Clearing out the Junk

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.


I find myself sweating excessively with heat intolerance and withdrawals.
Feeling chaotic and drained, losing my balance, seeing double, fuzzy, and fog brained, I stumble. The cannabis slowly leaves my blood and body.
I’m tired of polluting my body with that crap!

I will wake up with a new outlook on my world once it’s gone.
I thank the Lord above for loving family and friends, grateful I have them.
As I suffer through withdrawals, I need to remember these awful feelings,
With intent NOT to use again. Lord, help me!

That sensation of flying blind to escape is not a truthful way of life.
Soon I will think clearly about where I stand.
This COVID thing has had me stuck in one place too long.
Sleeping in too much along with missing the friends I know.

I know I’ll feel better when the pollution leaves my system.
I’ll think much more clearly in order to write my poetry and color my drawings.
Some day I will publish my poems into a little book!
Poetry and Misc Fanciful Writings By Laurie S Novak

So, my challenge to myself is to get my book put together.
I’ll learn how to go about publishing a book, and share with anyone who’s interested. I will send my love and light into the world, with the soul of a gypsy, the heart of a hippie and the spirit of a fairy, my gift!

Thank you, Dream On, for your encouraging thoughts. I will continue to challenge myself to be a better person each day forward. Peace.

Keep going forward. It is hard but nobody said it was going to be easy. Then again nobody ever expressed and lived your life like you. So tell the world. Share and be proud of it. Thank you for giving all the good you have.

Yes hope is what I go to when I'm down. There's always hope, right? Thanks for reading and commenting, Ann.
