Two Poems For You and Class

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

One poem I wrote about this midlife thing I am going through. Today was a bad day for me. I really did not feel like doing much of today. On top of that it was raining today and melting snow and leaving messes. Here is the first one
OH Sweet Midlife Crisis
Seems I cannot even think
I would rather stuff myself or drink
It would not take much
To start losing my clutch

Hour after hour slips by
Feeling sad, don't know why
I should clean the house
But my energy has been doused

All i can do is read
Paying no mind or heed
To what's going on outside
It's like my brain has died

Don't want to exercise
I have taken up a disguise
Today I am being lazy
And maybe a little crazy

Feeling rather blue
Don't know what to do
Have another cup of joe
While i let the grass grow

Oh getting older really stinks
Makes you come to the brink
Move ahead or go back on the shelf
Have a good look at yourself

In these middle years
Nothing is ver y clear
Except i know I am real
And I know how I feel.

I Am A Tiger
When it comes to my own
I am a tiger
I will strike out

I am a mother fiercely loyal
I am a tiger
Leave my cub alone

I am her staunchest friend
To the very end
I am a tiger

Attack me and be sorry
Attack you's better worry!
I am a tiger

i have no trouble choosing
Who will end up losing
I stick by my own
For i am a tiger.
Laura Strnad

I wrote this in defense of my daughter who is being unfairly attacked just because she cares about me and her grandmother. I will send the letter tomorrow and also write and ask my sisterinlaw to apologize for what she said to my daughter. I will try to rectify what i can; but if it comes down to it i will choose my daughter over them. I will not allow anyone to divide us; she is all I have left of my husband; and she comes first. I am deliberating yet what to choose for my essay; and i have to post for the other question yet.

    emoticon Laura emoticon It's so good that you can put your feelings and thoughts down on paper. RE: midlife crisis - hang in there, it WILL pass. Don't look at it as getting older, remember, you're getting closer to "home" with Jesus.

    I know Jenny appreciates that you take her side and are supporting her. I'm praying regarding your sister-in-law.
