Poems about Health

Hit me like a ton of bricks. Sucked the air out of my lungs.  Suckerpunched me in the face.
The new season      poured in over her    and autumn
My brain is broken At least that’s what I thought My brain is broken My time has been bought  
With each passing day greenhouse gases will rise, Smog-filled air and runoff leading to Earth’s demise,
With each passing day greenhouse gases will rise, Smog-filled air and runoff causing Earth’s demise,
Grateful as I am for a new day, I cannot help by feel the failures of yesterday,
For years and years I was filled with fear
Porcelain Doll hidden between thorny leaves and puppet string on forgotten dusty shelf coerced beneath the
I threw my blanket over my head And snoozed the alarm above my bed
Drip, Drip, Drip… Up my arm the fluids go. Tick, tock, tick… Slowly time whittles away.
