It didn't start with you. And it sure doesn't end with you. It goes on and on and on, indifferent. Maybe you'll be there; maybe you won't, to see it, but it will go on anyway. That's all you can ever be sure of.

The times they were real mean then and they're even meaner now. They sure ain't getting any better now you're travelling all alone. Just got to keep on moving on and keep ahead of greater misfortune.

Bringing of the Self into Being, to give a birth to one's own soul, is constantly constrained and confined by government and by the state's schooling of society and of citizenry to force compliance for abortion.

Love and kisses I'll miss you World. It's been a fun ride. Wish it had been longer. Should have taken few more detours sure but glad of them I took; many stoplights along the way, proud managed to run some.

They're all dying now, all the old rockers. Cocaine and cognac catches up with you in the end. But while they were alive, they burned with a pure blue light, and that's really all that matters with the sputtering of the flame...

The Now that seems to exist does so through multiple entangled timelines from the past. Whatever was makes whatever is. But what was isn't one single thread: Past is woven tapestry of many possibilities.

Harder to know and still harder more to be able to understand; why is the world the way it is, and how did it get that way? Don't make no sense at all. Really ought be different; but then, I guess so should I.

Whenever the State shall knock upon your door and will say with sly smile and disarming grin: "We are here to help and to assist you to make your life even more wonderful and free." Slam the door on them!

As long as I can keep going I'll keep on going. I'm funny that way. Sure, no one cares and none shall remember; then, just occasionally someone recites something, a small thing, and I say: I wrote that.

That which I am and that which I would be can't be the same. If they were congruent or were identical, I could not be. I must be always divided from myself; for, in this division, in this difference, I survived.

The barren Void, this place of pulsing power, seeks within itself expansion of Nothingness; seeks within itself a greater, a more profound Emptiness and by doing so balloons into being the birth of everything.

DRUID PRIEST: POET & PHILOSOPHER
Story
Tagline
The true priests of our age are its poet-philosophers and I am blest to be one of them. William O'Connor
Introduction
Poetry and Philosophy works by William O'Connor are available on both Amazon and on Barnes & Nobel.

It is set in the far future, and tells of the many inevitable tribulations and tests to be undergone by the coming, new, and the eventual succeeding, human species. The premise of the SF series is that once the total human population exceeds eight billion, a bifurcation of species must occur; and a new human species shall eventually evolve. New philosophies and new theologies will necessarily occur with such human evolution. I am also engaged in the process of publishing "The Cliffs and Their Caves," a collection of cave bear children's stories from Ballydavid Head, Dingle, Kerry, Ireland. I am sole owner of Rothcroi Publications, my only publisher. I use Amazon as my sole distribution channel. I compose poems directly on my Blog.  I do that so I know how a poem looks electronically. These "Blog Poems" constitute my unedited first drafts.  When I have enough Blog poems, I edit them in MS Word and after the edit is finished, save as a DOC file; then go on to publish a paperback and an e-version of the book, both with AMAZON; Create Space for the paperbacks and KDP Select for the digital books. Aside from poetic art, I'm working on my Ren-Taijiquan Boxing and Fencing skills for the physical aspect (Peekskill has a Ren-Taijiquan Boxing and Fencing Club), and I am avidly practicing the Dingle-Druid Seven Stars Society religious way (those bird postures) for the mental psychic aspect. Because of its high royalty rates, I'm using Kindle Direct Publishing's KDP Select as my sole agency for digital distribution. My works are available on Google Android devices bearing the Amazon KINDLE APP; My poetry is directly created upon my BlogSpot Blog. My prose is directly created as a long Note on EverNote Premium. I use the Internet as the creative medium for both my poetry and prose. Regard teaching, I only teach Seven Stars System; nothing else. The Seven Stars Society is a: "Mensa for Psychics." I am both a Mensa Member and a Druid of the Dingle Order (Druid of the Dingle sect wear the sky-blue cockade of The She {ANU} in order to distinguish their Druid Order affiliation). With regard to recognition signals, the right palm is placed on the heart, with the palm facing inward, with three fingers extended: the small, the ring and the middle, representing Crom, Dagda, ANU respectively, while ball of thumb is folded over nail of index finger; the circle made by the thumb and the forefinger affirms an eternal renewal.This circle is the origin of the common "OK!" signal. Since the genre most read today is science-fiction fantasy, and I do wish and I do want to be read widely, As much as I love writing poetry, and I would like to do nothing but write poetry, as I can write poetry as well as anyone can, science-fiction fantasy is what people wish to read. So I shall be publishing in that genre (along with my poetry) for the remainder of my life. If anyone needs to contact for any reason my gmail address is oconnor.rothcroi.william@gmail.com
