My Blog Lyric Fire: NaPoWriMo #7- Hidden Agenda

NaPoWriMo #7- National Poetry Writing Month

 

Hidden Agenda

 

sharply pressed suit

brief case brimming with important documents

colgate smile charming many constituents

hands absent of calluses

heart carved in stone

 

late nights filled with nothing and no one

you take to the web

screen lights up giving you access to the world

you’re so powerful during the day

but deflated feelings in the dark

turn you into a cyber monster

 

stories about crime and tragedy turn you on

political leaders trying to do good also are on your radar

your crisp white shirt is now wrinkled and thrown in the corner

you take to typing

 

negativity and hate is spewed as you gleefully watch

scrolling down the page people admonish you

your heart beats fast

you know you’re making an emotional impact

 

robotic and wooden

jaded and chilled to the bone

hands without calluses

but destined to die alone

  2. Hey there… Yeah, it made me sad to write it, but after reading so many horrible comments on news sites, I felt prompted to process my feelings poetically.

  3. Woah! Oh my…let’s chat (really, lol). xo

  4. Hey Creative Cookie! Yes, whoa indeed! That’s what I say every time I go to the comments sections of a news article looking to see what people are thinking about certain issues. More often than not, there are some engaging and constructive comments, but they are sometimes outweighed by the negative ones. It makes me very concerned about our society.
    Chat soon mama!
