Some thoughts…!

English: Robert Plutchik's Wheel of Emotions

English: Robert Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

God loves people, he really wants us to love and forgive each other. Forgiveness though, is truly the work of God I tell you. After living for some time, your experiences will be many and varied.I wanted to touch on human emotions briefly .We have to be honest with each other, if we want to see change in society and in our own lives. Some people are quarrelsome.Whether its through demonic interference, or their own personality or a bit of both, it can be scary experience to witness.The sad part though, is that, the individuals who are under this bondage, believe something is wrong with everyone else. I have seen the extreme in human relationships,from one end of the spectrum to the next.Some individuals can be intense. I personally think we all have the capacity to be intense. Some people allow situations to take them to the next level. Anger can transform a human being into something, that is almost unrecognizable. I’m talking about the kind of anger where a persons actual physical face can transform into something else, when they’re having an argument. Very scary…!

I’ve also experienced love, you know someone can love you today and be your enemy tomorrow. Some of us have experienced love and then intense hatred from the men who’ve been our partners. Afterwards,you are left shaking your head,crying and trying to find out the reason why. Somethings we won’t understand, period. Humans are complex beings,I think many of us get bogged down trying to always fix family, fix our friends and others. The saying goes “you can bring a horse to the water,but you can’t force it to drink.” I believe you can love people from afar. Sometimes people are not ready or willing to receive your love, let them go. Some of us need to move on from family and friends.You will give your life trying to fix people, who are selfish and don’t care about you, ultimately.They are killing you with their indifference, for some of you, until you let them go, you won’t go to the next level in your life. I don’t know to whom, I’m speaking today. I’ve been there, loving, giving, trying to understand, praying in the trenches. Moving on doesn’t mean that you don’t care, it means you need to live, to breathe and to be free of their tyranny.It doesn’t mean you’re bitter, though they will say that. In fact your life will improve…dramatically.Turn the situation over to God and leave it with him.Let him work on your heart, learn to forgive and leave the rest alone. No human being can fix another.People have to desire change, its a process that starts from the inside, deep on the heart level.

Darby, sitting in the shade of some green vines.

While drinking Mulberry wine, 

Seedpods of Coral bead vine, or Gidee-Gidee

Strums his guitar.

If only Geraldine’s daughter

A damsel much sought after

Would walk by, he’d show her

Affection so divine.

He plays a song, singing a bit louder as he starts a tune,

Waxing eloquently, about her fair beauty.

She makes his blood roar like thunder

But the girl doesn’t share his fervor.

She hopes instead for , Prince Charming much older.

Ignoring him as she strolls in youthful splendor.

Proudly glowing, and full to bursting with honeyed praise.

Her indifference rankles, the doting dreamer.

Though his previous attempts at romance ended in disaster

For Darby, hope floats optimistic, bringing him closer to the object of his desire.

Meadow

In the early evening

When the work on the farm is done

And the sun is setting

Johnny comes a calling

We oft walk alongside the meadow.

In the still of the dusk

Beautiful flowers, their many colors

Spread out, resplendent like a patchwork quilt

Seem other worldly/luminous in the fading daylight

There’s a sudden movement in the low bushes and my little mutt

Rufus scampers to investigate.

It’s probably a wild rabbit

I purse my lips in remembered delight

Gone were the days when Pa would come through the door whistling

A tasty little morsel slung over his shoulder.

In the lengthening shadows

I drift closer to Johnny

His hard arms surround me/comforting and  full of  strength

A cow moos in the distance as we round a bend

We wave to farmer Ben

He grunts without looking up

His attention focused on his unruly hogs

On a quiet grassy knoll we sit and stare in wonder

As the sun dips low/biding the day goodbye.

 In the summer/the family comes to the water

The sound of wood splitting in the morning air draws her.

Her husband muscles flex under his worn t-shirt/ making her heart flutter in remembered ecstasy.

The window pane/transparent only moments ago

Is now cloudy/it had beckoned to Katya /so enticingly.

Mustering all her reserves of strength/ she had navigated the stairs before finally settling in her motorized wheel chair.

Now the chair is stuck/the wheels refusing to budge

She could do no more

Arms flailing/ she attacks the portion of glass directly in front of her face

If only Tom would turn around

He is bent /intent on clearing away

The debris of the huge tree/ that had fallen onto their property over the winter.

Katya bemoans her condition

And resigns herself to fate

For wait she must and be patient.

Change happens

Everything experiences change,even money goes through changes.

change_thoughts

Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing” by Brian L.Weiss.


Ever notice,that some individuals are stuck on an old perception of who you are.While family is mostly guilty in this regard, friends and associates often times miss the evolved and improved you.When repeated attempts to persuade them fall on death ears,you move on.Be blessed today!

She gathers the pieces of a discarded letter

Crushing them in her small hands

An almost burnt-down lit candle on a candle ho...

Up since midnight/

A coherent sentence – evades her

She wants to end it.

Yesterday in the dell/ she happened upon them

Drawn by the sweet tinkling laughter of a woman/in love

It was their own secret place/no one else should have been there

How could he?

Two timing/Matthew Horner

She looks at his photograph hanging in the corner.

He has broken her heart

After promising that they would never part

She has loved and lost

Broken emotions/ and shattered trust

And the tears boil over

Here in her room she mourns

For that which she thought she had.
