Addiction..or Inspiration?

I'd choose the latter of the two, but my mother would more than likely beg to differ.

Anyways, I purchased 12 new albums via iTunes within the past two weeks.

I know, i know, its a bit ridiculous...but all that great music..and let me tell you it was GREATT inspired me to write this new poem

its called Things Better Left A Mystery.

Life is a constant struggle.

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in guilt.

That we seek.

Seek
Seek
And
Seek
Some
More.

We seek our whole life.

For
Nothing.

We fight. 

Fight for life.

For love.

For sanity.

For nothing.

Its part of life.

We try

And try

And try.

But 

Deep

Down

We knew it was
H
O
P
E
L
E
S
S.

All along.

We put on these fake faces of enjoyment and for what?

A few years of happiness?

The person on the outside would say

Life is so worth it.

(or some sappy crap about life lessons.)

Throughout life people make up this bullshit that we are supposed to learn eighty billion life lessons. None of these have any true relevance. At the end of the day, all the lessons we need can be summed up into 3 life lessons.

1. Learn to live.

Right off the bat. We try to make life into this big complicated jumble of mess.

I believe the true reason behind wanting to complexify life is to have something to bitch about.

If we learn how to live, life is easy. Things work out.

We just need the simplicity in life.

2. Learn to accept.

We always have this mental image of what we want to morph into and be. We want more.

Power.

Wealth.

Everything.

We never just want the person we are.

We are made the way we're supposed to be made.

When we learn to accept ourselves

The person inside

Can shine through 

And make number 3 so much easier.

3. Learn to love.

Not 

Lust.

Not

Greed.

Not

Selfishness.

Pure
Genuine
Love.

We have to love others. Show them we care.

Show them the true feelings

Inside.

We have to love those we love.

And those we hate.

Loving those we hate makes life all the more bright.

All the more enjoyable.

We have to love everyone.

But the hardest part of lesson number 3 is learning to love us.

Learn to love the person inside.

The one hiding under your skin.

Learn to live,

Learn to accept,

And 

Learn to love.

The rest is a detail of this grand place.

What's meant to be will find a way.

And that's it.

Anything which hinders any of these three,

Is a waste of time.

Shine,

Flourish,

And above all,

Even in the darkest of times,

Love.


The person outside would say

There's so much left in life to explore.

But in all reality,

The true person inside.

Is dying to scream out.

To break out.

To yell to the world.

The truth.

The day bears fa├žades to the maximum...

But at night, the beasts inside come out to play.
