Difficult Tasks

Moses said to the people:
“If only you would heed the voice of the LORD, your God,
and keep his commandments and statutes
that are written in this book of the law,
when you return to the LORD, your God,
with all your heart and all your soul.

“For this command that I enjoin on you today
is not too mysterious and remote for you.
It is not up in the sky, that you should say,
‘Who will go up in the sky to get it for us
and tell us of it, that we may carry it out?’
Nor is it across the sea, that you should say,
‘Who will cross the sea to get it for us
and tell us of it, that we may carry it out?’
No, it is something very near to you,
already in your mouths and in your hearts;
you have only to carry it out.” Dt 30:10-14

Kind of like a meteor shower, just a constant barrage of information hitting and bouncing around like a bubble in my brain. It is strange, but all my years of consciences memory, all floating around and running laps in my grey matter. Continue reading “Slow Me Down, a depression story”

Down and Out

I am sitting here this morning, inside my tiny grey cube, and pondering all the things that I have seen this week. It is almost overwhelming to think about every single thing. All the joy, happiness, sadness, fear, hatred, and everything in between, it is almost causing me to go into a panic. Continue reading “Down and Out”

My Mind

Here is another one that was sent to me. I wrote this one back in 1999 as well. It is fun to look at some of the things that I wrote back then, and see the progression that my writing has taken (or not). It is another poem, and it is still sort of true to this day. Continue reading “My Mind”
