Sometimes it's hard for me to decide where I want to publish my poems because my blog receives hundreds of visits daily, but on the other hand, I want to give my Patrons my best writings as well. And I am publishing fresh content regularly, meaning I'm always writing new poetry. And for the most part, I want my work out there in the public domain.
That's why I'm grateful to have my Patrons, you are keeping my blog and domain running! I just had to renew both my WordPress plan and my domain and your pledges allowed me to do that! So thank you very much for your support! I'm grateful I can keep writing and publishing my work!! ❤
With that said, the economy is broken with the recent Covid virus outbreak, which I know has impacted others financially. So, I'm making this one a freebie, and this post will be made public (for my Patrons it's bonus content). It's just my way of saying I hope you are keeping well out there! Isolation has been extremely tough on my end, especially because I suffer from PTSD, depression, anxiety, and other health issues. I'm actually not doing well. I'm not okay. And I plan to put that on a tee and wear it. But.
Below is my new poem and it is mostly about hard lessons learned. I hope you will enjoy its somber mood. And it is in the form of rhyme (because that's kind of my thang). Drop me a like or comment if you dig it! ❤
I know where his road leads,
To condemnation and six foot graves.
Like repentance that never waves,
And a cage for your needs.
He'll mark the path,
Like candy glowing.
'Watch your step' he's always crowing,
It is fuel for his wrath.
Be careful what you wish for,
He won't make it true.
Like everything you ever knew,
Has left you not so sure.
He ran me away from myself,
Like a comet hailing towards the sun.
And leaving trails of regret for what I've done,
After all, what is left?
