I am going to try to do something I have pondered on before but always put it on the back burner. Why, you ask would I do that if I thought it? Because, it is hard work, and most of the time my brain is just too tired. Sounds like a lazy excuse doesn’t it?
My brain is just beginning to focus on important things once again. For so many years I had one focus, my brother. Now I am beginning to think about me. Not in a selfish way, but more of what I would call a healthy way.
So I wrote a poem to myself and would love to share it with you who enjoy reading my poems.
Love like I never loved before
Look at life not today but even more
Find the beauty on the outside
Look very deep and very wide
Bite my tongue don’t say that word
Don’t flip the finger don’t give the bird
Do something nice for them today
I know in my heart its the only way
Get out of bed and say thank-you God
For allowing my feet to touch the sod
Smile even though you don’t feel like it
Get rid of the attitude I don’t give a shit
I believe if I do these things I say
I will have a much better day.
