I have books and books of Logan's writings that I feel should be shared. This journal is the easiest place to do that. Bit by bit I will go through and reproduce some of his writings here for all to see. If you reproduce any yourself, please credit him and his brilliance, his fire, his love. And please feel free to leave comments if you want. I won't be changing his words in any way, I will reproduce them exactly as he left them, some unfinished, some old, some new. He used to say that one day he would write a book that would change the world. I'd like to think maybe that's still possible!
Logan David Brooks 01/30/81 - 02/23/05 My love - My life.
twice thrown upon this cosmic stone an ageless wonder why we continue existence torn between the distant future we cry to shattered bones and empty skies decaying world we are the cause hatred and pain control us all
break the chains but the circle will burn forever heed the call but the message is always lost still we whisper for the age of aquarius hoping our ears are deaf, ignorance is more than bliss
weep to the fallen, the impact they had still fresh in the centuries, all remember none carry the hope, the flag, the power to change just continue to pray the empty skies hold the answer, shit on the earth and wait for entrance to heaven when this could be heaven
open your eyes, it's all lies everything means nothing unless you believe, we can stand and fight
These three were found in his work truck by his boss and two colleagues when they cleared it out before taking it away. The last one was read at his funeral by his boss.
In the present families laid to waste on their ancestors land they've become tenents lives of sheer disparity how could you claim purity of thought? of character? of relations? of superiority?
Fuck you and your flag your social ineptitude and your selfish existence I want freedom you keep the chains on me.
What if you saw debris fly? What if you burned in the napalm? What if you ate dirty rice all of the time? What if your house lay in the direct path of a bomb? What if your lungs were black from the mine? What if your kids were targeted as future terrorists?
What if men in uniforms watched you always? What if you were consigned to poverty? Your property taken by force your arched and aching back bent in pain your dying eyes can't see what we need we need to be free we all need to be free
What about your dirty water? What about your violent children? What about...(unfinished)
(his boss read this at his funeral)
We can stand on our own two feet we don't need coercion from above we don't need police to patrol our streets we don't need your hate, we want love over the skies of past victories we shall one day prevail
You won't kill our vision though you can kill our bodies (A)narchy lives forever and ever our black flag raised on high So spit on the boss and raise your fist (A)narchy lives forever and ever
Facists come, but they will always go the people's welfare not their priority lies, deceit, and greed holds them to their lowly creedo of asserting power over the broken populace this won't last forever one fine day we'll raise the black flag above the people
So now I'm vanquishing the clandestine demons that stubbornly refused to let go of me I let go of them
In the process destroying the antithesis make way for progress, recover from paralysis
Once set upon this shimmering idea husband your strength let go of my ignorance and fear no time to be weak drop my crutches, my excuses, and self-loathing forge a free path far away from mental shackles let my mind and spirit soar!
I breath the power I crave with the knowledge I save I'll break free of my grave my will is now set to overcome the negativity, the violence, the death I'll not lay down in misery anymore
feel now the rush is on I beckon the call, I break through stone walls seeking the power I want to taste knowedge is life and purity therein a time aeons pass through gilded arms and I am left with words strange how we talk so many words, meaningless and at times we sparkle speak of importance and it all falls on dreaming ears misunderstanding saves from raining tears Show the face, the form, the place the mediocrity, the illusion, the mockery give them a taste, a song, good grace let them sing, rejoice, let them live spread wings and rise like the sun above the wind in the airs embrace burst into light, brilliance out of place fall away from your earthly plane exhulted beauty you will know only living forever as absolute sovreignity
To see this night in the blade grass exhuming from the ashes a forgotten past as locusts swarm in frenzied desire I feel the warmth the soothing warmth I drown my sorrows I drink away my tears alleviate my fears this star has changed transformed to fight the brooding skies in the coming of the moon the light was reflected in her eyes and I stayed the same so far removed from the world of plastic so far so, so good, so what
