I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
And I will put my Spirit in you and move you
to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
This blog is created for the two main purposes of furthering geographical knowledge and pedagogy...But of course, having fun while writing is also another important concern of this geognut. I do admit that this is a convenient outlet to bitch and rant too...By the way, much appreciation to Ed for helping me with this blog's title!
It has been two long years since.
Two long years of pondering,
Two long years of reflection,
Two long years of looking at the mirror…
Programmed to behave in a certain way,
Socialised since birth that emotions are signs of weaknesses,
Maybe being robotic makes things easier, predictable…
I know these to be untrue.
But why then is expression so difficult?
Why do I seek security in being robotic?
Perhaps deviating from the norm is scary,
Perhaps the feeling of being ‘lost’ makes it unpalatable,
Perhaps I am still waiting for the right moment,
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.
A word signalling indecisiveness,
A word highlighting the inability to act.
Seize the day instead? Perhaps…
Trudging through time and space,
Never expected for events to unfold as they have.
Certain facts have been proffered and established,
Does the situation change then? I hope yes and no.
You have comforted me.
The dichotomy settled,
And I feel like sleeping.
My heart, sputtering back to life and filling with emotions,
My senses heightened, feeding off your words and actions..
Alas! To be alive once again!
But, although I am alive, I am not hoping.
Contradictory sentence? No.
Worried that Hope brings Despair? No.
You will always come first regardless...
