Think About It

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

  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!

    Perfect words to mull over.


  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.. ❤
