Swimming

We are all filledWith billions

Of tiny stars

Swimming

In our purest

Form 

Of the conception 

Of life

Beginning again

With every moment

Any movement 

A gentle

Single touch

Has these stars

Swirling 

Stealing from our

Welcome heart

Is why it

“Three Generations” #amwriting #poetry #poem #ThankfulTuesday

Amazing!!❤️ TY Aspen!❤️☀️🎶

Generations~

Most think of separation.

Differences

References

Changes

Instead~of the ranges.

A perspective and view

Not just old news, but

Funny hairstyles

And hard-fought miles.

Dreams tossed aside

Rather than the courage to stand beside.

Those that were born~

As they lay to rest those before & mourned.

A circle, a pattern, a face

Look in the mirror, it will never be erased.

Generations~hand in hand~

Squeeze life & risk to stand~

Side by side as you face the sun

Giggle & discover how to have fun.

Age does not measure~

The person next to you,

For remember this moment~

Oh yes, they are a most rare treasure.

Know~Time is but a joke~

Man made~

One day~ ‘Pull off its cloak’.

~

Listen to their songs

All of your notes will belong.

Sit & hear the stories

Of their truths, lies, hopes, and glories.

Those wrinkled hands cradled you at…

‘Never Enough’ #amwriting

AspenBrave

Doesn’t matter

What I say

How I try

When I attempt

Their message

Is always

The same:

‘Never enough’

~

To a point

I hid behind the blanket

Wanting to swallow a bottle

That would become

A bullet proof vest

If only for the short distance

To a fake home

Where I never

Belonged

~

But it hit me

When has it been

Any different?

~

Hammer

Hammer

Hammer

Nail me in

~

Sometimes

You stop caring

Not because

You don’t

But

Because

They

Never

Did

~

You

Awaken

To

Where

You

Are

Just

A

Burden

~

Despised

~

Some

Discarded batch

Of memories

They

Would

Rather

Not

Remember

~

You are their

Never enough

And

There is

No where

To run

Not

Even

From

Yourself

~

So

A

Piece

Of

You

Dies

Again

And

Again

And

Again

~

Until

One

Day

You

Have

The

Guts

To

Get

Tough

~

Civilizations have deemed Poetry to be the ‘highest form of communication’. Poets are the historians, storytellers, fools, Kings, queens, pawns of society. Poets give voice to the lost, unspoken echoes of those fellow Souls that will never be heard without them. Poets change the world.

Sadly, Twitter appears to be targeting various Poets repeatedly. The reasons are not clear. I challenge Twitter to examine their program & make certain just because someone hits a ‘report’ prompt, it is NOT warranted to take away a person’s right of the First Amendment of The Constitution Of The United States of America, which includes, but is not limited, to Freedom Of Speech.

As Subscribers to your brilliant forum for communication globally, We, as Poets, have and do respect Twitter. There is no doubt, We dominate a tremendous cornerstone of your empire. We helped build it one word at a time. One Human Being…
