365 Poems: The human poem

Day 255

Last night at book club we were talking about blogs and some of the ladies have never read ... any.

I was not offended, as I read enough blogs for all of us.

So today I'm motivated to share one of my new favs, Humans of New York. They're on Facebook too. I'm totally stealing a post from today because I love it so much. I mean, New York? LOVE. Humans? The original living, breathing, visual performance poems. Check out this guy.

"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?"
"Try your best to deal with life without medicating yourself."
"You mean drugs?"
"I mean drugs, food, shopping, money, whatever. I ain’t judging anybody, either. I was hooked on heroin for years. But now I’ve learned that every feeling will pass if you give it time. And if you learn to deal with your feelings, they’ll pass by faster each time. So don’t rush to cover them up by medicating them. You’ve got to deal with them."

Now go check out this picture and read the caption.
