the Rage

5 11 2010

Our double-edged sword…
The root of our confidence…
The origin of our demise.

It exists because we renounce ourselves….
We reflect and despise something within –
Something we cannot face nor accept…
And thus we lash out…

Family.
Friends.
Loved ones.
Ourselves…
No one is safe when we cannot face
Our inner demons.

Left unattended it consumes
All within reach…

The fault it finds is not proof
To nurture our Rage…

No.

The proof it finds is that our Rage is
Justified.

Herein lies the danger…

For a fire that can find reason for its’ existence
Is a fire that shall
Consume us all.

To overcome…
We must be preventative…
To do so…
We must learn to be humble.

The sword that cuts both ways
Will destroy…
But also just as easily create
Opportunity for growth.

And though our faults can lead to our downfall…
They can also be the source from which we are able to
Become better





Karma

Is Karma transferable?

Can the good or bad of one transfer to those around them?

This question is haunting…

de Beauvoirian intersubjective morality…

If energy cannot be transferred nor destroyed…

…Then karma unredeemed is prone to change forms.

My life and wavering morality must have some blame in this…

Smoker of 18 years…

Yet it is a 26 year old non-smoker that gets throat cancer.

Is this the woe you wish to bestow on me?

My heart found contentment…

…Found an enduring partner…

And you wrench it away with a lump…

Is this my reminder to proceed with the plan?

Cruel as always I see that only more woe can befall me otherwise.

You have your wish…

…You know what I need…
