I Feel Better

I feel better when,

I wake up refreshed.

Grateful for the day,

After blissful rest.


Knowing that I,

Didn’t waste time,

Trying to clean up,

The not-cleanable slime.


Grateful that I,

Learned a great lesson.

Friend poets like you here,

Are truly a blessing.


Happy to know,

That when some cry wolf,

Their true colors come thru,

As a result of the truth.


So, yes, I feel great!

For each bright, new day.

To write down in poetry,

What’s on my mind, to say.


Putting into words,

Good things and what bothers,

Dedicated to do so,

Without harm to others.


But, there are those,

Tried to trouble my mind.

I will defend myself,

In a few of my lines.


Feeling once again better,

The truth is just that,

Never making of myself,

Someone’s welcome mat.



    YES INDEED FRIEND ~ Friendship through Poetry is what MPS is all about. It is an innocent sharing & caring of HEARTS and MINDS. Because we communicate through the written word ONLY ~ none of the normal barriers exist ~ which is so so beautiful. So Gender ~ Age ~ Colour ~ Culture ~ Creed ~ Country ~ Class (things which often divide) are set to one side and we like each other and bond ~ through our mutual love and sharing and commenting on POETRY. Love the Structure and SUBJECT of your Poem ~ Your Poetic Friend as ever ~ BRIAN (UK)
