Unwanted Things

Unwanted Things. A car wreck. A kid, unexpected. An absent father to be. A cheater that brought you, a sudden health risk. A divorce. Car troubles. Work issues. Financial burdens. Bad health, that effects you, and… or… those you love. These are a few, of my un-favorite things. There is no song, about these, by Julie… although I read her story, and she had a hard life too.

Hello Ann … You had me thinking my own 'unwanted things' from my past and sure enough, your verse has a lot of me in it, but I guess life is a bit like a rollercoaster ride. Thank you Ann - Lindsay

Ty so kindly. Just melancholy today. It will pass. Need to work on holiday poems and change the fabric of the day. Have such a nice afternoon. Flowers and bright bugs that sing... humming happy... Ann

Ann, Feeling it from these 'Unwanted Things' in your poem. Entangled photograph in black & white. Where could this be(?) Surely not Julie's mountain top in song. -Richard
