some people are in more pain than yourself.
you have the comfort of using hallucinagens for exploration.
there are those in desperation. hopeless. you are hopefull.
the hope you have, envelopes your entire being.
you would enter the void as a doorway -- walking beyond.
the drugs amplify that hope.

maybe, hallucinagens applify fear -- i'm not one to use needless drugs.
where is the talk of hope -- hope is not found in the drugs.
hope is found within the self.

i feel as if my ignorance of hallucinagens hinders my ability
to communicate or understand or even sympathize with ...
the discussion -- the talk -- here has been about drugs and
drug use. drug use is new ground to me. maybe to others as well.
i am not a drug user.
the talk here is off topic off on my off days.
i've got to weed through my own apathy in order to speak up here.
the discussion of drugs isn't necessarily welcoming to me.
the 'i could care less' attitude crops up when i read about people
and their exploration of hallucinagens.
i would speak in limmerick and singsong prose.
the nonsense of drugs is the nonsense of life.
do you see yet ? i have no experience where hallucinagens are concerned.
and i would rather not speak of drugs.
for all of life, is a delusion of the mind. a grand and wonderful
display of flesh enraptured with life -- the meaning and choice
found in existing, both intellectually and physically ...
and possibly spiritually.
my mind just went blank.
what a strange day.
