"Body Bag" Stars light crossed dashed across the sunlight sky. Topsy turvy drug induced coma titled her body as her chest crevice collapsed within. Motorcycle noise from across the hill with dim lit lights loud ear shattering tunes of joy play loud over intercoms. Burned flags,burned bibles rhetoric sand turned to stone. Space shuttle needle pricks the last fresh air atmosphere earth left not standing. Killer clowns roam stalk flock together sheath swords drip molasses covered in mustard. Hidden open chained fence shock the fingers dumb enough to touch them. Feet patter across the shingled roof as one jumps into the pool. Sewn shut eyes last gasp of fresh air. Cut long hair as summer heat rises burns at stakes eggs in a pan on the street. Not an ordinary street. Cloudless, rainless days became the norm while house plants thrived. Assault victims plead and beg for lost souls hope in eyes. Overcome by thoughtless actions segregated while train lines rough. Burley monstrous diseased men linger behind closed doors. Iron gates lock close fastly behind as time minds rewind shoulda stayed in school,do I remind? #writing#writingcommunity#shortstory#story#storytime#stories#creativewriting#poetry#poetryofig#authors#authorsofinstagram#publishers#thoughts#poem#readers#readersofig#poetrylovers#latenight
"Nothing is going to happen in the world until life itself is lived as the spiritual thing it is."
I am always fascinated by the smooth flow of transitions nature masters in the constant changes. It makes two different river flows effortlessly connected in a matter of time. How can we achieve that with our differences?...
Life is painful. The pain is your motivation to make changes. If you want to end your pain don’t avoid feeling your pain. Think about your suffering and what caused it. Contemplate the events deeply. Feeling your pain is a way to learn about yourself and it’s also the motivation to make improvements. If you avoid pain you avoid the message from within. What is the deepest part of you trying to tell you? Feel it. Contemplate. And discover the lessons. The lessons are always about you. Not the others. Which mistakes did you make and which changes do you need to make? The pain will help you remember the lessons well. Then forgive the past and take the information into the future. You can’t change the past. Every lesson is for today and tomorrow only. Not yesterday. New opportunities and events constantly come. Not everyday. Every year. So that every painful event holds a lesson which leads towards better choices today and tomorrow. ASK QUESTIONS. QUESTIONS. QUESTIONS. Of everyone and everything. Always be looking for the answers. So, with one small step at a time, the lessons you teach yourself lead to better choices and a better life. AND the only way to a better life is by making these improvements to yourself. YOU are not the house, the car, or the clothes. YOU end where you body ends, you extend no farther than your skin. Your heart, mind, and spirit are the only things you will have all the days of your life. So you must apply all lessons within. If no changes are made within (to your THOUGHTS, ACTIONS, AND CHOICES) then no lesson has been learned even when you remember it well. Internal changes are the foundation and root of all improvements to your life. You become the source. You are the center. And it spreads outward from you. Remember that this is a long term approach to life and it moves in harmony with the fact that life is a journey of decades. Every decade has many lessons to teach. Think of your life as a long and winding river. How much depth will you have when you reach the sea?
Era un uomo abbandonato al suo sogno che lampeggiava fioco, quasi fosse in procinto di spegnersi. Quanta passione in quegli occhi, quanta malinconia e delusione al tempo stesso, tanto da suscitare in me commozione e sopratutto rabbia. Come avrei voluto una bacchetta magica e coronare il suo sogno, il suo progetto. Perché anche se a volte litigavamo, io, a sua insaputa, facevo pace con le sue qualità da vero artista. Un'artista è capace di far svanire le note negative del suo essere, trasportandoti nel suo scomparto migliore, dove la musicalità si confonde con il battito del tuo cuore.
QOTD: What's your favorite book cover?
This is just a random pile of red books; sad that I forgot to include ACOL Anyway, I finished The Foxhole Court and really disliked it but this is unrelated, no offense to all 1000000 aftg fans, it's probably me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I'm probably gonna start And Then There Were None, or This Savage Song, when I'm done with schoolwork.
