Maybe I Should Stop This

I am really, really stubborn. This is not good. :)

Maybe I Should Stop This

I said, give me signs.

You said you did, gave me sores
on my dreams of hope,
smallpox on my heart,
the grinding walk, stone on stone
and me between them,
lost and losing more.

You said suffering shows me
that I don't know shit,
that I don't think straight,
that I still persist, insist
that I have my way.

It's a joke, okay?
Sort of.


  1. I got to a point where I was grateful for my stubborn. I reckon it saved my life. After it tried to kill me......:)


  2. Stubborn, Determined, Persistent. Who can say?

    Sometimes we have to insist if we are not being heard.

    Just a thought.

  3. D) It's a joke; it makes me laugh, because it is so true, for me.

    ahhh, but i love asking for a signs, it is so addictive, because often the path suddenly opens up, the ground strewn with flowers, the light just right. But ofcourse when asking for a sign, i am in a place of perceived suffering, and maybe all i really have to do is realize i am exactly where i want to be, stand still for a moment; the path was always there, the flowers bright blue, and when i listen; the birds are singing just for you and me.

  4. Michelle I hope your son is being kind to you, treating you like a queen. Heh. Yes of course. It is written so many places that usually defects in our character are simply over- or under-doing what is a natural and appropriate human response. Instincts gone awry as it were. So indeed, appropriately sized and placed, they quite likely serve as lifesavers.

    And of course, Techno, I say the same to you, my friend.

    Jozien, I am very happy to have your words here. You are the Dutch Canadian girl here. It wouldn't be the same without you.
