Emotion Poetry by Justin M.

At SEEDs for Autism, we recognize poetry as a powerful form of communication. Writing poetry encourages creativity and self-expression. Poetry helps us grow emotionally and intellectually as we examine our thoughts and feelings in a symbolic way.  In this post, Justin M. explores a range of complex emotions as seen through the window of his senses.

The episode itself is amazing. It takes place in a 1920’s version of Central city and modern day 2017 central city. It is a great balance of action and song. Darren Criss plays Music Meister, a guy who at first comes off as an odd ball and bit of an antagonist. He puts Barry Allen aka the Flash into a coma like state and he wakes up in a musical. Melissa Benoist sings “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  The Next song that pops up is “Put a little love in your heart” performed by Carlos Valdes, John Barrowman, Jeremy Jordan, Darren Criss and more. I might have missed them pull off one the best scenes I have seen so far in The Flash and Supergirl. It left me feeling a lot of joy. I would love to see more Episodes like this. The fourth song that appears is “More I Cannot Wish You” sung by Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, and John Barrowmen. By the end of the episode it was revealed that Music Meister only did what he did to fix 2 broken hearts. So, to me he is the guy that has a song in his heart. The Music Meister pops up where and whenever he is needed to help others like Barry and Kara as they both had hearts that were hurting. The last song was called “Running home to you” sung by Grant Gustin. All in all the cast looked like they had lot of fun, and I can’t wait see what they do next!

Moon River

Put a little love in your heart.

I’m your Super friend

More I Cannot Wish You

Running home to you

Love

Love : Love means so many things, and elicits so many emotions. It is the source of ideas, dreams, goals, desires, frustration, and happiness. When you are lucky enough to love something or someone, you allow yourself to be vulnerable, learn, share a common bond, sometimes become disappointed, and ultimately grow as a person. So many  people let past experiences prevent themselves to let someone or something close enough to enjoy the feeling. True love does take work, commitment, grit, tenacity and the support of others. Personally, I believe that love is absolutely the most important emotion to feel. It is what drives me. When
I feel love, I am able to be supportive of others because I want them to also experience the joy and rush from what results. Love equals happiness, and happiness is positive, and therefore being positive is when we can focus on outcomes.

The outcomes of watching or helping someone else succeed is one of the greatest forms of love, because you cheer them on, you believe in them, you help them reach their goals, you grow yourself as a person, and your heart then truly knows the meaning of love comes from giving of yourself.

So, I challenge everyone to let go of the reasons that hold you back experiencing love…..whether it is you’d love to start that hobby, get in better shape, take a class, volunteer, or be a better friend, wife, husband, daughter, or son. Allow yourself to feel that wonderful and powerful feeling. Stop holding yourself back, and experience that goose bumpy, tingly, giggly, smile that you WILL absolutely experience from sharing a part of you with someone or something. Stop fretting, grumbling, arguing, making excuses looking down on others, complaining about how bad everything is…. the internal happy giddy smile is in there, and it feels oh so good when YOU feel it.

Warning: It is also contagious
