Light

The deal is no matter what, no matter how bad things get or are that we try. Even in the worst of times we must remember there will be light, someone, somewhere waiting.

Steinbeck

Steinbeck

There ain’t no sin and there ain’t no virtue.

There’s just stuff people do.”

~ John Steinbeck

___________

He was and still is a huge influence on my writing to this day. His work, you may find is also an influence on my new book, “The Bones of Our Existence, A Journal 2046”. The daily struggle of mankind and humanity, compassion, will always exist. Bukowski once said it’s how we walk through the fire. Steinbeck’s books showed us how.

In the end?

We are all survivors.

~R.M. Engelhardt

The Bones of Our Existence, A Journal 2046 Coming March 15th …

In the dark times
Will there also be singing?
Yes, there will also be singing
About the dark times.”

—   Bertolt Brecht

The Bones of Our Existence 2016

R.M. Engelhardt‘s new book The Bones of Our Existence, A Journal 2046 will be revealed March 15, 2016 online and is “an entirely new concept in regards to the way the book is to be released as well as to be presented.”

This book will be absolutely free to the public and is one man’s journal of poems set in the aftermath of the post-apocalyptic future of 2046 written by an unknown survivor who in the forms of prose and poetry looks back and reflects upon his life, loves and battles (within and without) over the last some 40 years.

The book is part science fiction, part humanity and even part Thoreau, but mostly it is the memoir of a man, who like the future we all thought would get better, has lost his way but who still believes that the words, our souls and our voices, poetry still … and will always matter.

The Question

So let us ask the question;

Of transformed galaxies and

Mass produced vanities

Of simple walks and simple talks

Of kings and queens and limousines or

Riding on the bus

And let us ask the question;

Of random death and high school fun,

Of Chinese checkers replacing guns,

Of starving children in the sun and

Monsters on parade,

And let us ask the question;

Of an American government’s slow decay,

Of gods of war and these violent days,

Of a well meaning people led astray

And those who blindly march,

And let us ask the question;

Of the cost, the price

And the wait
