Cutting Through Emotional Crap: a Poem

Updated on August 17, 2017

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

Have you ever wished for a magic word

that could remove every crappy feeling

just to see the wish as silly and absurd

again stuck between your walls and a low ceiling.

But then did you ever play the game of "what-if"

and just for a second you held that magic wand

with a vision of the possible no matter how brief

which made your wishing well grow into a pond.

And then you could have got that gutsy storm

permeating every atom of your entire being

cutting through every bad emotional form

with a force unknown and ruthlessly freeing.

This brings back to me those distant times

when the weight of life demanded an instant drop

not of something small, but whole inner paradigms

without praying and hoping for all that to stop.

Now, all of us are so much stronger than we think

and when soul announces that cutting through the crap

just ride on the tsunami's crest and watch not to sink

and you'll have your freedom dropped right on your lap.

      Very beautiful and inspiring poem. There is always a moment in your life when you feel an instant urge from inside. We need to hear to it and use that moment in bettering our lives. Always need to be hopeful and positive to grab those moments and mould them for your betterment.

      Shannon---You are doing the right thing: by accepting the crap you are consciously detaching yourself from it, not wallowing in it.

      Thank you for the praise.

      Ryan---We can always hope for the better, as long as we put ourselves into a frame of mind that matches that "better". In other words, it's about welcoming the new with the new mind, not running away from the old with an old mind.

      Thank you for your nice comment.

      Nice poem. Thought-provoking provoking. For me, sometimes trying to cut through the crap and then finally doing it means that I have to simultaneously accept the crap temporarily. Not sure if that makes sense or not to anyone but me at the moment.

      Sometimes I wish I did have a magic wand or a chance to have some wishes granted. Although I try not to live with regrets, I do wish some things would change. I am hoping for a change of the better soon. Great work on this poem.
