Think About It

221439-Peeking-Owl

 

There’s something to be said about a bruised spirit

 A memo to oneself to grasp a steadfast pivot

Sheeple fret too much about being compliant

Losing their sense of being self-reliant

Fixed in a soda pop world shutters the mind

To question what’s dealt is a positive sign

Having sense enough to get out of the rain

Doesn’t prepare oneself to go against the grain

Inherit personality traits that manifest true grit

Make a joke of the norm and cop the yen to outwit

-Eugenia

  1. You captured it in the first line with ‘a bruised spirit’. One needs to be hurt and injured a little, or too adventurous to take divergent paths. The crescendo builds up to ‘making a joke of the norm.’ Totally loved this, Franci!

  5. An excellent poem Eugenia,
    “Sheeple fret too much about being compliant
    Losing their sense of being self-reliant”,……

    True, we live too much in fear, instead of speaking up for ourselves… But I think Eugenia we are seeing more now taking up that gauntlet and speaking up and out..

    wise poem dear friend… and loved the Owl.. ❤
