Our Overthinking Into Fear
This I cannot tell you, for we are complex in our overthinking. We bring in thoughts that hinder us, thoughts built upon pretenses. On things we have given life to from the curation of others. We build fears from observations or our quickly fading past.
And as we live by these absurd fears, we only bring our demise early. We become a withering flower to the ever falling sun. Only to become a decayed skeletal of wasteful tears.
And those mornings we wake in the arms of melancholy, or the strangling of our throats from the tedious hands of anxiety. We fondle our thoughts, ourselves, to the glutenous mouth of doubt.
We worry for things that have yet to happen, or have already happened. We bring fear through fiction of what horrors we believe shall transpire. Rather than what beauty may result in the attempt to go beyond our fear.
And if we are such magnificent creatures, why so we so quickly design our own carnage. We are the conductors of our symphony, yet we treat them as if they are rubbish. A mere myth of our existence. And rather than tuning our instruments, learning with practice, with mistakes.
We slaughter our musicians, and whom will want to be the audience of a massacre, of a murderous hound of weakness?
This life, I know it to be fickle in its ways. But much does it have to offer, but we must not be greedy in our pity, in our fears. We feed that which we think is us, and what we think, is too often a fish pulled from water.
Hung from a hook in a helpless attempt to flounder about in escape. But we allow death before we die, we surrender the moment the hook sinks. And then we wallow in our pain as if it is another's fault. As if our foolish attraction to what is not us has killed us. Or that we are but what we are and no change is capable
What a miserable existence we can give ourselves, and we only seem to be multiplying this narrative of thought. Hastefully taking the newest disorder we can scrounge up to explain our short comings.
Yet, I see men whom have one limb and praise their days. Yet, I see a children on the path of death before the age of six, and they laugh more than you and I.
What have we become in world where opportunity is only limited by our own thoughts.
And so I say, be no more afraid of you. Be no more afraid of others, for they too, are struggling to find themselves in meaning.

I have been writting poetry on medium, does anyone still wish me to write short stories on here?
A Summer Bird's Winter Perch I watch this lonely bird chirp upon a slopping branch. Its feet wrapped firmly around the thin finger of bark. As I watch, I commiserate its position. Sitting there, alone, singing with no others to listen. Speaking I assume, to itself. Maybe contemplating its unfortunate circumstance. For the rest had already left for the winter. If I am not mistaken it was only a few days ago that I watched a flurry of birds dart by. Their wings flapping against the brisk wind collectively. Not a single one appeared worried of their journey. Their shadows crawled quickly across the empty streets during a fall evening. I watched them pass by like a feather floating down stream. I couldn't help but wonder, how long must they fly? What winds must they fight, what elements must they battle against? All must be against them as is every moment in time is against us all? Yet they fly forth to the heat of earth. Dependent upon their survival but, what
The Taste of Love, Will It Ever Be Mine? When will I find my lips upon the sweet taste of love? Lost to its scent like the aromal smell of roses upon skin. Will there be an end, beneath an apple tree buried next to my other half? Or will I drown in the soiled pity of my heart as whiskey stains my veins? For I find the misery of myself to be a dull company, but yet its tingles with addiction. And I draw my eyes close to the empty halls of the damned. Screaming for peace but always find myself chocking on pride. Lost in a dense fog I created in the heat of breath upon my frozen heart. Distant am I, in the reaches of tears. For they have no existence in the forefront of my mind, nor heart. Some may call me hollow, lackluster in the dreams of my own thoughts. What is one without the acceptance of tears, without the bravery to step into the engagement of vows? How does one truly go beyond his own vicious habits if there lies no other to call them out? I hear my soul whispe
