You used to think you had a choice
once, perhaps you did
Now, no longer is that available to you.

Now, as your eyes droop from sadness
and your heart sags with the weight of knowledge
You must stand up,
You must begin to sing.

Your voice will quiver
your unsteadiness will show
and people may turn away
because your song must only
contain what you know to be true.

Caste aside your fears
throw them into the ocean where they
will sink
down, down, down.
Feeding mermaids who will bear
them witness and re-purpose them
into love nests for dolphins.

Pluck the weariness from your brow
toss it to the birds who cackle and shit
Give them something more to excrete,
leaving your intestines empty and
ready to be fed something nurturing.

Sing louder and with gusto.
Make mistakes and laugh because
you are learning to be wholly alive.
Flaunt the wealth that is your mind
by singing in obscure languages.

Sing into the wind, into the night
into the minds that are closed around you.
Create harmony from curses.
Weave melodies from sadness.

Lift your voice in purity and release
the anger that thought its residence
was in your belly. Release it with love
knowing its’ place has ceased to be with you.


Be lifted, be well, be strong, be you.

I agree. No place but forward and upward to go!

"Flaunt the wealth that is your mind

Hell, yeah! Loved this poem, psyche.
Lots of affirmative posts recently about women saying goodbye to bullshit. It's a good sign.
Beautiful! Good to see you again. R
"Create harmony from curses"

So hard to do but you can do it.. I know..
HUGGGGGGGGGG
Your words are energizing and full of renewal. This is wonderful.
*"Cackles and shits" while loving this piece*

You did GOOD! ((Hugs))
this is great. and i know EXACTLY what you mean. i'm in the process of doing that myself right now...
Be lifted, be well, be strong, be you.

Yes! We all need to hear and heed these words.

Powerful empowering, wise and wonderful words!
How I love this, mypsyche! ~r
Wow again. I just wowed on pic of Poppi Icelands view.

This one got me the most:"Flaunt the wealth that is your mind
by singing in obscure languages"

Kickass piece, Mypsyche.
Stunning. And much needed for a new way in a new year.
Really very true and strong direction...
Wow. This is some damn fine writing, Drema. Strong, powerful piece.

ah, gonna try, re.
"Sing into the wind, into the night
into the minds that are closed around you.
Create harmony from curses.
Weave melodies from sadness.'


i cant sing when i am sad tho..............
Makes me feel like dancing in Jell0!
Somewhat of a Patchenesque directive but I seriously enjoyed the beetle juice oo this one, MP. Of course I was only one of 12 'guys'
at the ABBA concert that one afternoon.
Uncharacteristically far gone.
Zone poetry, here, friend.
This poem sings. My favorite two lines are:

"Create harmony from curses.
Weave melodies from sadness."

Nice to see this from you, Drema. And I can just see you singing, chin up, hair tossed back! Be strong, woman.
Right on! Thank you for this!
This resonates with me deeply. Choosing to forgive oneself isn't easy for some. I can relate.
"Weave melodies from sadness"
Wonderful Drema.
people may turn away
because your song must only
contain what you know to be true.

How long do we have to live before we finally recognize this truth, mpsyche? Thank you.
"Be lifted, be well, be strong, be you."

I think I should post that near my desk at work--it might help me get through the day.

Nice post, thank you... :)
I read this once a couple of weeks ago and liked it. I read it again tonight and appreciated it.

My favorite part "getting santa off the page" -laugh out loud
