Outrage is understandable
when expectations are undermined.
Such as you find out
that someone was using you
after promising something else.
I wonder if politics these days
is merely pushing how far
they can get away with stuff
before the outrage happens.
Still, consequences seem to be mild if not nil.
I have begun to realize
my panic attacks happen
when I do not have time
between my appointments
that I feel is comfortable.
Like a full day.
Less than that
I need to be able
to get from one to the other in ample time.
Like an hour or two.
So virtual appointments sometimes work.
Unless they are scheduled
one after the other.
Then I really hope someone else cooks supper.
It may have been done before
but not by me,
so watch as I pour the chocolate
over the peanut butter
and eat a new sandwich!
Someone else’s trauma
does not invalidate your own.
Being happy to lose
only makes you happier for them to have won.
does not mean you are able to do what everyone else can.
means that you also know when to exceed them.
You will never be happy all the time
so be joyful when you can.
does not make you a universal idiot.
Just a knowledgeable one.
What other kind of grain is sown so much?
It says it is above freezing.
Yet, stepping outside your fingers begin to freeze.
Watching the sun go down
sends shivers up your spine.
Waiting for morning
means this will be a long night.
Still the barometer promises fair temperatures.
Too bad for those who have no home to sleep in.
Imperfection is king.
Faults are picked on.
Bullying is just another tool.
Why can’t we be nicer to each other?
Beauty is different for everyone.
Kindness is not.
Wordless mouth noises.
You would think someone like me
who makes noises all the time would be good at it?
Apparently I am not a musically rhythmic gymnast.
Beauty is only skin deep.
Yet it is the cute girls who are seen.
Worries and blemishes make us all imperfect.
So why use make-up?
Do what you feel suits you best.
I’m going back to bed.
Beauty sleep is over rated.
Beside hunting tools
the oldest indication of civilization
is its ability
to store things.
Precious things like
water, oils, perfumes
and the like.
The most important one
will always be
Strawberry, Pear or Mango
does not matter to me
so much as it does to my toast!
