Cry of the Restless Youth

 

“But you, children of space, you restless in rest, you shall not be trapped nor tamed.”
― Kahlil Gibran

 

Let’s move
Let’s Go
Invoke the Spirits
Use the force
We’ll invent the purpose
we just need to…
we just have to move
Pursued from the inside out
we roam free
as we run to stay free
Avoiding traps
including of the self…
we chase our tales
and we tell our tails
to stay behind
Chaos is our natural state
yet we resist even that
We are the wild ones
we are the young
and we will prevail
as long as we keep moving
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Restlessness and Recycled Art

 

“Dreams and restless thoughts came flowing to him from the river, from the twinkling stars at night, from the sun’s melting rays. Dreams and a restlessness of the soul came to him.”
― Hermann Hesse

 

Restless visions
of places only imagined
take me away
from the meaningless drama around me.
So much matter and so little matters
yet others seem to live for drama
I live for explorations
trying to scrape meaning
from the pieces scattered across
lines a thousand miles across.
Is there meaning in your body next to mine
or in the stars
or in the places you dare not go?
Words seem to echo
drops in the silence well
yet my restless soul moves on,
— G A Rosenberg

Blessings, G

Power and Responsibility (A consciousness stream)

 

“You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

 

What have you tamed? Have you tamed your restless spirit and let it find a home? Have you tamed your mind ever exploding in a million directions with ideas that seem either equally good or preposterous depending on your mood? Have you tamed another and made them a pet? Who so takes responsibility for another rather than teaching them to be responsible for themselves?
I tamed my wandering nature…and taught it to stay still.
I tamed my despair…allowing it to leave as it came and myself to know it did not have to tray.
I tamed my anger…learning how to express it.
so many parts still run wild within me. For I am not ready to take responsibility for them.
My inertia I blame on distractions.
My envy I blame on the accomplishment of others.
my lack of focus i blame on so much being so interesting.
One day I will take ownership and even that ownership I will tame.
I know that true power comes from responsibility and is a byproduct thereof
I just have to allow myself that power..
Blessings, G
