What is ailing you, for you to read
Something in a negative internal tone?
When it could be you taking it wrong.
What is ailing us all to misinterpret
Others, inciting anger and offense?
What is the baggage claiming all you see,
All you hear, all you are choosing to feel?
What wounds are activated, having you in constant
Flight or fight mode?
What ails us silently within,
Whether we suppress or express it?
What lives beneath your crossness,
And reactive responses?
As you so quickly judge
And want to argue, wrecking havoc internal narrative,
Can we please stop projecting it?
Can we stop dumping it on others?
Can we stop taking things out of context,
So we have ammunition for war against each other?
Could we observe ourselves,
And how we are contributing to our way of sensing?
How we are contributing to the war on ourselves
In conflict with others?
Could we just pause,
Think about what happened in the past to us,
being triggered now?
Instead of shaming, blaming and slandering
Others who have offended us,
Bullying them to make them feel small,
Like it was when it happened to us…
Being spiteful because of haters,
Only creates more anguish and hatred.
We don’t win with hate, anger, and fighting.
What is ailing us, needs healed,
Forgiven, let go, because it allows
History to repeat itself,
In a perpetual cycle
Where nothing gets resolved,
More hurt feelings,
More pissed off people,
More of what no one wants,
Needs or desires.
No moving forward,
Just stuck in a loop enabling
The same narrative
To drive your life,
Like nascar in loops…
What ails us, if we let it, drives us,
May we get wiser,
May we get kinder,
May we love more,
May we forgive,
Let things be,
And break the cycle,
So we can all grow forward..
I believe whatever is ailing us,
Facing it, working through it,

In all world full of misinformation,
Perhaps that contributes to what
Is ailing us in a constant war
