Gone Fishin’

 

 

Hundreds of friends on social sites but the sight-seeing I do is always alone.

Scenic routes to nowhere.

Breath taking views that always prelude
breath taking falls.

Pride is a faulty fence that won’t hold under your weight.

Especially mine.

I leaned in to rest and got too comfortable.

And I have been trying to dig myself out since.

I hate myself for it.

Because questions only give birth to more questions.

Conversations turn into more conversations.

Everyone is SURE of everything, which is really nothing.

Daring to dig deep but deep thinking doesn’t pay the bills.

 

Talk really IS cheap.

 

I prefer writing poems lately instead.

I like the indirect way it guts my soul.

It  holds me  under the  faucet, like a  fish.

Spilling cold water, blood and secrets.

Baited and hooked.

Filet of fresh foolishness.

Piercing the knife through my belly and up toward that trouble making throat where my voice always escapes me.

Running thumbs up my spine to clear all the waste, (just like you taught me) because no one else is gonna do it.

The sharp blade of reality will scrape the scales and dirt that burden you,

but it never really clears it all.

It only accumulates to add character and flavor.

Wrapped in garlic butter and foil and thrown to the fire to become something worthy of the fight.

#Repost @anytimefitness_northreno with @get_repost ・・・ Dig DEEP!! 💪🏽🔥 WHAT is the PURPOSE behind each key swipe into the gym? Each minute you push yourself through your cardio instead of letting yourself off easy and stopping. Each rep you lift with weights, even when it burns and you’re sore? WHY did you decide to start this journey in the first place? WHAT is the reason you got up and DID THE THING, when your alarm went off today? What is your WHY? . . Maybe it’s more than your pant size or a number on the scale? Maybe its because you KNOW those pants feel and look better when you’re wearing them with confidence? Maybe its because you no longer have to be embarrassed of being winded when you’re out being active with your family? Maybe its because you have things you LOVE to do that you weren’t able to do before...but have been able to work hard and give that back to yourself? Maybe its because you haven’t able to fully look in the mirror and like you what you see...but something about keeping your promise to yourself and finishing each work out is getting you closer and closer to be being able to? Find the REASON. Find your why. FIND YOUR PURPOSE and you will will AMAZE yourself at how far you can go! 🔥💪🏽 Share yours and tag someone below who will remind you! . . “What makes you special is your ability to discover and THRIVE in your purpose, despite your past hurts, pain and disappointments.” -Mastin Kipp, “Claim Your Power” . . #whatisyourwhywednesday #letsmakehealthyhappen #teamborden
