O When Does My Shit Come Together? #Poetry #LifeLessons #PoetrtWednesday

One of my writer friends, whom I adore like no other, gave me the title for this poem. She’s handy like that… she is the go to girl for ideas and book bios! She’s simply magnificent! PJ Perryman,  you are the sparkle in my knickers!

O’ When Does My Shit Come Together?

by Penelope Jones

 

 

 O as a child we think when I get older…

I’ll be president, an astronaut, a doctor, or maybe a writer?

 

When we get older we’ll change the world,

cure cancer, and create new adventures.

 

Does that mean I’ve arrived and failed?

 

My life isn’t a bowl of cherries,

it isn’t a walk in the park,

nor can I say… I’m finished.

 

Shit! My dreams are not complete,

my adventures not fulfilled,

nor have I found world peace!

 

Come along for the ride;

I’m ready to complete my mission

 

Together, I think we can finish what I started

and maybe you can answer the age-old question…

 

O’ when does my shit come together?

Fake it ’til you make it… #poetry #lifelessons #ASMSG

How many times have you wanted to say,
Fuck you, buddy; it’s not OK!

Lying, cheating, and being an ass
Repeating my past…

You hurt my feelings
With all those shady dealings!

Don’t try and turn this around
This time I’m standing my ground!

You threw me away like a piece of trash
My heart, my soul turned to ash

I was nothing according to you
Just an old worn out shoe.

Well…

You’re wrong
And it didn’t take me long

To see you for who and what you really are
Before it went to far.

The Phoenix in me shall rise again
But until then,
I’ll just pretend…to be happy!

Fake it
‘Til you make it, right?

I’m in the “Can Do” mode #ASMSG #Poetry #Lifelessons

I’m in the “Can Do” mode

by Penelope Jones

 

.

I’m a fixer of other people’s trouble

It helps me stay in my perfect bubble

 

Pretending nothing’s wrong with my life

I have absolutely no strife

 

cough

BULLSHIT!

cough

 

Fine, you’re right

I don’t wanna fight

 

So, what if yesterday sucked

That’s an attitude I’ve already shucked

 

Seriously, if I dwell on the bad

I’ll forever remain mad

Or sad

 

Never being glad.

Hell, maybe one day I’ll even forgive my dad

 

Who knows what the future holds

All I know is I’m daring to be bold

 

So let’s take the fork in the road

Hurry, while I’m in the “Can Do” mode

 

You show me how it’s done

Come on,  let’s have some fun!
