Our Nation's Rock Bottom

Our Nation's Rock Bottom

There comes a point in a person’s life where things must change.
They have hurt themselves, and others.
They have lost everything they had.
They have even lost their way.
It’s a point,
 where the failures and the terrible things of their past rise up to haunt them.
They must change or perish.

Because of what they have allowed to happen,
 they find themselves in ...

Outside of Herself

"Find yourself"

You can misplace your mind

But

You can't forfeit your mind

When you've built a fort for your mind

Mine is bulletproof,

Double-glazed,

Soundproof,

In here

I can stay outside of myself

I can step outside of the world

Oops

Yesterday,

I watched us having a conversation

From my window panes

Through the heavy glaze

It made me feel some type...

The root of all suffering.

Being and non being.

Body constantly at odds with the mind.

Do i choose body or mind. 

A paradox, a kunundrum, enantiodromia.

Dysphoria is real.

How can I be so sick and at the same time be so well. 

Disease, a state of being at Ill ease with a state of being. 

The binary code runs deep. Greater than a social construct. 

Male to Female, Yin/ Ya...

Dumped on the street

At a glance a heap of rubbish

dumped in front of the house

detritus from indoors

strewn across the footpath

 

On closer look someone's life

their stuff moved out onto the street

destined for a refuse container

on grey, impersonal council land

 

A new owner with new stuff

will give the house new life

while the old life peters out

in socially isolated circumsta...

I just got finished reading a very depressing comments thread on Facebook..... So it's probably time to stop....

I chose to delete once before

But decided to try again

Social media seems so much more interesting

Than endless rounds of freecell

But between every post of a friend

Is a reminder of the world and how it ends

Of all the evil and rudeness and sin

Decadent glory of our own destruction

So I'm thinking of deleting again

Maybe

But of course I could just soldier on

La la...

It's just a light.

 

It’s just a light.

Or a the small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the human eye,

It’s speed through a vacuum 299,792,458 meters per second.

The only thing strong enough to stare you in the eye

And tell you what really matters.

It’s just a light,

It’s seen things you’ll never see,

Heard the screams you told yourself weren’t there,
