When Curiosity Doesn't Kill You……YOU LEARN. More Than Just a Breathe of Fresh Air

I’ve Learned; Living With the Enemy

Not easily persuaded,

thought I’d give it a try.

When my world grew old

the new emerged,

not because I hadn’t looked before

but because I took notice more.

It was what I had asked for, can no longer ignore.

As my tolerance grew thin

it became a catalyst, and I won’t take anymore.

Sure, you seemed harmless

yet I knew right away

because I could hear every word

and feel everything,

although you didn’t know,

because it was always about you.

All who want a good listener or audience

yet fail to hear or see anyone else.

In the presence of others,

I could see some falling for it too.

It seemed like escaping from a spider web

but not wanting to kill the spider.

It’s like seeing the spider alluring its prey

but knowing it shouldn’t be stopped.

It’s like the spider who moves in great haste 

because you disturbed its web, its illusion.

Although it may bite, I won’t absorb its poison.  

Rejecting all that does harm to me.

Some choose to weave a web

with delicate precision;

as intricate as the lies they tell

for others to run into,

but not all are trapped

and not all can see the web they run into,

only the means to escape

as no plea for help will suffice.

Sometimes we fight our way out just in time

sometimes we get caught,

and sometimes we defeat the spider 

despite the fact it mistook us for prey.

We hold no resentment towards it,

no plans for revenge.

Instead, we choose to heal ourselves

while letting the spider go.

I know because I have tried

and always find out,

the inevitable can’t be prevented

and minds can’t be swayed,

one must already be aware of the truth

and believe in themselves enough

to see through the disguise.

Playing to the tune of my empathy

becomes the first mistake.

Then mistaking it for weakness

becomes the last misconception,

With understanding comes the realization

there is no real power through manipulation.

I thought you had the gift,

but only used it to cause harm

to all others for your hopeless gain,

but you weren’t aware

it was only harm to yourself….

Therein lies the irony,

for the selfish can’t even see it,

or the ones they are hurting.

Guess I had to live with the enemy
in order to understand it more.

To put into words…

And there I found the resolution to it all;

All those who have sought me out

for some selfish yet severely delusional

thought of taking advantage.

I’m prepared for the rumors, stories, and misunderstandings.

There’s always been someone like you,

I have let into my life, but not anymore.

Although I prevail you will stay the same,

and those thoughts you hold about me

will also stay the same because it’s too much

to come to terms with yourselves.

Go ahead and project onto me

blame me for your problems,

try to hurt me because you are hurting.

Although your delusions tell you it’s working,

doesn’t mean I believe you,

and I can’t say I didn’t try to help even after I warned you.

I’ve Learned Good vs. Evil

When I look into a person’s eyes, I see them staring straight through me and return I bare the depths of their soul. The exchange reflects experiences shared and experiences untold. I have ceased making contact at times, due to the overwhelming impact these encounters have laid unto me. I cannot fathom the possibility of a more profound exchange between two living beings. Some take it for granted. Some as a sign of strength. others as a sign of weakness when you don’t look them in the eyes. But there is something more that only your soul can comprehend.

I’ve seen loss in such great detail that my heart explodes into a song of empathy. I’ve seen heart break through the eyes of us all. I’ve began to wonder if the whole world revolves around broken hearts? It must be why there are wars and chaos in the midst of such a beautiful world. Heart break can emerge from more than just an intense lover. It may exist in an idea as small as a betrayal from Santa Clause. I’ve seen eyes that hang on and grasp every last detail of a self-made tragedy in the attempt for revenge. I’ve seen eyes turn soulless in a short time. Heart break is not for the weak who grasp at its insignificant details but cannot grip the harsh realities.

Those who hold on and let it consume them will never have the chance for true redemption. Instead they exhibit pseudo emotions that resemble death which cling to life even after they are gone. It saddens me to have witnessed such things. But through it all I remain still and always hoping to someday live in a world that is aware of such truths. I hope to succeed in bringing that awareness to this breathing living notion. It is possible.

I have seen true dissonance that only emptiness can allure. All my life has been a reel of such images. They echo in the midst of my wondering mind. I will never be able to see the world the same after one has seen the hollow depths of these encounters. One must not make the mistake in thinking we are all the same. What happens when we become so naive and think we are all the same? We begin to believe that all of us are capable of the goodness when in a crueler sense there are some that just are not. What makes us all the same is the susceptibility to such acts that can lead us astray. and sometimes good people fall for lies, deceit, and manipulation that lead us astray. But perhaps, some of us are good and some of us are evil? Is it by a force greater than us or a product of conditioning? A sense of identity? Evil is fueled by pure choice to be so which is a more disturbing thought. All of these are possibilities, but it is a concept as old as time. Good vs. Evil.

Some let the heart break consume them to their very cores, their souls. Some take the heart break and make is something grand, as if naturally permitting the laws of metamorphosis, like me. And those who do live to tell about it, in a way that awakens each and every one of us to the possibility that we all have the vulnerability to be hurt so badly that even our own minds can be swayed into the direction of evil without our appropriate consent. To only see their hurt as the only reason to live. That mentality can eat away at their souls until nothing left. So it isn’t so much a question as to whether we all have souls, but rather what we do with our souls.  Those who warrant revenge in a manner that hurts everyone especially themselves and the innocent in the process. It only hurts themselves.

We never imagine the possibility that through their actions they are dwelling in the avenues to a point of no return. It is what you do with it that truly encompasses your purpose. Those who take it to the evil side should actually be weary of those who don’t. We who overcome with no intentions to hurt others like they have hurt us are who they should be fearful of. For they remain soulful in a soulless world. They remain diligent yet steady in these days to bring attention to those that remain in the dark because their is hope but not hope for evil. We are there reminding you. We don’t have to do much, in fact, just our presence infuriates the soulless. It reminds them of what they wish they could be. If we can firmly stay intact in our worlds with this possibility, then we have truly won the persistent battle of good vs. evil.
