by bly wallentine

i feel often that i am alone, and i cannot tell if i am okay with it, it often makes me feel like a flightless bird, a wave in an ocean, empty of everything but itself, and i know that i can love it all but sometimes it is frightening to be the only thing washed up on a shore of endless sand perhaps this is the source of the sorrow and the mother of the fear and i have been at many points abandoned by myself, though i could not see what i was doing it is all a body of fear, the ship sailing through a worrying storm, but it is not wet here, nor is there structure or form i think back to the abandonment — it is all a realization of conditional love. which is not truly love but a mirror, a projection of doubt and self loathing and uncertainty: what is this creature i inhabit? but i have learned (though i often forget myself) that while i do not always understand my pain i can accept it with grace, and extend that acceptance to myself while i seek to understand my pain and all of the rest. of me. i am acceptable, every molecule, as is everything outside of me, which is also a part of me, a single outstretched thread of silk, which extends on forever, held by the loving fingers. of an eternal god
i knew what i thought i did but i learned better there is love in all of us even though it can be hard to find in the darkness a light shines on those who see and who are ready to be blessed with understanding of the eternal truth of god which i call self or mind, reason or ?, time, matter, mind, body, psychic oscillations ten thousand manifestations
