Scattered Emotions

by Jennifer L Banks

Many feelings and emotions
scattered on the floor
pick one up,
look at it,
put it back down beside me
another one, hold it in my hand,
feel it's form,
put it on the shelf.

pick up another, tossing
it over my shoulder,
don't dwell on it.
pick up another one
*sigh*, Toss.....
into the closet it goes.....

pick up this special one,
been eyeing it for awhile,
*smile*, *sigh*
Curious exploration lately
of that emotion, not quite
sure what it is
or where it will lead.....

That one has been so
guarded for so long, you
don't know what to do with it.
Put it safely on my pillow
for later.

Sweep the floor
of the scattered emotions
the important ones stashed
for another time.

Hi Jennifer, It's very good and clever. Scattered Emotionals. Sometimes we all have our days. Don't be so hard on yourself. A good friend to lead an ear helps. And maybe leaning and reaching out to the Lord. It wouldn't hurt either. Sometimes ya have to pick yourself up and dust off. Ans pick up the pieces and contiune on with life. Life goes on. Bless ya. Peace & Joy, Jean.
