When I’m Low…

I hit the snooze button, over and over again. I snap and lash at my partner and my family. I eat a lot. Or not enough. I procrastinate. Then I beat myself up for being unproductive. I cry, a lot. I tell myself that I'm this and I'm that, only using the ugly words, of… Continue reading When I’m Low…

“Welcome, Rain” – Poem

It's just a little rain, It does not instil pain. So why not refrain, From these inane, Notions, That the rain, Equals the mundane? Or bane? Or the arcane? Or storms and hurricane? Or a wane? Or that the windowpane, Weeps? Oh, no; how inhumane? It needn't stain, Or drain, Our happiness. Enjoy the chain,… Continue reading “Welcome, Rain” – Poem

“There’s No Room” – Poem

There's no room to grow, Within these four walls. These hallowed halls, Ring too loudly Of the past.   There's no room to breathe, Among these toxic fumes, That have been festering, For years, Within the minds Of my family.   There's no room to heal, When the black clouds do grow, Casting a shadow… Continue reading “There’s No Room” – Poem

“You Know Nothing” – Poem

You don't know that character, From that classic book. You don't know about food, Or even how to cook.   You don't know the countries, That sit on our maps. You don't know the runners, That run all those laps.   You don't know what film That actor was in, Or ways to exercise And… Continue reading “You Know Nothing” – Poem
