I work on what I can today


To distract me from worrying about tomorrow, I work on what I can today.

At times we decline opportunities to pursue our dreams, which causes us stress. I’ve been through it with my political and legal career, and now I’m going through it with my recent goals in the private sector. Focusing on what I can work on now has helped me move forward on my journey, even through the roughest parts. I wish you the best in your journey. I’m feeling you and cheering for you!

With Warmest Aloha, Jon

Confined In My Mind


Confined in my mind.

Let me out, I want to scream.

Cutting my own chains.

I love the feel of books being physically with me.


I love the feel of books being physically with me as well as their soul. I have books on shelves in my living room and office. I also have stacks of them on my nights stands on both sides of my bed. When reading before bed, books don’t radiate blue light like when reading from a computer, pad, or smartphone. Further, I take a book with me on trips or to the coffee shop.

Pretend For One Day


I still think of you.

Even if you never cared.

Pretend for one day.

You Dance In My Dreams


It has been some time.

I protect you from afar.

You dance in my dreams.

Like a Ghost Crying


How can the truth live,

if it has to be believed?

Like a ghost crying.

I am not a dream


If you are dreaming,

Lie to me, tell me you’re dead.

I am not a dream.
