I saw this on Facebook and really felt the need to share it.
I have NEVER seen a more perfect poem, written in the saddest way.
“I destroy homes, tear families… apart – take your children, and that’s just the start.
I’m more costly than diamonds, more costly than gold – the sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
And if you need me, remember I’m easily found.
I live all around you, in schools and in town.
I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door.
My power is awesome – try me you’ll see.
But if you do, you may never break free.
Just try me once and I might let you go, but try me twice, and I’ll own your soul.
When I possess you, you’ll steal and you’ll lie.
You’ll do what you have too just to get high.
The crimes you’ll commit, for my narcotic charms, will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms.
You’ll lie to your mother; you’ll steal from your dad.
When you see their tears, you should feel sad.
But you’ll forget your morals and how you were raised.
I’ll be your conscience, I’ll teach you my ways.
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate from friends.
I’ll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I’ll be with you always, right by your side.
You’ll give up everything – your family, your home, your friends, your money, then you’ll be alone.
I’ll take and I’ll take, till you have nothing more to give.
When I’m finished with you you’ll be lucky to live.
If you try me be warned this is no game.
If given the chance, I’ll drive you insane.
I’ll ravish your body, I’ll control your mind.
I’ll own you completely; your soul will be mine.
The nightmares I’ll give you while lying in bed.
The voices you’ll hear from inside your head.
The sweats, the shakes, the visions you’ll see.
I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.
But then it’s too late, and you’ll know in your heart, that you are mine, and we shall not part.
You’ll regret that you tried me, they always do.
But you came to me, not I to you.
You knew this would happen.
Many times you were told, but you challenged my power, and chose to be bold.
You could have said no, and just walked away.
If you could live that day over, now what would you say?
I’ll be your master; you will be my slave.
I’ll even go with you, when you go to your grave.
Now that you have met me, what will you do?
Will you try me or not?
It’s all up to you.
I can bring you more misery than words can tell.
Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell.”
“TO OUR NEW NEIGHBORS FROM BOOM-BOOM, NEXT DOOR!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Next Door Guy!” 29 Dec 2018 (Saturday)
We’ve got us new neighbors! Corner o’ 5th AND JUNE,
On THE NORTH SIDE, Honey! Look! There’s a raccoon!
Who’s gonna be checkin’ – on-these-neighbors – REAL SOON!
Checkin’-up – pretty carefully! Eye-ing that RED VA-ROOM!
That is: The-red-vehicle-“they”-brought (12/28/18) and, perhaps, by noon,
Since-right-now-IT’S FRIDAY!* They’ll-have-checked-each-and-every-room,
Of their unique, somewhat-new-home – IS-IT-HAUNTED? Do ghosts loom?
Here-and-there? Whispering – quietly!? words of doom!?
And pointing – to-THAT-NEXT-DOOR-POET!? with-his-rake-and-broom?
Who lives ACROSS THE ALLEYWAY!? Does-he-live – in a tomb?
Which ALSO – faces Highway 118 – “The-Highway of-certain-GLOOM?”
Where cars – keep going by – Are they -looking for the GOON,
The “poet care-taker?” who’s-really-a-CARTOON?
Who’s hoping – for The Neighbors – to wake up – from their swoon?
Into THIS – 5th-Dimensional HALLOWED BLOOD-filled-MOON?
[NO! Don’t be SILLY!]
NO! THERE ARE NO SPIRITS! There’s just-a-nice balloon –
Headed caretaking gardener – who sometimes plays The Loon!
“WELCOME!” say the DAVISes -Sam-Kathy-&-J-prophet-of-Dune,
Who-ALL offer-YOU this WELCOME MAT! & declare: “There’ll-be-NO-ruin!”
Alpine City doth endure; it’s-an eternal womb,
Which-will-comfort-and-protect-you! Just-ask “Jay,” who is “BOOM-BOOM!”
His Sweetie lives in Australia – and he’s her artist groom!
Question of The Day: Should this poem be given to the next door neighbors? and IF so – When? How? Who knows! It’s UP TO YOU, Gentle Readers! Is it TOO CREEPY! Is it TOO EERIE!? Do they/him/her/? need time to adjust? to acclimate? to “get used to” Mr. Lawnmower Man?! Mmm? * – this is being typed out on Saturday (12/29/18)
“The best way to overcome undesirable or negative thoughts and feelings is to cultivate the positive ones.”
“A mental image gives you a framework upon which to work. It is like the drawing of the architect, or the map of the explorer. Think over this for a few moments until you get the idea firmly fixed in your mind.”
