Grumblings and BBQs

I wrote Look in the Mirror as a follow up to Lost Dreams and a lot of the comments that people posted. It is flattering to know that so many of you related to what I wrote. I write mostly from my own head but others experiences to play into them as well. The poem today was written right after Look in the Mirror as I wasn't have the best morning. Grumblings with daughter number 2 and the husband left me .... well grumpy and the following spilled out. You will be glad to know the day did end on a brighter note. We went to a BBQ with both daughters, although youngest daughter whined so much we dropped her off at a friends house. The rest of the afternoon was very pleasant, sun shinning and not too hot. I was in a Trivial Pursuit challenge and made it to the finals and lost on a sushi question...sushi refers to the rice by the way.Was gutted as sushi is one of my favorite foods, must learn more about what I am eating I suppose.

Anyway, I am posting the poem since it was written and valid at the time and hopefully some of you can relate again.


I'm  having one of those days again,
Every effort made is just a pain.

Leave me alone and let me be,
The fog over my head is suiting me.

Sometimes it's best to feel the hurt,
Then speak your mind no matter how curt.

Damn the reprecusions, it shouldn't matter,
The honesty shouldn't make the loved ones scatter.

If they run, then fuck them all,
I wasn't meant to be, I won't crawl.

Tomorrow is always another day,
If I work hard I'll make my way.

No truer friend is there than me.
So stick around and you will see.

I pull my self up off the ground,
And bounce right back sane and sound.

I love the last four lines.

Glad the rest of your day got better!

PS. Yes, sushi is the rice. Sashimi is the fish.

I love it. Wondering, though. Did you mean "It" wasn't meant to be?

Vodka Logic said...

Mrs4444 probably meant to be IT but kinda like it the way it is too.

thanks xx

Oh we can totally feel your emotions in that poem - and sometimes it is better to FEEL it!

So glad your day got better & congrats for making it to the TP finals!!!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Oh yeah, I've definitely had days like the poem!

Nice to 'meet' you, I've been meaning to get over here when I noticed you on some of my favorite blogs as well as here I am! And I'll be back! :)

You have a very creative mind. I love reading original poetry!

I am also glad that you day turned out better than it started.

Daughters can be such a pain! I don't like to think that I put my mother through this many mood changes but something tells me I did. I am definitely "paying" for it now:)

Have a great Labor Day and a good short work week!

Another follower from SITS - I also have seen you on some of my fav blogs and glad to finally get on board.


my sentiments exactly - major PMSing, everyone within sight pissing me off, finally they are all in bed and it is just me and my comp!

"Sometimes it's best to feel the hurt, Then speak your mind no matter how curt."

As an opinionated, outspoken person, I don't think people realize how often I "feel the hurt."
Lots of people can relate to this piece.

Praise, no matter how often you receive it, is always great to hear... This poem is fabulous and no truer words have been spoken...

Keep up the great vibes!
