heating up the inward intensity




my spirit is still strong
but the intensity i feel 
about certain injustices 
are taking a toll on my mental and physical well being

once again i set out to reconnect
with my self; grounding again with nature
with music and art, poetry
universal love

i slip into the rut of despair at times
i find myself feeling worthless
while doing the worthwhile
i am willing

willingly
i will move forward
i am not giving up
the strength is there

the world feels like the square
 i am the round peg not fitting
this is not a new awareness
it is just more intense

a coworker recently said
"you care too much"
that may be so
i care

energy has been
outward
and moving
outward for some time

it's time for
retreat
for inward
reflection

like great music
timeless
art too
is a retreat



almost a year ago
i thought i was
beginning a
new chapter

now
without
respite
i see

again
i
will
begin





sometimes old songs have new meanings... 

and this newer song, when you listen, in a more general way, not one love relationship, but 
when you listen to the song with the "whole" of looking back in your life and 
also looking ahead at where you may be traveling.... where i am traveling...
