Impressions while driving then doing dishes

Posted on: December 28, 2016

 

87.
How’d I get so fat?
Do I really eat that much?
Now, I am hungry.

86.
I said prayers
So often
Out of desperation
They became mantras
Hoping thought would
Bend God’s will to intervene

Standing at the sink
My mind wandered
Bemoaning those mantras
Futile
Maybe God was irritated by
My squawking

Maybe I’m the narcissist
Thinking my thoughts have value

But what is gained by not trying?
Not trying is active failure

Maybe this outcome is God’s answer
Maybe, in Her infinite wisdom
She created this as a necessary step

Like a set of plastic bricks
But with no picture on the box
We complete requirements
This one, unpleasant
But essential to all its posterity

I don’t know

Destiny doesn’t dole out answers
Neither does it allow retrofitting
Take what you have and build on it
If it is to be, it’s up to me
Answer your own damn prayers
Just do it
Make it so
If you don’t
Someone else will

85.
Hey! Back off my car

Ding, dong, tailgating nim rod
Lives are on the line
