I saw you struggle today Coffee and bag, trying to open the door I slowed my pace Not wanting to communicate Choosing not to help What if I had Would you have made it to your interview Without a coffee stain on your shirt
I heard your frustration today In the store, with your crying child I looked the other way, pretended not to see When you dropped your bag Choosing not to help What if I had Would it have helped you see You weren’t alone
I saw you standing alone at the party Not knowing anyone, feeling awkward I did not approach you Say hello, and start a conversation Choosing not to help Ease your discomfort What if I had Would I have discovered a new friendship One that lasts a lifetime
Today I sat alone and cried Just needing someone to reach out But they all passed me by Choosing not to help What if they had Would it have given me hope Eased my pain Helped me see I wasn’t alone
I am so glad you are here. Please make yourself at home, here, next to the arm-chair. Let us talk of poetry and life; let us laugh and crack jokes; let us rule the world with our lofty thoughts and electrodes for those out of line.Most likely I will pee a little when we laugh, and my thoughts are usually random rather than lofty, but you know what they say: “The dog of the exceptional wisdom has the bird of sleeping monkeys in his dreams!”Anyway, I was talking to a guy the other day who was high on pot (he was standing on the toilet) and I mentioned my fear of bush hogs and roaches. He comforted me and then asked why I was in the stall with him.So there you go, my full life story nowhere on this page. I feel like we know each other so much better now. Sometimes I’m serious, sometimes I seriously funny, sometimes I’m seriously gassy. I am at all times grateful for your support.If you have an idea to share, or just want to drop a line, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.orgBe excellent to each other and glitter on glitterbombs.
