Mess - A Very Short Poem To Explain The Madness In My Head

in poetry •  5 months ago

A07FA8FD-E8CB-4F5F-AF2D-C57DD307316A.jpegIt’s a concern to me
❕That what burdens me
Is the function
❕Of my consumption

And as the stuff stacks
❕Keep buying more crap
Like pretty boxes
To put more junk in.

Hey @lorilikes @lextenebris make some good points doesn't he.

But its good to scream ENOUGH some times : )

The poem is distinctive and beautiful
Well done, my friend

Short and concise. I'm not a poem guy but tell me if am wrong.
You're talking about the allures of unhealthy food and it's consequences

Actually I was talking about how much useless stuff I collect. It’s about being a silly overly addicted consumer of goods. It’s like a sickness in my country. It’s greedy.

Don't think of being a consumer as a negative – think of all the people you're keeping employed. All of the people in production, transportation, retail, garbage disposal. Without consumption, all of them go hungry. Their children don't go to school. They don't get to pay taxes.

Now if you have more stuff than you're comfortable holding onto, that's a different issue, but the problem is not acquiring it. The problem is disposing of it.

You have something useless? Give it to someone that has a use. You'll feel better, they'll feel better, and everybody wins. But let's not paint having things as inherently bad, or wanting things as inherently bad. That ends up being a terrible slight to the people who don't have things and want things.

Wanting is not bad. Wanting is why we do things. Not wanting? That ends up being terribly bad.

I just overdo it when I shouldn’t and I have this organization issue, kinda has always been a major flaw of mine. I get cluttered.

I suddenly realized I have conflicting impulses. One of them is to collect boxes and yet my crazy self has lots of stuff without a place... duh! Why don’t I put the stuff in the boxes.. it’s stupid it’s stupid. I can’t explain it but it’s a dysfunctional segment of my thinking. 😵

Admittedly, my shelves look like something out of a Victorian-era farce, but only because I like to collect little knickknacks and bizarre bits of detritus that have somehow wormed their way into my life. I don't even feel bad about it. For the most part, my bedroom is a library dangling and stacked with bits of history.

You could put stuff in the boxes, and if you worked it out right you could even put boxes in your boxes – but be careful, because that way lies madness.

You have just described the cartoon Merlin’s house in the Sword in The Stone movie. Haha. Sounds magical.

Everyone wants a Matryoshka house! Putting things inside of other things is the best.

Although very short, it's a natural poem, I like with creative minds ..

Rhyming Rhyming words thats what i loved about your poetry. Amazing 😍
Function- Consumption
@lorilikes Good one I like it

I always loved your writing skills but you can see now you don't give upvotes so fake people have left you.... But from my side to always were one of best and you are best in writing keep it up!!

·

Thank you my friend, awww. ✨⭐️

So much stuff lying around can be hard to navigate through. there came a time when i had to declutter and give out some things i probably didn't need anymore. i tried spending less, and i picked up minimalistic living. you should give it a try.

·

Thanks for the idea. I will give a bunch of stuff away. Like a free garage sale. ☺️

·
·

Totally would be worth it after. :-)...
I could come over though, if you plan on giving out your extra cars. ;-p

How's your crypto community doing, Lori?

his poetry is very meaningful, I have said several times that you are my inspiration in writing poetry.
I can not write my blog article there is only poetry, just poetry that I can.
I also know my poetry is still many shortcomings, so from that I keep trying to learn better from big writers like you @lorilikes.

·

You’re doing fine, my friend.

·
·

yes i'm fine

This is really a picture of room of your House or animated images?
This is seriously questionable, if true it stack of luxury goods that are bothering you I am willing to accomodate in my home.
Lol.

·

Not my room.

Yes.. Sorry I am late again. I am still here with those boys.

We are always waiting your new post. But seem the juction priode is too long.

Your poem today is so short then before, but it is so much meaning full.

You are still being a star lite for me. I think if your post is consisted with the only one word as "hi", I will also come to vote and comment .

Thanks to you my beloved friend.

Yesterday was just an episode which complated and has gone by, and the big dream is always in the future, keep look forward friend.

Wish you always cheerful.

Thanks for sharing such beautiful poem.@lorilikes.

Yours: @rikaz87
