Write the Wrong

Another year’s spent, the monies all gone

Lament the past, no, conclusion forgone

Divorce, a new lease, my job so long

Now is the time to write the wrong

-----------------------------------------------

Around every corner another new dawn

Sleep is a waste, stifling a yawn

Learning to laugh, entertaining a song

Now is the time to write the wrong

-----------------------------------------------

Finding new chapters that now belong

Banish the anger, no ex on the bong

Casting away the old boots I put on

Now is the time to write the wrong

-----------------------------------------------

Decisions mine, no just going along

Assertive, so be it, I am strong

No puppet toy, no more ping pong

Now is the time to write the wrong

-----------------------------------------------

Leave me alone, release the prong

I dress myself, today, just a thong

My body is mine, now go, be gone

Now is the time to write the wrong

-----------------------------------------------

Freedom I choose thrust headlong

Into the fire, no need to prolong

Life won’t wait all the livelong

Now is the time to write the wrong

Sometimes you just gotta live your life

..and now that I have composed myself and stopped howling at the moon over my lake and listened to one of my favorite songs by Mr. Petty - I must now sound like the unpretentious critic that I am (or strive to be) and say your writing, as presented in poem form, is always fresh, exciting, spontaneous and full of surprises!

And you certainly don't blink when you write this - and we are better off for your honesty, wit, savvy sexuality, and candor!!!!!

Well, I guess you are free at last, Amy. A bong and a thong in the same poem. Absolutely awesome. Go get 'em, tiger!

Today is always the beginning of the rest of your life. Enjoy your freedom. It is precious, to be treasured. Don't ever (again) sacrafise it for an unworthy man.

I'm there, MartieCoetser. Life is better not conceding to someone who does not have your best interest at heart. Alone, but not lonely is good...taking the time to explore and allowing things to come in their time is a much more exciting, but serene way to fly. Thank you for your great advice and support.

A great verse Amy and filled with determination and direction about the the future as you shove the past right out of the back of the truck. Loved the choice of songs too...one of my faves! Thanks for sharing...up and beautiful! WB

'Write the wrong" Great title, great perspectives and from a great writer as well. I like this one, you out do yourself with each new hub. When I was alone for 11 years, I discovered I liked myself, you will too, as you should, you are very likeable. Oh, the part you wrote about the ex: Hell, the anger at him is what kept me going for years. "The best revenge is to live well." Like thumbing my nose at not needing him, as he kept telling me I was nothing without him. LOL but I was a grudge holder. My bad!

Thank you, BobbiRant. I see the social worker in your comments. You always give me hope and very uplifting support. You are one of the people here that has made a real difference in my life.

My take on anger is to use it for good. I can be passive and anger motivates me. I think "mad" can be healthier than "sad", as sad is very defeatist. I do not want to be a "lump"; stationary, defeated, depressed and old. My tendency has always been independence, "thank you, I can get it myself", and I have managed to do that much better than my last ex. Despite his eye-rolling, I continued to write and gain some local notoriety at the Post-Dispatch and with that, confidence. I am a huge fan of yours, as you know, and look at you as a mentor, BobbiRant. I admire your fire, strong opinions, intellect and independence. I think it is a rare quality to maintain yourself, yet value your connection in a fulfilling, pivotal, vital and loving relationship. Thank you for helping me find my way.
