I write what I feel…

Body and Soul

My body feels drought and rain

My soul feels joy and pain

But some live in the clouds

Behind chemical shrouds

Afraid to display

Heartache and grief

In the mistaken belief

That emotion disclosed

Is weakness exposed

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

    • They refer to mostly guys, macho-men. I do think our world is changing in that respect though, Gran. They aren’t as afraid of showing their feelings as they used to be. 🙂

  3. “…emotion disclosed is weakness exposed.” For some maybe. Still, better out than in.
