A blip in happiness, addiction, My Voice

When The Addiction is Heaviest

At times when the addiction is heaviest upon me,

And my tired nerves cry out in many-tongued pain

Because the flow of love is choked far below the deep recesses of my heart,

I seek with cravings firm and hard

The strength to break the dam

That I may live again in love’s warm stream.

Until, at last, I am restored and made anew! Or, so it seems.

When I am closer drawn to God’s great Light

And in its radiance stand revealed,

The meaning of my need informs my mind.

“More love,” I cry; as if love could be weighed, measured, bundled, tied.

As if with perfect wisdom I could say — to one, a little love; to another, added portion;

And on and on until all debts were paid

With no one left behind.

But now I see the tragic blunder of my cry.

Not for more love I hungry cravings seek!

But more power to love.

To put behind the tender feelings, the understanding heart,

The boundless reaches of the One’s Care

Makes love eternal, always kindled, always new.

This becomes the eager meaning of my aching heart

The bitter cry–the anguish call!!

About Reputationist

When I started this blog in 2007 the following is what I was up to - things have changed - some. I'm what my handle states - an Oldude. The problem with this acknowledgment is my thinking and ambitions have not quite got the message of my "oldness". I've started an online Coaching practice and my rant is about how to improve long term happiness - For the World. My thing, I believe I can change the world - isn't that a hoot. The way I intend to change the world is to foster a wider and deeper appreciation for "mindfulness": The daring, flair and grace of Jayz; the political savvy of Cornel West; the creativity of Mos Def with the business and cultural daring of Richard Simmons. I've thought enough - being a philosopher of sorts - and trained hard with some of the sharpest minds ever on the planet - Cornel West and Michel Foucault to know the total absurdity of trying to change the world - but I do and I will. There it is showing my age again.
