Day 186: Please Retire the Phrase “You’re Coming Out” – Groundhog Season is Over an it’s Independence Day


image

Sometimes, I feel like the message, “You’re coming out” should be retired under Juneteenth.

In Texas, we celebrate a holiday of being made aware even as we sat in chains we had been pronounced free almost two years prior.

Really, it’s like being imprisoned, watching the guard unlock the cell doors, announce your freedom, hand you – your release papers, and you turning over and going back to sleep.

In life, we are already out, but it’s easier to complain than to be held accountable for producing. I cannot be called out of a prison that no longer exists, unless I lock the cell door on myself. And, that’s not captivity. That’s self-imprisonment.

Day 185: The Offering


image

I did not learn, because I took the offered advice.
Sure, I listened.
I might have even been seen taking a few notes.
Yet, the learning came from living and not just listening.

Day 184: Precious Moments


image

I did not pick the planters pot.
I did not pick the seeds.
I did not determine the soil.
I did not lay the seeds in the chosen soil.
Nor did I pack the soil upon the freshly laid seeds.
I was not there for the germination stage.
I did not witness the first leaves grow.
At the time, I did not even know.
I was a little more than a small shrub back then.

The seeds became buds.
The buds fought to become flower,
Under all the April showers.
The flowers became fruit from the original root.
I felt like pollen with each passing bloom.
Or maybe the bee seen darting through the room.

I will never be the original potter.
I will never be able to recall the plants first blooms.
Yet, I do know how the plant became a tree.
I did witness the fallen leaves.
I did witness the painful struggles as one limb became two.
I did enjoy the transformation.

And, one day the trees’ seeds will create more plants with hopes of becoming bigger trees.

It is my experience with the circle of life.
Oh, what a wonderful life.

Day 183: Distinguished Mirage: Cause & Effect

The true liar convinces self – the lie is real.
The lie becomes so real it covers the truth.
Breathing fire does not make you a firefighter.
Do not spew venom and call it a cure.
Venom is poisonous and can lead to an infection.
The antidote cures the infected.
Know the difference.
Then live it differently.
And, your life will be different.
