"My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning, and I go to bed at night. In between I occupy myself as best I can." - Cary Grant


As sudden as a gunshot, a sharp pain
Shoots through my body nearly crippling
Me. Patience- as I wait for it to wane,
I cry the pain results in tripling.
A thorny rosebush blossoms into me,
Pricking and irritating my inside
As I throw my head back in retreat
To fix the abashed and sorely bruised pride.
Recovering is a trick I learn fast.
The thorns leave my body surely but slow.
I’m aware that this will not be the last,
Yet I know that no faster will I go.
Soap in the eyes will sting for an hour,
So slow down when washing in the shower.

I wrote this for class, and it came to me while I was showering...luckily I didn't actually get soap in my eyes.

No, thank you for saying you liked it! :)

I love writing, and then adding any kind of imagery and words to it. Thanks

This is a cleaver poem! I enjoyed the line about your "sorely bruised pride". Thanks for showing that simple subjects can make wonderful poems. :)
