Play possum, feeding not dark fears As they spiral inwards Choose bliss instead, that love endears Propelling us upwards Transcend fear and desire For love and light, aspire Pure innocence afire We’re awesome Play possum 23-October-2021 Quietus Pick-A-Title, Vol 26 - Poetry Contest Sponsor: Edward Ibeh

What a singularly unique image of "playing possum" to transcend negative energy Seeker. Every action in your Quietus stems from choice and taking responsibility for "bliss" and enduring love. Enjoyed this very much. Congratulations and blessings of bliss to you!

Our lives are of our own choosing, but too many refuse to take the blame. Very well expressed, Seeker.

It is sad that people do not realize you can "choose bliss" so this meant everything "Choose bliss instead, that love endears " Wow!
