…THE FOREST FOR THE TREES

treetop

What is a person to do when strength fails?

What is a person to do when rampant emotion cannot be reigned?

What is a person to do when the world they love, the only world they know, begins to fall apart?

Love grows.

Love evolves.

Love matures.

Why am I the only one that understands this?

Why am I the only one that chooses to fight rather than flee?

Why am I the only one that seems to value the investments made on both sides?

They give me advice.

They offer me support.

They can’t truly understand.

Don’t sweat it, ignore the bitch.

Don’t fret the future, there is life after her.

Don’t waste another tear on her, it’s time to work on you.

How am I supposed to move forward when I can’t see past my own pain?

How am I supposed to recover from this when I am subject to her presence every day?

How am I supposed to work on myself when all my time and energy is spent thinking about her?

I have never hurt like this.

I have never felt so utterly alone.

I have never suffered so deep a wound.

When will this pain go away?

When will the loneliness abate?

When will the deep healing begin?

PRAYER FOR THE WOUNDED WARRIOR

Wounded WarriorPrayer for the Wounded Warrior.

If there is a god, if there are any great spirits behind the creation of this universe and the guiding of fate, I need you now more than ever…

…for I am broken and weary of the wars that rage in my heart and soul.

I pray for the strength to forge ahead, for the vision to recognize my own worth, and for the victory of peace and happiness all men deserve.

Amen.

A QUATRAIN FOR SHINOBI

Skulking under midnight skies,

Behind black folds, Shinobi spies.

Every shred of knowledge taken,

Lives once guarded, now are shaken.
