Why.

I blog too little lately
because I haven't enough time
energy
effort
heart.

Which makes me wonder why I blog at all
because I could always fill time
in other ways
real ways
always.

Still, I return to fill not time but minds
not space but souls
bodies
because people matter
even though, some days,
I hate us all.

I blog for the fatties!
the chronically ill, the dissatisfied
for the stubborn bodies that refuse to respond
to mindful
willful
relentless
useless
adherence to spoon-fed, corn-fed, never-dead
lies.

I blog for the primals!
the paleos already freed
but also dissatisfied
always alone
because no one still bound can understand.

Do they want to understand?

I blog to break free!
You.
Us.
Me.

Love this post. I know it came from frustration, but it's powerful. And I didn't know you were a poet, too!

Tamara - if you posted once a year, it would be worth it. Thanks for the continued inspiration.

LOL, Jennifer...I suspect REAL poets might take issue with that! ;)

And...awww, thanks all. You make me want to write more. Really. Thanks.
