When It Gets Tough by James Lott Jr

I felt weird.

I felt strange.

I didn’t know what was happening to me.

I got scared.

I tried to stay calm.

It was getting the best of me.

It was happening.

There was nothing I could do to stop it.

It was consuming me.

The diagnosis was in.

I had to stop everything immediately.

Immediately

Everything.

Until further notice.

No date.

And so it began.

The journey I will never forget.

The feeling and non feeling I will never forget.

This wasn’t happening TO me.

It was borne out of ME.

It was time to correct it.

And time to correct me.

When it gets tough.

You have to be tougher.

When It get tough.

You have to look inward.

The Lost Days of February 29th- 31st

 

Image result for leap year quote feb 29th

 

It feels like time travel.

We are here, then we are there.

The month swallows up days like candy.

Suddenly its 3 days later in 1 days time

Its like magic.

Why isn’t there those 3 days?

Did they do something bad?

Except Feb 29th gets to come out and play every 4 years!

Its like we are trying to get to spring faster

We are tired of the winter

We close our eyes and March is here! 

I will never understand

Why February is so short

OR

are the others months too long

Either way I need to live for today!

A Poem for February by James Lott Jr.

 

A Poem for February

its still icey there

Its nice and warm here

We are in the middle of time

Next month brings such promise of rebirth and renewal

I stand in excitement until then

But I need to enjoy February

For what it is

The shortest month of the year

Black History Month

Presidents month

My sisters birthday month

And treat it with respect

Each day that arrives.

JLJ Poetry: What I Want!

Image result for new year motivational quotes

Hello New year

This is what i want.

Lots of laughs

And not at my expense.

Lots of tears

Not because another person I love has left this earth.

Lots of wealth

In Friendships, and relationships, and familyships

Lots of good health

I would love to lose weight naturally but I will take what i can get

Lots of travel

And that can mean around to new places in Southern California

Lots of good will

I want done to me that I do to others

I want kindness, support, love, compassion, strength, courage, confidence, consistency, conflict, challenges, growth and lots of laughs.

You hear me

Lots of laughs.

Give me some funny stuff

Happy New Year, New Year

May we have a good, healthy relationship this Year!
