The first principles
The most important dynamic in a relationship is trust
The most important way to convene a mutual trust is by communication
Our skill level is important in our effectiveness, and our affectivity in communication
Our integrity about our self-assessment is also crucial in the communication equation
Do we sacrifice our values for security?
We painfully drift through the day with hope we may have miscalculated but still we wait
Part of our intellect rejects our suspicions
Part of our intellect has faith in the glass half-full
But still we tread upon the uneven grounding in doubt
Wobbling around the cliff on a bluff of loose soil and gravel
The axiom of trust is arguably learned through trials of error
Persons with good role models stand to do better than most
The final challenge is dealing with ourselves
Have we mistaken ourselves for something we are not?
The delusion-fueled pride that is easier to see in somebody else is clear, yet we fail to see it in ourselves which can lead to a lifelong challenge for us
If we are not ourselves, than are we just a ghost of a persona we impersonate?
If we are not honest authentic beings, are we but hollow shells of an adopted person-hood?
The beginning point of meeting anyone worth befriending is someone whom will be themselves
This is not to criticize influences and artistic expression that emulates others
This is an honest expression of yourself as you relate to the world without the contrived and conscripted persona’s we sometimes use for some comedic value per se
We are agency’s of expression and not necessarily artists of expression
An intellectual and emotional war engaging
Two factions of a mind under assault
A minuscule war that devotes much of our sub-conscious psyche
Leaving only the residue of a parched intellect
Like pages turn yellow in the sun
Only the educated
Only the ethical
Only the duplicitous really know
The tricks to deal a narrative
Is it a straight tunnel, or one that is daft?
Do I believe myself?
Am I on the right track?
Talk yourself into a corner?
Talk yourself into the light?
All roads lead to where you are!
