Romana Bereneth – A local “working” musician – writer

I am employed at the moment, however, at times I am a self supported musician. With the times uncertain as they are, direct action get the goods! So to be of service, I will be selecting local musicians, writers and poets to basically, adopt.

All sales of my creative work for the duration of this health emergency, will go to local folks who have had all their work canceled.

You can donate via PAYPAL by going going here ——> CLICK HERE

or support Romana directly by buying her musical work from Bandcamp or by purchasing one of her books from Amazon. She writes under the pen name, M.L. Mcintosh. Go here ——-> CLICK HERE

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?

Is what gets me in trouble!
Because sometimes I am bitter –
& mean. Hypocrisy
fights me into dark corners.
So, that is what is partly on my mind.
As I walk a lonesome brick street
of this neighborhood where once
I went crazy. Dropped acid and lived
to talk about it. & now under this
waning early summer moon, yes
I am feeling sorry for myself,
because this is all about me.
We are all only human …
This darkness that sometimes
we all slip into?
Some know to bite
their tongues and just deal with it.
Some can’t speak softly when peace
is at risk. Some die from trying
to tread softly on middle ground.
What is really on my mind is a truth that
is hard to swallow. My own medicine would
kill any preacher, caught in his own empty
church.
I & You and me and them
and this machine, playing on our vanity.
Mentioning our fears, showing us images
that we have no control over. Images stolen
from broken dreams, war and death, violence.
Our memories thrown in our faces, first thing
in the morning when we are not even ready
for what we may not know was in the past
haunting.
What is on my mind?
Is what I was told long ago.
This world is not fair.
You have to work hard for what you love.
Speak your mind, except be careful with truth,
sometimes it hurts and can be
used against you like poison.
