Trust Me

..

Shed your shoulds,
shrug your shoulders
and smile at that
brilliant sun.

Step on cracks, crack open
the sky, run
with scissors, cut a
…………rug.

Don’t just smell the flowers,
Love. Dig your fingers into
…..feral soil,
and grow ’em.

And when all else is
all but lost,
you should
………………poem.

  1. Absolutely beautiful. It makes me want to be a kid again. Smell flowers without fear of spiders, run without fear of falling and get dirty but be impervious to dirt. Amazing poem. Thank you for putting a bit of an extra bounce in my step today!

    I totally misread the opening as “shed your shoulders,” which I love. Shoulders carry the weight of responsibility. So if you get rid of your shoulders, you’re off the hook, right? 🙂

    I love the last stanza.

    I’m afraid all else IS lost.

  3. I love the rhyming of poem with grow ’em! Great advice in this one!
