talk therapy

it does not take

a licensed counselor

to make you feel good


sometimes a call to a friend

and a friendly talk

will do wonders


I was once in the dumps

feeling bad about myself

when a friend from another town

called me


he knew

I was feeling down

he told me a joke

and I laughed and laughed

and my mood shifted

and the day became better


talk therapy

may also be done

with a pet

pets seem to listen

and not argue


be your own

best friend

find ways to feel good

about yourself

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
