Sonnet; Life updates (3/3)


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

I hope, through all of this, that I have learned

Some lessons to apply to later life,

So I may save fond friends from future strife,

And loathe myself a little less. I turned

My eyes upon myself, at point of knife,

From others' viewpoint: hard. It changed my life

And helped me greatly. That's a win hard-earned.


I'm bad at people-ing--worse than I'd thought:

My trauma made that vivid, that's for sure!

And I can understand: intentions pure

Don't mitigate the harm. Now, it makes sense.

The repercussions woke me up; I'm brought

To mindfulness.

I'm walking nearly normally by now,

But that was taxi…
