A Mess

A poem

By Rene PetersPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

I'm a mess,

it's something I've been trying to address.

It's what I do best,

it just makes me more depressed.


I'm a mess,

constantly being swallowed by sadness.

I never know what to do,

I want to not always feel blue.


I'm a mess.

I must confess

I'm trapped in my ways

of feeling unhappy for days.

    I walk for hours, preferably somewhere quiet, and just listen to nature. Appreciating nature and its little messages of hope in the trees and flowers and open spaces. I hope that writing helps to ease the stress. Or just dance and sing out loud.

  • So SO relatable! Loved your poem!
