MIDDAY POETRY – “The Whiff Of Sanity”

Impecable with words
Diplomats on the screen
Doing the right thing
Seemingly a good idea


Charity of rolled out drugs
Given freely like lollies
No time to feed the mouse
The dragon has escaped

Off the charts statistics
Feeding fearful minds
Vulnerable when frightened
Gullible to accept all said


Crosses from a cemetery
Filling up town square
Who can see through the veil
When confronted with death

Dimmed lights in the mental fog
Get that air filter on the face
Plexiglass to avoid human contact
No touch or even scratch


Without question smother your hands
With those toxic chemicals in a tube
Washing is not necessary any more
Politely obey rules made to save you

Early onset of bonkers
Sanity not sanitation

MIDDAY POETRY – “Being You”

After a rather long pause here is a fresh piece of my mind and heart…enjoy and feel free to like, share and comment. Thank you.

The day has come to tell you
There is no-one just like you
You are here only for a while
So drop that frown and smile

The best of who you are
The essence of your being
Extends out into the air
Trust and love and care

The day you came into the world
The sun have been rather high
Telling clouds with heavens view
To expect the perfect you

Watch out for the sign
One that only you can see
Every day in the mirrored sand
Giving you a helping hand

The image showing wear and tear
With every year gone past
The heart is what you cannot fool
Shining bright and keeping cool

Blood full of life
Throbbing through the veins
You are the one to hear
The message bar of fear

Come to center of the truth
No-one else can live your life
What you need is not new you
Yet one kiss and hug will do

Take off the mask and face it!

WHO IS YOUR REAL ENEMY?

This might seem to be a question that you think you know the answer to. If anyone popped up in your mind when reading the question they surely would not make it to a list of people you would rely on.

Life is an interesting adventure. Some call it a game. Others think this life is a punishment. Whatever is your take on life, life is best lived. Life challenges make us grow stronger wings. And flying is the ultimate of gifts which we don’t seem to be mastering without an engine. At least not yet.

So, who really is your ultimate enemy?

Enemy, who wakes you up in sweat in the middle of the night. Enemy, whose voice is so difficult to hear. The one who seems to know you so well. The one who doesn’t let you go anywhere on your own. You are never alone. They are watching every step, every breath you take.

WHO is it?

See if you can relate: Your INTERNAL critic! The voice that we hear every day, almost in every moment of our waking time.
Criticizing our past decisions, actions, future endeavours, ideas…and in the process, creating insecurities and anxieties.

Now, if you don’t have one of these internal voices, you are a very fortunate being.

However, for those of you, who can relate to the above here are some personal tips and well known strategies.

How to deal with your enemy with some extraordinary strategies

  1. Accept it as part of your personal journey.
  2. Recall who in your past could have the same kind of voice.
  3. Learn to change the tonality in which their voice speaks to you.
  4. Bring some fun into their existence (e.g. in your mind’s eye, imagine it as a movie character with a husky voice).
  5. Turn an imaginary knob and tune out the sound of this voice and replace it by some harmonious sounds.
  6. Appreciate that its primary function was to preserve your safety.
  7. Kindly explain to the voice (only in your head preferably) that you will be fine even without his suggestions.
  8. As the saying goes: “Feel the fear and do it anyway!”
  9. Become aware of when the voice takes over your moments.
  10. Learn to love the ‘enemy’.
