Inside Paramnesia

9 Oct

I forget that I am human,

I forget that perfection is a disease.

That it can take us towards a level of inaccuracy about ourselves

That starves the soul

Of the water, it needs to grow.

 

It is easy to dwell on the things we do not have

It is easy to wish for the body of the gods

The lips of Aphrodite

The eyes of muses,

But do not get lost in these physical constraints

The world is constantly changing

One day this is good

And that is bad

And back again

So why waste the mental space with

The nonsensical?

Maybe we are trained to want the things we can’t have

Trained to constantly be unhappy

Buy this lipstick and you will cause envy

Spray this fragrance and you will be irresistible.

 

All these physical things

Are much more products of insanity.

Because, it’s not the product that makes you iressistable, beautiful, charismatic,

It is you, who encompasses all the

Attributes of the great.

 

So take a step back

Ask yourself does this matter?

It’s easy to get lost,

Its easy to think the ridiculous is what you want,

That’s why we must question our selves

Question where the motive comes from.

Because in the end, we are all human

All given the same gift,

Of a life no other being encompasses,

Cherish that which matters

That, which counts,

Forget the nonsense,

Forget the noise

Remember the music—

The beat called life.
