Ain’t Life Grand In A Topsy-turvy World?

Ain’t Life Grand In A Topsy-turvy World?

Ain't Life Grand in a Topsy Turvy World?

Ain’t Life Grand in a Topsy Turvy World?

Words escape you
Spirit misaligned
Flesh tense
Entities lose their gleam
Energies subside
Day by Day
Can’t breathe
Only build up steam
Can’t see
Can’t grow
Can’t cultivate
Creativity insurrected
The Law of Nature palpitated

Did you envision that?
No I didn’t
Did you do that?
You did
Who is to blame?
When the one you trust
Can’t be trusted
With their own mind
Brain chemicals
All shook up
Or just a little off kilter?
Or Psyche is quite intact
But Heart wants something more
A little helter skelter?

So they go to the bitter chagrin
Against themselves
Against you
Lovers and Loved ones
Get caught in the debacle
Heart strings over-stretched
Taken hostage
Left to mend pieces
In the uncertainty of the self-made lunacy

As chaos rages on
Things change
Rainbows seem to be birthed
Atop the Ruins
Sometimes  sweet
And savory
Sometimes kind
Sometimes make you feel
Even sublime
Like life will take a turn
For the better

Then Whoosh!
Everything jerks back
To architecting tears
Orchestrating fears
Instigating mental apprehension
What else could go wrong?
Could upside down be the norm
And you are the one forlorn
Out of your mind?
To want anything but this…

Child you may feel
You are the only one
Putting up a resistance
Fighting social
And communication
But don’t lose hope
In finding others
That seeks harmony too
That thrives from a better way to be
For Life is not all that grand
In a Topsy-turvy world

    It’s not a perfect World by so many thousand miles, but we have to try and keep our heads up in the chaos. Deep poem.

    Thank you for sharing the poem. I enjoyed it. Chaos is scary when we are deep in it’s hold. The trick is I think, to not fight. Chaos forces growth and change when we can’t see that it might be a good thing for us.
