Rethinking Life

I
just
read
an
article
saying
that
paper
books
will
soon
be
a
thing
of
the
past
but
you
can’t
write
in
the
margins
of
an
electronic
book
or
hide
things
between
their
pages
or
inhale
the
lovely
aroma
of
a
newly
opened
book
or
physically
bend
the
edges
of
an
electronic
page
or
press
flowers
between
its
nonexistent
covers
or
FEEL
the
turning
of
a
paper
page
with
your
fingers
and
you
can’t
stack
electronic
books
in
piles
on
shelves
and
on
floors

paper
books
take
up
space
they
are
colorful
and
warm
and
have
texture
and
weight
to
them
while
electronic
books
are
cold
and
flat
and
I
wonder
some
days
if
that’s
what
we
are
becoming
ourselves

How long can you be
alone with your thoughts,
no distractions: book
remains closed, TV off,
no idle conversation,
no music–just silence
and your mind? Where will
your thoughts take you?

Most people are afraid
of being bored, but why
would we find our perception
of our world boring?

Other people may fear being
faced with their ghosts
from the past. Regrets, guilt,
hurt, resentment, should haves…

Then there are worries about
the future; the “what-ifs” that
keep us a prisoner, afraid to
act, to decide, to go forth
with faith and resolve…
but
what if
undistracted
thoughts
lead us
into
discovery?

What might we find deep
within our consciousness?
What worlds unexplored,
full of possibilities and
promises are waiting for
us to be silent and aware.

“Family”

Words That Flow Like Water

Is nuclear.

Family, is the brother,

The sister,

The mum

And the dad.

 

Family,

Is the grandparents,

The uncles,

The aunts,

The family from all sides,

Near and far,

Close,

Extended.

 

Family,

The people that you love,

Cherish,

Argue,

Fight with,

Friends,

Lovers,

Husbands,

And wives.

 

Family,

Comes in all shapes,

All sizes,

All respects,

And all different.

 

Family,

We think about them,

When we are sad.

 

Family,

We hurt, when they hurt.

 

Family,

We love them, even if we hate them.

 

Family,

When you have none, those you love the most,

Become the people you call “family”.

 

“Family”,

Is like “home”,

Residing with those who you call your own,

Who love you for who you are,

Who respect what you respect,

And who you respect what they respect,

Who look after you when you’re hurt,

Bleeding, broken hearted, crying,

Who yell…

Just Me

Solitude…..

sitting alone
sometimes I just
want to be alone
no conversation
or pleasantries
just me
and maybe
God
but sometimes
just me

Introspection

Well written …….. worth pondering – ” when the talkers talk and the parsons parse and no one takes the time to go within”

Adopt an attitude of
confident correctness.
State your position
and then stop.
Explaining and justifying
weakens what you say.

Gently proceed while
remaining consistent
with your truth. Let
others react and act
as they will. You do not
have to change their
opinion–only be true
to what you know is
correct for you.
