Poem: Another One??!

Another One is gone too soon.
Another life cut devastatingly short.
With nothing but injustice upon injustice to show for it.

Life doesn’t just go on.
Forever marred by the pain
Of losing yet Another One.

Feedback request: “Poetic Wellness”

I’m flirting with the idea of merging my love of poetry with my career.

It’d be an expressive arts-based support group that uses poetry and compassionate discussion of life, mental health, and overall wellness.

Online. I need to find a good online platform, though.

Free, but with the opportunity to make value-based contributions.

And a % would go to a democratically selected charitable organization.

 

Your thoughts?

 

Would you (or people you know) be interested in participating?

Know of any platforms that could support group discussion and sharing?

Poem: “Don’t boogie down”

I don’t want to go low.

So low that I reach your level.

So low that I lose myself.

I don’t want to boogie down your way.

Or, hear what you have to say now.

Now

Now

Now that the dust has settled,

I’m so glad I didn’t boogie down your way.

Poem: “Bffs? I think not!!”

Who is this…?
Riding my coat tail
Won’t leave me alone
Must want me insane
Don’t speak my name

What is this…?
Bringing me to my knees
Pain all over me
Even hurts to breathe
I need a reprieve

Why is this…?
My lot in life
Over run with strife
Just can’t get right
All the fuss I fight

How did this…?
Come to be
That STRESS is here
Perturbing me
Hanging around….

But, it’s NO Bff to me!
