Coffee Time

This is how I am feeling this morning. Up at the ungodly hour of 3:45 a.m. so I can be at work for 5 a.m.

Today’s Poem will be late in coming if I am able to process and make my brain work later today without its injection of life saving coffee.

Hope you all have an absolutely wonderful day. Any loud snoring you hear may possibly be because I have fallen asleep.

 

Believe

Coffee wafts through the air
senses becoming alert
no time to feel despair
no time to stop and relate
life is such a busy state
never a chance to recall
the missed times of childhood late.
Love
Misery
Divorce
Life
Reboot
Recall
Re-love?
Sunshine and swing sets
parks and long walks
children laughing
corn fattening
this is what memories play.
Work
Bills
Lawyers
Alcohol
Drugs
Fall
Get up
Give up
Come clean
Reconnect
Re-dream?
Cabin in the summer rain
war played on the carpet
memories that do explain
all about happiness.
I am not as lost as I feel to be
I am not as unfounded
ungrounded as I view myself. 
Within me lays the strength of the Titans
Within me lays the power to be
Within me lays the well of hope
all I need to do is believe.
