         The Illusion of Meritocracy:

       When you've overpaid your dues,            
          but they  continue to coax you
                     to keep on paying.

She lost her voice.
But not in the way you'd expect.
There's no cough to be had,
Or shortness of breath.

Once again,
The sadness decided to set in.
This type of sadness is one
You'd read about in books.
You may try to comprehend it,
But the depth must be experienced.
But buyer, please beware,
This sadness isn't for the
         Faint
                   Of
                      Heart.

It is an unwelcome guest.
A persistent solicitor.
A volatile intruder.

The sadness didn't want her to
Betray its undesirable presence.
To acquiesce would be a relief,
But to acquiesce, in this case,
Is to surrender.

And the warrior in her would
Not allow for that.
She broke the chains that
Bound her ...

Even I cannot comprehend
The magnitude of love
I have for you.

                     But I promise you this:
                         I will spend the rest
                              Of my life trying.

  It's not that they didn't stand for
   anything, it's that they changed
      what they were standing for.

     Which means they never really

My darling, my bashert,

I can't form the words, 'I love you' and let them roll off my lips.

The word 'love' seems sullied now as I've betrayed those eight letters to the ears of another.

You are so much more than love. That word simply does not do you justice.

You are mo chuisle, mo chroí and I need you as I need the air I breathe.

More and more that vicious teacher, Experience, is schooling me:

1. Doing what's right will leave you feeling burned.

2. Caring sets you up for ridicule.

3. Kindness is met with cruelty.

4. Helping will be misrepresented.

This isn't curriculum I will strive to graduate with honours from. This isn't curriculum I will be implementing. You will see me limping from the beating I will take to resists these fallacies. But to concede is to surrender, and the warrior in me will not accept this regardless of the temptress masquerading as a steadfast confidant.

Experience may be my teacher, but Wisdom is my guide.

Why am I always being told. . .
               To man up,
               To buck up,
               To not let things get to me
               To not take things personally?

Why aren't others being told. . .
              Cruelty isn't what we were made for,
              Sensitivity isn't weakness,
              Being mean isn't necessary,
              Being malicious gets you no medal?

I found myself today, wanting to be more like the world instead of this person who aches over the loss of another. Why can't I be cold? Why can't I be heartless? Why can't I toughen up? Why do I always have to let things get to me?

And then I found myself wondering why I would want to be like this harsh,...

Do you ever find yourself missing someone so much it hurts, only to realize that you are missing the person you thought them to be?

It's a bitter consolation, if any at all.

You stumbled into my life when I was already picking up the pieces.
You swindled your way into my heart and had me believing I could lean on you.
I didn't need this for one second. I would have put the pieces back together on my own, like every other time.

              But this time, I cherished
              not having to do it alone.

        You were every dream incarnate,
     Yet you set the scene for pure carnage.

            You will never be a welcomed
            visitor in my fits of nostalgia.

You will be yet another reminder of when life tried to break me, and I rose above it all.
You will be yet another scar on this battle beaten heart, and this will serve as a reminde...

Words. . .

Yet, there are times that nothing hurts worse than things left unsaid.
Then there are things said when they shouldn't have been.
And then there are times when the silence in between the words is deafening.

Time will only temper the sting of certain words, but words leave scars.

Words...

I believe in taking care of people because it's what my heart calls me to do.

The beautiful, and most unintended reciprocity, is that these are the same people who will show up for you if you need it.  

These are your people.

Perhaps a personal renaissance is not so much about what you are exposed to in your physical environment, but more so about a proverbial diaspora within ourselves.
Perhaps it's a marrying of the two.
