we may be burying these bodies
but that doesn’t mean we should treat them like dirt
creating a heavy load for the earth to carry what we have already worn
or we may be burnt to ashes
that doesn’t mean we should become fragile and crumble
allowing ourselves to be carried away in the whirlwind of life
always assume the worst in people,
and their worst will come out.
something i’ve learned: others can help
you’re not alone
someone far away
or very close
is nurturing those demons tonight
who may not be as strong as you
or have the awareness
so know this is your gift
you are one step closer to transcendence
knowing you are truly above this will manifest in your reality and those demons will soon have vanished
which you won’t notice until the next time you go looking for them
and you’ll smile
you didn’t have to fight a battle
to have won
some days i have everything in order
i am on the ball
some days i am falling shorter
a dreamy piscean soul wishing to take flight
but i don’t know where to go
because some days for the sake of spite i can’t help but swim against the current
but most days it am with the flow
it has been hard wanting everything
while trying to grow
born to the water – g.c.
if it is a waste of time to just merely exist,
then why does just breathing feel so peaceful
we spend time,
looking for a purpose to fulfill,
i personally feel purpose,
when i am still
i am here – g.c.
Come to your senses
Break down the fences
Guarding your heart
Your mind is alert
But your soul is still asleep
Wandering with the sheep
Stand above it all
You are not crazy for hearing a different call
The shepherds voice
Is not your only choice
Anywhere you wish to go
Be quiet, patient, and know
i can not feel bad for desiring to be alone.
just me and my mind.
i can not continue to resist the obligation i feel to immerse myself in the external world.
the force i put on myself to be amongst others and to be normal
wears me down,
so that the pull inside of me that begs for me to nurture the self
gets tired and i let go of who i am all together.
i lose my hold on myself,
and become small in the large chaos of the material world.
i can no longer bare to hurt myself like this,
so i will immerse myself in both worlds.
when there is agitation in either,
i will sit at the seat of my soul,
and know all that is outside of me is within me.
i can chose who i am in the present,
and nothing can ever change that,
because all there ever really is is change.
anything that’s considered a responsibility becomes a task of misery,
the masochistic mindset only comes into play when the things that cause true harm are around,
a pain not initially felt,
but whose effects are lasting
to the initial pain that sometimes comes with participating in tasks that are balancing but whose effects will also last,
and instead bring great improvement and growth,
not bad habits that i grow to love and loathe
you imitate life like the shadows and forget that you are not the darkness
complete utter bliss and happiness felt for every aspect of life,
my life is not too grand to the majority,
but my life will grow,
i’ll remember that happiness does not depend upon if things are just so
where happiness comes from – g.c.
