If nothing makes sense
and your world seems upside down
teetering on the brink
of emotional upset
If angry feelings harbor
in your leaden heart
tie them to an anchor
let it drop
If the force inside your being
is pushing you to the edge
gather strength to offer your hand
take one step back
A simple act
will have a loving impact
Two souls will no longer
Two hearts will no longer

I’m not sure if this would be considered poetry,
but it’s something to think about
when our emotions are unbalanced.
Wishing you all a bright Monday. xo

Whatever it is it is good!
Thanks, Joe! I’m still not sure, but I’m glad you liked it! 🙂
I think it is some very wise words of advice.
Thanks, Binky, I appreciate that and am glad you think so! Have a great Tuesday!
I liked the last verse. It’s true! What we do with good intentions for others benefits both the giver and the one receiving.
Thanks so much, Ian, and yes, it’s all about helping others, which is rewarding to us. 🙂
I think it is some very sound advice.
Thanks, Michelle! It does sound more like advice than poetry! 🙂
Wow! This is so beautiful!
Thanks, Iris, I always appreciate your good vibes here! xx
Thanks Geo, and for all your visits today, too! I appreciate them! 🙂
We have more choice over our emotions than we often believe. Can be hard though, but choosing the right ones makes life a lot easier. And it helps if everyone else around you has the same mindset too! 🙂
I completely agree, Suzy, and thanks for your comment. Have a lovely weekend!
Lauren this is a beautiful verse.. And very poetic in my view.. We should all gift ourselves some love.. Which is what I have been doing.. Life gets too hectic and we get frayed at the edges sometimes Lauren.. Thats partly why I took time out.. to nurture ME.. 🙂 Bless you Lauren for all the GIFTS of LOVE you bring us.. Many thanks dear one.. Hugs Sue…. xxx
Poetry is an expression that comes straight from heart and soul and if that is so then you are touched by poetic muse. Quite a few followers here would think so…
Thank you very much, Don, for your kind words..I do write from the heart and am blessed that there are people who enjoy it. 🙂 I also appreciate your visit!
