Insanities Prayer *

Confused

Thinking

Shallow

Breathing

Frustration

Growing

Mind

Running

Wild

GOD help me TODAY!!

Seeking

Escape

Slowly

Exhaling

Closing

Eyes

Simple

Regression

Breathing

Deeply

Insanity rests,

As God whispers,

Hush.

*Note: who hasn’t felt this way one time or another in their lives. That feeling where all is lost and life seems to be insane at that moment, this is how I have coped with it, perhaps you have too. I always loved this song by George Harrison

This isn’t a new poem, it was posted earlier when I first started my blog.

I’m sharing it for Reena’s prompt:

PTSD (acrostic) *

*Note: The 3 minute video link is worth every second of your time.

So, does PTSD ever go away? No, but with effective evidence-based treatment, symptoms can be managed well and can remain dormant for years, even decades. But because the trauma that evokes the symptoms will never go away, there is a possibility for those symptoms to be “triggered” again in the future.

🌎 ✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

Musical Soliloquy (tanka)*

hands play sorrows song~

painful memories linger~

earth quakes smoke fills sky~

day’s devastation abounds~

ash’s rise wind scatters lost lives~

*Note: The term “casualties of war” has been around for a while and refers to the ugly downside of military victory, often those who just wish to live their daily lives in peace. I present this song titled River Of Sorrow played on a kokyū (胡弓) can also be cross referenced with Erhu (it is the only Japanese instrument played with a bow: for more information click the link https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kokyū) which the man is playing in the photo. As always 🌎 ✌🏻💙 may it someday prevail. Take care, be safe.

The Deadly Knot *

There were many different

knots to choose from,

much easier choices that

could have been made.

This particular one’s

structural make up so

complex to explain,

without a microbiology

degree. A twisted three stem

pseudoknot part of CoV19 RNA.

A worldwide microbe

killing machine.

*Note: my song choice is by Slipknot

SARS-CoV (the coronavirus responsible for SARS) and SARS-CoV-2 possess a unique RNA structure, a three-stemmed pseudoknot, that stimulates -1 PRF. Recent experiments identified that small molecules can be introduced as antiviral agents to bind with the pseudoknot and disrupt its stimulation of -1 PRF.Sep 15, 2020
