  1. may i suggest another game
    for all you poets to play?

    can we have a poetical riposte
    on how you are today?

    there are no rules to speak of
    so this won't take much time

    can you just reply to this
    with rhythm and in rhyme?
  2. today i'm feeling mostly fine
    although the weather grey
    but i don't feel suicidal
    so i will live another day

    Fear and terror in my gut
    Joy in my body
    Love in my heart
    Anxiety and worry in my mind
    Wonder and awe of creation
    Willingness to learn
    Determination to grow
    Intense creativity in my aura
    Connected to the stars
    I am a mighty and powerful mix of I don't know what
    I need saving from myself and don't know why
    It appears I will live another day
    But I want to feel safer
    Thank you
  4. sometimes feels like groundhog day
    same sadness, fear and pain
    really don't want to be here
    but here i am, AGAIN

    For me, today is f**cked but fun,
    As if a man has slapped me and run
    I'm reeling in shock, laughing in pain
    In fact i don't mind if he slaps me again

    This happiness - not all days I remember
    I try everyday though, stoking the ember.
    And so I really do, truly believe,
    That even the worst can have peace achieved.

    I'm spiraling too far, too fast
    There's just no way to stop this mess
    Dark child is all they see
    They only see the negativity in me
    But there's so much more than meets the eye
    The constant rejection makes me want to cry
    Because you don't see the well of pain within
    You only see my light grow dim
    But if you got to know me, and really gave a damn,
    You'd see I'm not truly who you think I am.
