A "A Day In The Life..." Of A #LKST Poem In Motion--How I Play With My Stray Thoughts When I'm Not On My Blog--"Enjoying The Rain"--A Story Of A Hopeful Survivor

video
You'll see this Poem in it's original form here
On My Blog.....

BTW--The screen shots of my Poem--Were taken on my daughter's iPod--
This is where I've written all my Poetry here on the Blog
you sit in front of now.

More were written--'Long hand'--On a lined paper notebook
you buy for .99 Cents--At the beginning of every school yr.

I've done this in one notebook after another--
running out of ink
in pens you buy by the dozen for cheap.

I started this Blog 1 1/2 yrs ago--In April 2014. Mostly in a response
to knowing that if I didn't
share this inside me
I'd never be completely
at peace
with myself.

So--I've shared it world wide--
literally.
By my Stats--It seems the only land mass
I haven't been
is Iceland.

And all because I started writing when I was sick over 10 yrs ago.

But really
because I've never not written
in one form or another.

To share something that we are
that we become
to know that affects someone
the way it seems
to affect us...
That's amazing.

But for us
it's just
" A Day In The Life....".

THANKS EVERYONE

Permanent.

To be without change
without difference
constant
never ending.

I wrote this in Aug...
and so it goes 
that all things MUST change.
for it's the only constant
the only 
hope
the only piece 
of what we have 
to offer
that stays ever
true.

Us. 
We.
We are the constant
the edge the change
shall ride upon
the winds that rage 
& rip through us
that can never truly
diminish what we've 
become.

I sit here
a different person
for sure.
Weaker in many
respects.
And I proudly say
stronger in 
others.
And 
I even proudly tell you
that my weakness
my courage 
in it
is who I am
who I have become.

Because 
this fragile life 
around us
so delicately draped 
is an armor
a shield
a protective cover
of night
that 
not even the harshest
lights
can destroy.

It's a path
a walkway
a stone 
pebble covered
village 
country stroll.
A quiet stream
leading to the ever
bigger sea
one we will someday all 
be
together.

But for now
these Warriors
who walk beside me
who walk MY path now
who no longer 
simply walk behind
but
lead the way
they guide me
as I guide them.
They walk point
when I should have
done it for them
They clear the path ahead
&
give me the all clear
that its safe
that they have 
cleared the way.

These Warriors 
who walked in front 
for so long
who still take the lead
when they are called.
These 
newest ones
these Warriors
in the 
making
before my eyes
have become more than I ever dreamed.
They have morphed into
a graceful
powerful machine
capable
confident
sure
in part
I know
because of who
they've always
had to
be
long before
this particular
tour
began.

I know
this world
will now be
in good hands
because the fires
of hell can
forge a weapon
of steel
that can't
be bent
&
it can
destroy
what ever good
that was left.

But it's the Warriors
the ones that walk
through the flames
&
reach for you
THESE
are
My Heroes
Warriors
Of
Recovery.

Enjoying The Rain--How I Live Life As A Hopeful Survivor When I Am Off--&--On My Blog

As many know--I deal with a well organized storm of chaos many days--& Nights.
Many times here at 2-3 in the morning--Never quite making it to bed.

That is the Real Life me--A never stopping storm chaser--Always looking--Almost waiting--In hopes of another successful attempt to harness the wild that lives around me--Maybe knowing I may never really harness it inside.

And so--This is when you will see me, most nights--Or very early days--Depending on how you choose to calculate the value of day & star light.

In front of you--In my Virtual Life--Sorting through what's left of a tornado of who & what I am--What I've learned--Who I'm grateful to bring with me through one more storm.

My Offline Life has taken unexpected turns--Like a freaky CGI stunt--Cascading across the sky--The screen too dull to show you the colors that are really there--Seemingly painting the sky black.

But I sit here--The roads & paths uncertain--In many ways more than I imagined--In some a blessed silver lining in a sky I hardly recognize anymore--& This too gives me hope.

Because this is what you will see the most of here--Hope. Freedom from our own perceived losses. The balls to keep standing--Even when our bodies won't let us--& Our Souls have nearly given up--& Our minds so far gone we can't imagine a life any other way.

We--My Off Line world--The ones I live with--Live for--Live through--We are simply examples of that in it's purest form....That it's just plain old not giving up--This is the key--The one that open the doors to safety--As you run screaming from the howling winds of change--This really is all courage looks like--Simply not giving up.

So yes--You will see me in my Virtual Life with you--Basking in the blistering rain--Soaked in the life around me--Holding close to me who I really am--The skies roaring it's newest last warning--As I stand in it all--Face to the sky--& I tell you how beautiful it all is.

Because--For me--This is how I survive it--The floods--& The storms that rattle my rib cage--Excitement in my gut--Not fear--But simply the will to keep walking on--Because that's all this life we share really is--A downpour from above--Trying to learn to swim--& If we're lucky--We'll discover water wings to help us float until then.

So I figure if I'm going to get wet eventually anyway--I might as well enjoy the rain.
