My New Year Poem Can Be Found — Here
I think a lot but I don’t say too much
Feel a lot and don’t express enough
Don’t sleep a lot I know that’s not good
If I ease enough I know that I would
Mind is racing head is aching
Dreams are fussy while not relating
Waking up dazed is not a great thing
Piecing it together is very much draining
I’ve been put on, yes I was put on
Twelve a day but what could I say, I was not the expert.
They put me on, yes they had put me on
That almost took my life away over the course of some days.
I told them, yes I told them about it
But who seemed affected by the slip-up and who cared my time was almost up?
I did research, yes I always research
But this one had slipped me and when I finally did
What did I see?
The side effects, yes all these side effects
That my heart couldn’t take but I managed to eradicate.
The poison, yes that very poison
That I had once avoided at all costs but had now put my trust in these brick walls.
Do I mean people? Yes, those brick walls are people.
The ones that fend for themselves without a care for anyone else.
Years later, yes all these years later
With all these tests, notes and faces, all the appointments and time wasted.
They have nothing, Yes they all have nothing
If said I found out what’s up I’d be lying so I’ll just shut up.
So I’ll keep on pushing, yes I’ll keep on pushing
I’ve come this far on this rocky road and what’s a life without some heavy load?
One of the worst things that can happen to you is having your time wasted.
Time wasted on “potential things” when you could have been pursuing something solid. Time wasted clinging onto a faulty relationship wishing for that love to be returned. Time wasted waiting on a call back for a job when you could be sending out your CV to many others. You know you function better as a creative in an organized space yet you continue to procrastinate and wallow in an untidy room talking about “writer’s block” or “creative block“. No! Clean your room/office etc and get to work.
I can go on and on but I won’t. The point is, don’t allow people to waste your time and don’t allow yourself to waste your time either. Yes I said don’t allow yourself. Too often we find our self blaming other people when a lot of times we are the cause of our very own demises. Stop, take a breath, take accountability and focus on what you can improve and make the situation better.
I’m no expert but here are some things I keep in mind when I’m about to go after something:
- Always have a plan – Without a plan you’re going in blindly.
- Always have a plan B – Always have a backup in case your initial plan falls apart.
- Remember failure is an opportunity to know what to do and what not to do the next time around.
- Success is a journey not a destination – there is always room to grow and improve.
- Do what you’re passionate about and not what someone else is into – only you can live your life and wasting your life trying to be someone else will only leave you with regrets.
- In everything you do, weigh the pros and cons.
- Your stumbles don’t define you, your willingness does. Don’t give up.
Hope you guys enjoyed this post, thank you for sticking around for so long I appreciate everyone of you, take care and God bless. 🙂
You wanted it.
You applied for it.
You got it.
Now it’s about to be your first day and you’re excited but you’re nervous.
Advice? Just do it.
There is a reason why you first applied and there will be some anxiousness because it’s something new but don’t let that control you.
You know you can do it that’s why you decided to put yourself out there so give yourself a chance and before you know it you’ll be looking back and thinking, “I can’t believe I was afraid of this”.
Little one, your life has just begun
And though the world can be cold
Let your light warm the life of someone
Don’t let your heart be hardened by what may you see
For there’s someone out there looking for the good in somebody
We all want love and we all need a helping hand
You may think you can do it all on your own
But I promise you that’s the biggest self deception of man
White walls now all is bright
Hanging around are fairy lights
The glowing reflections that I see
Calms the anxieties the day has brought me
Yellow, brown and standing tall
Such beauty laid against the walls
Sunny days or gloomy weather
Sunflowers make everything so much better
