Diversion

Diversion

Fifteen minutes…
Getting away

Dulling the edge
s
Finding my ease
Slowing the pace

 Feeling the breeze

Life swirls all around me
Twisting, and rubbing
against my grain
Spinning, and brushing
against my brain
A whirlwind of emotions
Contorting, and slamming
against my pain

Fifteen minutes…
Composing alone

Gathering my thoughts
Diverting my mind
Focusing my attention
Loosening my bind

Soothed by my distractions
Standing at the window
watching the rain
Listening to the birds’
cheerful refrain
Getting outside of myself

 Searching for anything
to divert the pain

Seeing the bottles
trying to abstain
Seeking to exist
beyond my bane

Fifteen minutes…
Diversion

Away
Alone
A selfish burden
I make my own

Whirlwind

 

 Whirlwind

Caught in a whirlwind.
Engulfed by life.

So many questions
I cannot address
So many people
I cannot impress
Wanting the most
but giving less
A pathetic pawn
in a game of chess


 
Consumed by realities
in this daily race
Spinning around me
while I stand in place
My mind on a swivel
at a frantic pace
Spending valuable time
to just save face

Skewed by the hurry.
Consumed by
 change.

A shot of humility
straight to the brain
A shot of adrenalin

vain to vein
The speed of truth
the bite of pain
As much to prove
as there is to gain


Refocus to realities

just a minor dip
Broaden these shoulders
and remove the chip
On life’s vast radar
just a minor blip
I will assume the helm
and right this ship
