High on the List of things I hate (Throwback)

Standard

High on the list of things I hate

Broken rulers, being dreadfully late

Burning something or worse leaving it uncooked

Going to a hotel only to find out they’re booked

Self- help books and a huge flood

When my brand new shoes get caked in filthy mud

 

Cruelties towards an animals or human soul

Finding out your favorite team lost by one goal

When your dress tears apart at the seams

You wish that it was a sequence of bad dreams

(Yes I even hating the wishing, the lies we have to tell ourselves to stay okay)

When nature’s fury causes us to question our fate

These are high on the list of things I hate

 

When you end up questioning everything you’ve ever done

If you have not, it is time you’ve begun

When you look in the mirror and

You truly don’t love it, you take your hands and pray

When you have a craving for something and the store is fresh out

When you’re baby cousin does nothing but screech and shout

 

But something I don’t hate per say but

Something that makes me cry when it occurs this way

Is when I am sad

And no one knows why

Instead of advice or comfort of any kind

They sit there stuck on rewind

No knowing that the only thing worse

Then any problem, burden or curse

Is facing  this world alone

We Love

Standard

Processing it brings both pain and understanding

The fight, again, a misunderstanding, turns to fury

Struggling with burning tears

Furiously understanding brings calm

Deep love of my parents comes suddenly

All the Love they have

It makes me think differently of

The big, terrible fight

Who was wrong and who was right

Is not the point and doesn’t matter

Peace is more important as well as Love

The point is we fight

But more importantly

We Love

We wake up and make coffee

We go to work, school, volunteering, church, the theater, for ice cream

We Love

Despite the hurt I feel

And the tears currently flowing on my cheeks

From the unnecessary fight

We love

That is the most important thing

And everything can get better

Because

We Love
