afraid
to open the paper
if it just sits over there
in its little blue plastic bag
I’m safe
afraid
to turn on the t.v.
if it just stays dark
keeps it’s images and talk talk talk
to itself
I’m safe
afraid
to turn on the radio
hear that scary “we interrupt this program”
I’m safe
won’t even look at a.o.l. news
won’t
I can just
sit here
not knowing what’s happening
not facing
or
dealing
or thinking
or wondering or being
afraid
but
I
am
damn it to hell anyways
I am

Josie dear...you are not alone.

on a lighter note. I have been thinking for a word for your poetry - couldnt put my finger on it, but it was on the tip of my tongue. La Belle got it..."spontaneous and true to live!"

i hear you, josie...don't be scared...you aren't the only one feeling like this. i have to be informed...i'd rather know than not. the news on t.v. scares me worse...especially since 9-11...on and on and on they go. the newspaper, i can read it once and throw it away. :) powerful, emotional write that many can relate to...((((((HUGS)))))) and let's PRAY FOR PEACE...love, karla. :)

Hi, I am still sorry about my error yesterday. I want to say you are not alone with these feelings. But what is done is done. I worry for my Americans. I know I should worry about all, and I do. But my troops come first.
Your writing was excellent!!!
