When I have a day
that just plain sucks
I need to do something
proactive to help me
feel less useless
Cause nothing is empowering
like washing dishes or doing laundry
I want to make a statement
about my worth
proving that I exist outside
my little teeny tiny itty bitty bubble.
I stop to water my succulent plants
living dangerously in the fishtank
I found on the side of the road.
Think like a plant…hmm
If I could sprout a leaf
that filled with fluids and
remain attached to my stem
that would be momentous,
significant and earth-shaking
If a human could grow a green stem.
Imagine a green lump protruding
from my back that grows taller,
sprouts glorious leaves and
blooms a sunflower.
I would have bees and
hummingbirds following me around.
Or not, because that’s just creepy.
Sigh, I am going back under my rock
with my Kindle Fire to hide from
my anxiety and depression, pain,
extended respiratory illness,
my ex husband and his new girlfriend,
and this godforsaken winter weather.
Feel free to join me in my hibernation
All are welcome.
(Yes, I’m talking to you Sheldon.)
