in moments i know all of you. forever.
when i said,
“i couldn’t do the things i do if i weren’t me;
i’ve made my own accommodations, thank you, now please let me be.”
do not, repeat, do not
engage the subject as a normal.
does. not. comply.
(did you really think
understand the language?)
i believed in you
(for a time)
then one day
(yes, i know;
that’s why i walked away.
i will not play the role of victim
it’s my play. yeah.
it’s a one-shot deal, doing a day,
so i walked away
to hear my say
tell me there’s no death dance, fine;
that doesn’t mean i lied.
The other night I watched the Amazon Series, Transparent. As I watched, I thought about the phrase, “living a leading edge life.” And I laughed in an achy kind of way as one of the characters pointed out that once you leave the illusion others need to see, they leave you. And, it’s true. But that’s okay, too. Maybe they return… maybe they don’t. Either way, it doesn’t matter because the life you inhabit is in motion…
and that’s the point. Stay with the forwardness of life. It’s where today’s answers flourish.
