Waide Riddle readings

About “One Day”
Told from an aging man’s point of view. The changes of life are often times melancholy and sad.

Why did you write this particular poem?

“The sadness of current events surrounding us day to day… it came to me … taking my daily walks through the streets of L.A., West Hollywood, Hollywood, North Hollywood and Studio City. I see so much of the city’s past not cared about any more. Neighborhoods removed to make room for developers’ greed. A new generation that doesn’t seem to ever be present, or want to be. A press and media that seems to want to weaponize against the very people it’s supposed to be serving. “One Day” you wake up and you see the mess… and it’s over!”
