week 642 ~ shake up the box that is our world

with 2 comments

shake up the box that is our world
we bounce inside directionless
ahead behind it’s all a mess
lost in the contradictions hurled
in lieu of facts false flags unfurled
won’t stop our future from sinking
in the muck ahead unthinking
compartmentalizing our grief
we walk on hoping for relief
knowing our prospects are shrinking

week 230 ~ for everything comes after

with 6 comments

me.230

for everything comes after
in this place of sad goodbyes
there will be room for laughter

take solace from your past her
promises were never lies
for everything comes after

so climb aboard the raft cer-
tain grief bleeds through all disguise
there will be room for laughter

as you stop make a half turn
and look forward with new eyes
for everything comes after

where memories at last blur
and dreams materialize
there will be room for laughter

just hold your loved ones fast sure
you’re sailing toward blue skies
for everything comes after
there will be room for laughter
