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!
