I left the heater on last night
with the window open
Most people aren’t very observant
We are lost in what we want
and nothing else matters
or the present
We can’t fight this fundamental need
but we might be able to surrender to it.
It’s comforting to know, something could be happening under the noses of the people I know, and they wouldn’t know
Any changes that happen, within ourselves, we must advertise, or so we think
“I’ve started this new diet—where I eat salad every three hours.”
or “I’ve decided to work-out three times a day.”
or “If I write three times a day, I’ll become a writer.”
Nobody really listens—including ourselves.
I had this dream about running into somebody I know in the department store
wherever I went, they kept bumping into me, but we didn’t want to talk to each other
Eventually, I had to say “Hi” because the coincidences were too high
and we were forced to eat lunch together—being polite.
It’s not that I dislike this person—it’s just that I am very uncomfortable being around them
for no apparent reason.
I trust these feelings—and I no longer feel guilty.
I’m thankful that my higher self, chooses my friends for me.
We must decide what we are going to do with every day of our lives
and if you have that—you have a life.
Without some grand purpose we have built-up in our minds—life is just a prison
and death is a reprieve.
I’ve spent years unconsciously—selecting bits and pieces of characters—fictional and real—who I would like to be
they all are strange—in their own way
and I have become them—something I admire.
Whether or not this life is sustainable—only time will tell
it laughs at us all, and to laugh with time
is to do the most important thing
