Reverb10 – December 11 – 11 Things


I begin my list…
11 Things My Life Doesn’t Need
Stuff gathering dust, clogging the closets, piling on my desks
Malevolence and pain entwined, gagging my soul
Rejection, imagined or not
Worry
Inadequacy
Pessimism
Too much frenzy spent at work
Too much hoopla trying to do the “right thing”
Not enough fervor doing what I want to do
Not knowing what I want to do
Loneliness
11 is too easy
I can go on
In perpetuum
I am a list maker
It is an obsession
It doesn’t help  
11 can be small
Like a kindergartener
Holding up two fingers
One on one hand
One on the other
Sliding them together
To make 11
Or is it two?
I begin my list…
One plus one is two
Easier to discern, lighter to hold
One in one hand
One in the other
Ego
God
One to loosen, the other to draw near
Each constant, necessary
One plus one is two balancing precariously
Relinquishing the ego
Surrendering to Him
