L is for lackadaisical

Lately I have felt lackadaisical in everything

Like I am out of touch or missing the swing

Everything is slowed down and yet hysterical

I feel my tune is off, I am just not feeling lyrical


It is unsettling to be sure and demoralising

It can create mood swings that I am despising

I have hopes that this too will begin to ease

To bring me back to being less easy to displease


I can be lackadaisical in my own heart self care

Not nurturing my own internal emotional flare

I have tended to dwell too easily in the lack

Now I am making my way very slowly back


Does that make me really and truly lazy?

Or is my path just too blurred and hazy?

For an easy passage through the oft vapid

And to find my own pool of  needed placid

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.

    1. Me too – change of meds and some transition time and I hope for more happy moods to write about – although I chose some because I love the word like lackadaisical was a hard win over laconic lol thanks!!
