Resillent…..

Ready to bounce back….always…

Takes a punch well….

Keeps plugging away….

Getting nowhere…sort of fast….

Isn’t this the way we describe people to be….who we pummel….?

Who we tell day after day…after they are dragged through the streets weeping….

Hey…buck up….

I know I have heard it enough….

And I am not talking about the people who drink themselves into a coma…because momma was strict when you was growing up…

Or the addict…to whatever …..who wanders the streets…trying to shut off the pictures from their latest escapade….which is of course everyone else’s fault….

I am speaking to the people out there…who take bullets everyday….and have gaping oozing wounds…that never heal….

Those that we tell…

Be aware…

Forgive….

Meditate on that happy place….

While you kiss my ass….

While I make the wound sharper and crisper….

Because we all know…

You are resilient….bounce back well…..

Right…..

Get over it…

Move on…

Let it go….

You ever notice each of those things are said from people who have money…

Can move on…get away…

Ever notice…the person who cares for everyone else….and thinks a hello is a dream…

Because they can barely acknowledge their existence….so why would anyone else….

So they spend a lifetime….

Being the resilient fool….

And when they go away…we do not care….

Because we do not care….

And we never pause long enough….

As Pema Chodron speaks of….

To ask ourselves….why am I in this rabbit hole….

Why am I looking at another as expendable….and making them expendable…

And after years of reading….

And at first they were self help books….

Now they are reality…love books….truth….in black and white…my favorite colors….

These books are not written for the likes of me…

Or fellow companions on this road…of balancing….

No they were written for those….

Abandoners….selfish…pin headed….users…

Who seek to make the wounds deeper….

Why do I got there….?

Because I am not resilient anymore….
