From Found Words Rise the Tasks of Messengers (Part 2)

Two more poems inspired by words in the book “Happiness is an inside job” by Dr. Sylvia Boorstein. Read From Found Words Rise the Tasks of Messengers (Part 1) for the background and first three poems.

p. 12
in recognition of myself
I fall embittered
into accommodating
just to accommodate

this natural connection to suffering
is my declaration of life

p. 12-13
a possible peace
through wisdom learned
controls
inevitable contention

Creating these makes me feel very wise, even though I’m just rearranging words and adding others. Perhaps that’s just what poetry is: the moving of words. Like those little puzzles where you have to slide the tiles around to make a picture, I slide words around until I find the poem that was already there.

Don’t bother me – I’m busy cultivating my Tortured Genius persona.
