A Poem About The News | Views On The News

Views On The News

“I cannot read the news,” she said.
It makes me feel quite down.
The propaganda and hateful views
Make the loudest sounds.

Issues raised but left untouched;
The cures which we all hunt.
Nothing seems to matter much
Without a celebrity front.

And not just front, as you well know,
The stuff they choose to share
Involves those with no greater skill
Than an overstuffed derrière.

I don’t know how we make the change
To make good stories stick.
I’m sure the editors will explain
What matters are the clicks.

So I must now vote with my feet.
Perhaps they might take heed.
Whilst women are heralded as pieces of meat
I simply will not read.

Views On The News is a short poem written by Ms Moem


Dealing With Disappointment

by Ms Moem on November 13, 2014

in life

Dealing with disappointment is a tricky thing. It is never nice to have your hopes and expectations dashed.

Disappointment comes when you have allowed yourself to believe that something will happen, and it turns out not to be the case.

It is very easy to allow this disappointment to consume you and to become a beast that sucks away your positivity. But life will always throw a curve ball your way. You just have to remain focused and realise that just because something didn’t turn out the way you expected it to, it doesn’t mean that that door is now closed. And even if it is, it doesn’t have to be the end of the world.

Perhaps it is just a case of reformulating a plan, or seeing if there is a different way to get there.

If there isn’t a way of making it happen, maybe you need to look at adjusting your expectations.

In any case, disappointment is disappointing, but it is important not to let it tear you down completely. Have a moment to rage about it if you must and then put it to bed. Dwelling on stuff never helped anyone!

Use the energy you would have spent feeling cross or deflated and instead channel it towards your revised plan or new course of action. It is the only way to move forward.

How do you deal with disappointment?
