Insecurities of the Flesh

Posted in Culture, Love, Media, Poetry, Relationships with tags , , , , on March 27, 2008 by 99ppp

I wanna be sexy
I just feel ugly

I want someone to like me
I want someone to love me.

Am I too thin
Am I too fat

I just want to eat
I don’t care what people think
I just want to purge
I don’t care what people think
Oh how a little part of me gets lost inside
I retreat, I hide
I just want to be left alone
to die a little inside

I want someone to like me
I want someone to love me

My waist is too big
my waist is too round
My dick is too small
my dick is too long
My boobs are too big
or are they to small

I want someone to like me
I want someone to love me

Why do they all hate me
My physical scars
Which sears my soul
Why do I feel defeated
The images I see  are always
one of insecurities.

I want someone to like me
I want someone to love me

Blame the fashion , blame the T.V. ,
Blame playboy centerfold page number 3
Blame ourselves take a true look at ourselves
Why do I believe the lens
That defines what is  beauty
The mind becomes infected
by their carnival of vanity
reflected in a distorted mirror

That filter showing “what is”wrong”,
instead of what is beautiful

Eroding self confidence…
That distortion exchanged
for a  fistful of dollars
Why do they prosper
from our self-hatred?

Find the spirit
Find the soul
Find true beauty
which can only be defined by oneself

Find love in myself
Find love in life

I want to like me
I want to love me

I will shed my layers
I will shed my skin
I will shed my insecurities
I will transform from within

I will find that sacred space
I will find that balance
I will find peace
One day at a time

The Stork: Animation on Overpopulation

A brilliant animated meditation on overpopulation by Nina Paley. A little appetizer while I prepare a longer post on that topic to the post “A Case Against Having Any or More Children”. Here it is:

I Guess You’ll Do [Fliggo]

In the kindred spirit of two prior posts here (The Myth of Male Power, A Case Against Marriage), I found a humourous animated clip derived from Mike Polk’s text about settling with a partner, rather than finding passion with one. Unfortunately, I couldn’t embed it here. Here’s the link, and please ignore the unfortunate title there “The Sad Truth about Relationships”, since there is no reason why it needs to be that way (see Join the Resistance: Fall in Love).

The self is a unique receptor of sense data.

Are we searching
for what is common,
or what is right?
The struggle we fight,
The power we crave,
The EGO we feed.

The constant slave to a system
that feeds the machine of greed.
The new religion

Consumption, destruction.
We fill a void
Indulgence,Opulence
What a waste we create.

The constant slave to a system
That feeds the machine of greed.

Is our spirit lost ?
The battle, the war
Over mind, body and soul.

The constant slave to a system
That feeds the machine of greed.

Do we follow the masses?
Do we stand alone?
The system is failing
It can no longer sustain

The pursuit of love,
The pursuit of happiness,
The pursuit of acceptance,
We seek from others
Have we lost touch
with our own voice?

The constant slave to a system
That feeds the machine of greed.

NO LONGER A SLAVE
Scream,
Just scream
Scream out loud
Find YOUR voice

Reflections of Light

Light..
You are the light that blossoms all thought
Water..
You are the water where ideas flow
Snow..
You are the snow that creates a new canvas
Sun..
You are the sun , the birth of life

You are all I need to feed my soul

You are energy
my sensation , my love


Branches..
You are the branches that connects us all
Earth..
You are the earth where life is born

You are all that my soul needs.

Stars..
You are the stars that light up the sky.
A reflection and reminder of light
that has passed through our lives.

you all that my soul needs.
