You, Yes You

You, Yes You

***********
I accept you
I will never judge you
I will never doubt you
I will never fear you
I will never hurt you
I will never feel threatened by you
I will never be jealous of you

Nor should you feel any of these emotions because of me too

I will never try to weaken you
I will never stop you
I will never attempt to break you
I will never blame you

I will never
Never
Never
Try to take your spirit for life or your name away from you

I will never steal your health
Peace
Joy
Or love

I will never attempt to take any of these actualities of grandeur away from you

I will never underestimate you
I will never lose faith in you
I believe in you

So please
Please
Stop worrying

Release the fear
Turn off the anxiety
It turns into river water
It rolls off your shoulders
Dissolving salt together with similes and metaphors
Drips off your fingers back into the Earth

The realization occurs

We do not need to compare our lives with one another anymore

The race ended long ago
Do less
Just be
More of you

Relief
Breathe
I give you permission to set yourself free

Hey you
Yes you

This is the truth
I just needed to take a few minutes to give it to you

Dear Carrie

Dear Carrie

Dear Carrie,
I had been meaning to write this letter to you
I saw a beautiful soul talking about bipolar
I think it was on the tele-radio something whatever
She looked a little familiar
But I never really cared what show, movie, band, or program the famous people came from
I just see a person that gets used over and over
Paid a ton to be abused
Forced to hide and lock their self up in a room
Until they get called that they need to take a limo over to the next viewing
Cameras flash
Stories fly
They come in droves
Quickly the copywriters lie
The stories fade
On the internet they finally come to die
And I wonder how anyone can do it?
And I wonder why the tabloids, media, and paparazzi have no heart
Little minds
Lack of conscience
False intuition
Dirty Money
Wasted time
Hmm…
Someone else is really never my interest
Never my concern
Never my business
Every time someone sings entertainment news to me

I
Always
Ask
“Why?”

I
Always
Ask
“Why?”

I hope that with all of my heart, body, and mind that you can finally feel the peace that I have been trying to send you
You deserve this feeling
At least for a second
It is not fair that those of us that live with this dis-ease never get to feel any of this
While the rest of the world steals love and they are drowning in it
Flaunting it
Hating it
Complaining about it
And constantly throwing it in our faces
And wondering why we don’t join them
They keep blaming us
I am so tired

I am
So
Tired.

I cannot believe you were one of the first ones to open up
I cannot thank you enough
I feel a little less shame
A little less blamed
A little less alone
A little less hated
I wish that I could write a letter to everyone in the world and try to send them the love that they deserve
However everyone says that that is my weakness

I care too much

And in 2016…

This is a weakness
But if you ask me it is a hell of a lot better than not caring at all
What the…?
A little nurture
A little comfort
I guess I’ll write it down on a vision board
Until someone finds the rest of the world a cure
And I will stay right here
I will be patiently waiting for it

So now is the part where I try to turn it all around
As if something good has come of this
I pray that tomorrow they are not dancing in the streets with light sticks
Reciting lines
Or buying tickets
Rather praising you for being an American girl
Heart on her sleeve
At one time she owned the world
And right now you are the queen of all the people just like you and me
You are our hero
You are our Universe
We all share that common strand of DNA that is embedded deep into our souls

I take comfort in knowing that you are now okay with everything and that maybe now everyone can get through this wall that was built around people like you and I
You took down that wall
Now all we have to do
Is walk through it

Yes.

Think about this.

Now all we have to do is walk through it.

I hope you feel accepted
I hope you forgive yourself
I pray that you feel free
I pray that you are okay with you

You have always been enough for me.
You have always been enough for those of us that understand what you went through
Please keep guiding us
And know that we are all supporting you
God speed kid
Continue to lead us
And we will continue to thrive

Your fire
Your spirit
It has never been more alive

Dear Carrie,
I had been meaning to write this letter to you
Because of your strength and courage
Our fight will be over soon

Dear Gratitude

Dear Gratitude

Dear
Gratitude

I am _______ ________.
I thought that maybe I should write you

Everything is okay
I simply
Just
Do not know what else to do

Overall I think I am a good person
Of course at one time I was a fool

Maybe you could introduce me to an Angel
One that can help me start anew
One that can keep me from falling back into my clouded thoughts
And help me color in the rest sky blue

I am thinking way ahead of myself again
I can stay on the ground
I can keep pushing through
I would not want to skip too many steps
Because our hearts are meant to be in tune

