Seizure Trouble

A seizure stirs up trouble in my brain
beginning with an aura in my mind.
I fight against it but it will not wane.

Again here comes familiar neuro-rain,
a thunder and a lightning. I’m left blind
from seizure stirring trouble in my brain.

My consciousness becomes a tiny grain
of what I knew before, now realigned.
I fight against it but it will not wane.

No matter how I push or pull or strain,
no matter how I try, I cannot find
how seizure stirs up trouble in my brain.

Intelligence and speech swirl down the drain,
the charges in my brain fall well-behind.
I fight against this but it will not wane.

What can I learn from this? What can I gain
from epilepsy, how it underlined
the seizure stirring trouble in my brain?
I cannot win the fight. It will not wane.

Hidden Words

Long-hidden words now peek from in the tree
and show their faces just a little bit.
If I look up, their golden shine I see.

Collect them, put them in your waiting kit,
and use the words for poems that you’ll
write.
You need a poem once a day. Don’t quit.

Keep watching all your words appear, take flight,
improve in quality and excellence
until they see the morning, not the night.
