MIDNIGHT POETRY “Fooled Into Being Normal”

“FOOLED INTO BEING NORMAL”

Blind and mute
Before birth occurred
Hoaxed into living
Following suit

Coming out of darkness
Daylight rubs the eyes
Scream for the first breath
Better than staying dead

Murmur and sound
Chaos all around
Touch on the skin
To be bare now a sin

Time is of an essence
Soon adolescence
Knock on the door
Story for a new decor

Dress and heels
Case full of skills
Rising on a leader
Resting on a feather

Upon passing years
Lust and dreaded fears
Change is in the air
Going Vego to be fair

Life of pure love no more lust
Content before being dust
Priorities changing gear
Into the unknown bravely steer

Formless mind and fatty brain
Chemical imbalance holds the rein
Vivid images of unseen form
Sounds that disturb the norm

What really matters who really cares
What meaning do we give life and is it fair
In the meantime take another breath
And go to fetch your daily bread

CARRYING BABIES BY PROFESSION

Having been carrying infants for the length of my existence, I had the opportunity to experience lots of second hand emotions. There was joys, there were tears, there were upsets and clenched fists.

The most of my career I carried little Joe’s and Sandra’s until they were grown ups who left me as my shape and size where not fit for them anymore. I became used again by another newborn coming to earth and needing me to carry them around, until they fell asleep.

Now I am retired and my job with human off-springs have come to a close.
I found my second life mission helping an older lady. To carry her shopping bags.

I squeak with delight or perhaps with a little wear and tear as my used by date is near.

In the next lifetime, I plan on being a little different…

Instead of being a pram I would be happy as a golf buggy.

DOES BELIEVING OUR BELIEFS SERVE US?

There are beliefs that guide our day to day activities and then there are those that only surface here and there in conversation with other people.
What is of interest to me is just how much attachment we hold to our strong beliefs.

As one saying nicely puts it:  “Beliefs are just thoughts we have been thinking over and over”.
With that in mind, I want to share my own observations and beliefs about beliefs 😉

Being strong minded, respectively hold strong beliefs about certain things in life can cause friction with others, if they are not in the same frame of mind or if we don’t give in.

When we speak with others, we might share some observations, information or our personal opinions. And there lies the hidden obstacle. When our beliefs clash with the opposite sides of the perspective, we have a choice.

Do we pursue the path of being ‘right’ (in our own perspective) and having the upper hand about the topic of discussion, or do we melt into the path of least resistance and surrender our ego?

What do YOU most likely do in such a case?

I’m coming from a strong mind driven background. Still to this day I find myself often immersed into a conversation where I am opposing the view of the other person, no matter what the topic. Just to open up new perspectives, new pathways, open mind doors. To enrich and to see the brighter side of situations.

Yet, in the process of such conversation I find myself questioning my own intention. Sometimes the other side also has a very strong viewpoint about the topic at hand and we seem to get nowhere in that discussion.

Once I feel the egotistic need to explain further what I mean to say, or what I am trying to get across to the other side (of course for their own benefit lol) I catch myself and choose to either continue in the process or to withdraw from it and leave it without a resolved ending.

What is the purpose of beliefs anyway? Do they serve us in the name of peace and love? Or conflict and misunderstanding? Do they serve their true purpose? Or are they more hindering us than helping us?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Please share in the comments below this short article.

Closed mouth and open hearted.
