Mental

Button pop

Gas bubbled gut

Caused by the anxious feeling

Of leaving your comfort zone

Why can’t I stay where I am

With my box of chocolates

One hair out of place triggers me

Stay in the safety zone don’t try anything else

But the fun on the other side I want that

The happiness I want that

We screen for covid

But not for our overall mental health

Rain Talks

Drip drip mumbled words

Time to be one with nature

And enjoy the whispers from God

Silence

Silence

Listen to the plops

Sometimes the calmness of a sentence holds more bite

Take the time to focus on things around you without going into a fright

The rain talks

It turns things dark and ruin plans

It makes you run and miss your tan

Splitter splatter drop drop drop

The rain talks
