Light Steps

Is this all the dreams talked about?
Will the steps get smoother?
All that I see has some hint towards an inevitable 
I see people once friends, now evil towards each other
With others, little and pure, paying the price
I see some that had made a life together
Suddenly not together
I feel the hands and arms that held close
So long ago now
Slipping away. Their teachings and guidance
Hard to remember but needed.
There is so much out there, in The World 
That is anger and madness
Why do we make more with the ones close?
It seems that is the way of things

Take and hurt. To hit back

Well fuck that.
I am out of anger and hate and I have stepped away from
The edge. The view never what it was sold as.
Now it is an embrace of what is inside
Acknowledge strengths and passions
Things could have been better
Lives could have been easier
Days could have been sweeter
But this is life. It never was meant to be a pass.
I couldn’t ask for more.

Step smooth with me.

The piccies on the blog make me want to get fitter.

the idea in the poem is brilliant, but in life it is very difficult to come to terms with the fucked-upness of things.

Nice pics and interesting thoughts. I've been trying to maintain a positive attitude myself lately despite all the horrible things happening around us. But if things go wrong in your own life it's hard to see the positive side of anything.

PS. How do you like my penis art? You told me to get art back into my life so I did. ;-)

Jimmy - I think that we All should want more from oursleves (yeah, but more, some, anything, from a Woman would be nice too! haha!)

Nothingman - You said it man. It is fucked up. But trying to come to terms is what is important, no?

Helena - Your penis art, it is very penis-y! haha (it is well done! I am kidding with ya!)

Sleepy - I am glad you liked it!

A - ahh! You rock. I usually mispell 'typo'...

Its hard to look for silver linings when the clouds are too polluted to get near enough to dig.
