"Gainfully Jobless".
Spend eight years in the navy
and you can be too.

Thank you for serving
our country! Does it not give
you some fulfillment?

This is the first one
In 2 days- that's kinda sad.
Defeats the purpose.

It has come to pass
that this page does not fulfill
me creatively.

It once did, but my
haikus have grown mundane, and
my passion dampened.

I plan on posting
sometimes, but I have other
projects calling me.

A haiku a day
is a tall order when you
have hours of schoolwork

But I don't mind it
I'm doing something with life
No more wasted days

No internet binge,
No wishing for better days;
I am in it now

You are what you want.
With discipline, change desires,
become something else.

Everything you think
is just as real as you make
it. Focus on dreams.

Got myself a job
In the heat, moving boulders
down in Florida

Heat exhaustion, it
seems, is a real danger here...
Just trust me on this.

It is time to quit.
Although I dislike quitting,
It is apparent

This place I work at
Is doing seriously
unsafe shit each day.

With no insurance,
and accidents in the wings,
It is the best choice.

Insidious is
danger when it hides under
money's promises.

Exercising Again

Twenty-five pounds, and
yet the weight of idle time
is much heavier.

Splinters of the past
hurt like a hand yanked back from
time's burning stovetop.

Great! I kept it up
for around 2 years, but then
others stopped posting.

It can be hard to
stay inspired when you're all
alone in the thread.

Now I don't post once
a day, but I still love the
format of haikus.

Lest you should tire, think
not of me. For I bowed to
calm in privacy.

Solitudes bring peace,
yet there are still noisy cars
of confounding thoughts.
