So, apparently no good deed is true- a poem

Frustrated to the brim is how days are ruled

Running is a dream but leaving is not a choice

The need to cry is great but I cannot reveal the tears

Like the boy crying wolf, with each time meaning less

Trying with might to suppress the flow of sorrow

After all, life is good, right?

But am losing faith at cheetah speed

Even my partner has run out of his resoluteness

Though others around me are not to blame

I took on a feat seemingly comparable to a moon landing

So as a fine southern woman, I must put on my big girl panties

As they say, no good deed goes unpunished

And how dare I complain when someone else is suffering

Under all circumstances, keep your legs crossed and smile sugar

That is the way of a lady after all

Sounding polite and being pleasant is socially acceptable

Showing feelings and telling the truth is unwelcome, shameful

In the world of fallacy and falsities sharing feelings is a no

I will never regret this act of kindness that I chose

It is my duty of love to do so, my debt to repay

Though I give and care willingly

I am slowly losing tiny bits of me

Turning into a mere shell of myself

Prayer is what I am working on to restoreth my sould

But words seem empty and hopeless

Gratefulness and positivity tickle my tongue

But in one second flat it is all done

Then the lucrid taste of looking back ruins the mantra

The rearview mirror of laughter and nostalgia

Poisoning the stew of being fine

Destroying civility-implosion style

With every morn, attitude is anew

The night nags constantly with guilt

So sunshine starts like a spark

Then selfishness of previous times undo it in a flash

Making the question of choices crest like a constant wave

God forgive the unkindness and self absorption

Humanness rears its ugly head during loss

Or the perception of

Taking away the precious moments lying right before us

Disallowing us to cherish what is current

Fevering everything around with regret and remorse

I have tons of education and don't use it! I am non-traditional and traditional rolled into one person. I am a Christian, but need work! I am conservative fiscally, but I could care less who someone marries. My favorite things to do are: hang out with my kid, watch movies, read, write, sing, dance, love, live life to the fullest! I love: my kid, my cat, my guy, God, rain, chocolate, Christmas, friends, cats, animals in general, honesty, avocados, love, Hallmark channel, iced coffee, Harry Potter, NYC, England, Italy, D.C., Paris and autumn.
