Salvation IX

Peering at life through a keyhole,
You’re more refined than you’ve ever been before,
But you still have more wisdom and experience to acquire.
Trembling like a god,
Holding up half the sky to say
That you can’t do it on your own.
Just because you stumble and lose your way,
It doesn’t mean you’re lost forever.
Sometimes we all need a little help.
Compassion makes you chary.
Yet you still can see beyond the walls
They made their homes from their pasts many years ago.
Their torment overwhelms you.
It seems easier to give in to the mayhem you uncover,
But it’s not their pain you’re afraid of,
It’s your own.
And as frightening as that may be,
That desolation will make you stronger.
If you allow yourself to intuit the sorrow –
Encompass it –
It will make you more powerful than you can ever imagine.
It’s the most cogent gift to have,
To bear their agony without falling apart,
And resilient empathy is born from the most human power…
Hope.

My first Co-Blog Collaboration (Teaser)

Hello to my fallen angels! I am pleased to share with you all that blogging has benefitted me in so many ways, including making a new friend with a fellow WordPress blogger. I was Jason’s first follower on his blog. There was a time he felt discouraged and wanted to delete the remnants of his blog altogether. Yet I convinced him to keep noobdungeon going. I am really excited to see where this co-blog collaboration goes. It’s rare to find a kindred spirit with an open-mind so that when a disagreement ensues, a dispute won’t take place but instead, an exchange of knowledge and perspective. 

I always look forward to reading my stat page because my fallen angels make me feel alive. No one on Facebook or in my real life appreciates my work as much as you all do. It’s pleasant for me to see all your likes and comments for no one is obligated to do those things for me. I’ve been trying to be more social and less introverted. This project will help me get just a bit more out of my comfort zone. I’m not going to spoil the content of what it is that we’re going to be discussing as each episode takes place. On the bright side, I can say that this will be something very new and unusual for me. Hopefully, this experiment will prove to be something that a lot of people will come across. 

Noobdungeon(check out his intro post here) is much different than mine as far as what we blog about, but we both do it for the same reason. Jason is a great video game critic, which I consider to be really cool. I’ve done a few critic reviews on random tv shows and video games but he can easily be mistaken as a professional critic! His posts are unbiased which means he clearly points out the good and bad in any of the games he reviews. Jason even does regular giveaways for various video game merchandise! He’s very generous and insightful like that.

This is going to be something that neither of us has really done before, but I have a feeling this is going to be something that both of us will benefit and grow from. Maybe we’ll get feedback and input from others as well. And because of the seriousness and profound subject matter, we’ve agreed to make this as sophisticated and informative as possible. I’m siked!

Stay tuned! We’re currently in the early process of outlining this adventure, but I hope you all will participate – it should be really fun. I would like to think it will be revolutionary but it’s healthier to not place such high expectations on such a new project.

Thank you all for reading yet another one of my amazing posts. Have a wonderful day, my hyped fallen angels! To be continued…
