I just thought this was a funny take on what the mind seems to do at times. Trying to make important decisions and what not.

I had escaped

inside the corridors of my mind.

Or had I?


In as much as i would like to think possible,

this was NO escape!

in fact;

it was



conflict represented itself as a source

to be reckoned with

as I tossed and turned from one decision

to another


I would soon come to realise that:



Pulling silently away only to be

pulled back again, and again, and again...


A stronger force of will must be met

to engage this antagonising struggle.

Calls for help would only constitute

a deaf awareness.

The process had to come from within.


Definate decisions had to be made in strictest


One by one the antagonising thoughts left

with nothing more than minor damage

to attend to

the healing process had already begun

Katie, this is so very interesting.

Most of the time when we end up somewhere, it is because we are escaping from something else. That is why we feel entrapped where we are. What if we 'choose' to go where we would, not as a means of escaping from something else, but, having resolved all the other issues, as a conscious and deliberate decision to get there? Then we are no longer entrapped.

This, of course, was your older writing, and I hope you have not 'escaped', but 'chosen to' be where you are now.

Yes, this was only a few months ago, it was the end of june actually. I had an opportunity to move through a housing thing we have here. It came much sooner than I had imagined but I was only given two months to decide. I was not ready so eventually I let it go and stayed. But yes the conflicting decisions to stay or go had so many other things to think about that went with either decision.
either decision would have been good so why bother moving if its jsut as good here? lol. HA who knows, I'm just glad its over. Next year I'll think about it again.
But yes decisions I am not too good with, I am more of a where the instict takes me person. I like to think I am guided and I never wanted any sort of decision making LOL
do you hear me universe? NO Decisions LOl Yes Urja I am from the 'I don't know anything club' so there!!! ^_^

Has anyone told u before that ur writings soothe souls..i am coming back again...and again and fav lines which set me thinking would be....

A stronger force of will must be met

to engage this antagonising struggle.

Calls for help would only constitute

a deaf awareness.

The process had to come from within

yes the process has to be from within...why blame external circumstances ?? What effect they have on us? We ourselves are responsible for what we get...

And when we r aware of the internal peace, things are so resolved and happy....and that is why u always help all of us because u now know the truth...

^_^ I don't know the highest truths. I have guideposts to here and there. But we all share truth. My truth is mixed with your truth and mixed with their truth and WOLLA we can learn that it is all the same. When we mix it up we make a batch of love ^_^
^_^ Pratibha, I am so glad you like this one.
makes me feel good that words can connect in such a way.
Yes, Yes, the internal peace. this is where I go during meditation. I jsut wish that i could stay there longer sometimes or do I? lol,
thankyou sweetie, love and sunshine ~katie

entrapment is it ??

Mon, September 22nd, 2008 7:56pm


lol, No, I'm sorry, it means that you were drawn in to a place where it is not easy to get out. So you are trapped.

now the poem is different then huh?
well think of it as funny. the situation it self wasn't funny but placed in these words its kinda funny I thought.
it means that the mind is so big and a part of it entrapped you. You thought you were safe but no lol. the thoughts were still there and definate decisions had to made. so it kinda means that you think you can get away but you can not. At least not for long anyway.

Mon, September 22nd, 2008 1:43pm


YES KATIE, it sure is different now...our mind is indeed such a strange moment we know it and the very next moment, we don't know it...

friend or foe...all on us and our approach....control on it means liberating oneself from all pain...such a wonderful poem...

hehe yes the mind is complicated.
but I will escape it again and again lol.
the only thing is you can't get away from it. oh-no lol.
well its true; it is either freind or foe.

I use to weigh more when I was a construction worker lol, yes its hard to see now, but I was and I was much more muscely. Of course I drank too, so there you go, beer and hard work lol.

This is really good, Katie. I'm glad you uncovered it. The earlier you reminds me of the earlier me. Also reminds me of the old proverb: "Physician, heal thyself."

'Bye for now...

Hi Craig, I am sure there is much in common with the old us lol. seems we are many people in one.
this was only written not even three months ago.
yes there is actually many that are not on here but there is jsut so many here as it is.
I like the saying; "Physician heal thyself" our bodies/minds are on the mend 24/7 and when we help them out we can go far. take care thanks a bunch ^_^
