Signs…a poem…3 pictures

I’ve carried lots of signs
for lots of reasons
in lots of places
marched with others
for lots of reasons
in lots of places
sometimes
in crowds so enormous
the risk of being
trampled to death
was very real
that’s what we do
we carry signs
or flags
or wear buttons
or make posters
for our front doors
or wear ribbons
or go door-to-door
or pass out leaflets
at train stations
or on the street
or make phone calls
or donate time
and money
or
beg
to make it
STOP
or
START
or
CHANGE
because
PROTEST
even if it no longer works
is all we have
against
those who hold
the power
over all of our
lives
and the lives
of our children
loved ones
cats and dogs
our environment
the innocent
and the earth Herself
in their greedy hands
we do those things
because we can’t do
anything else
we have given away
our power
and this is what happens
when people are
powerless

Yet another sign…see below

you are worthy of love sign beside tree and road

  1.  Who decides who is worthy of anything, let alone love?
  2.   What are the exact rules/qualifications for being worthy?
  3.   How many of those rules have to be met to make one worthy?
  4.   Exactly what does worthy mean?
  5.   Who made up the definition?
  6.   Why does one have to BE worthy, in order to be loved?
  7.   What if someone doesn’t want to be worthy, or loved?
  8.   Isn’t everyone automatically worthy just because they showed up?
  9.   If everyone is worthy, why is this an issue?
  10.   Are these words supposed to make people feel…  Loved?  Better?  Worthy?
  11.   Who is the person telling others of what they are worthy?
  12.   Is the writer worthy enough to tell other people things he has no control or authority over?  What exactly does the writer do that makes him worthy to tell others they are worthy?
  13.   Do we need to be worthy for anything else?
  14.   Will these words be meaningful to those who feel unloved because they feel unworthy?
  15.    If we weren’t told we had to be worthy of something, there would be no need for signs.  Being told we are worthy, implies that being unworthy is a strong possibility, even if we don’t know for sure what that means.
  16.   Seriously.  We are insane.  We make our own problems.  We have be bored out of our minds to worry about worthiness.  Expectations KILL.  And people reading the sign, instead of watching the road, might make them unworthy of living.

 

Being unworthy means you aren’t meeting the expectations of others, including your parents, religion, friends, culture, etc.  It’s that simple.  You can’t be a priest because being a woman makes you unworthy….blah blah blah.  However, if you are a priest, you can rape as many children as you like and you will still be worthy to represent your male god.

Worthy is a word that is defined by people who want to control others.  Name calling, bullying, conformity, and other people telling you whether or not you’re good enough, is so ridiculous, I’m surprised we don’t all fall down laughing, except the brain washing is really good, since it starts at birth.  Worthy pits people against each other…that’s why the word exists.

Think about it.

The Sign…

This is the sign you've been looking for neon signage

The way our brains work (or don’t) is to allow us to manipulate EVERYTHING.  If we are looking for something, we can find it.  If we don’t want to see what’s right in front of us, we over look it and think it’s not there.

If you’re looking for a sign…one will be there, if you want it to be.  ANYTHING can be that sign.  A feather, found on the sidewalk, a song, a sentence in a book.  There is no end to signs because we make them up as we go along.  We find them, when we need them.

There’s nothing wrong with that, of course.  It’s how we get through life.  We see what we want to, and don’t see what we want to ignore, unless it hits us hard and won’t stop.  But even then, in times of extreme stress, we can find the “signs,” we are looking for in pretty much anything at all.

I love this photo, because it means just want it says…THIS IS THE SIGN YOU’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR.  If we want to believe it…we need look no further…until the next time.

Signs…a poem

white neon light signage

people are always
asking for
SIGNS
but signs
are literally
EVERWHERE
we LOOK

YOU ARE HERE
and there’s no
escaping it
except through
death
but we don’t actually
know what happens
after death
so we might
simply be
RECYCLED
and immediately
start all over
again

what if
we are
always
HERE

how scary
is that
