Freshman - 1,420 Points (24 January 1961 / South Africa)

On The Inside


Came home deeply sunk in the gloom of chemical
depression, nothing helped, not even finding three
new T-shirts for the holiday season - you allowed
me to swim until I had enough - three vegetables,
chicken- the miracle took place again; - my mind
moved from utter depression to total contentment

I pasted glitter and glue on my ears & blue police
T-shirt, the kids professed to be shocked but it had
to be a Spiel they’re used to me now; reflecting on
the day in which I had listened to endless yodelling
on YouTube which led me to conclude that it can
only be taken in little bits only - Joan Sutherland

Made me realise one had to be in the right mood -
when sinking into depression neither dancing nor
singing on Britain’s Got Talent has any effect; the
change has to happen on the inside, after a happy
meal my insides have changed and once again I
feel like a young maiden – it is all happening

On the inside…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
