The Math Lesson

We are now on day two of National Poetry Month. And here’s my poem for today:

The Math Lesson

Daydreams have the power to
turn into illusions or rather
schizophrenic delusions of
grandeur or persecution, all
when the dreamer realizes that
the shortest distance between
two points is a dream that
refuses to come true or
the square root of an
unfulfilled dream sandwiched between
the sum of nonexistent and infinite possibilities.
No, that can’t be right. All the dreamer
has to do is measure the distance between
the hypotenuse of the angle to
where it mirrors the perpendicular
line racing against time, trying to
chase away the sum of all your fears
while wondering if all math problems
have solutions, because it’s quite possible
the answer is zero and there is no
explanation. Math problems have
definite answers, so why is it so
difficult to figure this out? Maybe
it’s best to just give up and not
even try to figure things out because
when will you ever need to use this stuff?

Peace & Love,

About Rosalind Guy

I'm broken & my soul is weary/ my weary soul rebels, fights/ anything & anyone who tries to heal me/I beat my head against a wall of memories/ trying hard to break free from the chain of memories/ I can only be free by saying it so/ i weave a necklace from words and finally/ I find freedom/ free free free. As you can see, words are powerful to me. As Maya Angelou said, words are wallpaper of the soul. I have lots of nightmarish memories that threaten to break me, but I learned a long time ago about the power of words. They can be used to heal and destroy anything that threatens to destroy the person. Words coupled with love have the power to save and heal. I am author of three books: Skinny Dipping in the Pool of Womanhood, Tattered Butterfly Wings, and Blues of a Love Junkie. I am a high school English teacher. I am a former reporter. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a fierce advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who's voices go unheard. Check out my Amazon author page at the following link:
