When Life’s Out Of Rhythm

I woke this morning enveloped in fear

my mind unsettled the reasons unclear

My rooms were familiar pictures on the walls

a tapping noise at my window as the rain falls


I put on my robe but it seems to tug

slid into my slippers that are no longer snug

pasting my bathroom I cautiously looked in

I’m feeling a silly now but not ready to grin


In to the kitchen where’s my favorite coffee cup

splattering across the floor, hitting with a thump

Now standing there thinking how the day began

there’s a broom in the closet that I’m not going in


Pouring fresh coffee hoping to change my luck

but it didn’t taste right it was in the wrong cup

I started a fire to warm the chill in the morning air

then sat down in my chair out the window I stare

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
