Is this you as well? Vol 2

“Stop signs for me are a kind of hectic, achey, ‘tired & wired’ feeling. When I push myself I sometimes feel the energy leaking away like sand sliding faster through an hour glass, or a the air from a punctured tire. That’s when the Shoulds start: “I should have the energy to do this, I should meet my commitments, I should know better than to overcommit”. , I’m learning to respond with, “hang on, I SHOULD respect my natural limits, even when chasing my dreams, & other people should respect the boundary of my health & wellbeing”.

there’s more 👀👀

we’re here

who is we?

I’m still trying to find my way

still?

I thought I had it but shit happened

you still stepping right?

I’m over 40 and not the greatest

well shit, not many are. What else?

I want to know love

ok, do you love yourself?

sometimes

and?

There’s work to do I know

I’m here and I’m never leaving

no question mark needed.

Carousel

lights up

showtime

get in line

greatest show on earth

watch the birth

of the mood, of the moment

don’t mind the lights

it’s the story they tell

I know it well

you me together again

1 year on, 1 year off

it’s time for my heart to go soft

last time I come around

you want to know what I’ve found?

Peace

why

we take pills to heal

we breath to stay alive

we fuck to make babies

or make love, same diff

we stay in relationships

we are inauthentic to be liked

we know wrong but do it anyway

see the title of this poem.
