Pile It On

pile it on

let it reach to the heavens

fill the world with art

and through that perhaps

mankind can stop for

long enough to enjoy

that silence and peace

can come to everyone

Learn

Learn:

To hear with your eyes,

To speak with your touch,

To see with your ears.

Relearn all anew,

Awake the senses.

Normal

Delineate normal –

this foreign concept.

Does it signify that,

which is expected,

never deviating?

Your definition,

could use some work,

if what is expected,

is the strange,

the irreparable,

the dysfunctional.

In the Dark

Sitting in the dark,

will do little good,

either literally,

or metaphorically.

In a dark room,

the eyes struggle,

there is no visual,

stimulation.

In a darkened mind,

the mind’s eye struggles,

there is no learning,

enlightenment.

Thanks

Thanks

Humility

Is humiliation the

path to humility?

Or can we be brought,

down a few pegs,

lowered, humbled?

Do life’s tribulations,

ups, downs, failures,

bring us this ever,

important trait?

Can we cut this short?

This learning humility,

is killing me.

Genius

What is genius?

Who made up that definition?

Why does anyone care?

Having you look down

your nose at me

doesn’t make you appear

any smarter

and certainly not

like a genius.

It only means you

like yourself and

think highly of yourself.

That doesn’t equal genius.

It equals being an asshole.

Learning

the elderly couple waddled

slowly up the sidewalk

I could see they could just

barely get to the front door

as we all were headed for

the doctor’s office entrance

.

I slipped ahead of them

to hold the door open

they smiled warmly as

they assumed their places

in the check-in line

ahead of me

.

what can come from

situations like this

do we self-congratulate

for a notably selfless act

or do we learn something

.

do we find that the human

condition is common and

that we all share in it

can we appreciate the

struggles of total strangers

.

I’ve found that, as I age,

I see something totally

and absolutely different

when I see the elderly –

I see me in X-number of years

if I’m lucky enough to

live to see that age

and maybe someone younger

and much more able

will do the same for me

Purpose

age and illness have been

great, if not painful, teachers

for instance, I’ve learned

no matter how useless

my body may become

I can still serve a purpose

.

my body may devolve

into a twisted, painful mass

but as long as my mind

and my emotions are

even partially in tact

there is still reason to be

This Place

Rendered virtually,

voiceless and thoughtless,

subdued and laid bare,

pride lobotomized,

abandoned by friends.

For all this place has,

ever given me,

it countered equally,

by taking away.