Sometimes patience feels like the end of the world
I have become so complacent

On the upside
I still keep finding words
And I keep praying that you can relate to them

Whenever I feel like I am coming apart and start to take off from the earth

I look down at the ground
And imagine myself surrounded by soft sounds
And attaching to the dirt with my roots

Dear Gratitude

Can you hear me

I think

I need you too

3rd Person Omniscient

3rd Person Omniscient

I have learned to see every situation from afar
With this new view I do not judge
Although every choice that I make still comes from how I would feel deep inside
I do not take anything to heart
I will no longer waste my time and energy picking every word everyone else says apart

We need less “genius” ideas
We need less mess

Less hypothesis’ & theory about truth
We need less news
We need less talking
Less thinking

No more carrots on a string

Hanging off a stick

Connected to a fool.

The horse is not amused.

Less about this person’s opinion on that person’s research that was paid for by a company owned by the owners of the product that cut their work force by 60% in order to make the CEO 6000% on stocks on a product that we can not even use.

Because it is the most intelligent piece of garbage ever produced.

Bless you. 🙂

It was outdated when I took it out of the package.

It always confused me that
Everyone just gets mad and figures out a way to get through it.

I’d like to scan every credit card I have ever had
Figure out which products stopped working

Send them all back
I am sending them all back

However I decided to write this love letter to you
Yes you
(Everything from the stock ticker through computers)
It is a love letter about the truth
I wrote it for you

I have learned to see every situation from afar
With this new view I do not judge
Although every choice that I make still comes from how I would feel deep inside
I do not take anything to heart
I will no longer waste my time and energy picking every word everyone else says apart
Someone needed to draw the line
I am simply able to see every product as something that is helping society, hurting society, or just a complete waste of time.

Dear Old School Commercialization
&
All that is sublime

This is a love letter from your heart to your mind

Won’t you be mine?

Sincerely,
Wasted Time
Joseph S. Fusaro. 7 November 2016.

Believe In Me (I Believe In You)

Believe In Me (I Believe In You)

Sometimes I need to remind myself that I have so much time left.

I deserve joy right now.

 

I deserve to feel peace, ease, and a little bit of humble pride right now.

 

I deserve every blessing that I have been given or I would have never received it

It is a part of something Divine.

I am grateful.

I am compassion and understanding combined.

I will continue to regive this.

 

Pass what I have learned on to someone that needs it.

I believe in me.

I believe in my story.

I believe in my abilities.

I believe in my writing.

I believe in everything I do.

I believe that I am helping hundreds of millions of people.

I will refuse to stop until the number is in the billions.

 

I believe in my attitude towards life.

I believe in my relationships with people.

I believe in my leadership.

I believe in my talents.

I believe in my passion.

I believe in my voice.

I believe in humanity.

I believe in everything that is Good in this world.

I believe in all that is based on hope

Faith

And truth

 
I believe.

I believe.

I believe.

 
More than anything

I believe that you can do anything that you put your mind to.

 
Yes

I promise

I will always believe in you.

Affirmations to Dissolve Depression

Affirmations to Dissolve Depression

My aura is uplifting.
My cells are uplifted.
My DNA uplifts me.
I keep focused
I am motivated
Nature lives just to heal me

Life is not a mystery
It is a path
I walk along
I may fall
But I jump right up
Brush myself off
Smile

I move on.

I never let 1 day break me
It is one fraction of the love that fulfills the bulk of my story
My heart is full
My surroundings feel okay but I feel like sometimes they will never fully understand me

I wake every day
Thank you to all that is Good in this world
It is you that has saved me
Your smile
Your prayer
Your letter in the mail

You have saved me
Because of you I decided that maybe I should save me

You believed in me when nobody else would take me

I have nothing physical to give you except that I am the most loyal person you will ever know

Maybe I can try to be there a little more
It is hard
But I am trying

Yes I know.

I do not forget a friend
I will keep this open
Even if we do not speak for 10
20 years
Or what may feel like eternity

If you come crawling up my yard at age 75 without a dollar
A home
A love of your own

I promise to let you in
Get you dressed
A warm meal
A cup of tea
And we can find a way to refill all of the direction you lost
All the plans you gave up on
We can tether you back to hope

No one deserves to be alone

Love everyone
Love yourself
You will not feel alone

If you need to talk
If you need a hand
If you need anything
If you ever need anything

It is the year Two Thousand and Sixteen
&
There are infinite ways to get through to my phone
