Tantrum





Just scribbling....my innerself is having a temper tantrum today.




I want it all.


I am not spoiled, nor have been


I just want the moon and the sky


The apple pie and the ice cream


I want the happy


The joy


The life I want


The moments that take my breath away


I feel like I could just grab it


but Im out of arms reach


I don’t want to choose


Poverty or exhaustion


Hot or cold


Up or down




I want it all


all of it



But along for the ride


comes


the good


and the bad


Damn.

I know the feeling; I really do. But I'm glad to report that the full spectrum of my "wants" is beginning to funnel down to fewer and fewer, and that feels good.

Yes, I feel the very same way, too.

Stare deep into the shadows as they evaporate with the in-between light;
it moves ever so slow; receding, abating, waning,
resignation of darkness, a must;
gives way to a simple release of resplendent warmth.
