Again I find so many things weighing on my mind. I also find it so hard to express myself with the words that I have always found to comfort me, the words when written seemed to make the thoughts clearer, more solid and real.

I used to be able to write with emotion, so much emotion others could feel the sorrow and pain the joy and the tenderness that was my heart, but now I feel as though the words are dead, as maybe my spirit is as well, and with that realization, maybe it is possible to know that I am no more than a machine that only goes through the motions of movement through the hours of my life

within the brightest moment of sunlight
passages of sorrow and delight

and the future is behind the now

hmmmm

something to ponder
