On Conflict

Our brains require stimulation. In one way or another, we always look for it. Some of us look for stimulation of our physical senses. Others search for other external stimuli such as conversation or discussion. Still fewer of us seek inner stimulation.

Few of us seek to use the same content, to remix and create with what we already have. The same can never stimulate like the different. The same produces a resistance, familiarity, expectations, comfort. That is why our entertainment centers around conflict whether it be sports, dramas, novels, debate, politics, or even business.

We say we want peace. Yet, the truth is, few actually do. If we had peace, many would be forced to confront our internal conflict. Most of us fear dealing with this because like every story arch, the end follows a resolution. Many of us fear, not the end of our story, but the end result. We fear becoming the final version, for it may not be what we want. We forget, that we may, yet, win.

Clean

If there is no mess

There is no trace

There was no one





If there is no picture

There is no proof

There was anyone





If there is no improvement

There is no contribution

There was nothing





If there was no one

If there wasn’t anyone

If there was nothing





Was there an existence?





IS there a story to tell





If there was no one

If there wasn’t anyone

If there was nothing





If I clean up my messes

If I don’t take pictures

If I don’t contribute

Can I erase the traces

Will I have never existed

Will I be nothing





If there was no mess

I wasn’t there





If there are no pictures

I wasn’t there





If I didn’t contribute

I wasn’t there





Someone else can make a mess

Someone else can take a picture

Someone else can contribute





Someone else was there

Torn

Beautifully ripped

Seams frayed

Threads open

And on display

This thousand count sheet

Pulled end to end

Bleeding warmth

(Breathing away?)

Covering from end to end

Protecting from the cold

Keeping warmth and darkness

In between

Millions on millions of threads

Threads strong against the wind

Threads strong against the cold

Threads strong within walls

Threads strong within Nature

Threads strong against fire

Threads strong versus heat

Versus water

Versus smoke

Versus nature

Breaking with love

Blazing Tears

Tears well inside

One’s eyes like

The emotions trapped

Sometimes they overflow

And drop onto

The nearest surface

They color everything

Surrounding them the

Same as Light

They bathe you in warmth

They bathe you in cold

They bathe you in Colors

That always make you feel

These colors help you see

Sometimes they help you breathe

These colors glow

Sometimes they pale

Tears can light a fire

Pizazz

Sparkles

And sugar

And everything nice

What

It takes

To have it

Add

Smiles and

Beach waves (optional)

Wear

Glitter and

Six inch heels

Straight

Walking towards

The end goal

None

Even consider

Crossing your path

Sparkles

And sugar

And everything nice

Seem

To run

Through your veins

Always

Sparkle and

Shine

Even

Without the

Heels

Especially

Without the

Glitter

But

Mostly with

Smiles

Sparkles

And sugar

And

All

That is nice

Plus

Some spice

Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! I had considered starting a blog for a while but never had the guts to do so. On this blog you’ll find an assortment of things: experiences, reviews, rants, poetry, political observations and maybe even a picture or a video. 🙂 I will probably also shamelessly advertise the talent of my friends, although I don’t know who benefits most from that. Anyways. Feel free to leave comments and send constructive criticism. I appreciate any involvement and hope you visit again. 🙂

 

Have a great day

Extra

Sometimes I consider that I am merely an extra

But to be extra,

Means to bring additional value

Chaos

In chaos, there is beauty

In chaos, there is grace

In chaos, I find serenity

In chaos, I find peace

In chaos, there is no chaos within

In chaos, there is no chaos about

In chaos, there is no struggle, no doubt

In chaos, I thrive

In chaos, I win

In chaos, my instincts are driving

In chaos, my mind takes a backseat

In chaos, my reflex is sharper

In chaos, my moves suit

In chaos, I thrive

In chaos, I win

Chaos, my serenity
