The Sink Hole

I will not be labeled

As damaged or disabled

I won’t let myself think

I’ll just go down like

Water gurgling in a sink

I try to envision my life

With more purpose

Than “useless”

Sometimes this is

An exercise

Quite fruitless

I won’t slide down

That gurgling sink

And I know that’s what

A lot of people


But I’ve proved them

Wrong before

Not just once

But even more

I won’t quietly go down

That gurgling sink

I have more words

To say

More words

I must ink

I’m not here

To kick up a stink

I just want to make

More people think

Before I go down

That gurgling sink

    • Haha!πŸ˜‚ Yes, at least the good thing about writing is you can do it well past your retirement, I’m sure!! This poem was more about being physically handicapped or disabled, but I love your perspective too😁 It just shows how everybody has a different view. Excellent and thank you!πŸ™‚πŸ™

    • I think it’s a personal thing, whether you want to repeatedly be counseled and heal from picking things over or struggle with acceptance maybe, but for me, personally, I heal or deal with it by shutting it down. It doesn’t do me well to keep reliving the trauma or grief. I’m glad you called your people clients not patients either, it all helps to stem that “victimized” feeling of not being good in the world. There are so many people affected in the world but we don’t all have to be sick because of it, but instead become strong!πŸ™πŸ™‚
