Suzy Peaches' Fruit Basket (Issue #11)


Hello my lovely readers,

I'm so sorry I have not been in touch for a couple of weeks now. I've been swamped with work.
Neways I'm back and I trust you are well. I think this week I'll draw our discussion closer to home. And when I say home I need in literally – HOME.

Home is not only where you live but also where your heart is. For me home includes absolutely everybody that affects me directly or indirectly as well as the people who affect those who I love directly or indirectly.
As you can see my net expands daily.

Now let’s tighten the reigns of that net…

What is your vision for your home? What did you think or should I say dream your life would be like?
Can it be compared to how it is today? Now think of the role you have played in the symbiosis.

To be honest I don't really have anything exceptional to say this week. I however will like to share my favourite poem with you. The Poison Tree by William Blake.

The Poison Tree

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright,
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine,

And into my garden stole,
When the night had veiled the pole.
In the morning, glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.


The poem talks about the consequences of unforgiveness. I can hear you ask "What has this got to do with me?" – The answer is simple: - The condition of your heart determines your productivity and could hinder you achieving your purpose. The bottom line is if you are happy with yourself and your relationships – You’ll be in a better place to start achieving your life goals and ambitions.

We all know the story of the prodigal son, may I suggest you read it again but this time consider the brother who didn’t leave. The brother who stay with his father – Can you now see how easy it is to justify unforgiveness?

Enough said. Enjoy your weekend.

Love always,

Suzy

Anger certainly eats away at your soul. There is no need for it, but sometimes you need time to forgive, afterall we are all human.

@Mona, how to pick a Nigerian woman up was hilarious.

loved the poem .. was off the hook. I found it particularly uncanny, as a few years back, I found myself writing something similar and I have only heard of 'The Poison Tree' for the first time today.

Now, I need to go find out all I can about this dude (rephrase that .. could I possibly be a genius in the making? .. lol). Thanks for the extra work Suzy ;P

Great Post
