Feeling Sorry For Ourselves Makes Us Think

Updated on May 16, 2012

Battle Over Our Emotions

What have we done wrong ?

What we have done right ?

How each of us has played our own role in life

As we mix in with the distractions of our day

We can follow each one and disappear

Only to reappear years later no more wiser no more richier

Then we have a new choice

One we have not seen before

To let all the distractions criss cross and intimidate

We are stronger now

We are not as easily infuenced to go

As th t.v. plays

We can hear and see over two hundred channels at our finger tips

Each one a choice

They are the biggest distractions in our life

It takes will power to turnaway a relaxing day

When within our reach is so much more

Like rain drops falling from the sky

A great reason to run and move quicker than before

It is the only way to stay dry

If we stand still we will get swept up in the moment

It won't be long before we are soaking wet

When watching other people you will see they have made many dfferent choices

When the rain came

They soon changed their minds and followed a leader

One who has made up his mind

To go where few people go

To reach beyond what few people know

When all the answers are written out

We just have to read them one at a time

Internalizing each one so it becomes part of us

So that we may go on our day with a new enthusiasm and off to a world of play

      Dim Flaxenwick If it doesn't work you can always go back out in the rain and think some more.At least you will cool off and wash away any mistakes and have a refreshing wet new start.

      This was interesting. I loved the way you described the decision making needed on a rainy day.

      Great work as always.
