Dash

Rush and dash,

Huff and puff,

Don’t be late,

or you will regret

so many deadlines,

constantly running out of time,

Selling your soul,

Just to be rich

Chasing after a goal

that is always beyond reach.

So dash to your demise

The inevitable conclusion.

Hearrt-break Re-biirth

 

In a moment of weakness

I let my guard down

And she took advantage of me

Advantage of a past love

One with which I couldn’t cope.

For me it was a certainty

That there would be no forgiveness

That this fairy tale

Had an unlikely anti-climax

And yet you say

Despite my doubts,

Despite my mistakes,

Despite… yourself,

You still love me,

Does that mean,

I can dare to dream

I can dare to hope

That we may bury this hatchet

That our story

May still have

A happy ending?

Exposure

Sometimes information

is presented to us

in a way that changes

how we perceive ourselves, other people, events, the world.

in a way that roughs up

our mental faculties

and kicks our cognitive dissonance

in the ass.

Exposure is important,

for you must learn

a new way to think

before you can master,

a new way to be.

if you’re not going to change your mind,

why have one?

After all, a mind

stretched by a new idea

can never go back

to its original size,

like the the big bang,

to the universe.
