First World Problems.
An idea omitted and replaced with affinity towards identical thinking.
Established through the perception of others.
Terminology that has been joylessly expunged from souls, replaced with envy and greed.
A subject caught up, lost, and drifted away like stubborn waves of the sea.
A word gone to hibernate for the winter, never to return from its gloomy cave.
Gained from ownership of material items, manifested through flashy colors and gaudy gadgets.
These ideals of the present are the demise of our future.
Here is a sonnet I wrote about the sun. I hope you enjoy.
A sonnet by Angela Prendergast.
Morning, gleaming bright, blinding
The middle child of the great beyond
Darkness drifts away in fright
Summer flowers; delicacy grows so fond.
Soundless, it rises and falls
Squinty eyes, liquid tears below
A march of the day, standing tall
Kisses all, from friend to foe.
Bright, bold, beacon of hope
An endless cycle to return
Lambent, luminous; all awoke
Steady, lessons for each child to learn.
More than the size of this sphere; fervent, bold
You allow human life to behold.
Today is a rainy day in PA. Thinking back to brighter times. I am so thankful for my followers and this lovely writing community. Xoxo. Much LOVE.
After much growing and maturing, I have learned to put the breaks on my emotional reactions. I am a born and raised Italian.. it is in my blood to react quickly and become sassy! However, the past few years have taught me a lot. Pause.
After many experiences with irrational people, I have evolved. I was tired of fighting back with people who could never be wrong. Now I no longer give a reaction to negativity. I think it is extremely important to remember to PAUSE. Do not let emotions cloud judgement and reactions to minor annoyances. If someone is irrational, you will never win. Playing into their games and reacting will spark up their fire. Don’t give their narcissistic drama the time of day or your precious energy; that is YOUR energy and they do not deserve to drain it from you. I remember this by repeating the word “unbothered” to myself in these tempered situations. I challenge you to do the same.
Just tell them to SWERVE and walk away.
Much love. XoXo. Angela
