It’s day numbero uno in couch potato life, and I’ve been watching tv and thinking all day long. Am I living my life to my happiness? Cause my goal for 2019 was to create my online platform for my career as an author, yet, I’ve had so many speed bumps. From being sick to a disapproving father over a relationship, my brain cannot process anymore unhappiness. That’s why I went ahead and started blogging, and started this poetry prompt challenge because I needed to take back my life.
My happiness and mental health is so important and I’m learning people are not as they seem if something does not go his or her way. Even the adults in my life and my boyfriend’s life. They people we are suppose to look up to are disappointing us in reliably. Hence, this blog post is titled, “unreliable call”. There is hardly anyone I can call and talk too, family wise. Everyone’s too busy off getting married, or raising kids. Life is going on and we are sitting here dealing with family. Most of my friends don’t even live at home anymore. We gotta move. We have got to do something cause the nest is getting uncomfortable.
Day 12: “Write a poem about a recent text you sent”
My last text was to my boyfriend: “Don’t worry, you’ll get everything done. Stay positive.” Just like my rant above, my boyfriend and I only have each other, which is scary. Reason being, we are still figuring out life in our mid-20s. Life, religion, marriage, and kids. So much to learn, the only guidance we have is God. Where are our parents?
A planted tree by Eevee
adults are too busy being a tree
Relying on themselves
Too prideful to ask for
Help, yet blame millennials
For not having our shirt together
Where are you? Adults hammering
Down the law, authority have no
Rights to judge
We are children, your children
Where is the guidance?
We rely on each other
We rely on the streets
For comfort, for relief
By drugs, alcohol
The idea of numbness is
Isolation is a natural tract, man-made
God did not create us to be
Separate, we are meant to be
Equals, helpers, and givers
Alienation should be an assumption
A quick response to the hardness of
If your hurting or need help, please call 1-800
Talk it out, positively
I’m tired of the back talk
The threats of objects taken away
We are kids, but in adult bodies
Yet, you still think we need raising
No, we need guidance
The raising is done. What a wonderful
Job you have done, sweetie?
Now, let me go soak my aching feet.
