i try to take deep breaths
and allow the world to be
but i swear this life
will be the death of me

 the gurus say wake up
and simply let go
but i'm reminded
"as above so below"

storm clouds are brewing

overhead
i'm beginning to believe

we've been mislead
by social media, the news
and all the talking heads
the conflicting opinions and
fake stories they spread


i must reclaim my life
and cancel my subscriptions
to cable tv, facebook, twitter
and simply listen


to the healing sounds
of mother earth, 
the rivers and the trees

when i die,
let mother nature be
the death of me

  1. I’m finding Social media is just too much sometimes. It’s all very alarming. You’re right. We should all take back our hearts and minds and concentrate on the good stuff. Then maybe we’d all be content and actually help each other. Thank you for your thoughts 🙂🌼
