EATING DIFFERENTLY

EATING DIFFERENTLY

 

While people morn, this life must go on,

Tony brought me humus and crackers to feast upon…

Chickpeas ground with garlic

Is supper tonight,

Have a head of broccoli

For a going-home snack just right…

Eating healthy

Will help me feel okay,

Thank you, Lord, for Tony

And friends to show the way!

BROKENNESS OVER A BREAK

BROKENNESS OVER A BREAK

 

Cranking up his stereo

Was the best way to go…

Pounding rock beats

Broke though his conceits

And broken, let his tears flow.

His inner pressures intense,

Temptation to breaking immense…

If the safety valve stuck

He’d run amuck,

Or kill himself, given the chance.

Thank God that some alternatives

Are heightened when a sufferer lives…

Belting lyrics in the car

May not seem going far,

But it’s better than resigning to “what gives?”
