Wish me strength

I offer this poem as a way to share and perhaps give strength to others as I approach a life-long awaited moment which I only recovered a memory of need for a decade ago. It has been a journey. And I am remembering it now.
.
.
I dive in now
.
long has been the wait
long has been the life
recent has been the memory
so,
.
through Monday’s therapy
I dive in to find me
.
a ten year journey
strange
.
i am talking to myself now
of the chance to rearrange
who is me.
.
we will talk of surviving
somehow
.

Advice on the Creative Way of Being from a Good Friend

anna solo.jpgBe kind to yourself.

It’s a crazy and recently very sick world but you are of great value and uniqueness in it and are well loved so relax and play your part with dignity and show yourself the kindness you show to me and only ONLY follow your bliss, not your duty.

I will be there one day soon.

I think success is difficult, by the way.

It is Shakespeare’s bubble of fortune and though it’s great, it is ego led and driven so on one level false so we are dependent on others for approval and less able to fall in love with ourselves.

It can leave us bewildered and alienated when we think we should be on cloud nine.

You have great wisdom in you.

You need never be afraid.

A reply from a friend

Well said!!

It’s so easy to feel a failure to have low self-esteem in this world of, seemingly, successful, people, but true happiness comes from loving yourself for what you are and for what you can give in the way of kindness to others.

It took many years but I got there in the end

On indoctrination…

history-tabviking-life-taboldman-tabviking comics inc tab.jpgpoetics tab.jpgrants tab.jpgchat tab.jpgspooky tab.jpggby-tabnewsnext

On indoctrination…

God stole my friend away

He used Elspeth to take her

I knew I had lost her

As soon as she met her

The change in her; immediate

Slowly turning to terrible

I regret bitterly that day

Drugged with the word of joy

To becoming withdrawn

To become paranoid

Embittered with the mission

Conversion

Or damnation

If you can get any conversation

It is embroiled with suspicion

Every little thing I say:

An internal investigation

Closure of mind is palpable

From a list of the unacceptable

Elements of my interests

Judged internally as

The work of the devil

God took my friend away

This thing, of evil reeks

I no longer believe her

That it is god who speaks

The Reclamation of Love

history-tabviking-life-taboldman-tabviking comics inc tab.jpgpoetics tab.jpgrants tab.jpgchat tab.jpgspooky tab.jpggby-tabnewsnext

I don’t do art, draw, or paint; I create images to compliment a poem or a story. This one says, ‘Read my poem; be inspired to love’

The Reclamation of Love

I think I’ve found love

and this time it is going to last

It came on fast

It let me know it is here to stay

This love has spoken of forever

Coming to me in a moment

In the petals of a flower

The seven hour scenery

Had many

Only one leapt out at me

This is a love of everybody

A love of me

Sadness told me

Lost love loses everything

Letting the feelings of failure

Come flooding

Forgetting enthusiasm

A trap of remembering

Saying

Never again

Never never again.

Never, be reliant on being,

of being better,

because of someone

Then, while thinking of others

of knowing

of helping

of contributing

I saw this one simple thing

Love is for experiencing

of living within

In the petals

of a passing flower

In that blessed glance

I rejoin the glorious dance

The song

The song I shall sing

Is

Love,

is in everythingfoxglove love
