Heading back to work
No more sleeping late
No more learning how to twerk
Perhaps I meet someone new
Who isn’t an insensitive jerk
I will admit I loved just being home
Watching Star Trek with Captain Kirk
No one telling me what to do
No one around me going berserk
But money must be made
Hopefully with some extra perk
But seriously I love being a doctor
And I’m glad to be back at work
Who else also loves their job? I’ve been off work since 2/2021 so getting back into the grind is a bit tough but I do it for my patients.
Thinking just thinking
Compelled to just blink
Blinking and blinking
Yet still out of sync
Shifting and drifting
No line and no time
Lost my anchor to the vast open sea
No captain and no crew. It’s only me.
Sinking just sinking
Emotions rising vehemently
Searching just searching
Need strength to just be
Drowning just drowning
In my own salty tears
I’ve found no one to calm all my fears.
But alas the lifesaver
It comes to rescue me
Was it always there?
Did I not notice in my own despair?
Lifesaver oh lifesaver
What says thou to me?
I hope you enjoyed my poem. Sending hugs from Brooklyn. Sometimes when life becomes difficult and you feel like you are drowning-don’t forget to search for the lifesaver. It can be a friend, a therapist or a higher power. You are never truly alone.
Love you all Guady G
To age is a blessing
To age alone is not
You were kind to others and they forgot
You wonder what the F was missing but then you remember. . .
Once upon a time you were a famous movie star
Now that you are older no one knows who you are
You had so many fans but not one close friend
Now you are alone when it is almost the end
You ignored your family and your
You only wanted the limelight and the company of fake friends
You walked the red carpet and never took your mother or father
Instead you took some glamorous other
You attended luxurious events but never with those that helped you to rise
Today you are in hospice waiting for your demise
I guess the lesson here is to appreciate how you came to be
Never forgetting family, friends and sincerity
Fame, fortune and being in the limelight
Is worth nothing if you must walk sad and alone into the night.
With all my love Guady G
I’m so tired of resting thus I will take a rest.
I will rest in chaos because resting in peace is eternal and I want to live.
With all my love Guady G
Isn’t the English language interesting? Resting in peace is associated with the dying and the dead. Has anyone ever said Rest In Peace to a living person going to rest from a chaotic day? Hmm.
The more I learn about you
the less I know about myself
Sending you hugs from Brooklyn
