, I have no intention of drowning.

    I’m desperate for mind indulging, so I’ll just float and enjoy every second of it!

  32. I enjoy your poetry…especially one of your most recent poems, “Aside”. And thank you for liking my post and following my blog. I sincerely appreciate it!

    1. Thanks for the effort that you have made. I appreciate your taking time to visit this blog. I have been going through your blog also,I admire what you are doing. Keep it up.

  33. Thank you for following our Blog generaliregi, it is appreciated and we hope you will be blessed as we share about life together.

    To enjoy oneself is needed, we were even given the gift of Laughter but over indulgence ends in emptiness and feelings of loss, we need to fill up on what gives full satisfaction and that is Faith in Jesus, who fills us up so we overflow with Joy.

    Christian Love from us both – Anne.

  34. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I pray you’re enjoying yourself–not sinking in indulgence, which seems to bring many good men and women down in the end. Even though they seem to have power and even fame (or infamy).

  37. Hi there Geraliregi and thank you for the follow.

    I’m here to check you out, as they say, and I’m pleased I did. I noticed the Mau Mau tag at the top of your blog and that piqued my interest.

    I was born in Mombasa in 1953 and spent some years growing up in those times of unrest and uncertainty. At present I am doing some research on the Mau Mau for a portion of my personal story.

    How serendipitous for us to find each other.

    Linda from QP πŸ™‚

    1. I’m glad we a share a common interest. Mau Mau is a complex topic that tend to absorb one with unexplainable intensity. I would really love to read or hear of some of your accounts growing up in the heat of anti colonial war. Most of my poetry is preoccupied with this period (1952- 1965)- allahgeneral@gmail.com is my email address. lets share our experiences

  38. Thank you GeneralIreqi for electing to follow my blog. I hope you find more posts you enjoy reading or can take issue against. I was reading some of your poetry since I used to write my own twenty years ago.

  39. thank you most sincerely for following my blog. I am most interested in exploring your site, you seem to be an extremely interesting person. hope we get to enjoy one another’s work

  40. Thanks for following my blog. So many comments…would be nice to have new comments space at the top instead of the bottom so as not to have to scroll through hundreds of comments. Not meaning this to be rude….just a suggestion for consideration.
    Thanks again!

  41. Hey thar Brother – what say you an’ me get together for a pow wow about this war your on and how we can advance its cause. I mean it is War isn;t it and that means uns and such and so it would be better if we just made Love (to other people) don;t you think? Who do you have your eye on then, Buster Brown? I’ll do it if you won;t – let’s see who in like Flynn and who out with Flout be, huh? Cool. Bioman

    1. Hi there Bioman. Glad to see that I’m not alone here.War and stuff, all directed to degenerates who call themselves leaders.You can join me, or rather i can join you to uproot all these crooked rogues. We should indeed get together. Thank you very much.
