Every act of creation is first an act of destruction. –Pablo Picasso

I don’t need to be
affirmed, I need to
be condemned,
so the worn, abandoned, decrepit old
building of my self
can be cleared out
of the way.

I don’t require healing,
I require renewal,
like a seed before it can grow
and bear life
has to fall
to the ground and

I don’t want another chance,
I want to reach back
all the way
to the beginning, where it
all began, and
strangle the serpent
whose venomous soul poisons the heart
of the world.

I don’t plan to change the course of the game,
I plan to remove the board
out from under the surface of the world,
so something new may
play out,
so that next time there will be no
thought of the last time,
nor even the notion of
what was, or is, and
I will be changed
for good.

Inspired by Fabian Kruse‘s #Trust30 prompt, Divine Idea:

Imitation is Suicide. Insist on yourself; never imitate. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Write down in which areas of your life you have to overcome these suicidal tendencies of imitation, and how you can transform them into a newborn you – one that doesn’t hide its uniqueness, but thrives on it. There is a “divine idea which each of us represents” – which is yours?
