Fight Back

I am weak to mental attacks Who do your hurt when there is not one around Voices in my head Cracking Under the pressure of ill-content How do I fight back Where do I run to When I am my own enemy Self-doubt sets in And I am no longer in the running To win…

Day 7: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

Today, I have reached a new plane of reality. Lol, that was a bad joke. I am starting to gain muscle and may I just say that it is refreshing. I was in a lot of pain today, so I took the easy route and did a stretching and meditation. 15 minutes of meditation and…

Day 6: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

The lizard pose strikes again! This time I was ready to stretch my nether regions. My hips took the burn of the stretch and afterward I did have to rest them for a bit but it was better than before. Today was an 18-minute practice and it had a lot of stretching and breathing. I…

Day 5: 30 Days of Yoga With Down Dog

My hips, inner thighs, and crotch hates me and for a very good reason too. I have never in my life stretched my crotch this much before. The pigeon pose has a unique power of stretching all that is good and holy about my body. This was a 15-minute session with a lot of slow…

They say the hardest part of a journey is the third day because you’re probably thinking by now I don’t want to do this it’s kind of boring and I would rather lay down and not do any exercise at all. So on day 3, I did a 6-minute combination of yoga and a meditation…

Writer’s Block

The words are stuck in my throat I go to write Nothing comes out Blank screens stare at me I should be writing Yet the words fail me The refuse to come Tears fail Depression sets in I try again Banging my head on the keyboard The words have fail me There are no poems…

Day 2: 30 Days of Yoga with Down Dog

I really hate the lizard pose. It is painful, it stretches my parts-unknown, and I do not like the fact that it hurts. However, it kind of feels good after the long stretch that it entails. I’m not good at stretching and that is something I probably need to work on. I’m noticing on the…

Music Full Of Sorrow

A violin plays in an empty field A whispering sound takes flight Slow to rise Into the night Gaining strength to be more than noise D minor Blooms On the forgotten notes of summer The treble Has found a place to belong In a field that leads no where A violin fills the air With…
