  • POEM: Do We All Have Such Thoughts? by (brief renderings) Joe Fazio (2/12/2010 10:20:00 AM)

    Hi, I'll number my answers in the order you present your questions (1 is your first stanza,2 is your second etc.)

    1. I used to but ever since I discovered reincarnation was more than a myth I didn't dwell on it as much.

    2. I admit this thought never came to me. I usually like to be a nameless presence in nature, I'd rather nature doesn't see me and just keeps existing as if I'm not there.

    3.The past is over and I have made many mistakes. Fortunately I don't have to repeat them in the present.

    4.Hell yeah, but nowadays I already know they are heard by the inner voice of reason. He answers them too, very quickly. Not with words though, more with intuitive thoughts.

    5. For me yes they have made a difference. For the world at large, definitely not, I'm nobody and don't make any contributions to american society beyond drawing a salary and spending my money on consumer goods.

    6. See answer number 4.

    7. It's hard to fully love someone and not cloak them in your secret fears. I haven't mastered that yet but at least I know the difference between the genuine altruism and the facade of love while secretly seeking ego validation and attention. That took a lot of work though.

    8. I was lucky that I didn't screw it up too bad so that the love of my life would leave me. I got close though, on several occasions.

    9. Life doesn't offer that many choices really. You do what's best for yourself and those around you. Or you don't. I gave up on a dream job a long time ago or any kind of success in the world I don't have. It's bullshit compared to her love and I'll never abandon that for a million dllars. A billion....? nah. mo money mo problems.

    10. Dr. Manhattan can answer that one for me. 'Only what can happen does happen' (Watchmen the movie, the scene where he's on Mars with Laurie) .

    This was fun. Thanks for posting.

    Truly the darkness cannot hide when you shine the light in. what got me in the end was how creepy the dark really is. I never thought I could have these thoughts until I knew where they truly came from. you sound like you have a similar grasp on the absolute truth. I learned it in a book called A Course in Miracles. Like you said, baby steps, gradual awakening back to reality. Light shines away the dark. Great poem.

  • POEM: Run Away by Rebecca Walters (1/30/2010 12:51:00 PM)

    If hell is other people, it's nice to imagine a fantasy where you can be alone with nature. Nature doesn't judge you, doesn't ask you to pay your bills, doesn't make you work for a living and support a middle class existence. Nature doesn't really notice you which is why it's so inviting. This is very beautifully worded. My only problem with the desert island fantasy....hell is other people, but hell is also being alone. That's why it's just a fantasy I guess. Anyways thanks for sharing your sentiments.
