compassion Joan Winifred lamentations of the heart poetry


gimme a break!!…gag me (as they say in the 80’s)

(oh yeah, they — the flatliners did 😉 or… so, they thought…nope, you’re right…they don’t think…for themselves; just programmed/media/puppet/hater thoughts

EVERYBODY thinks they rule and not just the superpowers

(that’s the sad joke of it all; slaves “believing” they’re their own masters 🙁 : ( 🙁

and bossing around

me (or they try) like they’re free to speak!

get lost with the hate, the smoke, you’re blowing up my nose…

i’m sneezing and my eyes tearing!

why try?? why oppose it?! Why not conform joanie?

when majority’s polluting air, ruining land?

it’s hard work playing nice, keeping it pure, fresh…swimming UP stream…

how else is a girl gonna breathe???


how else do i keep living???

tell me…

you can’t??

did they gag you too?!?

sorry, but  i’m only silenced by

my omega

and alpha…

the infinite wisdom.

why won’t YOU

bow to compassion?!

i do.

our beautiful planet

is crying out

heart break and heart ache

attitude Joan Winifred lamentations of the heart

you give your best and more for years …

then the  never satisfied taker(s) still ain’t happy with You

and want(s) to throw you away…on a mere whim of a moment’s notice…

all the pain and suffering, time invested-hard labor in fulfilling your end

and selfishness and injustice, toxicity stomps my heart relentlessly…

“Wake up, you drunkards, and weep!

Wail, all you wine drinkers,

Because the sweet wine has been taken from your mouths.

For a nation has come up into my land, mighty and without number.

Its teeth are the teeth of a lion, and its jaws are those of a lion.

It has devastated my vine and turned my fig tree into a stump,

Stripping them completely bare and tossing them aside,

Leaving their twigs white.

wail as a virgin wearing sackcloth does

For the bridegroom of her youth.”

(Joel 1:5-9)

Wailing!.. crying, i have my deep reasons to rejoice at all times!!!…no matter the hurt, the rejection, the affliction, the injustice…oh, and the pain…emotional or otherwise. When facing these and opposition… become as hard as a diamond, joan is a stone (yet not insensitive nor ruthless) remaining ever grateful (and patiently waiting/hoping).

Just try to toss me or skip me about…and see..

And I said: “Alas, O Sovereign Lord Jehovah! They are saying about me, ‘Is he not just speaking in riddles (proverbial sayings)?'”

i LOVE these comforting verses:

“Come to me, all you who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh You.”

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am mild-tempered and lowly in heart, and you will find refreshment for yourselves.”

“For my yoke is kindly (or easy to bear) and my load is light.” (Matthew 11:28- 30)

*** mild-tempered & lowly in heart…my TRUE friends***
