Poem: The Trip

The Trip

Anxious

going far away

All packed

been since yesterday

Nervous

feels like I forgot

To pack

things I need a lot

Leaving

heading on my way

Relax

nothing more to say

Poem: Multitasking One Thing at a Time

Multitasking One Thing at a Time

I am a multitasker, been so since my teens.

It was hard at first, but waitress must-have it seems.

This talent came in handy, when job later changed,

Did not ask, juggled tasks, no matter how arranged.

One day I got married and had a kid, then two.

Working still, running the house, much I had to do.

Now you’d think this talent would make me supermom,

But that’s not how it works, at everything I’d bomb.

If you have multitasked, you may know what I mean

When there is too much to do, time turns very lean.

I had to make a change, or rest I’d never get

I stopped trying so hard, and now no longer fret.

I still will multitask, but do them one by one.

Now can even enjoy time set aside for fun.

It’s still a bit hard to focus on just one thing

But when I do, yahoo, to peace and calm I cling.

Poem: Embers of Passion

Embers of Passion

embers burning, deep inside

embers burn, fire must hide

gurgling like hot lava deep

find a way, passion to keep

 –

feelings tied up, they’re not free

pressures pressing upon me

care too much, must learn to cope

dousing truth’s embers with hope

 –

Turn off news. don’t like to hear!

Fate of this world I hold dear.

Terrible news drives me mad!

Do not focus, on the bad.

 –

hope facade, but feelings true

can’t control what others do

learn to cope, be in control

fire burning, play a role

 –

proactively setting course

above reproach, no remorse

work hard, keep embers alive

control environs I strive

 –

Do not tell me what to do.

How I should act, who are you?

Don’t criticize my actions.

Look at own imperfections.

 –

above reproach, actions take

a life of perfections make

not because I am so great

but for rebukes to abate

 –

passions bound, will not set free

learned to cope with being me

care too much, need close my eyes

hiding where fantasm lies.

Poem: A Bully’s Plea

A Bully’s Plea

Bullies are people too

Looking for help from you

They don’t know how to ask

Instead. . . they kick your ass

 –

Attention now is found

Let’s go another round

Your too pretty, or smart

Your fault this trouble start

 –

If you’d only listened

Instead you had questioned

Fighting is not intent

Before could stop fist sent

 –

Understanding I seek

Give me my way you freak!

Pow! Frustrations released

Un-quietude decreased

 –

I don’t want to hurt you

Don’t you know I had to?

If you only listened

Instead you had questioned
