in-spire-ation

in-spire-ation                                October 18, 2015
how do you repot a cactus? the questions i ask
after the fact.
the cactus is thriving in the new pot. but you,
you wither away with complaints
about not being handed the inspiration
you
think you deserve.
entitlement and arrogance
–           ooze across the internet
in every message you send
and i think about the faces
you wear everywhere
the masks you put on
and how
you claim such love
–             for solitude
because you need it for your connection
to god.
i want to scream
–                          you fool! you fool!
jesus is looking right at you
through the windows of his temples

–                      inspiration.
–                       in-spire-ation.
–                        breathe in. breath-e in. breath in.

god is in the little things
the least of these
arrogance and solitude
entitlement and pretense
are the work of satan

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2.5 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
