The War Within

Postby Ierrellus » Tue May 19, 2015 1:44 pm

God is a joker;
I am His joke.
Excuse me while I take
Another toke.

Arms that reach
Across a breach,
Never connecting--
Bodies that long
For a better song,
Never resurrecting;
And dare I say,
Who stoops to pray,
It has to be good sometime;
There has to be rhythm
Along with rhyme.
But, I'm out of time.
Glazed look in gelled eyes,
No surprise.
I dare not hope;
I cannot cope
With war within.
Why call it sin?

God is a joker;
I am His joke.
Excuse me while I take
Another smoke.
"We must love one another or die." W.H.Auden
I admit I'm an asshole. Now, can we get back to the conversation?

Me, too. Whatever happens will happen. I cope with toxic crutches, which can be seen as not coping at all.

Good question. We seem to need a reason to laugh. I can only answer it with an insane chuckle.

Thanks, F. C. It was written during my throes of major depression. I do believe in God, but question my sanity. I only hope my negativity is not contagious. Sometimes, in pain, one has to fight back.

Love and grief--
Both start as some belief.
So does some maker know
We were created so?

Revolting against what or whom?
Constant gloom?
Too early tomb?
Too little room?
Some heavenly womb?
Too little love?
All the above.
I'm reminded of Wm. Blake's "Book of Thel" in which a spirit about to be born looks down on Earth and sees nothing but suffering and mutual devouring. She chooses not to be born. I see the same, but had no such choice.

If you had the choice not to be born, would you have taken it?

no matter what, creator should grant good comfort for my loved ones.

creator should prove its worth of existence by serving me.

I look into the mirror.
My reflection claims it
Is not reflection, but is
Objective in my subjectivity.
This is not a poem;
It is a reflection.
I was created to think
In conundrums.

If,
you were created to think of that
and you did.

if,
you you were created to think of that in that way
and you did.

how can that be called as thought of thinking.
how come subject be termed as thought.

container was stuffed to contain that.
and it did.

there don't seem to exist a talent nor thought.
talent of container !!
purpose of container !!!

and enough ,
if you went and said : LIFE OF A CONTAINER!!
it lives it's existence and moves on !!!

If--"life's a bitch;
And then you die"--
If no one knows
The reason why--
Give me a hit
Of that good feel good.
Perhaps you could.
I do not understand
If all is planned
How I would--
How I should--
Give me a hint
Of that good feel good.
Perhaps you could.

Not meant to be funny. Serious business expressed in doggerel. As for provision-- I live in virtual poverty, as Blake did.

Me too. I try to make sense of it all as if it were a machine generating greater wisdom via conflict/duality. I think fate is involved because things go wrong beyond my own causes and the strings of occurrences do not display pure randomness.
