i was late
through no fault
of my own
at least
that's what
i tell myself
just one of those
occasions
where
try as you might
the universe
won't allow you
to leave
on time
standing
at the threshold
one final
pat of pockets
to check
i had all
that i needed
looking up
to gauge the need
for coat
or umbrella
i witness
an inhumane globule
of avian faeces
viscous and creamy
in colour
and consistency
exploding
upon the path
two steps ahead
of me
i see no sign
of the culprit
hearing only
its cacophony
of enjoyment
or maybe
disappointment
drifting
into the distance

conscious rivulets of thought
abate the cyclonic storms
of karmic mind
I was conceived on acid and whippets, the drugs a kaleidoscope of umbilical dreams.
I was conceived on bad luck and lust, from darkness and sexually exploitive childhood trauma.
I was conceived on teenage dreams and difficult childhoods, to black sheep children of 17.

I was raised on addiction and narcissism, a love bomb here and authoritarian abuse there.
I was raised on the chess long game, to lose a piece here means to win at the end.
I was raised on 2000s tv, Lorelei Gilmore my wish for a mother, Rory my idol.

I taught myself strength in building up a fantasy on the outside while my castle crumbled within.
I picked myself up by the tendrils of a lost childhood, by the whispers of good memories, by the hiding places I found in pages upon pages of someone else’s imagination.

And I let it all go at 28. To find peace. To start over. To build myself a new castle with no more haunted corners or echoes of pill bottles or smells of ***** and orange juice permeating the breaths of those who walk these sacred halls.
Rib cage cut open, heart destroyed and renewed, ancient umbilical nooses cut with teeth.

I will no longer fall victim to my mother’s circumstances or my father’s mistakes, I will never have the soul I’ve created look at me and ask himself if he is loved or safe.

I am cycle breaker,
I am generational karma’s worst ******* fear,
I am no longer frightened maiden,
I am fearsome mother.
I am new.

not even a buddha who can
count the raindrops of a storm
that last a thousand years
can understand another persons karma

Karma: taking care

of yourself and your neighbours --


now and now and now.
Collection "The drama"
Destiny Jan 19
I have had too many instances in my life where people have tried to take my voice from me and take my choice from me countless times .. I wasn’t able to fight back all this years ago when I got jumped in that bathroom and I wasn’t able to say no when I was under the influence coerced into what to this day most would call ****.. I should be stronger I should be saying **** everyone I should scream I’m at my breaking point…& my wits end with so many different emotions left to fend .. I’m a good person but I’m afraid I’m gonna go OJ Simpson once I’ve reached my limit . I’m tired of taking other peoples **** I’m tired of being too nice, some **** is really unacceptable, unnecessary and unforgivable. Who cares what other people think or feel when they have hurt me too? I’m tired of feeling for others when I should be worried about me . I’ve unpacked and healed so many traumas but there is a pattern that I’m attracting that needs to cease.. I’m scared of my true anger deep down cuz it can get crazy if it isn’t transmuted correctly but I got this. I know this , I need to express myself and have no regrets. Some people don’t think but surely I do . Surely I’m two steps ahead and above them at their ******* games but why do they choose to play games? This is real life not a movie .. they’re insane and I’m done blaming myself for other peoples projections they need to work on themselves. Shadow work at its finest. my ancestors and spirit guides always are gonna look out for me I’m a goddess not a Harlot so above all people should watch what they say or do to me. God gonna spin the block for me✝️

the karma flows in
my mind again i am weak
a moment   i stop
Do you know why we came to earth?
Why did we get this human birth?
Everything that happens in our life is Karma.
Very few of us realize the Truth of this drama!

How does the Law of Karma work?
What happens when from morals and ethics we shirk?
Whatever you do, that’s what you will get.
Nobody can escape from Karma, that’s a bet!

Why don’t we see an apple on a mango tree?
Is there a way from Karma to be free?
The law has a principle - as you sow, so shall you reap.
If we are going to sin, we are sure to weep!

Why do we see a child being born blind?
Why do we think that God is unkind?
Because we don’t realize the Divine Truth,
Life is Karma, we don’t get to the root.

Is God controlling our Life from heaven?
Is there a way to reach cloud eleven?
The Creator has created the Law of the Deed.
Our good Karma will make us happy, indeed!

Why do bad things happen to good people?
Why is there suffering for the weak and the feeble?
Nothing is luck, nothing depends on chance.
Life is a drama and Karma makes us dance!

Why do we cry, look at the sky and ask ‘Why?’
Oh Lord, I didn’t ****** or ****, did I?
While we pray to God as we experience hell,
We don’t listen to the Truth that Karma does tell!

Can anybody escape from Karma, the action?
Can anybody escape from Life, the reaction?
Whatever we have done, we must receive the fruit.
Karma is Life, this is the Truth

Does Life depend on Chance? Does Life depend on luck?
Can we control whatever happens, choose what to pluck?
While we have a freewill and can choose our deeds,
We can’t escape from the thorns that we planted as seeds

Does Karma decide all that happens on earth?
Will Karma also decide our rebirth?
Yes, we are glad or sad, depending on what we do.
And this will continue into our next Life, it is true!

Who carries the Karma, to whom does it belong?
Is the account of Karma, short or long?
The body will die, but Karma belongs to the mind.
It will appear in a new body, leaving the dead one behind!

The Law of Karma, can anyone escape?
Is it only for a man or also for an ape?
Every living creature must follow this law.
The law is perfect, it has no flaw!

Who controls Life, Karma or God?
Can I get away if I pray to my Lord?
Those who think that prayer can do the trick,
They ultimately cry, when Karma gives a kick!

To whom does this Law of Karma belong?
Is Karma stronger or is God more strong?
God has created Karma to control the earth.
Everything is Karma, our death and our birth!

How can we then from Karma escape?
How can we reach God at heaven’s gate?
Only those who realize – the doer is not ‘I’
From Karma they are free and to God they fly!

What is the way from Karma to be free?
To be born, not to return as a human, animal or tree?
When we realize we are not the body, ego and mind,
Then free from Karma ourselves we will find!

What is the mystery that happens at death?
What happens when the body loses its breath?
Those who carry Karma, will come back to earth.
As per their action, will be their rebirth!    

What is the way to escape rebirth?
How can I escape from the triple suffering on earth?
It happens by realizing we are the Divine Soul,
This is our Life’s ultimate goal!


What happens to those who don’t Realize the Truth?
What happens if we don’t discover Karma in our youth?
Agony of the ego, we face, misery of body and mind
And this will continue again and again, we will find!

So why should we worry about Karma and our Life?
Why not just enjoy with our kids, our family life?
If we don’t realize Life is Karma, we will cry,
And we will return to suffer after we die!

What is our Life’s ultimate goal?
Is it necessary to live as the Soul?
Yes, this is the way to realize God
To live blissfully on earth till we unite with our Lord!
