Why is it when I'm sober


Everything hurts me inside


I reach out to god for freedom


Freedom from the screams in my mind


I let god in


I try not to sin


I always try to be kind





They tell me to do this for me


Look deep in myself to find me


If I am happy with me


I will find what I need


To get myself free from my mind




I am doing all this for me


I am not trying to hide inside me


God gives me repreves


And I am happy with me


But I can't seem to let myself fly




No one lets me in


Or tells me of my sins


Those sins that I dont realize





I see them everyday


I always stop & say hey


They let me walk on


Like I'm doing it wrong


But I look deep inside & don't see




I try to find help to see


Except no one is talkig with me


So I sit here alone in a crowd


I just want to sit here & cry




When I cry it helps me inside


Gets me free from the screems in my mind




I am peaceful again


I am letting god in


I am doing the best that I can




What is it that I have to be


So peaple start talking with me


And I might loose that hurt inside

Sometimes it is lonelier when there are a lot of people around than when we are by ourselves, since at least then no one is ignoring us. Being comfortable in our own mind or skin is tricky for most people....and you will find on any of these forums that when you post here, people will post back. I stopped feeling so isolated when I found people to talk to who understood what I was going physically.

I just wanted you to know that someone heard you.

"You are letting your opinion be colored by facts again."
'When I want your opinion, I'll give it to you."
these are both from my father.

The eternal question how to get away from yourself

"Wherever you go there you are"

The answer is paradoxical as all great truths are

Get drunk, stoned, eat, have sex, blah blah blah bla bla

Yet in the end we are all failures

In the words of Shakespeare " A tale told by an idiot signifying nothing"

Oh yeah the answer !! Be a great failure

Once you truly accept that all structures are unstable including your mind (ego) you transcend it and find that "you (true essence)" are the answer

"you are the truth the way and the life"


Spiritual awakening is awakening from the dream of thought

Hello MattP --- you wouldn't be mattyp, by any chance? Welcome back to A&R, I've been wondering where you were....

Nice post.... sometimes you'll feel more lonely in a crowd of friends and strangers than you will alone in the wilderness. You can never escape yourself. Your mind is not your enemy, it can be your friend if you let it.

(((( hugs )))))
