It is more easy to be wise for others than for ourselves. ~François Duc de La Rochefoucauld



dialogue of peace

its been a long time since I talked to me
cuz I mostly ignore what I say
I rather drift than think
it's sooo much better that way

i know everything I'd probably say
never bother with my own advice
i know me better than anyone
it's like I knew me twice

i've seen my face in the mirror
i know whats under that skin
curiosity never killed this cat
nine lives through thick and thin

its been a long time since i talked to me
and the quiet's been such a release
sometimes it's better not to think
it's the dialogue of peace

Peace engaged with peace - what a blissful thought. One could hear the snow falling in such a contented state of being.
'I know me better than anyone'? Chance would be a fine thing in my case - my alter ego can be so cunningly deceitful, who can know it? Beats me:)

Thought provoking work,hen. Nay nay lass - soul searching work.

Gotta love it. This makes me wonder the more if, when people say, "You're not yourself...." well if we miss ourselves then too!

Love this.

I love this one Anita, it rings so true for all of us. There is in all of a us a private side that few people ever get a glimpse of and perhaps that is just as well...

Another great poem falls seemingly effortlessly from your pen, dear-- and with cadence to boot. I love what you write. And such good advice. I wish I'd just shut up already with the talking to myself. I'll have to keep this handy to tell myself about it-- Later! --Charlie

Awwww what a beautiful swan! Sometimes it is easier to offer advice to others, than to follow it ourselves, well pointed out...
