The Nail; #NaBloPoMo Day 20

There was a young man walking down the street and happened to see a old man sitting on his porch. Next to the old man was his dog, who was whining and whimpering. The young man asked the old man “What’s wrong with your dog” The old man said “He’s laying on a nail”. The young man asked “Laying on a nail?, Well why doesn’t he get up?” The old man then replied “It’s not hurting bad enough.”

I wish for the blanket of comfort to be ripped off my naked body.

A state of restlessness so disconcerting, so all-consuming

I have no choice but to transform.

To be Reborn.

I wish for Desire so disquieting

That the Universe has no other choice

But to Listen; To hear, see my need

My screams, piercing

Pure, blinding, explosive Truth

A soul naked, vulnerable and raw

A Change, inevitable.

I wish to be shaken, rocked

Tested, broken, Shattered


Emerging anew

Armored with Authenticity, unbreakable Truth

Fierce and fearless Love

Open. Growing. Movement. Forward.

I wish for the blanket of Comfort to be ripped off my naked body

A Pain Unbearable

A Diamond Emerges.
