Cathartic

To define the word cathartic It means providing psychological relief Through expressions of strong emotions To substantiate one's beliefs An example is a conversation With someone 'bout their hopes and dreams Hopes they have for themselves and family Helping them stay on stream Allowing someone to vocalize Their anxieties, their worries, their fears Can help them out at a time of great stress Appreciated for the coming years Therapeutic also defines cathartic Rewarding both the giver and receiver Providing each with a feeling of fulfilment Making each in life a believer To define the word cathartic It means providing psychological relief Through expressions of strong emotions To substantiate one's beliefs © Jack Ellison 2012

    Hi Debbie! On your suggestion, I entered your contest. Not sure if the title went in but obviously the title is "Cathartic". Love and good wishes from the deep thinking Jack! LOL

    Your poems were great fun before... but... You've upped the ante to sophisticated and brilliant... Cathy must be your muse. Tell her I think she's got you smoking... I'll never be able to compete with great works like this... I just finished two HaHa poems... 'McRac in Vegas'... and 'The Creature From Troll Lake'. I'm trying to bring in a story to add the armadillos... but that may be too tough to pen down...Get it...LOL

    "sophisticated and brilliant"??? YIKES!!! HaHa poems are much more my style but once in a while I go off on these tangents! Think maybe Cathie's been juicing up my Pablum! Love and happy thoughts, Jack

    Sipping, no, guzzling my morning coffee and reading my morning Jack. Today I find the good Dr. Jack dispensing wisdom. Must also note that Jack regularly dispenses giggles - freely and with no prescription required - now that is health care!
