TASTE YOURSELVES

shame-on-you

In this stormy era

Where sounds listen to sounds

And birds bed

I’m calling on you;

Yes you:

Death

Hurt

Hatred

Pain

Sadness

Sickness

Shame

To stand firm

And taste yourselves

When you’re done,

Please give us detailed reports

On death’s death

Hurt’s hurt,

Hatred’s hatred,

Pain’s pain

Sadness’ sadness

Sickness’s sickness

And Shame’s shame

If you really loved the experience

All will shut up

And let you stay

But if you loathe it

Take the vice versa

Then we’ll call out the other botherers

To follow suit

  1. Oh my goodness — only if I can express myself what a beautiful thought it is for death to taste death or pain to taste pain — they will stop being what they are only if they know their taste!! Beautiful and eye-opening! Loved it!!

  2. It’s like can I buy it first and if I don’t like it or if it does fit, then can I return to try another. I love this, of course my interpretation is a little different than what you are saying, but hey that’s me
    Great work Cecilia many blessings
