To Strip Ourselves Of Our Burdens

Updated on May 18, 2014

We Need To

There is no easy way

As painful and troublesome it may be

The hurt, anger ,disgust

Only harm not help

We are deceived by our mixed emotions

The hiding, covering and ignoring

We have done long enough

It makes no sense

We know the truth will surface

If not now one day

Come clean

Forgive what we have done

Accepting to be brave

As if we were covered in the mightiest armor

Stand still

Listen to our inner thoughts

They may seem overwhelming at first

With time they shall guide us not disqualify us

For we have what it takes

As we join forces

Not two separate people fighting to be one

What we really are

Is one person connecting to everyone

      Gypsy Rose Lee For me it is work and then chores around the house and then add reading and any writing I can squeeze in. A constant battle of doing what is most important and letting the rest go. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and share.

      It's the Internet that has got me so boggled and confused. As I reach out to others they reach out to me and now we're such a large group that it's becoming hard to follow along. Ah, the modern world, isn't it wonderful?

      Kathryn Stratford I am glad I can stir up some creative energy. I have also been focused on other things lately. I miss so many hubbers who write their heart out every day. My writings our my spring board to my inner mind. Each time I write I reveal something new or another layer deep beyond what I can physically see. I never know if it will make any sense because it even makes me shake my head and wonder. Where did that come from ? What does that really mean ? My hubs are not like other hubbers who can give a great explanation on any given subject. I do more poems and unfinished thoughts, wishes and half dreams. It is what my mind thinks of at this very moment. I can't control it as much as I try. It is as wild as a cat that act irrational at times. Then it can be affectionate and loving seconds later. All I can do is find clues to what direction I am heading and see if I can learn more from my always changing new experiences. Thank you so much for reading my thoughts when you have a free moment. I am always thankful for my readers. I find great peace when I release each story or thought. Almost as if it was caged and now set free. I tend to go off the deep end and carry my thoughts farther than anyone I know. Many people think I ramble. In some strange way what I say makes sense in my mind and when I try to write it there are not always words to express what I feel. I am not sure that even makes sense. That is the best explanation I can give at this time. I love when people have a great time enjoying nature. You have me relaxing thinking of the birds you might see. It is late here and everyone is asleep. My mind is racing so I can write for hours without even blinking. Good morning and may your day be filled with excitement and new joys.

      Your posts always make me think. I really like the last three lines. There's nothing like being part of a team that works together as one. Beautiful!

      I haven't been on here much lately, but I wanted to drop by and read some of your work, so you don't think I have forgotten about you!

      I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Here in CT, it was pretty sunny, warm and breezy, and I visited my favorite park to relax and enjoy nature.

      ~ Kathryn
