Owl Poetry & Prose

A Clenched Fist…

My brain feels like that – a clenched fist

It’s been under pressure, strain and a lot of shit

That really it could do without

But no

That’s not life

People say it’s your attitude and response that matters

Yea but it’s not like you can toss out things

Emotions, situations and reality

Not when your reality has some dire implications

Sure, can be “positive” but not at the expense of being deluded

Depth matters but at what price?

Tough questions

The brain needs some respite, soon but not quite

Till the next tide and the next

Till death, and hopefully, rest
