    I see our world in puddles

    Puddles of rubble
    Will double
    With war
    We resolve
    To live in peace
    And decide
    To try
    To end all famine
    And war
    And poverty
    And to be love

    Hurricane Ida

    Hurricane force winds
    Destroying what’s in its path
    Live another day


  • tessapoetessa 9w


    Enchanting thunder
    Daily wonder
    We put asunder
    Transfer our blunder

    Together ahead
    Forever dread
    Stay well fed
    Or losing instead

    Nineteen sixty-four
    The year I was born
    How old am I?
    Do the math, just try

    July is the month
    My weight 5 lbs 2 ounces
    My mother gave birth
    To me, to this Earth

    FIfty-seven years
    I've lived many fears
    Many more to come
    I believe I've won

    Or my loss
    At all cost

    Freedom Lost

    Taumatically bound
    Lost and found
    Trying to unwind
    What do we find
    Inevitable truth
    Lost in youth
    Working together
    Raging forever
    Universal wisdom
    Today's cynicism
    Tomorrow's laughter
    Today's disaster
    Thinking positive
    Wanting all of it
    Getting little
    Wondering the middle
    Seeking perfection
    Our reflection
    Is nothing perfect
    Yet completely worth it
    The world's people
    Liked perpetual
    Working against
    Hitting a fence
    Universal harmony
    No more armies
    Free love of the 60s
    Hate and discontent nowadays
    Where do we go
    No more to show
    People are dead
    You've lost your head
    Heading back home
    No longer to roam
    Aftermath continues
    Sadness in the venue

    Dear sweet wolf
    My wild animal
    Living proof
    Life’s not final

    Roaming time
    Endless wonder
    Forever mine
    Yet forever asunder

    Years apart
    Years together
    Never gone far
    Yet home forever

    Life’s a mystery
    Full of wonder and bliss
    Uncomplicated misery
    Emotions amiss

    You or me
    Universal energy
    Together we see
    Around until eternity

    Real People

    Real people
    Live real lives
    Not full of lies
    But filled with tries
    To do right
    Live in the light
    Sit tight
    With little fright
    Not hiding behind phone screens
    Living a fantasy dream
    Luring people like flies
    With their constant cries
    Of loneliness and suffering
    Asking for nothing
    And everything
    From everyone
    Annoying with their constant barrage
    Of whining and garbage
    Feeding their social media feeds
    With stupidity
    Not lucidity
    Stay away from these fakers
    They will rake her
    And forsake her
    Until there is nothing
    And I mean nothing
    Except a mess
    With stress
    And they call me


  • tessapoetessa 11w


    Today is just another day
    Is that what they say
    I try as I may
    I can’t have it my way

    Tomorrow will be here
    It’s not knowing that I fear
    The present and future dear
    Stop staring, don’t leer

    What it it I see
    Is it you or is it me
    That belongs to the sea
    The sea is a beauty

    Tired of waiting for you
    I’m tired of waiting for you too
    Tired of caring too
    What is it you do

    Stop crying over your decisions
    Make amends recision
    Trust in your oblivion
    See clearly your destination

    Anxiety has finally left
    Happy to live the rest
    Feeling I passed the test
    Truly we are blessed

    Your best life

    Live your best life
    Free of strife
    Free of stress
    Life’s a quest

    Or are we just living
    Living and giving
    Until there is nothing left
    You know the rest

    We work and slave
    To live from day to day
    We need a rest
    We try our best

    But is our best good enough
    Buying and buying all this stuff
    Filling our void with junk
    Trying to get out of this funk

    Eating and drinking to feel better
    Ah, but we all know better
    Is this our best life
    What does the husband tells his wife

    Stop whining and make my dinner
    Boy did she pick a winner
    Eating and drinking to kill them
    Neither man nor woman will win then

    She is living her best life
    Closes her eyes avoiding the knife
    Kids criticizing her daily work
    Why did she raise such jerks

    What did you say, she says
    Seeing through a fog of red
    Temper raises at what is said
    Is she better off dead

    No one to take care of her
    No man to be her Sir
    Just living her best life
    Stop criticizing her brain gripes

    Waking up another day
    What is it she wants to say
    Are you are living your best life
    Ask this daily to end your strife

    We all start as strangers

    We are all strangers
    When we meet
    Away in the manger
    Or in a city street

    When we become friends
    It’s because we like the same things
    It’s that we both will win
    It’s not about rings

    We cherish our friendships
    Hold close to our heart
    They can mean mor than kinship
    From right off the start

    In time no longer strangers
    But it takes patience and time
    Willing to survive the danger
    Willing to share yours and mine

    Sometimes friendships are fleeting
    Lasting just a moment in time
    It’s maybe a chance meeting
    Over dinner with wine

    A friendship may end
    Abruptly, just like that
    Leaving no time to mend
    Over in the eye blink of a cat

    How can that be
    A friend turns his back
    It’s because the friendship wasn’t we
    It’s the strangers that lack

    The apology is to the stranger
    Who chooses, say so
    We all start with danger
    If I’m lucky you won’t go.
