You should know…. #Tanka #Poem

You’re partly to blame
It’s been over a decade
I’m changing my ways

Activated membership
With a promise not to quit

Moving Forward ~ #Poem


Sometimes you have to start over
To appreciate what you once had
In order to get everything back
While learning to move boulders

Resist temptations of let’s pretend
Sweep expectations under the rug
Stuff fears in the closet with a shove
Organize thoughts into neat little bins

Although they’re my burdens to carry
I’d rather leave em dead and buried
To deal with hauntings over my shoulder
As a soldier, constantly moving forward

Never really looking ahead, nor back
Caught by surprise, at the time of attack
Fighting the panic cause I’ll handle it
With support & dedication that never quits

Let’s hope for…

The individual courage
To drive back the darkness
That allows the hate to flourish
In the hearts of empathetic carcass’s

The human connections
To bring us back to the basics
That built a strong nation on diversity
In the land of dreams, which made us famous

The new representatives
To restore humanity and decency
That eradicates the leading narcissist
In overwhelming counts never before seen
