an ethereal higher calling to do right
alas I’m in this body where my spirit is too like siblings
we have a tenuous peace but oftentimes the battle is on
be craving bad things that look so delicious
mind scrambled into thinking yes and no-at the same time!
confused-I know what is good because rationalization is part of me
why do some people’s words make me irritable?
a desire to dominate and control
but I know it really isn’t me-or is it?
seems like the conflict is constant-moments of clarity infused with chaos over the edge or going?
wondering if others go through this Twisted Duality
opposites yet joined unnaturally
searching for ways to handle this
seamlessly a madness I call my life control, control could be secretly concealing a “Hulk” personality
hidden rage brought to the surface when dealing gets too difficult
need to be looking for self…to conquer my center can, will, must get there
a guitar solo is blasting in my head
chaotic rhythm starting to feel weird……
