Worry is a friend of mine

It sits on my couch
when I watch TV




I lose worry, and worry where it went

Sometimes it goes on vacation
comes back well rested


I said something to the clerk today
before I never would

The look given
enough to turn and run

I am one of those people, I have waited on before

I was standing up for myself
it came out all wrong

Trying to explain would only make it worse
understanding, will be my new best friend.

Middle America

Bus was late
fruit gone bad
Nothing to wear but 70 pairs of shoes, it's true

Poor me

Hurry hurry

For what

Where are you going

Could have
should have

Easy to fall back on

Today is the first day
of the rest of your life

Life's Lesson

What was a concern at 20
seems so trivial now
To go back and take things lightly, serious was I
how many times thought the world was crumbling
Still do
Need to be pulled back by the Lord
His love and the path that is to be

Days will be gray
sunshine too
Like a muscle, perspective &
outlook become stronger
Rubber ball bounce back
when before
taking an eternity to glue

20 year old me
do not fear

Let go

Thoughts waterfall
from mind to fingertips
unleashed years of emotion
Hardened Finn that is me, cannot say things I should
for I am rich in the sense of love and being loved
More value than any object or material so many hold first.

Save it for later

Avoidance can become a disease
like soft concrete to harden cement
Waiting too long
makes one numb
Pray it will never be me.

Poem One

Why did I do this?
something always wanted
like the pendulum swinging
always there
silent, back of mind.
Writing perhaps to nobody
who cares
sets one free.
