Words are hard to find you see, so not many comments from me.

A tornado of thoughts though, and a way I fly.

There must be a reason, at least I believe so.

A hand holds us down bringing us to our knees.

Be still and sit in the corner to think of our deeds.

No this isn’t a sin so don’t go there.

An awaking I guess is better to say.

The time is now and you have no choice.

You’ve fallen before. You know this course.

Except this time it’s with everyone else too.

So big it’s hard to comprehend.

All thrown up with one big change.

Together we hunker all on one side like never before.

So we sit.

And we fret.

And make silly comments as we shake from within.

Hoping it will be over soon, so we can go back to before.

But right now there is not a way.

Exhausted enough enough my untamed mind.

I surrender and eventually you too.

We connect to our god, spirit, or guides or just call it the love from inside.

Love holds us tight and we let out a big sigh.

In this space we were meant to be.

To learn is only yet to see.

I’m not sure how we couldn’t..oh how I pray.

Before is no more and that’s more than okay.

So we are paused for another day.

No door to step through just yet.

So not many comments from me, words are hard to find you see.

Surrounding us All with Peace and Love,

  7. I loved this…. and I always love your comments. Mine however are often badly bumbling… but still I keep on fumbling. You’re one of the most beautiful people on WP, shining in your sobriety. You set a good example for me, and many others here too, we’d all agree. I adored your “rock n rolla,” and your rockin’ poetry. Shine on, dear Dwight. 💛✨🤩✌️❤️🌿

  10. Beautiful writing. I wonder if it will go back to how it was before? Who knows. But one thing I am confident about is that we will get through this as a community.

    1. Indeed. I hope it doesn’t necessarily go back to the way it was before. I can’t express it completely but something was missing prior as we ran on the treadmill only looking down. Now, we’ve been forced to stop, look up and around, and question many things we swallowed.
