Bad Habits

I need to stop drinking, overeating, lack of sleeping and a few other things.

I need to stop spending, bending the truth, and missing my poops.

Who cares if I share, constantly stare or talk like a rambling rogue.

The matter is grave, when I spend what I save, and hide all day in my cave.

What about my soul when I forget to think, or stand on the brink or act like a dink?

Stand on the bring is a bit of a stretch and so is save and cave.

But I am trying to find a pattern to the ‘hole in my soul’.

There is a void that tends to fill up with the nearest thing at hand when it is left or neglected for long periods of time.

Craving and paving, will to power, bad substitutes for basic needs and complicated deeds.

A calling like poetry acts like a balm to a sore self.

The ante is getting too rich for me:  my payment is better than death and taxes, love or life, or blood and tears.

“There And Back Again”, no pattern or analogy is sufficient.

Better try some good ones.

The Heart Of The Matter (It’s all part of it.)

Sometimes, life bleeds for us.

We do our best to overcome this disease.

Lesions on the heart and inflammation eventually cause us to suffer beyond all hope.

Yet, this only happens to a few of our brood.

Eventually, we recover, the majority of us prevail and we swim through life until our next challenge invades our otherwise peaceful existence.

Many of us are looking for a way to be.

We have tried using a ‘stiff upper lip’, salvation, and resignation, but they are not the best ways.  We still believe in the ‘will to power’.  Yet, we can not escape the quicksand that issues are causing for us today.

More is what we want.  More materials and peace of mind, we want it all.

But our disagreements, technology, and environmental impacts are taking a toll on our well being.

Yet, we continue to evolve.

As each generation passes, our evolution has made ‘the scientist’ our new  ‘head honcho’ in so many ways.

Yet sub culture abounds with city dwellers, and country living, and the rich and poor.

What do we all chit chat about?

The answer is like writing a book with no intension of selling it or letting your loved ones read it.

The ‘self affirmation’ needs more than a mere participant.

We need to think long and hard.

Do you feel better?

Do you want to think about it?
