Just Passing Through

Passing through for a short time
Just stopped in to tell you “Hey” 
nothing specific on my mind
Haven’t had much to say.

Been over a year since I wrote a single word
Or been able to finish a complete thought 
My mind been cloudy in a fog 
Distracted and distraught 

Trepidation hovers closely 
apprehensive of my life 
feeling the future isn’t promising
Often filled with stress and strife

Somedays my thoughts abandon me
Like my ex-lover who still owes me money
Five hundred if I recall
When I see him again, it will not be very funny

Inflation kicking my ass,  
Bills feels like they will never go away
Got the roof fixed just last month 
Seems it’s something new everyday 

So how you been? I hope all has been well
Looks like you gained a little weight.
Me too, four or five pounds, 
Ok, more like eight.  

My aunt recently died of cancer
The family’s matriarch is dead
She passed with loved one’s all around her 
In the sanctuary of her own bed 

This world is strange and scary
Innocent lives cut short 
Nineteen children died senselessly 
with a weapon that was easily brought.

Wars declared by mad men
Mental health issues on the rise
Politicians meant to protect us
But instead they fill us with lies 

All this killing has me fearful 
while Exxon Mobil needs to go to jail
I pray that people hearts amend
And humanity doesn’t fail. 

But I loved your last poem
It was music to my ears 
glad your writing is going so well 
Over this last complicated year. 

I hope the COVID didn’t get you
the Monkey poxs or whatever’s new
Stay safe, be happy, be content
Been really good talking to you,

Trying to think what’s for dinner 
and don’t know when you’ll hear from me again
Until next time, it’s been real  
Peace and love to all my poetry friends.

Wonderful to read Nora. The worst of life seems so much better when written and read in verse.
