Untitled Poetry Time

Untitled Poetry Time

(I don’t usually write poetry. Finals week and to much Carl Jung does odd things to a person’s psyche).

Tear from me this thing that grows in the center of my soul,
Because it was never you that resided in that place, but a piece of destruction.
And I’d rather a bit of nothing take up that space, then the illusion I’ve cultivated into you.

The They all say, in the end, Me will grow into that place,
The They all say, in the end, it will stop crying out in despair
And The They may be right, but until then it will still be filled with nothing….A place filled with nothing.

But I’d rather a bit of nothing take up that space, then the illusion I’ve cultivated… that’s you.

A Different Approach to the Unapproachable

A Different Approach to the Unapproachable

Quote of the week: “As a doctor he is not required to have a finished outlook on life, and his professional conscience does not demand it of him. But what will he do when he sees only too clearly why his patient is ill; when he sees that he has no love, but only sexuality; no faith, because he is afraid to grope in the dark; no hope, because he is disillusioned by the world and by life; and no understanding, because he has failed to read the meaning of his own existence?”

Question of the week: “They” say when seeking validation, one must fill the void in the pit of your stomach with validation from “oneself.” But what if it is not a hole or a pit, at all, but more like a weed that has planted itself there and thrives on unhealthy validation? What if, what is necessary is to pluck this poisonous weed, in order to make room to plant the seeds of self-validation in it’s place?
How do we weed our weeds?

Question of the month:
Has anyone accomplished this fully?
