Learning, what and how

We learn all the time, that’s for sure. We don’t have to go to school to learn, but when we go to school we learn there too. What is it that we learn? That is the question, an important one, the only one that really matters. What do we learn? Once that question is discovered,…

Suffocation

Fear and anxiety Insecurity Distorted perception Suspicion, sarcasm a form of aggression Denial of all these the doors shut to healing only the perpetuity of all the feelings loneliness, shame, longing Love just a myth all those who appear to have it therefore just pretending which is a form of lying and herein lies the…

Slow down or race right along

Chasing is exhausting Yet we chase We are born into the race And so we learn to hurry up From early on Tired the norm Our state of being Hard to remember Anyway There is no time for that Remembering Life’s too short for that Who wants to live in the past Anyway Let alone…

Myth makers

And it was evening and it was morning, another day.  And we said, let there be love. And then we lived it, we made it so. We chose to be gods: to love and forgive, not ignorant of your humanness our shadowside, our tiredness. It’s is not by pretense that we become gods but by…

Love is not a fairy tale, it is a myth

Conquest

god should have made girls lethal when he made monsters of men – Elisabeth Hewer Conquest.

Misunderstood

As I mentioned in my last post, writing is a sort of healing and discovery process for me. What I write does not relate to any specific person or situation. More often than not, it is an attempt to express the feeling or meaning of many experiences and observations. We all experience life through different…
