love insanity

Standard

what is it when I see you

wondering how I ever could

how I never even though

but even as I see

you cannot see

I watch from a distance

and people say I am nuts

but I wonder just if

just maybe

if the courage I can build

wondering if you even know

you don’t even see

how I feel

now I wonder if

I should be committed

just for thinking

just for seeing

just for following

but I turn around

before I can give myself away

Clapping Seals

Standard

Clapping like seals

as he speaks

taking us away

from a cleaner world

with promises of jobs

that disappeared

of jobs

that no longer exist

jobs

that are not coming back

jobs

that no matter what

have already made their way out

promising our portion of the pie

what will happen to us

what will happen to the world

with the seals

clapping and clapping

with no care in the world

Life continues…

Standard

I sit here writing as my daughter’s birthday is in a few weeks and I think how her future is just beginning and looks so bright. I see what her potential is and I know she will be amazing in whatever she chooses to do. I then begin to think I about how my life is now and I think about how old I am getting. Sometimes it feels as if I have reached a point where there is nothing new for me to see or do, but it all changes when I look at her. I realize then at that moment my life is still new and I still have so much to see and do. I realize I am still a work in progress. Like a play that is still unfinished waiting for the next part to begin. Thank you sweetie for reminding me of my potential as you are realizing yours.

City

Standard

Once again I am inspired by the one word prompt CITY. Here is my poem:  City
City

rhythms that move you
sounds that shake you
crowds that make you scream
get inside
pressure all around
need silence
no where to be found
need space
crushing you to the pavement
people everywhere
looking for peace
looking for a getaway
only escape
is in your mind
