    what would happen if you
    poured the drinks out
    threw away the weed
    would you figure out
    what you really need?
    what would happen if you
    turned away from the distractions
    quit staying so busy
    would you run into what you've been avoiding?
    would you have to stand still?
    what would happen if you
    quit using sex so much
    stopped the serial monogamy
    would you be left looking in the mirror
    staring at your fears?
    what would happen if you
    quit playing so often
    didn't spend all that money
    would you meet your demons?
    would you have to exorcise them?
    what would happen if you
    quit running
    felt the fear and did it anyway
    would you love yourself?
    would you become your own ultimate?

    Wow gempis, I loved this introspective piece. There is so, so much that we do that is merely filler, taking us away from ourselves as it were. And as I think of it, some things I would try to exorcise, others are beyond what I fix. Thanks for giving us reason to ponder.

    I've been reading a great book this weekend, and the author talks about all the things we do to avoid facing the truth, and our fears. That's what inspired this, and thanks with all my heart, you two, for vibin my flow.

    hmmm...this line was just so profound
    Sister...most of us when we look within
    ...always run
    unable to bear the reality of what we
    often can not change...but instead
    of embracing those jagged edges
    of ourselves...we drown them in
    substances of all kinds...

    Clever, raw and stirring...
    My thoughts and emotions raced
    with images of so many people
    I know in this state of being...

    *Snaps*...
    Feeling this...
    Sage

    'embracing those jagged edges of ourselves' is a brillant way to put it. Shoot, sister, even in your replies you wax profoundly poetic. Thanks for your words, for feeling me, and for your undying support. :hearts2:
