Reaction ….

Reaction
Typical the light turned red
I haven’t time to get things done
Why does that woman stand and chat instead
of move along the queue, can’t she see it’s not fun
Nobody understands my stress
The kids have left the house a mess
Everyone’s on the road today
Why is my computer slow – it’s causing me time delay
I haven’t time to get things done

These thoughts
add to anxiety and stress
Roil the hormones – nerves a mess
Reinforce the status quo
I am so distressed I knew – I know
There isn’t enough time to get things done
If only there were another way to get things done today

The light is red
Nothing to be done – relax regroup you can’t run
In that queue stand and plan or smile and breath
Relax the shoulders remember time can’t be outdone
Panic just wastes time causes stress
Plans awry then stop and think
What makes the difference between swim or sink?

The true cause of our emotional reaction

to events is our own thoughts.

Life confounds

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure , pain, joy
and heartbreak
do the rounds

Would that our lives
could, just be pleasure
No pain or woe
for us to measure.

Why is it, things
go so wrong
bad things happen
regardless just be strong

How do I deal
with the days
that are black
when the roof
caves in
the cheque
bounces back

I have to dig deep
in my reserve
in my internal resevoir
my beliefs must serve

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure, pain, joy
and heartbreak
life can confound

Soliloquy

Serendipitous soliloquy
Does this tirade scan iambically
I pace the floor shouting my declaimation
Trying to rid myself of my consternation

You swore you loved me, chased and wooed me
I began to trust became your devotee
How could I become sucked in to this morass
I feel a sad rejected lass

My ego has nose dived my world has rocked
I am feeling such dismay my system is shocked
This drama is unfolding as I play my scene
Wishing like Shakespeare the villain could intervene

Or at least eavesdrop on this great soliloquy
Instead of an audience composed of just me
I hope across the ether the echoes resonate
Making you aware of my solitary debate
