New Hair Color

New Hair Color

By: Debra S. Higginbotham, yeah that’s me

Wrapped up in a frenzy, of mindless emotions,
logic escapes me, common sense is scant!
So tolerate me, indulge me and humor me, per se,
as I give in to the whimsy, of a nonsensical rant!

Politicians bore me (and anger me) – it’s true …
the news is alarming (and annoying) – indeed!
The globe warms up, the economy cools down,
and common core math, will make my brain bleed.

Customer service is slacking ~ hackers are hacking!
Wall Street is shaking while the dollar tries falling!
Folks are getting fatter, but does it really matter,
in a health care crisis; that so few find appalling!

So bombs are being built, wars are being fought,
disease is being spread – in a world that’s unsteady!
Terrorism abounds – – while new cells are found…
we say that we’re prepared, but are we ever ready?

Now that I depressed you, in this paranoid vent…
Oh how shall I conclude – – with a positive slant?
Prayer will surely help! Hugs and smiles go far.
And when overwhelmed –go do for those who can’t.

As always, make champion choices,
The Healthy Habit Lady

  1. This is beautiful! I can relate to a lot of this. The politicians lie and no news is good news it seems anymore!!


  2. This is my first visit here and I like your raw humor and honesty. Your pictures are great and you look dynamite! Your poem is pretty cool.


  3. Couldn’t have said it better myself! And I love the positive slant you concluded with. Very talented writing 🙂


  4. The reality is that we can’t believe that any of what we hear is truth. Relationships must be based on trust that what we are told is true. The Word of God is the only thing that brings peace to my life. Today, The Lord directed me to Philippians 4: 4-9. It will certainly calm the frenzy. God bless you for sharing your thoughts in such a poignant way.

  5. Very cute! This is a very honest post! I think that the media and events taking place are negative and depressing! With God on our minds and in our hearts He can help us to focus on His love and mercy! Thanks for sharing, have a great weekend!


  6. Love it!
