THESE GADGETS I DESPISE
TOLD I NEED THEM TO SURVIVE
AS THEY ARE GETTING FLATTER
SO IS OUR MOOD
WHERE IS THE INSPIRATION
NATURE EFFORTLESSLY SHARES
YET DEVICES MUST HAVE
ONE MILLION FEATURES TO CAPTURE OUR
ATTENTION!
FOR ONE SECOND
A CHARGE OF LIGHTNING WOULD CAUSE ME LESS PAIN
YET WHERE IS MY APOLOGY?
SORE FROM THIS TECHNOLOGY
IN AWE OF THIS ENVIRONMENT
STILL, IT'D BE AN HONOUR TO BE STRUCK BY
YOU. MOTHER GAIA
Empty pleasures, too many options and choices that are actually turning us backwards. Looking towards more and more gadgets or material 'goods' for happiness can make you feel so empty. It cannot fulfil what the natural world was made to do.

much louder
was the noise
not aiding my
timid voice.

how to approach
how to not
easy to fuel
the doubt.

easier to shrink away
will leave it like this
just for today
no one will miss.

speed way faster
as I draw my step
backwards
no use of any prep.

As I am back
where I was before,
feeling far worse
as I close the door
behind me.
I'll try tomorrow again.

One day You’ll know
Its for the best because
Nothing
I say
Will make you see so
One day I
Just Hope
That Everything will fall into place
I can feel
The pain
The agony
You try to hide
I can see the glances
we share
I can feel
Your spark
the hope
The suspense
But You strangle me with
Dread
I dont want
The truth
I want to tell you
I want you
Like a good friend
Or
More like a brother
I dont want to be
Someone thats Trapped
And i feel like
I am losing
someone closest to me
I feel like you are
Crazy
Or
Feel alone
Please, I dont want to
stop pretending
I want to
Just ignored it
But
You where a part of me
Even then
I felt it
When we grew up together
You know
We are just friends
So please dont say
I love you
This is a reversible poem The top to bottom is the girls view and (read backwards) the bottom to top is the boys. Read line to line

-My back hurts
,I'm carrying more than my fair share
-It's backwards
,Cause I'm the one saying 'There, there'

-My neck hurts
,Sticking out for these strangers
?Deranged
?Or fed up eating anger

I met a man walking backwards,
head to toe in high viz.
He was happy to ask for directions
and overtook the crowd with ease.

I met a man walking backwards,
telling me what was to come.
'Keep both eyes on the past,' he said,
'for the future is just re-runs.'
My daughter told me of a local man who walks everywhere backwards.  When she told me that hed asked for directions I just cracked up.  I haven't laughed that much in a while.

I've grown into the type of person that says "I will go on with or without you."
Into a person that loses people left and right, but knows that as long as I have myself everything will be alright.
So, why is it I still check everyday for your response?

Guilt and its grave cousin shame
a heavy gnarled ball and chain
on my ankle, holding me back
sinking me into bloodthirsty black.

The world is a backwards place,
Sometimes it seems there is not enough space,
For all of humanity to run a race,
Oh how we've fallen in this case...
But back again we stand,
For such is human nature to demand.

I don't know
If my answer will always be
That I'm afraid of thinking about
Is it safe to say,
you should read this one backwards too. It's a conversation between two people.

Take the time
To be better then fine

Be happy and content
Doing saddest with intent

Play with the rainbows
Bend over backwards
