• carl commented on the post, sleeve 7 years, 6 months ago

    The sleeve on top of his arm was a bandage for all the pain and anguish he had to suffer through. The ray of light that shone behind him was all that had left him with jitters and twitters. The sleeve was a mask, a bandanna and a culprit of societal ostracization. Yet we cannot […]

  • carl commented on the post, deserve 7 years, 6 months ago

    I deserve nothing. I am entitled to naught.

    I will earn it all.

  • carl commented on the post, anywhere 7 years, 6 months ago

    Anywhere I want to go I can. Anywhere where there is bountiful opportunities of success and elevation I can go. Anywhere, anywhen and anywho. All are within my sphere of control. I have no fear of the failure of my actions because I have already embraced the beauty of their intent. Let the consequences take […]

    I had an epiphany today — I am close to who I want to be. There’s still much to improve, but I can see the progress quite clearly.

    I am excited for the future.

    The shepherd leads his flocks towards the water. To drink. To partake in the living of life. To go somewhere where none had previously gone. The shepherd is the guiding light of the flock.

  • carl commented on the post, automatic 7 years, 7 months ago

    The biggest regret of life is for one to take everything and do anything automatically. We should consciously and deliberately act, remembering, feeling, experiencing and immersing in all. The routine clamps down on our senses and dulls our mind. Do not automate your life.

  • carl commented on the post, suppose 7 years, 8 months ago

    Suppose you and I were best friends. Now make that happen. Now suppose you and I had similar interests. We do.

    Suppose those speaking and listening were one and the same. They are.

    Suppose those who care are also those who deserve care. They are.

    Suppose suppose suppose. Veiled truths behind suppositions.

    Given one edge of a blade, I’d gladly have another.

  • carl commented on the post, half 7 years, 8 months ago

    It just takes half of all that we’re capable of to accomplish twice what we can right now. All we have to do is believe and execute. So much of us gets lost in the drains and the gutters that what remains isn’t enough! Take our heads out of the daily grind and put them […]

    The playground was made of my mind and my soul. It took me places where it waw sidfiifuclt to go. It believed in me and I in it. So be whwat I saw the end of sit. Love the playground, sayd the man behind the plan. Love the ground and play amongst the rounded pleasurable […]

  • carl commented on the post, convinced 7 years, 9 months ago

    I am convinced that those who believe in the futility of hate have yet to truly experience hate themselves.
    Hate can be genuinely empowering, uplifting and soul-crushing!
    How dare those who deny it’s powers say that it’s impotent and degrading?
    Why, it is almost as if hate is an emotional tourniquet! What absurdity.

  • carl commented on the post, account 7 years, 9 months ago

    Take account of all your blessings, in disguise or otherwise, as well as your failings. They form the basis for your next steps, whatever those may be. Instead of allocating stock into your strengths, see if you can instead leverage your weaknesses. Try to stick to your heart and use the brain to guide when […]

  • carl commented on the post, trade 7 years, 9 months ago

    Trading up or trading down.
    It matters not,
    It only matters about whether she makes you laugh
    or makes you frown.

    We tend to see life as a system of barters,
    exchanges and haggling.
    Perhaps that is what it is,
    but do not delude yourself and think
    that it must be such.

  • carl commented on the post, hover 7 years, 9 months ago

    My hand hovered over the button. To press or not to press that is the question. From the left side came the angry mob. From the right, I saw apathy. The middle section was born out of fright and below me was the empty sea. Hovering over the mountaintops, the Gods are watching us all. […]

  • carl commented on the post, insect 7 years, 9 months ago

    The insects were worming their way through the dirt like…well…worms to be honest. They strung together and stuck together. They bandied about like bands of bandits. They chose the best and took off with the rest.

    What a disjoined, disconnected and unrepenting lack of solemn meaning. Expression without ambiguity lends itself to boredom.

  • carl commented on the post, insect 7 years, 9 months ago

    The insect beyond him was the insect inside of him. She took what there was to be taken so that he could fly without the wings that were within. Yet between the images and the cacophony of inspiration, reality took a firm hold of his being and he knew what he knew. It was no […]
