The Cat

The Cat

Running through the Forrest
Faster
Up and over
Birds chirping
Crickets creaking
Branches falling
Leaves crackling
Under her soft feet
As she picks up the pace
Through the green Forrest
Running faster
Stopping suddenly
Crawling now
Slowing
Her heart pacing
Lower she goes
Closer
Slowly
Slowly closer
Her eyes widening
As she stalks closer
Getting ready
Almost now
Stopping
Pausing
Her backs legs
Ready to fire
Waiting for her pray… Read the rest

Chaos

Chaos

Sitting here
Lost in the chaos
Of reality
The tortures
Of lies yet
I struggle on
Fighting the fight
Never quiting
Sitting here by you
I feel the lies
I smell the deceit
Yet I sit here
Hoping it wasn’t
A lie
That is was reality
But am I deceiving myself
With your games?
Should I run
What to do
For the lying walls
Are starting to crumble
The turmoil… Read the rest

I Don’t Want To Be A Hoarder

I Don’t Want To Be A Hoarder

There is this ad that I saw on Adweek, I’ve put it below, of how we text and walk in Cape Town but end up walking into things. The ad is funny but the end is a little bit of a shocker. I love it though. Check it out:

The other thing though, is that everywhere you go you see this, people glue to their phones and even now on … Read the rest

Small Spaces

Small Spaces

This poem was supposed to be a challenge that a friend suggested. It was meant to be about living in small spaces but I thought, seeing as most of live in our heads, that this poem would be better suited to be about the battles and small spaces we call our thoughts.

Have a read below and let me know what you think of the poem in the comments section … Read the rest

Father and Son

Father and Son

I wrote this poem for my son, Grayson. He stays with mom and I see him at every chance I get. It’s a lot but still, the fact that I don’t come home to him is a tough to get used to. No matter how long its been like this.

He is the most important person and aspect of my life and would do anything for him. Check out the … Read the rest

Change Is As Good As A Holiday

Change Is As Good As A Holiday

There is that age old saying again. You, like me, have probably heard to many times to count. It’s actually annoying now because is it really true? Is change really as good as a holiday in our day an age?

Change is as good as…

The last couple of days have really gotten me to think hard and re-evaluate who I am and where I am going. Partly the reason … Read the rest

Gary Clark JR, a genius

Gary Clark JR, a genius

We all love music, it’s a passion that every single one of us have and some are far more obsessed with music than others. I find myself a little more obsessed than most. I don’t know why but I just have to have copious amounts of music tracks for every moment.

The music finding bug hit me yesterday evening and I was searching through YouTube, SoundCloud, Google, iTunes and more … Read the rest

The Purpose Of Me & Myself

The Purpose Of Me & Myself

Photography by GusI almost feel sorry for this domain or website. I have put it through so many changes because I couldn’t truly find a solid purpose for the site. I just didn’t know what I should be doing with it because I have my main site, Gus van der walt, which is all about me in the working space etc.

But as I sit here writing this post, after many … Read the rest

Choices

Choices

Life is complicated machine, it never settles for long enough for us to really become comfortable with our situation. There is always some fancy wicked curve ball that decides to hit us on the head. We lay there wondering what the hell just happened? We never ever see it coming.

In some twisted way I like that though. Some people get by just fine living that boringly comfortable life day … Read the rest
