The Change Wave

 

“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.”
— Anaïs Nin

 

Riding the Change Wave
until I settle down
knowing that the next thing
won’t be the last I’ve found
content to know
that none of this will last
this is but a moment
and its heading for the past
the people you know
become those you’ve known
and the town never stays the same
Your hair will be different
your identity fades
you might not even keep your name
Riding the Change wave
it will come round again
nothing’s too stable
we lose a few and then we win
but I do know that that’s how
I choose to live
changing from day to day
giving what I have to give

Questing Within

 

“What each must seek in his life never was on land or sea. It is something out of his own unique potentiality for experience, something that never has been and never could have been experienced by anyone else.”
-Joseph Campbell

 

Surrender to the search within
even as it takes you to places
you never thought existed
as facets reveal
untold treasures
and sometimes horrors
and then there are those sides
that partake of both
Never be afraid of
the shadowed aspects
for in those shadows
the light shines brightly
and it is the darkest flame
that illuminates most.
— G A Rosenberg

Within the Self’s Scars

 

““I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.”
— Jack Kerouac

 

Within this self’s scars
dwells an elemental expression
leading you down
the signs are the usual
“Abandon all ….”
but what I really need to leave behind
is my bullshit
the fears that keep me above the surface
rather than pulling me down down
the only way out is in
individuate understanding
of an acausal pathway
empathic teargas floating on surface wings
pulling me up into a fear thought abandoned
tho my will keeps me heading down
down towards the centre
down towards apotheosis
away from being
into the void within
— G A Rosenberg

Paindrops

 

“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 

Hurt me a little
Rain on me paindrops
that won’t melt
under morning’s light
The tears streaming down
for I exposed my soft areas
open to your wit’s knife
and I say “again”
Make me bleed my weakness
Let me love my strength
through its absence
the teardrop of blood
slides softly down my face
leaving a trail
as another gathers in my eye
causing a scattered prism
A painbow in my eyes.
— G A Rosenberg

Chronos Steals

 

“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.”
— John Burroughs

 

The clock on second hand wings
soars away with me running after
in frustrated yearning
seeking that extra hour
for laughter with a friend
or tears with another
or a few more moments to read
or make love
or just fuck
Even a song would be nice
yet Chronos steals our moments
and we must make do with what’s left.
Still so much better than
not having a clue
of what to do.
— G A Rosenberg
