Downright weird

Weird…

Downright weird.

That’s me.

 

Chaotic but tranquil.

Sane but insane.

Empty but full.

My mind is all of it.

 

Just too weird…

 

Storms rage in a clear sky.

Flowers bloom against the bright white of snow.

Birds swim, fish fly.

Possibilities are limitless.

 

I walk windswept fields,

Swim in clear pools,

Admire majestic mountains;

Without even leaving my own home.

 

Thoughts flicker and scurry,

Some half-finished threads

Weaving worlds of their own.

Just need a little prodding, that’s all.

 

Words flow from my fingers,

Taking those threads,

Weaving,

Stitching,

Creating…

Ah, but others could find such joy!

 

My emotions are a wreck.

I’m happier than words can say,

Then gloomier than the heart can tell.

On the mountain peak one moment,

Bottom of the barrel the next.

 

My mind is seriously out of whack.

Maybe I need more sleep…

 

No structure,

No plans,

No… Firmness, I suppose…

It’s all wild.

 

I gibber of things people don’t understand,

Whisper what others scoff at,

Restrain what threatens to break free.

 

I am chaotic.

I am insane.

I am unstructured.

 

And it’s all that’s keeping me from losing my mind.

Truth or Dare

Is it possible to be too honest, or is honesty always the best policy?

In our current society where falsehood and hypocrisy are highly rewarded, it seems there is no room anymore for honesty. You pay greatly for being straight-forward and honest. People don’t want to hear the truth (even though they say they do) they want to hear what they want to hear and they expect you to say it. Everyone I know play a role and wear a mask. Not me. Ellen (DeGeneres)  once said and I quote: Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness and compassion. Treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. Golden rule and honesty. The best combo for me.
