Heart is always the trump card.

Forgotten Letter #351 by James Andrew Crosby

To Not Bow Down

The choices and the things
you create and develop
can be terrible and miserable,
but you must not forget
that your life is never
as bad as you make it;
in its eternal nature,
your life is valuable.

All can be put together again if it is broken. Break a branch into two pieces and you can put them together again. Yet, the branch will forever wear the scar of disruption; and all other things will do the same.

Forgotten Letter #350 by James Andrew Crosby

May God Protect

It was simple:
I asked her
why she cared
about me,
and she
never
wrote
back.

Suggest a desired topic for a coming poem here; I shall try my best to implement it!

It is to write about, what stirs.

When The Beginning Ends

Sometimes
we love,
until we are
tired of it;
and sometimes
“eventually”
happens too soon.

Nothing you will confront exists without its opposite. If you are too weak to fight against it, think about the opposite and use it to defeat the problematic matter. You were born with the ability to find these opposites, develop them and use them for your good – it is an ability no one can hinder. So, when you feel strained, use your human stamina and say to yourself: “It is exhausting, but I will persevere”. If your mind confronts agitation, use your ability to calm your self and say to yourself: “I am a human being and I can stay calm if I want to”. Whenever you face something you do not enjoy, remind yourself of your powers to find the opposite and your ability to defeat its influence on your deeds.

Forgotten Letter #348 by James Andrew Crosby

Clean Yourself Up

Do not slash your limbs
with knifes or blades
which you used to need for
eating and shaving.
Do not throw your fists against
your weak embodiment,
with which you used to
represent a sign of resistance.
Do not burn your skin with
the cheap lighter you bought
during your late-night walk
at the gas station down the street.
But solely use the knifes for food,
only use the razor blades for shaving,
simply use your hands for good deeds,
and throw the lighter into the trashcan -
show everyone that you consist of more
than just regrets and the act of giving in.
