Daily Prompt: Clean House

The Daily Prompt states: Is there “junk” in your life? What kind? How do you get rid of it?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us JUNK.

 

Much clutter surrounds me.

I make paths throughout the house,

just to get to my couch.

I hoard junk.

Empty boxes, newspapers with no news,

empty bottles.

All stuff I could easily throw away.

The real clutter comes from others.

Negativity, ignorance, gossip.

None serves a true purpose.

Only hurt.

The physical junk pales in comparison to the emotional.

If I can only escape, I could fill a dumpster with gossip.

Fill the empty boxes with negativity and simply recycle,

into inner peace.

Happiness.

Write happy headlines on the old newspapers,

tell the world I no longer accept the ignorant,

but the happy truth.

  6. There is so much truth in what you have written here. The emotional junk drains us more than the physical junk. May the “happy” truth be ours!

    Emotional baggage are lot more heavier and difficult to dispose off than the physical junk. Very well written.
