Daily Prompt: Overwhelming

via Daily Prompt: Overwhelming

Everything, everywhere

All at once

Never ending barrage

Of negativity, woes

Pushing, pulling

Stretching too thin

Overwhelming until one day

There is no more to say

No more to do

No more to give

Daily Prompt: Uneven

via Daily Prompt: Uneven

Ever since you entered my life
the world has tilted precariously
the ground uneven
beneath my feet
If this is what love is
a chaos of emotions
lifting me then dropping suddenly
only to be lifted once again
leaving me breathless, disoriented
I am yours.

Agree to Disagree – Daily Prompt: Disagree

via Daily Prompt: Disagree

“You’re an idiot.”

“What do you mean? I did everything I was suppose to do. Why is that wrong?”

“Because you don’t agree with the procedure. You think it’s wrong, so why do it that way? Why not do it the way you know is right?”

“Just because I disagree with what I’m being told to do, doesn’t mean it’s the wrong way. It just means I don’t necessarily my way.”

“It’s not right.”

“Why do you say that?”

“We should be free to do things the way we want to do them.”

“Who says we can’t?”


“Look. Right now, this project is not mine. It’s the company’s. My boss told me he wanted it done in a certain way. Do I think there is a better way? Sure! Is what I am doing morally wrong or going to hurt someone? No. So we do it my boss’s way. Maybe it will work, maybe it won’t. If it doesn’t then the higher-ups will be more acceptable to trying my idea. Either way, it has to be done.”

“If you ask me it’s a waste of time.”

“Maybe. We’ll see. I have to get back to work. Let’s just agree to degree and leave it at that. Okay?”

*sigh* Okay. But mark my words. Your way is better.


I’m going, I’m going.

When I thought of the word ‘disagree’ this is the conversation that came to my head. It’s one we’ve probably all had at one time or another.
