Poem #5

 




 I came in one day
&
found Sharon dead
&
I went mad.

Because you were there
&
let me have
my
madness
&
grief
I am healing.

Thank you.

“The death of my child

leaves me

in

a different world

I feel

set apart

somehow.

My choice

to

face

her

death

has opened

secrets

I

did not know

were there.

I came in one day

&

found Sharon dead

&

I went mad.

Because you were there

&

let me have

my

madness

&

grief

I am healing.

Thank you

I Am So Glad

I Am So Glad

I am so glad that the last 60 to 90 days we have only seen mostly peaceful protests, if they had become riots, we may have lost many of our beautiful cities and there may have been some destruction of peoples lives and businesses.  But even if that would have happened it was only money and property, which are of no account anyway.  So, I am glad none of that really happened.

As for Covid-19, of course Trump is responsible for everything that went wrong.  Like
putting infected people back in the nursing homes and the continuing moving of the goal posts from flattening the curve to how many infections per day per state.

As for Trump, that bigot and racist, what could we expect except that Black Lives Matter so little to him that he has done nothing to help anyone but his own family. 


Thank goodness the Dems are going to get rid of him and all his crazy policies that just “aren’t
right”

How I feel Today

With what is going on in my counyry I feel much like I did when my daghter died.  I feel like my country is dying


 

When I

all  alone

&

the universe

is

only

my pain & grief.

 

That is

when

I

know most

deeply

what

it

means
