Insanely beautiful

We’ve gone insane but we’re beautiful

Us grownups that look through camera filters and media for direction and a sense of self

We don’t know how to have relationships that don’t involve an app

What happened to us?

We hardly exist beyond our posts and pictures

We’re lost in our own minds and those are filled with social media and illusions

Smoke and mirrors to disguise our pain

Coast to coast it’s hurricanes, and fire dust

I sat on the sidewalk with my grandson today

He played with his plastic bugs while I longed for the days when those things were my entire world

God if only we could get back some hope, I would throw away my phone and bathroom scale

I would play with plastic bugs and eat ice cream until my tummy hurt

I would ignore the smoke and hurricanes and just be

Insanely beautiful

Writing for me is very cathartic and meditative. I have found it to be an outlet for inner conflict, doubt, worry, joy, love, peace, and the entire range of human emotion.
