What I’ve learned to be true.

Apathy and emotional overreaction are different sides of the same coin. Just like laughter and tears are both expressions of a release happening in the body, apathy and emotional overreaction are both expressions of the same egotistic tendency of the mind to be in control.

Run away from the past, and you’ll become disconnected. Run towards the future, and you’ll become too emotional. The only way to free ourselves is to let go, observe, and stop running away and towards experiences which never really happened, and never really will. The only true experience that we will ever have is happening right now. Now it’s gone. Wait, now it’s here again. Can you feel it?

Onion Pain, How I Keep Myself Sane

I’m afraid this pain will reach my core,
dragging me down towards the floor.

I just want it to go away,
But it insists we have to play.

I shake its hand, look at it straight in the eye.
It gets embarrassed and waves me goodbye.

I will always shine light on your shadow.
I will never allow you to settle.

Surrounding my surface,
Looking for a way to get in.

Infecting my layers,
Penetrating my skin.

I’m aware of it now,
That’s how it begins.

I laugh and I’m proud,
Outside my onion rings.

Should I try to dodge it? No.
I fight it once more.

Pain is not for pussy’s,
It’s hard cold war.
