Insecurity Insecurity

Poem By Gregory Huyette

Insecurity, insecurity you won’t guide my life
As a dominating husband or ever nagging wife.
As my child I’ll not allow you to rudely interfere,
Reversing my role as parent hoping you’ll stay near.

Nor will you serve as a parent, who can’t leave me alone,
Making me wistful of my past and unsure of what I own.
Whether sister, brother or other, no one else will defame
My worth and sense of self for which only I lay claim.

Insecurity, insecurity the more I know myself the less you rule.
Seeing what is possible means you won’t make me your fool.
Only when I see my value through the mirror of my mind
Will I know of what I’m sure with its future that I’ll find.

Love Yourself

LOVE STARTS WITH YOU AND HAS NO END.
IT BEGINS WHEN YOU LOVE YOUR LIFE’S BEST FRIEND.
LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND WHO DO YOU SEE?
HOPEFULLY, YOU’LL SMILE AND WINK PROUDLY.

Denial

Denial is a river I know so well
For it flows deep in my veins.
It’s my partner when lonely,
Defender in conflict and doctor for my pains.

A Higher Force Demands

My life is ensconced
With the humdrum of each day.
To work, eat and recreate
Is my chosen way.

Live Before You Die

There are those who collect objects instead of human kind
Like paper, cans and fence posts or anything they find.

Alone In The Crowd

Though people surround me, I feel alone.
As if on an island all on my own.
I hear them talk, but they’re not speaking to me.
They’re using language of another country.

Live In The Moment

Listen, feel, love completely;
Absorb, enjoy oh so sweetly.
Nothing exists but right now.
Show the world you know how.
