Omni Absurdum, By Brian37

Her legs weak

Her breath short

Her age a condition

No one escapes

 

Such independence

In shackles of time

Eating away slowly

At her body

 

And around me

Offers of comfort

From fictional friends

They'll pray for her

 

While real doctors

Do real work

To find cause

To extend her ride

 

He is watching

He loves her

With folded arms

While she struggles

 

"I can do this"

So says her brain

"I'm slowing down"

Says her body

 

And dear daddy

Thinks about priorities

Such as logos on money

Or in pledges

 

He thinks about politics

And who to put in office

Not about my mother

Or what he could prevent

 

It is my fault

Or her fault

Or Eve's fault

Or "free will"

 

To call him "all loving"

Is vomit inducing

A retched claim

Deserving of scorn

 

She gives and gives

And so to me

She is always better

Than lame deities

 

Omi absurdum

Holds no light

To the real love

My mother does bring

 

So if said claims

Were to be true

Fuck your god

A deadbeat jerk

Nice Brian.  Is she still

Nice Brian.  Is she still recovering?

 

Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.

Yea, she had more cheer in her voice today, but still sounds winded. It just sucks for her that her independent mind isn't matching up with the age of her body. And it certainly worries me watching her try to still do things that once she had no problems with. She'll be on oxygen for the next two weeks and they are getting her a portable one either today or tomorrow. She does sound happier today. That is something.

And especially now, when I hear about people's pet gods knowing my mother doesn't deserve this, and the only reason it is happening is because of health history and age, not some test, or punishment due to a magic dungeons and dragons battle. it fucking pisses me off hearing that shit now. Fuck any god claim that would suggest such a wonderful person deserves the watch of a deadbeat security guard who's only goal is to gain more fans. My mother is REAL and is certainly more deserving of love than the self centered prick people call a god.

If such a god were real, I would kick the bastard in the nuts.

There's no god to kick.

Relax Brian37.  Death is part of life and no one has lived more then one life time,  not ever! 

 

 I went through the same thing with my mother several years ago,  it is not easy and it was never intended to be.  My mother smoked  2 packs of ciggerettes a day for most of her adult life,   she died from conjestive heart failure (agrevated by cigerettes- no doubt).  She also had a medical degree and worked as an ICU unit {Intensive Care Unit} specialist for over 20 years.

 

My last conversations with mother involved discussions about her upcoming landmark 75th  birthday celebration.   I knew she wouldn't make it, no one else thought so either.  Yet it gave her a future to plan for.  Her attitude was in the right direction.  Her cognition was skewered in several different directions.    Her grandson stop to see her on his way FROM Augusta to Millinocket     on the same day she was taken from her room to dialysis treatment down the hallway, IN  Bangor.  She told me and several other people that day that  Joey stopped in to see her then TOOK her to Millinocket for dialysis and it was no use trying to disuade her from that  opinion.    

 

She was at the Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor,  one of the best in New England,  Millinocket where Joey lives is 130 miles round trip away and no one is ever shipped there for treatment from Bangor.   It' smore likely a teenage pregnant virgin was thrown on a donky for a 100 mile run to Bethlaham for no reason.

 

 I have no magic answer to your pain or frustration,  only that I have been there,  mother passed away in her sleep 2 months before age 75,  try not to let schock and angur overtake your rational side.  All things come to pass   weather we like it or not. 

  

Relax Brian37.  Death is part of life and no one has lived more then one life time,  not ever!

                  My post in #3 was screwed, big time.Can any mod help out?   the long spaces between some of the sentences where actually paragraphs,  at least intended.   This has happenened to me before  but this post is realy a lousy time to screw up. Help!!

 

 

                  Ken G.   &  Brian37  My mother claimed to be a good Catholic to the end,  But way back in the late '60s she told us all ( 7 children) not to let anyone prey for her if she were sick.   Did I mention she was an ICU specialist and ran into the creeps Ken G. wrote about on a daily bases---- for 20 years + ---- and figured out the value of preyer  20 years before the Templeton foundation.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)
