From where I stand

The chaotic yet beautiful endeavors of a freeing spirit

Month: May, 2014

Natural Retaliation


 

 

Fiddling

Where do I put my hands?

Chewing

Your lips are not your next meal

Sweating

Not like you’re running a marathon

Tapping

Morse code won’t help you here

Beating

Your heart thinks it’s in a rock band

Panting

Fear not, oxygen is plentiful

Falling

Your vision turns black


Waking

Your eyes try to shield the bright lights

Hearing

Subtle chatter clouds your thoughts

Speaking

Your mouth fails to form the words


Healing

The end of suffering approaches you

Seeing

You reach the opening of the dark tunnel

Asking

Your brain searches for questions

Believing

You think this may just be the end

Cleaning

Your slate is cleared to start afresh


Battling

You remember back to before it changed

Recounting

You tell the broken story unwillingly

Remembering

You look at the scars on your innocent body

Nauseating

You feel the cold night air on your bare skin

Stiffening

You fall rigidly to the unfavourable ground


Shocking

Ma’am, mind you explain what’s on your mind?

Traumatising

What is it that happened on that night?

Regressing

What would you say was your last memory?

Suppressing

Gone


Trick Question

What is lost can always be found

Wind

blows through your hair

Earth

gathers between your toes

Water

divides you and the horizon

Fire

burns in your soul.

Elements

blown by the

Wind

disturb the uncovered

Earth

once sheltered by the depths of the

 

Water

only just surviving the

Fire

You were in your

Element

singing with the

Wind

the only being on

Earth

praising the

Water

for extinguishing the

Fire

Dusting off the

Elements

that were covered in sand by the

Wind

you thank the gods that rule the

Earth

for bringing them back with the

Water

that started the

Fire

That had stolen your

Elements

 

 

Finders, Keepers?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Battle

While ~50’000 VCE students all learn from the same books and are tested on the same things to then be compared against every other student in the state, we must remember that some of us succeed in some areas and struggle in others and to accept that we’re all different and cope with things differently as we can never put ourselves in anyone else’s shoes, every individual experiences their schooling differently and we are not one to judge their achievements and their battles.

So next time YOU judge my battles and my achievements… Remember that.
