Such Delights

Neon lights

Starry nights

pretty sights

such delights

Author's Notes/Comments: 

just used the word neon in words with friends and this little ditty came to me...neon lights are cool aren't they?

PTSD

Who hit replay

Shut it off

No not today

Life can be rough

Enough is enough

 

The past is passed

so why must it last

This loop in my head

I constantly dread

 

Who hit replay

Shut it off

No not today

Life can be rough

Enough is enough

 

PTSD is not for me

PTSD must cease to be

Got to get it out of my head

These thoughts that I have come to dread

keep playing over inside my head

 

Who hit replay

Shut it off

No not today

Life can be rough

Enough is enough

Author's Notes/Comments: 

PTSD...we all have it in our own way...we need to stop letting it get the best of us...so much time wasted on things that cannot be changed and need to be forgotten...permanently erased...learn whatever lessons from it and move on and keep living and learning...easier said than done but thoughts to ponder nonetheless...you are not alone. Keep dreaming, keep hoping, keep living life to the fullest...take nothing for granted....be greatful...Focus on the positive.Peace.

We Take Too Much for Granted

We take too much for granted

Count the blessings that you have

Be greatful that you have them

and pray that they will last

At the Circus Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Red Unit

 

I worked at the circus a week or two

selling programs and lights then scooped sno-cones too

I didn't know til the very last day

whether I would go or stay

waited too long to rent a room on the train

that was the reason I remained

just graduated from high school

running away with the circus sounded cool

Author's Notes/Comments: 

WPOM poetry prompt...write a poem about the circus....mine is a true story...a friend of mine from HS ended up going with the circus and she worked there for years...I was not sure if I was going or not til the last minute but I waited too long to rent a room on the train so there was no more space left so I did not go...I told my mom if I don't come home tonite that means I went with the circus...drove that poor woman crazy sometimes...with the crazy stuff I would do...

Nothing

Nothing matters

Nothing really matters

Nothing really matters to me

You're never really doing nothing

cuz you're always doing something

breathing

blinking

thinking

eating

drinking

feeling

seeing

hearing

sitting

laying

standing

walking

skipping

tripping

falling

teaching

learning

Nothing really is something....isn't it?

Invisible Thoughts

An invisible hand 

writing invisible words 

on an invisible page

An invisible ear

listens but does it hear

what it is trying to say

An invisible brain

gathering invisible thoughts

that seem to drift away

Author's Notes/Comments: 

WPOM poetry prompt...write a poem about an invisible hand writing

How Is One Supposed to Dream

Don't ever say anything 

will always be out of reach

How is one supposed to dream

if that is what you preach
