“THE DAWN OF A NEW DAWN!” a poem August 9, 2019 (Friday)
YES, YES, YOU D E F I N I T E L Y DESERVE BETTER,
Or – DESERVE-D BETTER! Let’s-ALL get together and let-her,
LUXURIATE – in “better” and/or “worse!”
Yet, these things just-never exist – So, we will EMPTY our PURSE,
The purse! holding-all-those-supposedly-“broken-dreams”-&-dis-appointments!
SHALL WE PUT AWAY THE SALVES AND THE OINTMENTS,
That have been liberally applied – to HIDE the PAIN?
There’s-ONLY: “What-is!”-&-“What’s-been!” and-“YOU!” CAN-FOREVER explain,
[About] THE IMPOSSIBILITY of “Letting-Go –
WE CAN GO BACK FOREVER – AND VISIT “THERE,”
And, therefore, always have sticky goo – in our beautiful hair,
OR! – Why-not WASH-IT, dry-The-Hair – and accept The Past,
And – CONTINUE-ON! You-might-have-a-blast!
The answer? Because some people LOVE their baggage, saying: “It’s charming –
To-be IN tense Pouty! and-altogether ALARMING!”
Thus, they can always hear people say: “I’m SORRY for you,
And all you’ve been through! Oh, boo-hoo-hoo!”
OF COURSE, those who want to hold onto Their Pasts, will gasp,
AND-SAY: “YOU’RE MEAN,”
But – THE REAL SADNESS!? Yes, what’s REALLY ob-scene,
Is ALLOWING “bad” memories to fester ON & ON,
And: SULK! and-POUT! and-make-others-miserable-forever!
WHAT ABOUT A NEW DAWN?
