Lonely

Part of the problem with the word ‘disabilities’ is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can’t feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren’t able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities.

Fred Rogers

lonely child
all alone
birds fly
scattered brain
joy eludes
tears remain
hands tied
behind back
circle over
counter attack

Six-word story #?

Set my self up for this.

(Lost track of how many “six-word stories” written and honestly too lazy to care. But there. They exist. Six words. Six.)

And really, i jotted them down so i could share Adele’s song “Chasing Pavements”. ☺️🌏🧡

By the way, six-word story or six word story?
