Monday Thoughts: Unwanted Territory

Some things scratch the surface while others strike at your soul.

Gianna Perada Carini

Life is a constant until we are gone. Regardless of what is happening in and around us, life is in constant motion.

With this life we attempt to live, enjoy, survive, find and share meaning on an almost daily basis. We have family, friends, associates, companions, all different sorts of relationships revolving around our existence here. We want to have the most fulfilling life experience there is to have (what is fulfilling to each individual).

Things do not always work out as we hope for and it can be disappointing. People do not always turn out to be who we think they are, either what we expect or who they present themselves to be. Life can push you to the limits of physical, mental and spiritual endurance and what you believe you can handle. We are not required, obligated or bound to suffering and mistreatment. At the end of the day we are alone in our innermost thoughts and feelings.

Choices and decisions are not always easy to make. Outside observers can give their opinion but they are not in your shoes or beneath your skin. It is our individual act, ours alone depending on the situation. You can be taken to the limits of reasoning and understanding and it doesn’t mean that you have to be pushed into territory that you don’t want to be or remain in. What good is life if you are not a part of your own..

Life is a constant regardless.

Hope Soars High

Everyday is another step up. Poor man’s pockets with a wealth of thoughts and dreams. Everyday is another step up. Wipe the sweat from my brow, willing the physical and mental to push on. The spiritual drinks from the well of The Most High. Everyday is another step up. Hope soars high, increasing the sentiment behind my sighs. One day it will all come together…

Two Sides of A Thought

pexels-photo-87460

Chasing lost days

Dead end paths

All cards played

And still, no winning hand

Goodbye to wine and roses

Goodbye to “what ifs?” and supposes

*

“Are you willing to give it your all or just a fraction of your heart?”

*

 

High above

Iron bird

Hopes jettisoned like relief aid

A heart awaits

Hands waving at the sky

Is this “hello” or “goodbye?”

Is this the dawn or twilight?

Beginning or end?

*

“The door was closed for a reason and I didn’t open despite how hard the sound of the knocking was”

Friday Inspiration: Omnipresent Light

Even in the darkness

I can see

Your light is forever

And within me

Darkness is temporary
