Who Am I

Note: This is Day 1 of 7 of a writing exercise they had us do when I was in this half way house after my stay in the mental health unit. It wasn't something they required to be written in poem form or rhyme or anything. That's just me. I actually think writing in rhyme helps me to express myself. :) Who Am I ? I am the breeze, I do as I please. If you want to know just watch me blow. The aftermath will show the trail I'm on. Just don't blink for soon I'll be gone. You say you want my guts. If you think you're going to get that, you're nuts. I can do these little exercises. But I don't trust them who despises. So when the sun comes back around. You'll see I'm planted firm on the ground. Yesterday's ambitions are all used up. So today, I'll just pour another cup. Reflections come in many ways. I'm left looking for the one that pays. Day 1: Who am I? I am me until I die. I didn't say they were good. :) Just vented my angst as I thought I should. :)

Thanks for stopping by Richard and reading a few of my poems. Most of what I write is dealing with my feelings. :) <3 That's why I like to write a limerick from time to time, to lighten things up a bit. :) <3

Poetry is a beautiful way to vent and so cathartic. This is a true expression of your feelings and is poignantly spoken. Wonderful! Very nice to meet you. Aloha, Connie : )
