Until our backs are against the walls and the walls are against our backs, we won’t completely understand force. Force is a good thing; a majestical thing. The fear of poverty forces me to awaken before my body chooses to. The fear of the pain associated with disappointing the child in me forces me to push into the darkness when fear tells me to turn back. Force… Keep going, for the other side, although unknown, must be greater than what I’ve always known. You have forced me into a corner that needed me. Perhaps, I needed the corner. However, because we are destined strangers, both of us have decided to fight. Why? Losing you means that we both lose. What good is a corner without a fighter, and more importantly, what good is a fighter without a corner? Refuge… You forced me to write this, so I’m writing. You are a force of Nature in my Life that has caused every seed in me to grow. I didn’t know that I had so many seeds. Watching them grow is scary, humbling, and painful. The fear is associated with doubt. The humbling is associated with graciousness, and the pain is associated with growth. You have forced me to write, so I’m writing. As the Queen has died, a King is born. Long live the King. You see, this King was forced to wear a crown that was always destined, yet always unacknowledged. You have forced me to acknowledge this crown. You are a force that has forced me to acknowledge that we are a force of Nature. What could possibly be stronger than you and I? What could possibly be stronger than this? When making Love, you spread your limbs as though you’re being sacrificed. Perhaps, you have decided to sacrifice yourself in order for our Love to live. Nonetheless, I both worship and feed. You are a force of Nature that has forced me to embrace a side of my own Nature that I never knew existed. The forces of Nature have led us to one another. As I breathe you in, you exhale Life into me. The forces of Nature have brought us together. Nothing can come between us……Patrick
As always, again, this week, please do something for someone other than yourself for no other reason than to make their lives better. If you make it to where you’re going, please don’t forget to leave a map for the rest of us. Always Choose Love Because Love Changes Everything….
