Can, but should?

Just because you can, it doesn’t mean you should

Yet if you do, then you do not regret

Accept the choice, embrace every aspect of it

Mull over it in those times you can, reflect and learn

Repeat the action or banish it from your soul

Which ever you choose, never regret

Then remember this, even if banished it will never be too far away to be called upon

This is truth, this is your nature,

This is you.

Cowards

Why is it there are so many cowards in this world?

I have come across too many for it to be a sheer coincidence, it must be me and my attitude that attracts them.

There is no honour in sticking a knife in a mans back but if that is your way then be sure to drive it in deep otherwise I will pull it out and deliver it back to you straight through your throat so you can see it was me.

 

 

Truth

To find that which can’t yet be found you must first be lost.

Nothing is discovered by knowing where you’re going, otherwise you wouldn’t be discovering anything new. You would merely be confirming that which you already knew to be true.

But when you find what wasn’t there you soon come to realise that it was there all along, you just didn’t know about it yet. So really there is nothing new to discover, instead there is only truth and honestly that’s all there ever is. You can believe what you like, but regardless of what it is the truth will always be the truth, no matter how much you might want to believe otherwise.

To find that which can’t yet be found you must first be lost, then you must accept you’ve always been lost. Trust me, that’s the truth.

My Favourite Emotion

There are a lot of emotions that one person can experience, but of them all I favour one without question.

Anger is by far my favourite emotion.

It’s raw essence speaks volumes about the bearer and their true feelings, nothing else will ever give you a more true sense of a person and what they think. Everything comes to the surface, and I mean literally everything.

Over the years I have had my fair share of altercations that have been fuelled by this emotion, each time I have learnt a great deal of things and never looked back on my decision once presented with that long awaited information. There has only been one time that a persons reaction cut me deeply, the rest merely highlighted what I already suspected.

It was one of my very first dealings with the emotion of anger that lead me to look in to its psychology and how it works, while I still have a lot to learn about it, one thing that is clear is that it’s the most honest emotion we possess.

Why regret what is said in anger? You’re only speaking the truth after all, and no matter how much you deny it it’s still the truth.

We are often wrong about a  great many things, mainly because we want to believe most of what we are told that is governed by one of our other emotions, this can leave you confused, at least with anger you know exactly where you stand. It cuts through all the bull shit, it tells you what you need to hear with no holds barred and that  is why it’s my favourite emotion.

I wonder what your favourite emotion is?

Will you share it with me…

Alone

Alone:

Why do I align with the solitude is a question harbouring in the mind of my inner circle, the answer is simple… It’s what I want. It’s my choice.

This choice, it will be met with anger because not everyone understands why a person would want to go it alone but eventually that will subside, eventually they will understand. My moods have become erratic, so erratic that I want to be alone because I will have no need to contain, restrain or control my emotions. I will be able to let the seamless transition happen without having to worry about who will be effected apart from myself.

My default has always been to retreat away from the crowds of people. There is very little I care about and I don’t want it caught in the black hole that is my thoughts, it’s not fair to lean on people when they don’t deserve the brunt of my moods. While it is true that they would be there for me, I can’t bring myself to rely on anyone else.

History has taught me one lesson repeatedly; Being alone is not a bad thing.

Burning the bridges that ascend the clouds to the peaks of friendship and love is not my intention but it will be taken in that regard, luckily I am a good climber. I will do what I need to do to get myself through this first, then I shall begin the climb.

What Lay Beneath.

Though I am not the strongest, fastest, smartest, most selfless or benevolent, I am honest to a fault and it causes me no end of troubles.

Honesty have never been the best policy. Who really wants the truth when it’s far easier to believe a convenient lie?

No one.

I was sat listening to a conversation today between two feminists. While both had fiery passion in their voices, the conversation was one of discrimination and prejudice, I fond the irony quite amusing.

It struck me that people want you to believe they’re as pure as freshly laid snow, but they forget that although the snow may portray a perfect image, it is what lies beneath that provides the substance and support of that image. Thus, the image can only be supported for so long before it melts away and we are able to see the truth.

Having an opinion is not wrong, nor is having a different opinion for that of your acquaintances, friends and even family. This is what gives us our individuality, our character, both good and bad. So why do so many try to hide what they are?

Fear is the only answer I can find, but perhaps I can’t see past the history of my life for anything else.

I believe we all live in fear to some form or lesser degree.

The fear of failure
The fear of achievement
The fear of persecution
The fear of loss
The fear of judgement
The fear of letting those in need down
The fear of not being what we pretend to be…

When the world around us is in flames and the black ash covers the ground for miles to see, this is when we will truly know what scares us. Will we fear the raging inferno and the life it will take from us, or do we fear surviving the blaze and having nothing to live for.

Death or Life.

Which will you fear?
