How do i love thee….?
I recently subscribed to a poem-a-day through poets.org and let me just say, it has been quite fulfilling. Daily poems can get annoying and take up much needed space in your in box, but every once in a while I read a great one.
I have been writing poetry since I was a young lady and have always found that it was a therapeutic way for me to work through issues I may have had. As an adult, I read way more than I write, but I appreciate literature in almost any form. Poetry is something that I think isn’t exposed enough.
The first poem I felt that really moved me is the Gestalt Prayer by Frederick S. Perls.
I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I,
and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
The month of April is National Poetry month! Enjoy, and if you can, give that link a subscription and open your world up to more of the world.
That’s the fresh perspective…
