of all the battles
that I have won
were the ones
I waged against
my own self

I agree, the worst demons we could ever face are the ones created by our own psyche. I’m not winning everyday but the fortresses that I managed to build over the years have been holding up well, vulnerable but able to keep most negative forces from busting into my head’s happy space.
at least my dear
you have won,
I have none,
and self keep,
raging, waging, engaging,
the soul keep reneging
all promises made
until lights fade,
eyes turn red,
heart becomes numb,
and the brain is dead,
and I am I, no more
I can see a light
at the end
and it is a beautiful
at heaven’s door
while a hell’s pariah,
will clean that floor
where your feet will touch,
it is not much,
however allows contentment,
that I knew someone,
many, not two or one,
battles, self rattles,
that it can smell,
sweet roses from
my panacea to eternal pain

Thank you for sharing that AB 🙂 Beautiful, as always! Thank you for stopping by, I hope and pray all is well on your end 🙂
Hi Himani, so good to have you back! Apologies there are too many random words in my scribble – while yours, as always, are in perfect sync with the milky-way. I hope that you keep coming back to this forgotten corner of the universe and allowing us to enjoy your presence and company.
Thank you AB 🙂 Have a bit of break so thought will share some thoughts till I can. And you are way too generous, you words are lovely as always! Sending my good wishes 🙂
I hope ’till I can’ is just poetic and not reality!
I wish on a falling meteor,
that a crater created lasting forever,
a beautiful soul reside amidst,
her unnerving words, failing to resist,
temptation to taste, in unwarranted haste,
those words and lips which speak the same,
the girl of the east, made western dame,
honey dripping tongue, bee in the name,
May fate makes reality the dream,
and I, poor I, see you beam, joyous scream,
flying in the wind, leaving all behind,
heaven on earth, infinity crater I find,
lady slumbers with fairies who sing,
words she speaks, and wishes she brings
to life, forever, until the day
when God ordains, curtain drops,
foolish humanity had its last hop
We are our own worst enemy!
and our own best friend! 🙂
If we fight that battle instead of running away from it?
if we come to terms with that truth, perhaps we can help our own selves and then benefit others 🙂
That’s really beautiful.
Thank you so much 🙂

And in hindsight, what a beautiful journey. Blessings to you also Himani ❤
I hear this.
I’m trying not to have those inner battles, but bring everyone into the game together. 🙂
Accepting and then overcoming them is a part of evolving into our higher selves, Brad 🙂 Now all I ever try is not to get in my own way. Thank you for visiting, wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead 🌟
Great way to describe it Himani. May we allow our highest good.
Yes, indeed 😊🙏🏼
