duality

the observer does nothing

the doer destroys oneself

both strong and weak

one and the same

my conflict

this war never ends

my opponent never changes

the artillery never changes

i fight alone

this is a battle for control

a moment

a feeling

a size

a life

it is a means to an end

with

no

end

nothing

distortion

distortion is all i have ever known.

it is

the vision i see

when i look at me.

it is

molded by the words of others

and

a perception of what they feel a person should be.

it is

molded by those around me

whose lies i trusted

and

believed.

it is

molded by a society and its media

whose ideals are fueled

by power,

fairy tales,

money

and

greed.

most of all,

it is me.

empowered

by my psyche whose distorted vision

is impervious to all.

holds me prisoner

and

forbids me

to

be

free

healing

*

*

scars are so exhausting –

always present

– some big, some small –

constant reminders

of stupidity,

ignorance,

the how’s and why’s

and

the pain they have inflicted

but

most exhausting of all

is

the process of acceptance,

forgiveness,

letting go…

healing.

the looking glass

truth or distortion?

what is it you see?

is it a contrived perception

or

the person you believe yourself to be?

a mirror can be a friend –

revealing beauty

inside or out.

it can also be a fraud –

killing life’s dreams

and

fueling one’s doubts.

there is always too much –

never any less.

nothing ever seems right,

though we desperately try our best.

the eyes only see

what they alone can see

and

the mind stands behind

to confirm what it all means.

some people find contentment –

they are happy just to be

and

there are those

who struggle daily

never

liking

what they see.
