Broken in a Mosaic Cut-Up Kind Of Way

 

“Stop trying to ‘fix’ yourself; you’re NOT broken! You are perfectly imperfect and powerful beyond measure.”
― Steve Maraboli,

 

I stand, a broken man
well perhaps not broken
but composited
by wounds from the past
unexplained events that made no sense
abstract dreams with no grounds
painful conversations
and disjointed memories that could not resolve themselves.
Still I am complete in my being and becoming
Seek not to make sense
I’ve earned my confusion
my defusion and my delusion
There is no need to put me right
wrong or out of your sight
I am perfect in my shattered becoming
as you are in yours
I just allow the chaos to show
and the reality around me to bend.
— G A Rosenberg

Surrendering Boredom

 

“As for the journey of life; at some point you will realize that YOU are the driver and you will drive!”
― Steve Maraboli

 

Accountability is a double-edged sword. If I realize that it is up to me to be interested, invested and entertained and not the universe than I have to either surrender boredom or admit to boring myself. Of course the alternative may end up being things like spending time stuck in traffic imagining the Barry Manilow songbook as performed by William Shatner or time in a bank line up identifying which animals each person I looked at reminded me of the most. I have spent more time doing activities like those than I might care to admit but then I don’t have much problem keeping myself entertained. I also have learned its possible to see almost anything as meditation. Boredom isn’t the only thing that I had to give up tho. If entertainment is up to me and not the universe than I have surrendered the right to ever complain about having a bad time. Because what would I complain about? As I said a double-edged sword indeed. I don’t think I’d have it any other way.
Blessings, G
