Titles are overrated

Titles are overrated

A Poem by Sara

What am I?
I can tell you what I'm not.

I'm not pretty (enough),
I'm not smart (enough),
I'm not talented (enough),
I'm not brave (enough),
I'm not normal (enough),
I'm not special (enough),
I'm not good (enough),
I'm not bad (enough).
but I'm also not a junkyard for psychological waste.

What's the best feeling in the world?
Nothing.
The best feeling is when I don't have feelings.
When I stop with the emotional labelling.
You know, when expectations and dissappointments aren't more than nouns.
When I'm able to erase the (enough)s and I'm left with mere facts.
Facts are harmless.
When I can guarantee you not one bit of myself is tied up in your acceptance.

I always wanted to destroy the system.
I never thought I'd start within myself.

Farewell limbic system.

V3 L1 & 2 ..fantastic after the outpouring of angst and frustrations .. at least that's what I feel in reading .. the blessed "no mind" states that meditative practices aims for .. ahhhhhhhhhhhh .. how does one eliminate "nothing" ;)))))))))))))))))))))) best be careful carving up the limbic .. its said to hold our memories as well ... after paying all the dues to reach a state of peace within ones self .. would hat to have to relearn it all over again ... your title ... pulled me in to read this one .. i have a hard time putting my poems to title some times .. the thirst for no feelings is actually pretty emotive .. ironic eh!? and as there is sarcastic humor in those closing lines .. makes me chuckle at me own foibles in the "search" .. ;)
