3 Poems About Breaking, Reconnecting, and Fixing

I had a pretty bad fallout with someone, but eventually, old flames were rekindled. For that I am truly grateful.

3 Poems About Breaking, Reconnecting, and Fixing

Processing emotions after a pretty horrid falling out:

Way down the street

I feel the day we did meet

And I hope and I know

You'll find life in a fresh snow

And I know and I hope

You love and live and die all fine

And that you don't stay wake and cry

There's a day a coming tomorrow

Where there won't be no sorrow

For you and me and him

As you sing your saviors hymn

And I hope and I cry

That you just don't die

Without the love so strong

And the bond so long

As I talk to my sacred shrink

And wonder just what you think

I know you're happy with what you did

And that's enough to seal that lid

Oh do you care of the nights

We'd be so alone with no plans

And we'd crawl out with a crazed ideal

Love the only thing we did feel

With the shock from an ancient eel

Oh boy where are you gonna go

And what will you hear

As I travel on down that road

And know you're gone for good

I hope one day our paths do cross

But I got friends, no need for pain

All those times I screamed in vain

Maybe you'll hear my rhyme

And think of that sealed away time

We'll find a fork in the street

And both go left, back to where we did meet

But until then my brother I hope you're set

With no fear and no present fret

You killed me twice

And I loved you thrice

I hope you're happy and you thrive

As I strive for the day we once felt

A day you'd cast of that old mink pelt

And realize I had all to give

You had no need for that rusted shiv

I hope they give all they can

You find your fabled holy land

I'll be there for you one day

Maybe then you'll learn to stay

. . .

Reconnecting (I begin to awkwardly rebuild our relationship (after some pretty serious alcoholism):

You made me cry, ya made me die and I won't lie, I loved it all

Your hair was long, the sun was bright, each day with a long night,

Music, smoke and words danced, our parents worried, and god we lived,

The town was ours, we owned it all, speeding round the turns of life,

We were young, we were ready, and we were wrong,

summer nights one day end, new ways round life's bend, alone, without friend,

No nights laced with liquor, deep in the woods, my secrets buried,

I painted my face in false martyrdom, we all wore masks in fear, the end was near,

But forward we marched, to the saintly cabin, resembling wisdom of Walden,

My will to live survived, but something must've died, the part I tried to hide,

We parted sadly, it was quick, but by no means painless,

Gone with the wind, gone was my friend, crown of thrones upon my head,

I was no Jesus, a plastic false riding on the dashboard of your car, forward we marched,

But hey that's ok, I used to be liquor to kill the pain, now it's love,

And one day I'll get on up there, way over the hill, be right where I want to be,

There's a sun shinning, full of life, a shadow of a cabin hidden behind,

Life is right, as right as can be, after all we've seen,

Although our eyes have aged, just for me, see the sun before it fades,

It hasn't expired just yet.

. . .

We have rebuilt... but it is still strange and estranged among us all:

Two lovers set adrift in life,

Effortlessly moving forward,

Yet a weight stayed behind,

Tried to stay so blind,

There was a little spot,

Oh so grand,

In each of their hearts,

Still full and young,

Waiting to see nostalgic bliss,

Of a unique blend,

With robust emotion,

And a great deal of passion,

From sweet summer days,

Of sweat and steam,

Where all was warm,

All was home,

Bright days laced with hope,

Of New Years,

Carefree waltz's among the wood,

Enjoying all there was,

And all that could be,

But that was long ago,

When the sun shone bright,

Now it is a distant memory,

Of the days in the grass,

With no shoes or worry,

Far away, taken in winter's whisper,

Now a small love lingers,

Flowing forth at times of reunion,

But otherwise unknown,

A beautiful care,

An eternal empathy,

Of care and hope,

For themselves,

And for all,

How great to be a human,

On this fine morning,

Full of reunion.

. . .

I've developed long term memory issues over the past few years, so I tried to capture everything I wanted to remember from that time that mattered.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
