To my future self with love

to my future self with love

coming down from heaven above

perfectly pleasant in every way

that is what my tombstones will say

Well adjusted and well-liked

that will be my future life

getting out and going places

seeing all those happy faces

My future self will really rock

always keep pickles in stock

my future self will really roll

If I live life with all  its heart and soul

Anxiety affects my concentration

Please give me some emancipation

To be free from worry, trek and tide

Everyday more confident in stride

To one day stand tall

Without any anxiety at all

 

Excited

I am excited that spring has sprung here

Naturally Excited today

Our squirrels are active our birds sing cheer

Branches blossoming in every way

Rain down water from the heavenly skies

Of sunshine and rainbows I never grow tire

Tornadoes abound on here weather wise

My hope that winter had long expired

Stupid Groundhog saw his shadow poor sap

We’ve had cold days and we’ve had hot ones too

Never know there’s truth in the weather map

I want to see bunnies and birds born new

Too bad there is still snow on the ground

I am looking for spring but it’s not found
