Life Around The Corner

Choosing Life and Operating Happiness

Let’s Go

I’m shy,
I know why.
I don’t want to be.
Human interactions
Frighten me.
I’m afraid
To be stung, like a bee.
To be drenched, like a flea.
I wish I knew how
To exude glee,
And feel pleasant
To simply disagree.
I want to have no regrets
After I am being me.
I don’t want to feel a threat,
Or that I got someone upset.
To be covered up in sweat,
While I smoke a cigarette.
I want to feel warm, like tea,
Made right to the perfect degree.
I want to always be sweet,
Not salty like the sea.
Be truly open,
Because I hold the key.
I want to embrace,
Like I’m a tree.
I want to laugh
Because I feel free.
At times I feel
I’m shy only when it comes to
Being happy,
I don’t want anyone to feel crappy.
I don’t want to seem like I gloat,
I hide my fortune under a coat.
This poem is getting way too long,
Maybe I can put it into a song.
Sometimes I invent the need for empathy
Where it doesn’t belong,
At the expense of being me
And that is just wrong.
If I am really strong, then
I want to lead people along
With me,
For us all to be free.
I can’t be shy
If I want to fly.
A bird is completely exposed
In the sky.

      Thank you, dear Jeff 😊😊🙏🏼💗


    It’s like a song
    Probably a rap ☺️
    It was so smooth, your poem was flowing freely like a hot knief on the butter.
    I like the choice of words flea
    Glee, disagree, gloat, coat wow!!
    No offense, how long does it take to write a poem??
    I know this is very personal, you might have this poem in your mind but you even had these words coming to you at the moment you thought about it??
    Also no offense, fat guy workout doesn’t recommend smoking

      🤣🤣🤣 fat guy is right and I actually quit smoking over a year ago. But the word was good and it is something I used to do for years.
      Thank you so much Devang, I am so happy you like it!
      This poem I wrote in two pieces, one last night and one this morning. Altogether maybe 30 minutes. Some poems takes a few hours, some I have to sleep over. My mind and emotions are so “alive” I can have a look outside and the smell of the air would write a poem through me. When this happens it is very quick.
      Sometimes I would write a poem that doesn’t rhyme and then look at it and the replacement rhyme words appear in my mind when I look at it as whole. It’s very different with each poem 😊 but do feel free to pick my brain it’s definitely no offense

        That’s actually a very difficult process and I highly respect you for this. 🙇🏻‍♂️
        Don’t take it wrong, but try to sing this poem as a rap, it would be fun.
        Your work is beautiful and your knowledge is wide.
        Best wishes

        Thank you so much! I will do it. I am working on this.
        Also, I understand. When I write research papers or for example now I’m writing a business plan. I sit with so many sources of information, read, analyze, ponder, probably like you do for your blog posts. It is a very different process, it takes a long time and much thought over how to build a structure and what content to include.. I understand 😊

        Blogging is very hard, and even harder when you do regularly.
        Let me know if I can be of any help

    There’s something soothing about the way the lines move, it does remind me of a song.💖 I liked this, honest and still cheeky.

        Your writing can be so honest it makes me cry…”exposed in the sky” 😥😥😥

        Thank you!!!! 🥺🥺
        This feeling of something being so simple and so brutal and so beautiful and so painful at the same time. I’m glad we can share it

        Yes are very inspiring 👍👍

        Thank you! You are too, Jim! And you’re definitely making my morning happy. Sometimes you erase poems but they still appear in my feed for a while and they are too so honest and beautiful and touching. I am just too late to like or comment. I like your honesty too

        Thanks…I’m always editing and changing my mind…I often move things I’m not sure about to the bottom of the blog. And I put things in order of popularity. I’ll try to leave things in place if I can. I look at the whole blog as one big poem….😎😎

      8. Tut Yashar Avatar

        Ohh I see. So I’ll know now 😊 it is one big poem, I agree. Be sure, your writing is beautiful
