Worth – A Poem by Brandon White

Hello Friends,

Here’s another free verse poem for your reading pleasure. I hope you’re well. Feedback is appreciated and welcome!


Worth:

I'm thinking of jumping ship,
but I'm wondering what effect
it will have on my
mental health

What is life without the depressives,
the hallmark card poets,
the passive-aggressive
vegans?

The Colorado ghost,
the British romantic,
the Texas songbird,
where did you go?

Goodbyes are tough
so I’ll cut you some slack,
but because I'm a friend,
I'll leave you with a parting gift:

The poems are better
when you long for something

  1. Brandon! This is quite clever… and I do believe that we allll will recognize our own ‘ghosts’ in these lines. I know I did. Okay. I gotta read it again, because it gave me a wry smile on a smile-less day.
