My Scattered Thoughts ii

i experience daily growth, daily change
some addition, some subtraction,
some division of spirit, multiplication of all my selves
some positive, some otherwise
(negative is a harsh word but is there any harm in admitting it?)
but it keeps me going...this change, this growth
what i was, i am not, somebody said,
what i am, i shall not be
but one regret will be there,
i shall lose the essential Me, i love the most, yet i'm not a narcissist
the world is a great teacher,
though the world is a bad teacher...

    I think, a body can die. How a wish can die! Wish relates with life.
    It is a game play. Actually we are not game makers.

    shahzia,
    i shall lose the essential Me, i love the most, yet i'm not a narcissist
    the world is a great teacher,
    though the world is a bad teacher...

    why is the subject of Life compulsory?

    MY THOUGHTS ON THE ABOVE:
    i wonder what you mean by the essential Me, I love the most. why will you lose it? ? ? and might not a NEW essential Me be as good or better?

    i like:
    the world is a great teacher,
    though the world is a bad teacher...

    in my opinion the subject of life is NOT compulsory for an adult who has the ability to end it....(don't mention the D word! ! !) . of course there can be lots of pressure from religious beliefs and family and laws and rules etc. to keep one living when living is unpleasant. and if one is feeling life is not worth continuing, i would suggest some counseling before the final decision is made. IT IS FINAL i believe! it is also a good suggestion to sleep on it and not make the dicision while intoxicated. thanks for sharing. bri :)

    Valerie Dohren wrote in her comment: Life is a constant challenge, a road with many diversions, some leading to a positive outcome, others more negative - a leaning process, at the end of which...... who knows? ! !
    i think she meant to write learning, not leaning. BUT leaning is appropriate here as well. we all lean on other people or things (including thoughts) from birth to death. it is good to have something to lean on sometimes, AND to offer others a chance to lean on us sometimes. thanks for sharing, Shahzia and Valerie and the others who commented and ph. :)

    Life is our greatest experience - in every way. A gorgeous poem.

    You are right, we are growing every second. And the world is a bad teacher if you look at this way. Always good to look at everything, let it be good or bad, that what did we learn from it. Then you will see, that life is what you expect of it. The best is not to follow those who you do not approve. Believe that everything works for your good, and it will.

    Yes, Shahzia, for most of us, life is compulsory; also, always compelling.
    Good or bad, life appears to be the only real teacher.
    Outstanding work!

    Very interesting scattered thoughts, thought many of us are thinking.

  • Valsa George (4/13/2013 2:05:00 AM)

    Whether we like it or not, life teaches us many lessons and often we have to change against our will! ! We continue to grow through addition, multipliction and even substraction! This is a great write, so enjoyable! For this you deserve a 10

  • Jen Walls (4/12/2013 5:52:00 AM)

    Beautiful in so many ways...especially in the coming to terms with life's deep soul and its growth and education. Love this write very much Shahzia!

  • Valerie Dohren (3/7/2013 4:00:00 PM)

    Life is a constant challenge, a road with many diversions, some leading to a positive outcome, others more negative - a leaning process, at the end of which...... who knows? ! !
