Why Do I Shout?

Written for:  April 2022 PAD Challenge - Day 27

"Write a remix poem.  Take one of your poems and remix it, e.g.
change form."

(Remix of Day 15 - Patience poem)

Why do I shout
at him?  My patience
wears thin, but
he is not at fault.
Meditation slows
my breathing, calms
a racing heart. A deep
breath in, and slow
breath out relieves 
that state of anxiety
over a situation I can
do nothing about.  A
progressive disease 
takes its toll on 
the one who suffers, 
and the others
who watch.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
