Nothing Left

Nothing Left

A Poem by KWP
"

Im exploring my current bad attitude

"

as life dissolves, 

slips away 

normality is the intruder

questions arise 

of come what may, and 

you are left opened mouthed, 

with no answer


‘this too shall pass’ 

the wise ones say 


but this hellish plateau is lingering 


questions arise 

come? what? may?


trajectories keep on changing


human spirit has let me down

passion kicked to the side

why are we here, if not to truly live?

an essence commoners deplore 


extremities are shelter for those who truly feel


harshness ripping cold mountain winds

ferocity of the fall

you must, you must get back up 


mind broken by commonplace

a trick to deceive even the strongest of us

hearts broken by life


can we mend when the mender has too succumbed?

When we fall into darkness, dead-end. Hard to see the exit to hope.
"can we mend when the mender has too succumbed? "
I have asked the above question often. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

Methinks we are totally shagged if we start looking to deeply into life, and you brighter folk even more so. I decided long ago when I survived an accident that should have killed me that whatever happens will, and if I ain't causing the problems I sure ain't gonna worry to much about them.
Hope you are well m'dear, good to see your attractive mug smiling at me this wet, miserable Sunday morning :))

There is only so much any person can take and I think after 15 months of the pandemic, we have been pushed over the edge. I am hanging on by a thread. Thing is, there is still hope. Really. I saw a beautiful rainbow two nights ago and it inspired me. Life is still good. Lydi**

I think the key to keep in mind is that normality is not really a thing. Even the standard is weird depending upon your view. Space is expanding into something. What that something is could be... anything. How you take it is how it takes you.

Don't lose hope. Only you can really let you down. True strength comes only from the inside, everything else is just s**t you deal with. The secret is not easily shared, perhaps even, not something that can be shared.

Concious life is weird. Perhaps even a mistake.

Ha! That’s amusing.

hope is lost if " .... the mender has too succumbed" ... i use to crash myself upon the mountain .. craggy rocks and all ... scratching and climbing and bruising all the way .. and all the way down when inevitably I failed ... until i stopped ... quieted all the noise and heard God whispering .. "Turn around Gene. I'VE been looking and waiting for YOU! I am the Mountain no climbing needed" ;)

yes, i think i am in that "bad attitude" state, and don't want to drive back over the border.
Life keeps throwing punches and after awhile we become fighters who just accept them and wait to drop.
