    Detoxification is hard
    The body tends to fight change
    the mind is slow to adjust to it
    any shift in the norm seems strange
    detoxification takes will power
    Incoming...sending an electrical pulse, a surge
    The power to function despite this charge
    to resist giving into the urge
    To sip that which gives temporary pleasure,
    but in the long run nullifies the mind
    to inhale or infiltrate the bloodstream,
    worse encounter of the negative kind
    Detoxify
    when common sense
    has taken a beating
    because of all the mistakes
    that you keep repeating
    Detoxify
    that which has been silently
    grilling you
    Is it actually YOU who has been slowly
    killing you?
    detoxification
    detoxify
    detox
    and renew
    yourself

    fightin off that vice grip of the soul
    tryin to regain some remnance of control
    grasp and try but it's got you in hold
    feels like it'll have you until you grow old

    you have to sit with it
    sit with the urgings
    the compulsions that seem to
    want to kill you
    let them run and go
    and just when you are ready to give up
    they run right out the back door
    of your mind
    set you free
    then you can see


    Feelin this piece to the depths of my soul, sister. Much love.

    i'm sitting in that urgent place
    wanting .. feeling like i'm needing
    compulsed and giving in
    and then
    detoxify
    and "remnants of control"
    electrify my eye
    and the DEVINE
    answering my prayer
    let me pass thru again
    because of you
    two

    And thank you deepy. Energy can be just that way, flowing from one to the other. Sometimes I think about the potential energy of a place like this...but, who knows? Anywho, I appreciate the flow back, and your enlightening response sista.

    toxicity of life we ingest...knowing
    we shouldn't...

    out of time...

    Much respect for this one...
