Licking the icing on the lower things in life
Flipping childhood memories on the edge of Newton’s knife
Calculating gratitudes against the scales of strife
Pondering the lessons gleaned from being darkness’ wife

Talking relativity and loosening up the scope
Walking out the seeds of faith to harvest greater hope
Reliving through the tragedies to prove I didn’t choke
It’s not about the bloody breaks, but how you choose to cope

Nice to hear the vibe is raw, though it lives in spite of praise
These words are not a work of art, just a thought that’s been delayed
Wounds may heal, but I suppose, it depends on how they’re made
The strength of a wall that will not fall lies in the brick that’s laid

Suited up, defenses ride out layers of the heart
Crossing finish lines just so I can press restart
Dragging all this laundry ’round, but I won’t play the part
Flip the script and roll the film, the horse trampled her cart

Running free, these strokes unleash the all that I’m made of
Unyielding ox… cunning fox… gentle fleeting dove
Holding nothing firm accept His universal love
Dropping rhymes below, so I can keep my head above.

For Dungeon Prompts: Why do you blog?

    • I love this, Sreejit! I barely got through Amma’s quote before ideas started racing across my mind. And, man, can I use a global meditation right now! To focus on such concentrated thoughts will definitely help me get back to center on some areas I’ve been struggling with. You are blessing me, perhaps without even knowing it, and I am honored on many levels. β™‘ πŸ™‚

    • Aww… thank you, Sonya!!! I’m trying to make time to catch up on reading everyone else’s work too. I’ve been so swamped lately with work and family that the only time I even write is when I wake up in the middle of the night with something to say. Lol. I’m missing all the brilliance of you guys… but not for long! … having withdrawals… 😦


  2. Here the crowd in my head go “Whoooaaa!” The first two paragraphs I was feeling ashamed of my own prompt entry, but then you turned up the heat when you hit, “It’s not about the bloody breaks, but how you choose to cope,” Then you just got stronger and stronger until finally you killed me with the last line and the crowd went wild. I can’t help it, I must press reblog.

    • Oh wow… what an awesome response to my thoughts about being in this space… most of which are facilitated by you! πŸ™‚ I don’t think I’ll ever get used to such reception, which makes me love it even more. You’re going to create a monster!!! Lol. Cheesing ear to ear over here… thank you. β™‘
