I Am Shaky Today


I am shaky today-
Why I am not sure
But after all I have been through
And after all I have done
And all I have learned
And all the many times I have gotten through shakiness in the past
I am shaky today
As if all my life and its lessons have been for nothing
And I cannot control a simple mood-
I am shaky today
Like the earth might open up and swallow me forever -
I am shaky –Shaky-
After all these years
I have learned nothing-
I am so so ashamed-
Shaky still now while writing this poem.

    I hope you feel better soon, Shalom. The earth is fat and happy- content upon her numerous disaster victims. She does not to eat again- not soon anyway. (Report) Reply
