Positive Thinking

Where did it go ??

Just looking through my phone and found this word vomit poem I wrote few months back. Thought I’d share it.

What do you do when you lose your mind,

Where did it go? I must of left it behind,

Will it return if I stay in my bed,

Duvet,pillows, will I find my head,

Embracing all negative thinking,

Darkness, hatred completely sinking,

Time pasting like ships on ice,

Come on mind why can’t you be nice,

Here I am waiting for thee,

Seriously where could you be,

Out of the sky down it flew,

Managing to smash my view,

Suddenly I knew what to do,

It was here all along trying to breathe,

Wrapped in pain not able to leave,

I have no one else to blame,

I have been totally lame,

This is the moment to take back control,

Life can better, full of rock and roll,

Like a toddler learning to walk,

One step at a time learning to talk,

Building blocks gaining height,

TrustingΒ that everything will be alright.

  1. That’s some pretty good vomit there. πŸ™‚ Feel free to vomit again. lol

    One of the 4 noble truths taught by the Buddha is that of impermanence. Depending on how you look at it, it could sad or happy, but really the truth is just the truth and we get to choose the emotions we attach to it. So while it might be sad that good times don’t last, neither does the bad. Take heart for you will rise again, and maybe you will fall too, but knowing that all is impermanence maybe you can find more peace in the moment. πŸ™‚

      1. No worries. I know what it’s like to put out something creative onto the interwebs…it’s a lot more of a vulnerable feeling than just writing a few paragraphs even when those paragraphs are personal. I guess it’s more like showing somebody art.

        But I say if you like writing poetry, I think one of the ways you get better is by getting over the fear of self-expression and so the more you get comfortable with sharing that part of yourself the better you get.

        I thought your poem flowed nicely and spoke to me because I like introspection and endings that are hopeful. πŸ™‚
