Spilling Emotions

Spilling emotions and changing moods are part of being human. Many things, including internal, and external factors, can cause such ‘highs and lows’, contributing to changing moods. However, this does not mean that the foundation of our values, boundaries, or central core-being changes.

Personality

Spilling Emotions

Talkative


I am extremely

shy, when

I am not

the center

of attention;


And, I do not

have much to say,

when I do not have

a thousand

things to mention!


Loud


I am generally

down-to-earth,

when I am not

floating away

on a cloud;


And, I tiptoe

all around,

when I am not

being clumsy,

and so loud!


Subdued


I am rather

subdued,

when I am not

telling everyone

(and their brother),

my epic life's story;


And, I like

watching musicals,

when I am not

watching something

gory!


Humbled


I bow down

before The Lord,

but in His Victory,

I stand forever tall;


I am really so

many things,

you see,

but I am also

nothing much at all!

Spilling Emotions

Sometimes, when the spilling of Emotions seems uncharacteristic of a person’s “normal” mood changes, or is overly severe, it can possibly signify a medical or psychiatric condition that should be looked into as soon as possible. There is no shame is seeking help, or talking to a professional who can offer us advice, or guide us to finding solutions!

Friend of Mine

.

Is there a friend

who will stand,

and not bend;

or, do they all

get swept away

like silk petals

on fading

pearls?

.

Is there a friend

who will begin,

and not end;

or, do they all

swim away

while seagulls

wail

above

shimmering

lands?

.

Is there a friend

who will receive,

and not send;

or, do they all

drift away

like red-winged

dragons

searching

for higher

dreams?

Cats need to mind their moods, too, I've noticed.

Thumbs up for rhyme, rhythm and with so few words you created such a juxtaposition of meanings.

Awesome read and still no complexities.
