give and take holds wit prisoner
how it all runs together
movement is the only answer to pain
the silent prayer is often the deepest
to open eyes is the strongest principal
no one mind connects ubiquitously
carving paths, the singular melds to one
living for today as if it is all days
and so the better way to worry is to know you are free
how far does the last drop of time fall?
water and wind
ripples chase to the shore
lakes of memory
brimming with tears
perplexed and somewhat
for everything that had to end
in everything that demanded permanence
we shuffled no answer
better than the moment
and the moment breathed
for the sake of mountains, stretched
for the reality
that could not float to the surface
when better ways are fought
and lost before they are won again
Top of anything
Decided by decent
Forever a wish
Brought on by improvement
The world looks out
When I look in
would have been same in nazi germany — the jews are like poisoned candy. we have to kill them all, even good ones because you just don’t know. one rotten potato spoils the entire crop, you know!
it goes beyond fear of someone for their skin color or their hair or how they dress … and into the realm of being afraid of all the skittles, because some might kill you. it is fear then of what you can’t see, as well as what you can see.
and that comes down to very little faith in God, it really does. Or if agnostic, would be very little faith in luck, in survival.
if you live your life in fear, then you aren’t really living. and that means the enemy has won. you just don’t know it.
analogies like the skittle argument are not uncommon, but with people we generally say “one bad apple don’t spoil the whole barrel.”
and i like the saying, “get to know me first, and THEN hate me!” it speaks a very large truth — can’t tell a book by its cover. “all the world’s a stage, we are merely players.” but don’t let them play you, because all analogies eventually unravel. it’s the reality that matters.
