A New Year’s “Me” Reflection; a Poem

I wandered in my mind, letting out a cry, trying to find out a compelling reason why. Maybe my brain had gone gooey. I was without power to discern a sensible meaning. I was, simply put, unable to respond to the why. Nonsense or sense? Depends from whence it comes; whether it is seen as brilliant or just plain dumb. And that is the human condition, a largely perception based apparition — but not totally.

“Totally,” like you might say in the valley. Totally cool, surfers rule! Is that rad? Have no answer? That is truly sad. Yet perhaps not. Life is a journey, a discovery to learn what’s what. And there is a deadline, before we hit the plot.

Hold your head up to the sky. Think of the rhyme and reason why. Give nary a care about what you cannot change. Why your emotional state derange? Instead, undead in your state of living, ask yourself “What can I change about me? What can I do to generate internal glee? What will lead me to be the me I long to be?

Ah so much to do. Do I have the energy to see it through? So much to learn. So much to see. So much I need to do to self-realize me. But it is attainable. Life is rearrangeable. We can create order without a fuss. We can focus on what we must. It is up to us to act with trust.

Indefinable thoughts flutter in. Thinking about going for the win. Win what? What not? Saddle the horse with a rider in your mind. Gallop to that place divine. Get to your goal, making a worthy arrival. Then develop a new goal and strive with your heart full. You are able.

Go thou now and not just in your head. The time is at hand but will not be forever. Do not be a fair-weather friend to yourself. Do not count on the magic of an elf. You can deliver you if you have faith in the process. Do not digress. Do not waver. Adopt love as your mantra and push forward. Tomorrow is the next today. Do not delay!
