How Why can’t I shake this off. Why can’t the brain, heart, soul…whatever, release at will? For all humanities massive accomplishments, this seemingly simple task eludes us. For all the marvels conceived within man’s imagination, why not the mundane task of control over Longings, Desire, and Want. Why not the much sought ability to Erase all traces, all thoughts, all links whenever we would like? I wander without reason to a movie title, Do The Right Thing. The enormity behind these four simple basic words rushes in like the ocean tide. A phrase one often hears, one usually agrees with. Yet how little thought is spent on the ardor of this task. Not always. At times it comes so easy… Go to work. Recycle. Be Polite. Things done with little consciousness. And at other times. Forget, Let Go, Move On…How? How, when breathing becomes a struggle, when being is painful? Once something is burned into the very depths of our being, How do we expel it? When it slams into me in the middle of my dreams, When everything seen, felt and heard sends me reeling back to it over and over and over. Often told we can do anything we put our mind to. How can I be?
