A Poem For Today!

26 Feb

I am a writer. I am a writer of blogs and books. I never thought I could be a writer of poetry. For some odd reason I always thought that poetry writing was for “other people” or certain kinds of people. Whatever that means! Over the last few months, I have been writing poems and enjoying myself in the process. Some cathartic experiences have come out of this too. Here is a poem that came to me this morning:


A New Perspective

I opened my eyes.

Both literally and figuratively.

After a good nights sleep,

I saw things more clearly.

It feels like a new day.

It’s good to take things slowly.

Stop, drop and roll

Everything escalated so quickly.

Bad words were spoken.

They were said so harshly.

We recognize we couldn’t continue,

So the call ended abruptly.

By sleeping I had a chance,

To think about it softly.

I feel so much better now.

We can talk about it openly.
