The Lessons Missing

Listening to a true crime podcast,

Because I never want to be too comfortable.

I think of the criminal, so called,

And wonder what they would feel

if their family were victims?

And then,

What would happen if children,

Before school became a burden,

Were asked to sit with uncomfortable feelings.

With a simple question,

Can you imagine how it feels???

We want to make children stronger,

But we leave this gapping weakness

So that when feelings overpower,

We are helpless to them,

And thus there is no shortage

Of true crime podcasts.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
