Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


25 April 2014



“Find the joy” advice oversimplified,

angers me because of all that it implies.

Have you heard anything that I have said?

You dismiss my feelings, philosophize instead,

dangling epigrams, wisdom you employ –

find the joy.


Imperatives don’t take into account,

the vagaries of my despair and doubt,

thoughts and feelings I wrestle with each day,

just wave a magic wand and it’s okay.

Don’t patronize me like a little boy,

find the joy.
