Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.
Set the Mood
Here is a word from the simple,
A harsh word cut from the wise.
Smile ‘til your cheeks show a dimple,
Laugh ‘til you hurt your sides.
Here is a word from the fool,
A harsh word cut from the genius.
Don’t end up the smart man’s tool,
Freedom is fruitful and I mean this.
Here is a word from the sick,
A harsh word cut from their health.
Don’t fall for promises from the slick,
You must reach out for your own wealth.
Here is a word from the dauntless,
A harsh word cut from the cowardly.
Cherish your bravery and flaunt it,
For hundreds are dying scared, hourly.
Here is a word from the few,
A harsh word cut from the many.
Don’t hang around with nothing to do,
Or they’ll trade you for as little as a penny.
Here is a word from the lazy,
A harsh word cut from the go-getters.
This world can break and make you crazy,
But only if you sit idle, only if you let her.
Here is a word from someone who loves you,
A kind word cut straight from my chest.
Start looking toward the goals you feel are above you,
And realize if you tried, you’d always be the best.
BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on September 05, 2020:
Some see foolishness others see love.
I like the one from someone who loves you.
But the first one doesn't hurt either.
