Different

We all

want

love,

purpose,

good food,

and understanding,

yet we

somehow

manufacture

differences

between us.

Look Again

At any point

we can look

around us

and find

failure, shortcomings,

loss, and dead dreams,

but we should always

look again,

for those

are only stones

scattered

around the flowers

of love, grace,

triumphs, and hope,

and these vibrant

blossoms

are worth admiring.

Social Media Mutiny

Social media debates

are ironic in their

nature and consequence;

you think

you are hurling assaults

upon an adversary,

but it is you,

you,

that is slowly

becoming lesser;

online arguments

are a sort

of silent mutiny,

your own mind

pulling itself

further apart

with every

enter.

Wordsmith Wednesday: Poem XXII

I’ve been terrified

by things many

but nothing

has shaken me

like

how much

I love you.
