A Little Poem

Published March 31, 2022 by Nan Mykel

WANTING TO BELIEVE

On the farm, at five, I remember

both realising and regretting

that no one else could share

my experience, that each of us

is separate.  I still regret it.

 

As a youth, at bedtime, I would

sometimes hold one arm up

in the air for minutes. Any

involuntary movement of my arm

might be by God.

 

One day while in college I

had a flash, a “knowing” that we

are all together in our dreams.

Hungry for connection, I still hope

for something to be true.

Puzzled, Troubled and Questioning

Published January 6, 2018 by Nan Mykel

I’d like to hear from you about the dichotomy between what we say about empathy, especially for mentally confused individuals and how much glee most everyone takes in belittling and personal name-calling back the president. Sure, he hurts people. It’s like what we do at war: dehumanize the enemy so they become a non-human being.  I’m really talking about myself. I do it too, but every now and then I flip and experience what he and his family must feel about being insulted back by everyone.  Don’t get me wrong; I’m a Democrat, but I just wonder how our two different behaviors and belief systems can occur together.
