How Convenient ~ poetry by Slay ~ 4/30/23

article image placeholderUploaded by @Renee_Slay
Weakened, trembling, I look into the face of what I love so very dear off my knees and to my feet. I'm tired of you putting me here. Head lifting from the release of shame that you slathered on in fear. Eyes locked as I find strength from my own truth so bright and so clear. How convenient. I've let you put me in this place so many times before and you do it because I let you. I wanted your love and nothing more

And the fact that most of us are not even remotely remorseful about it, it shows that we need to take a step back and reevaluate. This is great. This is awesome. And I relate with you. I don't have the exact words right now, but this is soulful

I absolutely love that poem. It was like you were speaking about a narcissist. Like everything that was in the flow of your poem seemed like you were talking about a narcissist, someone who appears to be perfect, or it got a s*** together. And, you know, me and you talk. And that's one of the things that I think I attract about one

Ah, thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. And a lot of our style, or what we say, because it's soulful and I've noticed it in yours as well, is from a deep place. And it is healing. 100% healing. It is how I get it out. I have been through too much. And if you've been reading any of my older poetry and the new, it's a story. Thank you. Thank you for saying that

I'm so glad that you listened to it because I know that we talk and that we got some real f***** up similar situations and I figured you would resonate with it. But I'm really, really glad you took the time to listen to it because, man, we draw them, don't we? But that's why we got to be careful because it they can only act for so long. You know what I mean? Like they are the best actors

Thank you. There was a lot of power in that one. I know you felt it because you read my energy well, but oh, it was coming out. Oh, it was coming out. Cycle broken. I hope others join. Thank you

And the other being that if I can take all this s*** because it's been s*** after s*** after s***, and I can help someone with it, anyone, even just not to feel alone, then it gave purpose to my s***. The crap I've been through is no longer just crap. It's serving purpose. And I would have easily signed up for all of this if it meant helping someone else. Thank you

And and we had to go through some things to develop to develop our spirit and develop our and evolve our human form into this light of its own, because we are light. And with all the bad that's out there, this needs to happen. And that's why we're seeing more and more people at the top with the light, helping people up. And I love that we're blessed to be a part of that process. It's beyond what I could ever even imagine
