“Seeking Joy” (2019) – Chapbook – Gloria Mannazzu – 8

WHATEVER IT TAKES

Love life
whatever it takes
whatever it gives
breathe fully
enjoy the breeze
wake up to the beautiful “you”
poetry is everywhere.

AS A STRANGER

As a stranger
in my own life
I see everything as far away
I cannot tell the difference
but I know I have changed
I know I am somewhere else,
same place, different mind.

SAYING NOTHING

What did you say?
Nothing.
So much in a silence
it’s so intense I cannot stand it.
