We’ll Take What We Can Get

1ede271fdeec0b328eb9b3293c6d8035

We’re not
in it to win it we’re
just trying hard to
cut our loss
clutching the time that’s
left
playing life so very close
to the chest
wondering when where
can we get off?


Well, it’s Monday again. Sure, we all gotta rise but we might not particularly feel too inclined to shine. We’re just trying to go through the motions while trying to work out how best to make them stop.

Hope you liked the little scrap above. If ya did, feel free to stop by and comment below. Good to hear from some kindred souls now and again.

As always, here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.

Back To Full Steam

…Or scream, in most our cases.

If you’re on the same schedule as me, it means you’re back to your first full week of the year at work. My condolences.

Poems will start back up next week but, till then, I though I’d post a link to my previous posts below. If you’re looking for a little extra  ‘I have no shits left to give’ motivation, be sure to visit my Pinterest board below- you’ll find yourself in good company.

Off To the Races

Face it
We’re all lined up
stuck at the gate
alarms go off and
we chase it

Hounds horses
humans
led by with
jockeys horns
lures

We can accept
love hate it
but in the end
we’re all just
retired worn
jaded.

Another day another dollar, folks. Monday’s come back around the track again but, never fear, I’ve got that little scrap up there and then, of course, a little bit of humor always stuck down here. Hope you enjoyed it and, if you’re looking for something to help you ease off the reigns, be sure to check out my old Monday poems and pintrest board via the links below.

As always: here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.

Don’t Go Quietly Into That Good Morning

Rise
writhe
and riot

We don’t have to settle for
lives of regret
longing
and quiet

We can still
seize
grapple
and grasp

lost tendrils of
hope

the us we
remember

those fleeting shades of
our past.

Mornin’, folks. Looks like Monday is at it again. Still, despite being stuck on that weekly wheel, we don’t have to just go with the grind. Wrote a little something that I hope reminds you that there’s still plenty of time to do what you wanna do and be who you wanna be. That’s right, it’s just a lil’ Monday motivation from the likes of me. Hope you enjoy.

Enough Said

Stuck In The Middle

 

I’m in some strange state
between life and death
some strange place between
failure and success
it’s the middle ground of
life
and middle age is rife
with battles old, new
challenges never met
where each and and every
morning
I war cry a sigh and raise
my standard, my banner, of
regret.

__________________________________________

Time for some Monday mourning again. Reaching that middle ground and feeling like, perhaps, there’s a little something to be said for it.

Well-Meaning Monday

a283b29f3fd3374662d8d2f699d6aa2d

No good deed goes unpunished
no dreamer finds time to sleep
and we of the tender hearts
are only
that way from being beat

We’re taking the high road to our
personal hells just
digging our own graves while
trying to dig them their wells

They say the road to hell’s paved with good intentions. Personally, I think that applies to most highways, too. Yet to find someone making an early morning commute who wouldn’t rather be some place they ain’t.

Start Again. Together.

Does not get better than this

Does not get better than this

I’m shoveling dirt
out of this hole and
onto my back
40 hours at a time
5 days a week
at best

and I’m watching life
out of the
corner of my eye
the years just
keep on
stepping and gathering
flowers
and passing me by.

Well, it’s enough to make
anyone biter
and I cant
judge no matter how

hard I try

but rather
sing a cadence
a worker’s song
that makes
the hours go smoother
a little sweet
something
just to know you’re
not
alone.

Monday again, folks. Well, at least for this one I’m happy to say I’m back. Not happy for it, of course, but just happy to be back among the writers and readers. Been far too long.

Well, if you’ve been by before, you know the drill: I’ve got some things to try and brighten your Monday listed down below. If you’re new, I’m happy to have you. Check out the links below. Might just help sooth that Monday misery if you’re just getting started to drudge through the week like me.

Well, no mater how it goes, here’s to hoping that your day flies on by and that you have something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight!
