TEENAGE JOURNAL I am not coping very well and yet I feel accomplished, complete A good defence mechanism- a new place to visit Although dark and lonely—I escape without company Nobody knows about it… yet Maintenance is time consuming All other aspects of life ignored Easy to disembark and land Return journey difficult….costly Balloons come to mind—resembling individuals, floating… Side by side—occasionally they collide gently Breezes pick up—collisions get stronger, bump and bang My balloon—water filled, packed and crammed Lies heavily on the ground Others may lie there too Waterlogged they collide harshly Spilling their contents on the barely durable and lone The sun comes out – broken bits dry, revealed…. exposed Ignored, no soul concerned-- to sweep up the mess they made
