Little Joys

LITTLE JOYS














A walk in the rain
To wash away my pain
On a mountain top stargazing
Instant friendships are amazing
Ticking items on my bucket list
Unexpected wins with a twist

The ocean waves at my feet
My favorite song on repeat
Perfect photographs in a new outfit
Fun adventures on a night moonlit
Watching the clouds shape shifting
Random acts of kindness uplifting

Snug fit jeans are world class
While walking barefoot on the grass
Watching the beautiful sunset
and nibbling my favorite chocolate
Crisp clean pages of a new book
Good karma that I overlook

Tears from laughing too hard
Birthday wishes and handmade cards
Long conversations on the phone
Smile from a stranger unknown
Cuddling together when it’s cold
Reminiscing with photographs old

Long tight hugs until I swoon
Bursting bubble wrap all afternoon
Planning long road trips maybe
Sleeping blissfully like a baby
Waking up to a loved one’s message
A genuine thank you does assuage

Fortune cookies and ice creams
Handwritten letters and good dreams
Happy memories and compliments
Piggy back rides and surprise presents
Jigsaw puzzles and playground swings
These are a few of my favorite things!

Hollow-hearted

HOLLOW HEARTED












You park your car wherever you want
Without caring that others are troubled
You litter on the roadside
The street cleaners’ job is doubled

You aren’t scared of the law
You bribe and get your way
You commit crimes yet don’t get caught
And leave the innocent in dismay

You don’t do anything fruitful
But only crib, blame and complain
You are inept and neglect your work
Because you are selfish and vain
           
It’s time you do your bit for the nation
And make this a better place
Fill your hollow heart with sincerity
To benefit the human race!

Trepidation

TREPIDATION










How much longer must I float? 
it's been so long already 
When will I get answers? 
that will make me steady

With eyes full of questions 
and dreams filling my heart
I look into the future 
to give me a head start

With no aim or definite goal
I’m stumbling in the dark
Need this trepidation to go away
so I can make my mark

The present brings no joy
I am losing my essence and identity
Without a purpose I’m hollow
maybe I need serendipity

This was never my plan
it's gone horribly wrong 
All the hard work seems futile
that I had put in for so long

By this time I had hoped to
accomplish so much more
But I'm back to square one 
and It's shaken up my core

I don't have the strength
to make choices or decide 
I don't know which way to go 
with no one walking beside

Perhaps soon the dark clouds 
will clear and show the light 
Perhaps soon the negativity 
will dissolve from my sight…

Restless sensations

RESTLESS SENSATIONS










A growing restlessness
taking ahold of me on its own
It’s trying to pull me away
in directions unknown

Neither here nor there
do I wish to stay
Neither this nor that
do I want to do today

Should I go with the flow?
or walk away
Should I listen to my gut?
or hold on and sway

A weird sensation
beyond my reigns of control
Gratitude slowly wearing off
and frustration rising in my soul
