Bloganuary Week 1: Earthling and Angel Conversation (a poem)

Hello and welcome to my blog! How are your new year’s resolutions or January goals going? Mine are going well, but not 100%… I wrote down a weekly planner to follow during January, and I am following the work-related goals, which is my focus this year, for my business to thrive. The habit-building aspect is going well except for drinking water and meditating. Maybe because there are so many habits to work on, but they’re all equally important to me.

Also, I noticed this voice in my head keeps telling me im not happy and I want out. I’m no longer willing to put in the energy to fix my marriage. Sometimes I find myself apologizing for being a raging hormonal maniac, and other times I just avoid sitting with him and doing my own thing. Mornings aren’t productive unless I stay up after 6 am, but then I crash later on during the day. Today I woke up at 10 am, ate breakfast, and went back to bed. I’m in a lot of back pain today, but im determined to get my tasks of the day done. I already did my reading tasks. The exercise and meditation helped with my back spasms.

I wrote this poem a few days ago about a conversation between an earthling and an angel, both unsatisfied with their lives. The analogy is that we always compare our lives to others and think they live better lives, instead of appreciating what we have.

Earthling:

You’re living in the clouds
So you must be
Living so much better
Than the ones you see

Living down on the ground
Were dreaming out loud
But you’re living the dream

Angel:

Well, not really
I get bored here all the time
There isn’t much to do
Except from time to time
To look down onto you

I wonder how you feel
I see you working hard
And every night I see
You staring at the stars

Earthling:

My head’s up in the clouds
But my feet are on the floor
Should I build a ladder to the clouds
Or a paradise on Earth?

Angel:

I admire all the colors I see
From your vegetables and trees
You must be so lucky
To be surrounded by greenery

Earthling:

But you have peace up there
No humans to ruin your day
You’re literally floating on air
No conflict or controversy

Angel:

It’s so lonely up here
There’s nothing but clouds
I’m spending all my days
Dreaming out loud
Of going down there
To see what it’s like

Earthling:

Its a world of chaos, pollution, and pain
And you work so hard, sometimes in vain

Angel:

But you have love that heals
And a purpose to exist

Earthling:

Maybe we can switch places
Even if for just a day

Angel:

Maybe just know our place
And appreciate where we stay

I hope you enjoyed this poem. For more poems on the blog, click here.

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter and check out my books on Amazon, maybe buy one. Also if you’re into online shopping, I have 3 different online shops with different designs. Please check them out and maybe buy something if you like it. If you are going to buy 100$ worth of my eco-friendly shop, let me know so I can send you a 10$ coupon code or a free enamel mug. If you are going to buy with less than 100$ but more than 50$, let me know so I can send you a 5$ coupon code. There is only 1 coupon of each available for a limited time so hurry up and grab yours. There are other sales on my red bubble shop but I don’t make them. Right now if you buy 2 throw pillows on redbubble, you get 15% off. As for the gumroad shop, I’m figuring out the ins and outs but I think the same coupon codes apply because printful (where I make the designs) provides the coupons.

  1. You have captured the essence of this feeling that the lives of other we see must be better than ours. Great writing

  2. I absolutely loved the poem…we always think grass is greener on the other side…but perhaps we need to observe and appreciate our own surroundings a bit more. ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“

    1. Thank you! So true. The grass is greener where you water it, unless it’s fake grass!
