Sometimes I say things

Not knowing how to say

What I want to say.

Learning to find the hidden gem

In my stories

Is a talent my friends have.

I do not mean to be obsequious

But I cannot always gather

My thoughts together to be coherent.

I am glad

I have people in my life

Willing to give me a chance.

Not everyone

Has such hidden gems

In the ones who surround them.

Personality Dis-Order

She comes running as soon as I walk out my door.

I sit down in my chair and she is demanding pets.

Meanwhile my two cats sit watching me

as the neighbour’s feline has her way.

Still, I know they love me and they know I love them.

Just somedays when coffee in hand

the morning comes and I sit outside

All I want is to enjoy this life.
