    the elephant in the room
    the one gripping your spirit
    responsible for your outburts
    your self-inflicted troubles
    your pain
    the one stoic in indifference
    and desperate in emotion
    and firm in anger
    rage
    and evil
    evil triangulation
    used to strangle the object of your affection
    cycling
    again
    and
    again
    and
    again
    it doesn't end
    won't end
    will
    not
    ever
    end
    eternal
    never tires
    It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~e.e. cummings

    " Blessed apollo."

    I erect this golden god in my back room...
    it doesn't anwser my prayers....
    but what am I supposed to do, when man tosses me with the odd and vagabonds?
    I cry like a mad man and shout at this golden god - why have you forsaken me!
    Why do you tie me up and throw me upon the cross or is suffering just my lot to bear?
    Heroism and virtue all seem lost.
    The sun's graze never seemed colder and a woman's words never seemed so rough....
    I lie in my bed, while my cancerous thoughts grow and reality dims...
    The room darkens and my prayers cease.

    As the fire dies down and the storm passes
    Help me to find the beauty in ashes
    I want to see my reflection in the broken glass
    In spite of my tears teach me to laugh
    Let me find hope in hopelessness
    Let me function in brokenness
    And may the obstacles I face teach me to be strong
    For life is a journey and the journey is long
    Let’s find inspiration in the sunrise.
    Let us relish in the hopes of a day that is new
    Each day brings the promise of meeting you
    May this thought be the reward for somber days past
    Let us hope that on this journey we cross paths.

    Soft strong hand
    Use fingertips
    Precision
    Small movements

    Warm quiet wind
    Roar

    Ground where I stand
    Connect me
    Direct line
    By bridge or by tunnel

    Love supreme
    Take care of me
    You know what I need
    I am thirsty

    Shrill icy gust
    Be silent
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Take a heap of child-like wonder
    That opens up our eyes
    To the unexpected gifts in life
    Each day a sweet surprise.

    Mix in fond appreciation
    For the people whom we know;
    Like festive Christmas candles,
    Each one has a special glow.

    Add some giggles and some laughter,
    A dash of Christmas food,
    (Amazing how a piece of pie
    Improves our attitude!)

    Stir it all with human kindness;
    Wrap it up in love and peace,
    Decorate with optimism, and
    joy will never cease.

    If we use this healthy recipe,
    We know we will remember
    To be in the Christmas spirit,
    Even when it's not December.

    Mindless cacophony awaits me outside
    There's nowhere that I can curl up and hide
    SHUT THE FUCK UP LEAVE ME ALONE I'M TIRED
    I've locked myself up to get rewired

    Loving Father,

    Help us to remember the birth of Jesus
    that we may share in the song of the angels,
    the gladness of the shepherds,
    and the worship of the wise men.

    Close the door of hate and
    open the door of love all over the world.
    Let kindness come with every gift and
    good desires with every greeting.

    Deliver us from evil by the blessing
    which Christ brings, and teach us to
    be merry with clear hearts.

    May the Christmas morning make us happy
    to be Thy children, and the Christmas evening
    bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts,
    forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake.
    Amen.

    By Robert Louis Stevenson
    American Author

    Poem About All That God Does

    Because you picked me up when I struggled to get through.
    Because you healed my heart when it was thrown and shattered.
    Because you gave me hope when it seemed so out of reach.
    Because you showed me the light when there was only darkness.
    Because you reassured me when the doubts screamed in my head.
    Because you kept me going when there seemed nowhere to go.
    Because you sustained me with strength when weakness was all I knew.
    Because you gave me a purpose when life seemed so pointless.
    Because you restored my happiness when life snatched it away.
    Because you helped me let it all go when I gripped the tightest to hold on.
    Because you showed me the beauty of life when the world showed me nothing but hate and corruption.
    Because you gave me a better life when the old one fought to come back.
    Because only You could tear down my wall of pride, and instead build it back up with love and humbleness.
    Because of all this, I give you my life Lord.
    You were always there, even when I rejected You.
    Because of all You are, my life, oh God, is yours.

    This is my foot,
    It runs on the ground,
    It knows where it goes,
    It's knowledge is profound
    Wherever it be.
    there be me,
    Hopping or chopping,
    hopeful and free.
    And if you challenge,
    you're all out of luck,
    for my little foot,
    gives nary a *uck.