“The presence of an active, energetic, successful man, or set of men, in a place, will permeate the place with positive vibrations that will stimulate all who abide there.”
“The use of the will as the projector of mentative currents is the real base of all mental magic.”
“The mind has been likened to a piece of paper that has been folded. Ever afterwards it has a tendency to fold in the same crease–unless we make a new crease or fold, when it will follow the last lines.”
“Nothing can prevent your picture from coming into concrete form except the same power which gave it birth – yourself.”
“Everyone visualizes whether he knows it or not. Visualizing is the great secret of success.”
“We all possess more power and greater possibilities than we realize, and visualizing is one of the greatest of these powers.”
“What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.”
“The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit. And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care. And let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings.”
“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
“What you are is what you have been. Who you will be is what you do now.”
“The Law of Attraction states that whatever you focus on, think about, read about, and talk about intensely, you’re going to attract more of into your life.”
“Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.”
“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviours. Keep your behaviours positive, because your behaviours become your habits. Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.”
“Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.”
“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks he becomes.”
“We often become what we believe ourselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. When I believe I can, I acquire the ability to do it, even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.”
“The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that like attracts like. Consequently, the mental attitude will invariably attract such conditions as to correspond to its nature”
“There is no limit to what this law can do for you; dare to believe in your own ideal; think of the ideal as an already accomplished fact.”
“To acquire love, fill yourself up with it until you become a magnet.”
“The vibrations of mental forces are the finest and consequently the most powerful in existence”
“Any idea, plan or purpose may be placed in the mind though repetition of thought.”
“Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.”
“The vast majority of people are born, grow up, struggle, and go through life in misery and failure, not realizing that it would be just as easy to switch over and get exactly what they want out of life, not recognizing that the mind attracts the thing it dwells upon.”
“Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.”
“Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.”
“Every person who has been moved by genuine love, knows that it leaves enduring traces upon the human heart”
“The man who succeeds must always in mind or imagination live, move, think, and act as if he had gained that success, or he never will gain it.”
“Fear is but another name for lack of power to control our minds, or, in other words, to control the kind of thought we think or put out.”
“The arrow always tipped with ill nature and sarcasm is deadliest to him who sends it.”
“Our thought is the unseen magnet, ever attracting its correspondence in things seen and tangible.”
“Gratitude is an attitude that hooks us up to our source of supply. And the more grateful you are, the closer you become to your maker, to the architect of the universe, to the spiritual core of your being. It’s a phenomenal lesson.”
“If you’re thinking of debt, that’s what you’re going to attract.”
“Let’s start with what we can be thankful for, and get our mind into that vibration, and then watch the good that starts to come, because one thought leads to another thought.”
“Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.”
“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”
“If you would take, you must first give, this is the beginning of intelligence.”
“The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own.”
“To see things in the seed, that is genius.”
“Great indeed is the sublimity of the Creative, to which all beings owe their beginning and which permeates all heaven.”
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
“It’s really important that you feel good. Because this feeling good is what goes out as a signal into the universe and starts to attract more of itself to you. So the more you can feel good, the more you will attract the things that help you feel good and that will keep bringing you up higher and higher.”
“As soon as you start to feel differently about what you already have, you will start to attract more of the good things, more of the things you can be grateful for.”
“Thoughts are sending out that magnetic signal that is drawing the parallel back to you”
“You can serve God and man in no more effective way than by getting rich; that is, if you get rich by the creative method and not by the competitive one.”
“Thought is the creative power, or the impelling force which causes the creative power to act; thinking in a Certain Way will bring riches to you, but you must not rely upon thought alone, paying no attention to personal action. That is the rock upon which many otherwise scientific metaphysical thinkers meet shipwreck–the failure to connect thought with personal action.”
“You are to become a creator, not a competitor; you are going to get what you want, but in such a way that when you get it every other man will have more than he has now.” –
“Many people who order their lives rightly in all other ways, are kept in poverty by their lack of gratitude”
“The grateful mind is constantly fixated upon the best. Therefore it tends to become the best. It takes the form or character from the best, and will receive the best.”
“By thought, the thing you want is brought to you. By action, you receive it”
“Give every man more in use value than you take from him in cash value; then you are adding to the life of the world by every business transaction”
“The more gratefully we fix our minds on the Supreme when good things come to us, the more good things we will receive, and the more rapidly they will come; and the reason simply is that the mental attitude of gratitude draws the mind into closer touch with the source from which the blessings come.”
