    the earth is beginning to blister beneath the sweltering sun
    children playing grills talking tells me summer has arrived
    yet i stand in skepticism trusting just one sense
    ignoring the evidence i only feel the cold
    the space i occupy has whirling winds tossing me like a salad and when it stops i am dazed and confused and still cold
    the chill in my skin disregards the sun on my face while
    disrespecting the beauty of life in motion before me
    i stare at this scene and decide it must be a fictitious account of what i long for because my ears ache my fingers are numb and i'm walking on bricks can't feel my feet
    when i arrive home i reach for the thermostat already on 90
    turn off the lights and as i drift off the dream of a better tomorrow begins

    "therefore since you are neither hot nor cold I will spew you from my mouth"

    there's a reason for every season
    you are winning with every failure
    you are growing with every pain
    you are reaching without seeking
    only know...IT'S ALL THE SAME

    :) one love :)

    I just thought I had to say...

    that after re-reading this piece
    4 times -- it got deeper and deeper
    and began to evoke my own feelings
    .....whether they be hot, or cold...
    or lukewarm and tepid...
    anyway -- I want to commend you
    for such a sharp -assed piece!
    This is definitely tyght, and thank you
    for sharing it here...
