Assertiveness

warm-bodies_381711b

I often find myself cognitively dissonant. It is so hard to consolidate my ABCs when I’m all by myself listening to these intrusive thoughts. The courage in my heart is not enough to undermine my mind when there is no human solicitude.

But as long as I can live, I will exist.
As long as I can remember, I will keep it.
For as long as I can bare with it, I will be patient.

So let them detest!
For someday they will see
this man they put to test
has made what he could be.

He has perished.
And he will rise from death,
death where every dead took strength.

Let There Be Peace

peace-of-mind1

I.
I believed in the sweetness of a lover’s stringence.
When this is voiced in the hope of invigorating the soul before the dicerned uncertainty
and interpreted as invalid conclusion,
Let there be peace.

II.
The flood shall be shallow,
the fire shall stop kindling,
the wind shall be soft,
and the earth shall be unruffled.
Let there be peace.

III.
Learn to position your thoughts and feelings.
In the heart, in the mind, in the soul,
Let there be peace.

IV.
All that I’m wishing for shall meet the sky to unfold.
But grant me peace, for my heart is throbbing with pain,
my mind is embraced with uncertainty
and my soul is crying.

…Let there be peace oh Lord.
