Poetry Wednesday: Normal

The prompt is “Normal” I got the prompt from Poetic Asides by Robert Lee Brewer. It’s fun and you should feel free to try it if you are so inclined! You do have to sign up to the forum to leave a poem in the comments, but it is so worth it.

Here is my try for today:

 

For my mom who’s been there, done that.

We’re All Fine Here

 

You’re driving me mad

and I don’t quite know

what to do.

 

Be angry and yell

and leave?

 

Continue the passive

resistance,

digging

in

my

heels

so stubbornly

refusing to see what is right there?

 

Or act like

everything

is

normal.

 

Pretend I don’t see

the women

the drinking

the late nights

the insanity

you’re taking our family through?

 

But then, what am I thinking?

 

This is normal for you.
