** All for a better rose**
As we change and rearrange the shapes of ours lives.
It causes me great pause to digest the future in the wind.
To what end do we fill these voids with things and toys
Of girls or boys whispers and noise.
Shall we give it all away and start a new
No that’s been done and it’s no fun
it always just
More stuff and things
big fancy rings, but what
of what we create.
To paint or prose to heal others woes
or listen with eyes wide with Intent.
It’s all so strange as I enter the next stage and watch the colors wash away.
One minute a need, a want a glimmer of hope.
The next your dead, to worms you’ll be feed
All for a better rose
“Sometimes words continue to ring true long after they’ve been written and forgotten.”
thought provoking on this cold and early morning –
Time for a cozy fire and cocao
I hope the evening has found you with a warm heart and home.
A beautiful rose can be composed of a body no longer needed. The spirit is freed from the “being” need, and the journey carries on. – Sheri S Bessi
Much love Benjamin. Sheri

Hello, my friend! Still need to pay you a longer visit, but I’ll be around. How are you?
Im still kicking around the paint and words from time to time. Lifes been on a constant rollercoaster since April. I hope your doing well.
Ooh, not exactly. I’ve been very sick and dealing with the torture of seeing my country being merged with Haití. It’s a complete and absolute nightmare, Benjamin.

For the time being. Life is full of surprises, my friend. Glad you, finally, got to OK.
Its learning how to accept love thats the hardest part of this adventure. But im learning that im not the sum of my demons but the man thats survived them.
