Acceptance

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Aug 29, 2013

Straight from the heart

These words said

Somehow they

Appear to be dead

No longer holding

Meaning or worth

Who stole it

A drifting presence

Unknown...

You shall not possess

The unknown

A phantom illusion

Lost in the chaos

A ghost of untruth

No reality...

And so it goes

And so it was

Unwinding the creation

Facing the lose

Scattered beyond

All that was real...

Left on the pavement

Placed with a kiss

Abandoned dreams

Will... (more)

Them

By D. Sager, published on Jan 12, 2012

I will never be without them, they follow me everywhere, when I feel they have finally gone, with vengeance they find me again. Forcing themselves on me, insisting I acknowledge them. I can scarce resist their efforts, so enduring and persistent they have become. I give them place, being preeminent in my existence, being associated always with me, my companions, never to leave. I entertain them now, with some resistance. I allow them to have their way with me, to work me into submission. As I give way to them, I stand back, in my mind wondering, perhaps this the way I must go, to walk with... (more)

Change is Constant

By Pushhyarag2000, published on Dec 13, 2011

It is a few days short of three years when I wrote This New Year Will Be Special-For Me on having been selected by this Company that I have been working for till now. I’m reminded of it now for comparing as well as contrasting how things look now, when I am on the threshold of another major change in my career & life.

I was feeling quite excited then and was looking forward to the challenge, which is easily perceptible if you read the post. A few factors made me assess it as a favorable change: First, I had secured, what looked to me then, was a privileged offer of a new job with... (more)

The Music

By D. Sager, published on Dec 7, 2011

I turned the music on today.

I let the pain work its way out and through

my heart to my eyes,

welling up with watery release

I turned the music on today.

I let the tears come rolling on in and down

my face to my lips,

tasting my salty sorrow.

I turned the music on today.

I let myself go and felt all of it

rolling around and across

my life in this room.

I turned the music on today...

Delusions of Grandeur

By Shari G, published on Sep 28, 2011

I recently sat down with a friend whom I respect greatly, and as in a lot of conversations with my friends, it always leads to teasing me about my “sunshine and rainbows” attitude towards life. After he got the “jokes” out of the way, he mentioned to me how he respects what I post on Facebook , however, believes that I give people the wrong impression. He went on to say that he believes that by telling people to recognize their own greatness and perfection, that I am encouraging people to “be lazy” and to not do any self analysis or self-work. More specifically, “your posts reinforce lazy... (more)

Take What You Like, And Leave The Rest. Quietly, please.

By Libdrone, published on Sep 27, 2010

I have to confess that I am not a sports fan. While as a New Orleanian I have at times rooted and cheered for the Saints, I really just am not very interested in football, basketball, baseball, etc. There are people, I know, who don't enjoy reading. And honestly, I would have no more luck interesting those folks in my book reviews than any of even my friends would ever have in interesting me in the football game they watched on Sunday. And that is just fine, because people have different interests. Think how boring the world we all share would be if we each of us looked alike, thought... (more)
