“Don\’t bend; don\’t water it down; don\’t try to make it logical; don\’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”

This is a dedication piece to the millions of individuals impacted by mental health issues.  I know the dark can be infinitely consuming, but there is always the opportunity for illumination and resilience. ❤

what does it say 
    when your self conscious 
        in constant attempt 
           to dialogue with the quiet
              space in your spirit
                   ensconced with the verity   
                         of knowledge 
                   attempts to affirm 
               a life once devoured 
          with sardonic marrow 
       affords itself the opportunity 
   for true mirth — darkness 
impacts everyone consistently 
  on a profound level 

      allow me a moment 
    to play the devil\’s advocate 
 apparently my mind is hardwired 
in that capacity — as a million and one 
  scenarios flash through my cortex  
          simultaneously — 
         
          picture this if you will 
             an infinite number of televisions 
                 tablets, or phones 
                  
                all lined up in a row 
             and potentially stacked 
         with either different videos 
      or static images — each one 
   a unique resolution — possibilities 
exist for everyone — life is not simple 
  there are many complexities we as humans 
     must allow each other to feel and embrace 
        whatever emotions are required 
            in order to move through the trauma
                
                       take back your power 
                  acknowledge the sorrow 
              and tell it to burn inside of soleil\’s 
           radiant scorched orange creamsicle  
        and yellow illumination
