Commit

Would like to find a way

Till I’ve means to get a home
For son, and me to live
For a new place to stay

He isn’t as committed as me

Time seems to run away

Never at home, busy as a bee

While I try to find a way

Survive

.

Choking on food

I couldn’t breathe

No one at home

And I was alone

Gasping with tears on my face

Was it the final moment

I was going to face

A cough dislodged the bite

Another second to exhale

And I survived to tell the tale

(Sheen-May2017)

Impression

First impressions don’t last with me

Why is that you tell me

Feelings of disappointment linger, and hold

Inside my heart, and they sadden me

Shown your true colors at last

Wish that had happened when you first met me

It’s like I have descended within the pit of hell

Burning bright is the fire consuming me

(Sheen-May2017)

Adrift


A nearby river in Hartford. Photo taken by daughter.

As I fell into a river

And was soon adrift

My brother pulled me out

He was really very swift

Rescued me from drowning

Gave back my life as a gift
