Apathy.

I walk the earth, caring for none. Travelling by stealth at night, avoiding the sun
hand.

You pity me, that’s just grand

Wandering your world at will,

Hospitals and morgues I am happy to fill.

No feelings for you pitiful lives.

Your problems mean less than a bag of knives.

I spoil your days with bad news,

Cancer, dementia and murderous baby blues.

I am the dead look in a prostitute’s eyes,

The funeral of each soldier that dies.

I am the bomb, the bullet and grenade.

The million dollar deal on which someone will renege .

I am the loss of innocent child’s limbs.

I am the suicide bomber’s blinding belief.

I am this world’s broken, dieing of grief.

I am the filth you fear so much

The sleaze and the open legs you dare not touch.

I am the disease that stalks you at night

The slash of a knife in a drunken fight.

Your worst, greatest and last no hope

The the scabby hands that grope.

Around in your homes, schools and playground.

I am all that is your worst nightmare

I am the wrongs that you have no intention to repair.

I am Apathy.

It only takes a few good men to do nothing and evil will win.

The last I can write of Gilgamesh.

Back in June I wrote ”As I am nearing the end of my account of my feelings and experiences at The Silent Eye Spring Workshop I find I want to linger with the memories and stop time.

I had joined the Silent Eye Work Shop back in April to learn what I could about Gilgamesh and his quest for immortality. In fact I learned a lot about myself and I am still learning.

I met some amazing people who by their example and knowledge taught me so mugh. It is strange that these beautiful people who I hardly knew, brought me to tears of sadness and beautiful joy. I feel so privileged to have been included I felt safe and, yes even loved.

I had previously been on a weekend with the Silent Eye last December which had also been a revelation. Sadly and not for want of trying I hoped to join them all in September and December this year but the fates decided that was not to be.

Going back to Gilgamesh I wrote at length about my experiences of that weekend. Yet as I said I just could not write about the end of that weekend…… I still cannot, not because I am not capable or I can not remember, no because I feel I have not finished learning from it . I want to keep it in my heart and let the lessons I learned grow.

I am going to do my best to attend the April workshop in Derbyshire again for

The Silent Eye Annual Workshop 2020

Great Hucklow, Derbyshire

17-19 April 2020

Where Beauty Sleeps

I am hoping the fates will smile on me and help me accomplish this new part of my journey.

So for now Gilgamesh sleeps in my heart.
