Poetry in My Mind Group



Security blanket reminds

Me of babies so sweet

Sucking their thumbs

Carrying blankets ore feet.


Babies toss them aside

As they grow and mature

But are they secure

I’m not really quite sure.


I notice that teens

And some adults too

Don’t carry a blanket

They use different tools.


Some are cutters

Others sell themselves out

Some use those drugs

That we’ve all learned about.


With even the best

Parenting that we know how to do

There are those who didn’t hear it

And don’t think they’re cool.


None of us are perfect

We all have a place

Where we don’t feel we fit in

This big human race.

Written by,

Terry Shepherd
