Rinse and repeat
Add bleach if necessary
Until it all seems clean
Even if it doesn’t feel that way
At least that’s how it appears
The whole picture becomes distorted
Inside cracked mirrors
Chilly morning walks with my dog
give me a time to reflect in retrospect
on the many causes and effects
that have brought me to where
I currently stand today.
I have come to realize that the Universe
knows when to open and close doors
for situations and the people involved
that are crucial to experience or avoid
for optimal personal growth.
Sometimes it feels as if the Universe
has pulled the floor out from under my feet,
and I have come to appreciate
how it helps me understand
what it’s truly like to be grounded.
Glass shards litter the lawns in this town.
In this town, I have found nothing of true value.
Value is a concept beyond tangible money.
Honey, you aren’t worth your weight in gold.
I dream of leaving but I can’t stop believing that I’m stuck.
Stuck in the quicksand that is this city.
Oh, what a pity.
Dr. Seuss Taught Me How to Read
If every day is a brand new slate
Then it is my given fate
To have my heart skip a beat
Every single time we meet
