The end of hope


  I’m tired of believing.

Tired of wishing on stars.

Tired of dreaming the impossible dream.

Tired of waiting for answers.

Tired of hoping things will change.

Things won’t change.

But I can.

I can know instead of believe.

I can stop wishing and just enjoy the stars.

I can wake from impossible dreams and see what really is possible.

I can find out instead of waiting for answers from something else.

I can change instead of hoping my world will.

Belief is an excuse if there is no movement behind it.

Wishes need dedication to become reality.

Dreams can prevent you from seeing the beauty in each moment.

Waiting for answers is never as satisfying as discovering the truth.

Hoping things will change, can keep you from changing yourself.

Goodbye belief.

Goodbye wishes.

Goodbye dreams.

Goodbye waiting.

Goodbye hope.

Hello reality. Hello action. Hello me. Hello you?

Mindfulness


My legs spasm with pain.

I struggle to sleep.

I talk to my pain,

Like a mother to her child.

You are my body.

I hear your agony.

My heart fills with compassion.

My dear one, I am here for you.

You don’t have to scream.

I am here for you.

You are not my enemy.

I am here for you.

You need my attention.

I am here for you.

You are my pain.

I will heed your calls.

I will tend to you kindly.

You are a part of me,

As are my eyes, my lungs, my heart.

You are my precious pain

And I am here for you.