Knowing exactly what you want is by far one of the most important and powerful steps to law of attraction success. Maybe you want a car, vacation, more money, meet someone, solve something, new job, new business, your perfect partner, an idea that will change the world.
Many people have a deep desire to improve their life; however, some never take the time to clearly define it. Without a destination, how do you know where you are going? Once you are clear about what you want, the universe will begin to move it towards you.
If you are unclear as to what you want, ask yourself a few questions like: “How do I want my life to be?” “How much money do I want to make?” “How will I spend my free time?” “What do I want out of life?” Ask yourself expecting the answer.
This has to be something that you truly desire. If it is something big, then you must be committed to making it a reality no matter how much time or how little time it might take. If it’s something smaller then you still have to keep going until you make it a reality.
If you want something amazing then you should have a keen pulsating desire for something great in your life. Not something you think would be nice to have. This is essential for your success in law of attraction success.
With smaller stuff you don’t need to have such a strong desire for it… because the smaller stuff is much easier to conceive as possible and even probable.
Any part of your life that you would like to improve or change, ask yourself questions to determine what you really want. Take the time to really determine your desire and do not move to number 2 until you have done so.
The next step is to look ahead in time with your mind and experience it with effective visualization. Take notice of how it feels; notice how happy you are with yourself for manifesting it. Go to that moment and be there.
Feel grateful that you have what you want in your life. Feel grateful that you proved to yourself that you can create and design your life.
Notice that it did not take too long or too little to manifest, it was perfect timing.
See how it came into your life, you’re just using your imagination so it could’ve come in any way as it’s just one of the possible ways and doesn’t have to be the way… Feel how it all just fell into place. Feel how real and how right it feels that you declared your desire and then got it and how it just now feels part of your life experience.
Go through all of the feelings and emotions you have now that you truly have it. Remind yourself how it felt the day you got it. What a sense of accomplishment that was. How great it made you feel.
Stay right at this moment until you finally feel that you have what you desire.
When you’ve felt that you’ve manifested what you want in your mind then you can move to step 3.
This can take as little as 10 minutes or you can do this as long as you want. The point is to do it until you have felt the emotions related to your desire.
This next step will not make sense or work until step 2 is complete.
Now consider, after you’ve manifested what you desire in your mind, does this actually need to become a reality?
I want your thoughts to really marinate in this question because what you want has just become real to you.
Do you still really need it? Of course you would like it, but you don’t need it. Can you feel why not?
What you should be thinking and feeling is something along the lines of, “this is going to happen at the right time and in the right way. It is going to happen when it’s best for me.”
The feeling is very powerful and it creates a belief that you WILL manifest what you desire. Do not move on until you get experience it.
If you’re having trouble I would suggest moving back to step 2.
When you have that feeling you have activated a powerful part of the law of attraction as you are both attached to your dream and detached from it at exactly the same time.
This demonstrates abundance to the universe as well as showing your subconscious mind your desires.
4. Begin taking the necessary actions in order to bring your desire into reality. If you’re looking to find the perfect partner, you might start looking at people who pass you by.
If your desire is to get rich, you might start evaluating all of your options for making money and settling on a strategy that will get you the best return on your investment and effort.
Every desire you wish to manifest, fill your mind with research on the subject and become an expert in it. You can have whatever you wish to have with your dominating thoughts and focus. You can manifest without needing or wanting and doing so in a relaxed and detached yet very focused way. That is how you can create what you really want.
Work diligently on your goal and keep your eyes open expecting manufactured coincidences to ‘just happen.’
When a coincidence eventually does show up, gratefully accept it. Pretty soon, your confidence and belief in your ability to manifest will grow stronger.
The final step for law of attraction success is to keep going until the reality in your mind has manifested itself into everyone else’s reality too. You have to make the choice to keep going. If at any point you lose belief in your ability just repeat this to yourself in order to regain focus:
“If it hasn’t happened yet then it’s not supposed to or I’ve missed something. Let’s take a look and see if I missed anything.”
“After all, it WILL happen at the best time in the best way for me.”
I’ve used this countless times in order to continue moving forward.
Be aware of your feelings and doubtful thinking. Do not force these doubts out of your mind. Just see them for what they are, “useless and destructive at getting you what you want.”
You can take complete advantage of the law of attraction and make it work for you instead of against you. Don’t be afraid to manifest something bigger and better too… always be open for a greater manifestation.
Have you ever asked yourself, “How do I make sure I never give up on my dream?”
The answer is that you cannot give up on something that has become real to you. So make it real to you and make your dreams come true.
