Addiction

I’m an addict

And I know it!

I revere two of the three Cs:

Coffee, candy, and cigarettes.

I love my coffee alone with my contemplation

Of life, likes, posts, news, like a great commotion,

Flitting from one to the next trying to see

What’s best before I rest to be free.

Posts galore and replies of mine

Make my day, as the taste of Coffee

Feels like a sinful pleasure.

With my dark drink, I bite into chocolate,

And drift into a coma at heaven’s gate.

I savor the sweetness along the strength

Of body of the coffee and it’s bitterness.

Life with the morning rituals

Cake, candy, chocolate, coffee and sweets

Is like life without a hero like Ferrero,

Or Cadbury, Mars, KitKat, and Aero!

Raising the bar in a day filled

With noise, poised to litter the mind

With fear, worry, and being drear!

So my habitual start is set in stone:

Coffee, contemplation, quiet that have

A lead to social media, news, where I refuse

To succumb to its dadarkness

That needs to twist your morning addictions

Into a depressive, foggy darkness.

Let your coffee’s wisdom fill

Your empty cup with hope that will

Reject to solidify into despair,

But reaches in your depths to repair.

Patriarchy

So men have gotten the fame they desire!

An entire day to their name! Who will enjoy it?

Who will cherish it?

Who will value the importance of it?

Who will disregard it?

Who will relate to it?

Who will abuse the power it lelt?

I know not!

What I do know is that men have a bad rap

History has turned them into a patriarchy crap

That has defined a man’s role in society,

Trying vainly to bind them into labels that are sappy.

Men and women are different. Let’s celebrate that!

Enjoy the opportunity to meld minds together,

Enjoy being amorous, friends, sons, daughter,

Binary opposites who need one another.

Don’t let social needs rule your ethics and values,

Generally, women are greater nurtures,

While men have a greater ability to withstand

Handle, and shoulder problems that grind

The heart and mind into dust, if their strength

Weren’t obvious in its existence in each breath.

Listen to the the father, son, brother talking:

They discuss how to provide for their family’s being

Proud of their conduct as they also give of themselves

To their ‘women’, children, friends, and careers.

Never underestimate the support that both

Generate to help survive in a world where debauchery,

Sin, gaslighting, deriding, racial slurring, iniquity

Are all part of our social order, that we deem both

A Necessary evil and a required critique of the unacceptable.

For change and acceptance to occur,

Time, teaching, learning, understanding don’t slur

The values of humanity, rather, they enforce them

By being more charitable, helpful, and adaptive.

Spring Awakening

With spring comes the necessity of all that’s new,

New life, babies, flings, relationships, and few

Appreciate the changes that swing in spring.

The wind lightens into a soothing breeze,

The sun warms your frozen new bones to appease

Your growing need to bask in the sun’s kiss.

As the rain drips, falls, and poors into the solified

Ground that has preserved life in a cryogenic state

That keeps everything in a scenic embrace as if framed.

Framed by what looks like a dying ecosystemed

That slowly crawls back to life like a recently awakened

Turtle ambling at a lollylag pace that seems to Creep.

Time, like the turtle, inches forward trying to break your bones,

That solid structure that holds your flesh in place, tries

To keep you from embarrassment by keeping you upright.

However, time, the unseen entity, ephemeral, and intangible

Runs like an athlete, seeping your youth, turning it

To wisdom, faith, uniqueness, healing, power in old age.

Espouse your frailty by striving for perfection

Knowing only God adheres to that image,

While ‘man’ is inherently flawed but humane.
