Dropping The Gun

By GhettoZombie / Category Spiritual

The war within my being

Ceases the firing of odious axons

A treaty is forged

Between my elements

Whether they be of nature or soul

Each island is now liberated

Free from self-imposed obstacles

Exonerated from the execution

Of permanent punshment

Pantomimed by grief and doubt



Farewell I say

To the backfiring of barrels

Binding bullets to brains

Brandishing powders that inebriate

And incapacitate

inhibition and intelligence



Good riddance to all the sadness

To the need for continuums of validation

Welcome the true love within

And the challenges that come with

All the while abandoning

Self-doubt and angst



No longer shall I venture

Vehemently towards violence

Against myself

Tongue tamed and tempered

Thoughts domesticated

Petting the true nature

I aim to find within God's light and creation



Memorizing the memos manifested by me

Betting that my luck will change at the rate of my evolution

Haywire no longer identifies my temperament



Alas

I knew my mask well

But now the eyes must peek through the lens

Of a realistic outlook

Doubling the insight and outsight

As the aperture clicks once more

Leaving a lasting image

Highly defining reality

In the here and now

I felt the hope spring forth as I listened to this..

I read this book once called 'the power of now' by Elkhart Tolle, well it was a good book and I understood some of what he was saying, but I kinda got lost half way thru and lost interest. I've been meaning to read it again because I believe too many ppl either do live in the past or in the future, it really has a distraction on your life, you're not really in reality if you don't live in the now, you know? Well, I guess what I'm saying is you can't change the past, you can dwell on it, but at the end of the day all you can accomplish from that is being miserable ... I've gone off on a tangent .. forgive me ..

I'm really enjoying your spoken word poetry :D
