But I’m not


I should be sad

But I feel uplifted

I should be scared

But I feel hopeful

I should be upset 

But I feel grateful

I should be perplexed

But I understand

And the only reason for this is my Faith in God

And the outpouring of support from my friends

I feel buoyed by their love

I feel like I’m flying in the rare atmosphere of their care and compassion

And I’m basking in the sunshine of their affection

I should be sad

But I’m not

Tact?   What is that?
Is it a powder
Liquid or gas?

Is it something we eat?
Is it a tool?
I must say
I’’m confused!

I guess it’’s something
Totally new
That I’’ve never heard of
Nor know how to use

And how do you find this thing?
Do you buy it?
Is it expensive?

Do you grow it?
Is it big?
Where can I get it?
You must tell me!

Is it a treasure
That must be found
Do I have to travel
To find the mine?

I know people tell me
I don’’t have tact
But then they don’’t tell me

how I can get some
I’’m tired of the search
I want it now!

Clear as mud!

It’s hard to know what I’m feeling

I feel a flood of emotion
But the feeling itself is clear as mud!

Someone or something has caused this
I know
But what I exactly feel
I couldn’t tell you

It’s something that is taking up space
In my head and heart
I can’t brush it off
It demands attention
But how can I address it
If I don’t even know
What I’m dealing with

I wonder what to do
Do I keep thinking till I figure it out?
Do I talk to someone?
Or do I just experience the confusion
And move on?

These feelings will be resolved
In time
But for now they are as clear as mud!
