Except For Love – The Prisoner – A Reflection

These little reflections Except For Love and The Prisoner were authored by Akiane kramarik between the ages of 7-11 in her book titled My Dream Is Bigger Than I – Memories of Tomorrow – Part Six Page 287 — “You will need your own copy of this book to view the full text of this poem.  I limit quotes for the purpose of discussion and to follow copyright guidelines that allows for limited quotes.”

The featured image I choose for this reflection is from my latest play list titled “Pumpkin Avant-Gourd Pumpkin” — A totally crazy silly show about pumpkins for halloween…You know folks from Ireland and the UK do not know what to do with pumpkins…My son who is twelve now is too cool to paint pumpkins…So I decided to have a little fun and came up with my own very silly playlist which I will share at the end of this reflection…In Except For Love Akiane writes…”Soon you will be gone. And perhaps no one will notice, except for love itself.” I left out a portion of that reflection as part of building the mystery that is Akiane Kramarik and to encourage my readers to purchase your own copy of Akiane’s amazing book of prose…In The Prisoner Akiane writes…”Along with snow falling on its own shadow I will become the very owner of my prison”…I left out a portion of that reflection as well…Wow what Akiane writes is full of wisdom that is eternal in nature…When it comes to Love many fall prey to false love and toxic relationships in both business and personal matters…Many have experienced toxic work environments which can add to stress levels and wreak havoc in the lives of many a worker…The same is true in personal relationships…Sadly toxic relationships do more harm than good be it in the work place or at home or on the homestead…Sadly the ones who truly do love and care about us are often ones we do not appreciate enough until they are dead and gone…Sadly too what Akiane writes in The Prisoner is very true…Many do become prisoners of their own minds…This phenomenon of becoming a prisoner of your own mind often happens in unhealthy toxic abusive relationships particularly in domestic violence and domestic abuse stories and cases…Many partners develop Stockholm syndrome which is a condition in which hostages develop a psychological alliance with their captors…This goes on a lot in domestic violence and domestic abuse situations…This phenomenon of becoming a prisoner of your own mind happens in business too in the form of legal hostages using contracts to hold legal hostage those who are bound by such contracts…Marriage is a legally binding contract which can be fantastic if the couple are healthy and good for each other…However, these marriage contracts bind many an unwary couple in a diabolical snare and dance that is not good and sadly many feel stuck and do get stuck in many a bad show or bad marriage…The laws are often hostile towards marriages particularly bad marriages making it impossible at times for unhealthy and unhappy couples to part ways…Divorce is necessary and recommended when couples are not happy…Sadly divorce can be difficult to obtain and many organized religions frown upon divorce and by so doing are complicit in the abuse of couples ensnared in toxic bad marriages…I hear it a lot in my line of work unhappy couples who cannot get their locks changed for safety due to hostile laws that aid and abet abusive marriages and are as such complicit in domestic violence cases that are best solved by making it easier not harder for couples to divorce and part ways…The way that marriage is set up these days I have decided I never want to wear a stupid engagement ring and or wedding ring…To me the ring is a symbol of a trap a bird cage and I do not care for modern bird cage marriage…No offense intended to the many happy and successful couples out there…I view modern marriage as nothing but a wild party a money pit a bad show of stupid flouncy dresses and expensive rings often with no real commitment that lasts…Many a lavish marriage ends up in divorce…I would not want to get trapped in the money pit horse and carriage bad show of modern marriage…I would tell couples today who are very much in love to use their money to buy a modest home and to be not afraid to have children…Children are our future our legacy for without children to procreate and propagate our lineages then whole tribes and lineages go extinct…Many lineages have gone extinct already as evidenced by the many ghost towns in Japan and Europe and other parts of the world…I have talked to enough divorce attorney’s who are jaded from years of negotiating and mediating bitter divorce battles over property and children…The children always suffer too when couples break up…Sadly break ups are often better for all parties involved if the relationship is toxic abusive and unhealthy…As a thank you for reading this reflection enjoy my latest seriously silly and purposely stupid playlist titled “Pumpkin Avant-Gourd Pumpkin”—Life is too short and we cannot take ourselves seriously all the time…I also include my Halloweenie stuff playlist…
